Well, lunch was a couple of hours ago and dinner is still a ways off. What should I do? SNACKS! That’s right, kids, we’re doing a show all about those in between little morsels of happiness.

Sweet to Savory. New choices and old. We are picking up a little bit of everything for this weeks show, while trying to avoid reading the nutritional contents on the side of the packaging.

Our belts may need to be loosened a bit after this show. It’s time for a snack!

198 – Summertime

Summertime and the living’s easy. Unless you still have to work at a 9 – 5 job, with bills to pay!

On this seasonal episode of ’40 Going On 14′, we’re cranking up the AC and enjoying a cold glass of lemonade. It’s time to talk about the summer!

When we were kids, it meant one thing, but what does it mean to us now? The pool is open and the water’s fine. Let’s dive into the deep end!

197 – Captain Harlock

Pirates have been the stuff of legends for decades. But there’s one pirate that stands out above them all. Not only is he the definition of piracy, but one that travels through space!

This week, we’re taking a trip on the Arcadia, through the animated world of Captain Harlock. From the pages of Japanese manga, onto television screens in the early days of anime, up to modern times with a full length CGI movie. Harlock has done it all.

Hop aboard and let’s fight our way to freedom!

196 – Desserts

We’ve done a lot of food shows, since we started ’40 Going On 14′. All of the various courses have been covered, but there’s one thing we’ve continually failed to miss. Desert!

For this episode, all of us have eaten our fill of everything else and are ready for something sweet. Whether it’s cookies or cakes or pies, oh my!

If you tend to drool over the end of every meal, then it’s time to have your just deserts!

192 – Piranhas!

*’Jaws’ theme plays*
Wait, we’re not doing THAT show, yet!
What’s the next best thing? Piranha’s! Jump right in, the water’s fine. The boys from ’40 Going On 14′ are preparing to do battle with hordes of tiny, man eating fish!

Joe Dante started it all and Alexandre Aja picked up the torch and ran with it. How dangerous can tiny little fish be? You’ll have to listen in to find out!

It’s the ‘Piranha’ show!

189 – MST3K

Did you ever want to talk during a movie, but got told to be quiet? On this week’s episode, we’re letting a few select individuals do it for an entire movie!

185 – The Side Dish

Your plate is full of delicious foods, but what’s that next to your main dish? SIDES! That’s right, we’re doing an entire show about the unsung hero of the dinner plate.

From the days of hiding veggies under layers of cheese, to heading off to college to find ourselves and the joys of fried vegetables. What more could you want for dinner?

Push those entrees aside and let’s indulge in some side dishes!

184 – Beauty & The Beast – The Movies

No mysteries to solve. No NASCAR. Know what I’m talking about? It’s time to dance with ‘Beauty and the Beast’ again. This week, the films take center stage, as we discuss the original Disney ‘classic’ and the newly released, Disney ‘live action’ version!

How will two stories, that are basically the same, compare? You may have to warm up your vocal pipes, to find out.

“So, you should come sing along,
as we talk all night long.
and how fast will you learn,
No one can podcast like Gaston!
He’s especially good at…. pontificating!
Let’s talk about, Gaston!”

183 – Beauty & The Beast TV

It’s a scary world we live in. It’s even scarier when you’re nearly killed due to mistaken identity! Luckily, there are other monsters out lurking, that will rescue you and quietly stalk you to ensure that you’re okay at night.

What am I talking about?

Why ‘Beauty and the Beast’, of course! This week, it’s all about Catherine and Vincent. A love story for the ages…. with occasional action sequences.

Now, what was that about NASCAR?

182 – The Transportation Show

BEEP! BEEP! What’s that sound?

It’s the sound of another episode of ’40 Going On 14′! This week, we’re hoping into the drivers seat and taking a ride through all the modes of transportation in our lives. What was our first car? How did we get to and from school?

How many of us names our vehicles? All the answers lie within! Put on your seat belt and fill up the tank with gas. It’s a road trip you’ll never forget!

173 – Remake Recap 2017

What’s the one thing we can’t ever seem to get enough of? Remakes! This week’s show is all about the art of the redo. What films, television shows and video games would we like to see brought out in the future? What about the things that are already on the way for 2017?
We’ll mine the depths of our childhood and see what comes bubbling to the surface. It’s going to be a heck of a ride, as the way-back machine is set for ‘NOW!’ as the guys of ’40 Going On 14′ talk all things remakes!
Speaking of which, how many will Dwayne Johnson be starring in? Better tune in to find out!

172 – The Winter of our Discontent

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the guys are warm and delightful. Since there’s no place to go, let it snow. Let it snow. Let it snow?

That’s the topic of this weeks ’40 Going On 14′: The winter of our discontent. We’ve got a fire blazing in the fireplace, hot chocolate in our mugs and one of us has socks on his hands.

If you’re wondering what the guys do during one quarter of the year, then this is the episode for you. Your car is covered under 5 feet of snow anyway, so why not pop in your earbuds and enjoy!

169 – Fullest Houses

What do you get when you cross ‘Three Men and a Baby’ with ‘Eight Is Enough’? You might have something like ‘Full House’! This week, we’re taking a trip back to the 90’s, to witness the beginning of the TGIF phenomenon. The gang’s all here, as we check out some pure, family friendly television.

Fast forward to 2016, as everyone is back and ready to “Cut it out” with ‘Fuller House’! Can a squeaky clean show from another time, still retain it’s wholesomeness in the modern age? You’ll have to listen in to find out!

Are you ready for this much Bob Saget? In the immortal words of Michelle Tanner, “You got it, dude.”

167 – Pets!

We all wanted to have a pet, as a kid. Whether it was a monkey, a large mouth bass or whatever that thing was on ‘Star Trek’. It was every boy or girls wish to have an animal best friend, even the guys from ’40 Going On 14′.

This week we’re taking a trip down memory lane, as we discuss all the pets we’ve had over the past several decades, including the ones we never got and the ones that hang out with us these days. Dog, cats, exploding fish and even a couple of iguanas. We’ve had a little bit of everything.

Curl up with your favorite furry or non-furry buddy and have a listen. This is the pet show! And no, Patrick, you can’t have a monkey.

166 – Schwarzenegger Part Two: The Now

As promised, we’re back! This week, we’re bringing you part 2 of the Arnold show!

We’re going to cover the second half of The Governator’s film catalog and what he’s been up to, since 2000. There’s more Terminator’s to battle, Johnny Knoxville’s to partner up with and giant action ensembles to create explosions with!

Just like the man himself, this is an over sized 2 part tribute to a legend in the film industry. If you didn’t love Arnold before, you certainly will, when we’re done! Has anybody seen my rocket launcher?

165 – Schwarzenegger – Part 1: The Then

The 70’s, 80’s and 90’s were an interesting time in entertainment. Amongst all of the giant hair, off putting clothing and low-def TV…. a star was on the rise. A muscle bound Austrian named, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This show has been years in the making and not unlike the man himself, it’s larger than life. We’re dedicating 2 full episodes to celebrate the entire catalog of the 7 time Mr. Olympia. In this first episode, we’re digging into the past and covering Arnold’s early career. From ‘Hercules in New York’ to ‘End of Days’, we’re leaving no stone unturned.

Be sure to join us next week, for part 2. There’s so many more explosions to witness and bullets to dodge, as ’40 Going On 14′ will be back and wondering: “Have you seen this boy?”

160 – The Things!

October is upon is and that means it’s time for ’40 Going On 14′ to celebrate: Oct-O-Boo! First up, from 1982, John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ vs the 2011 prequel, ‘The Thing’. When you’re stuck at an isolated, frozen research center, what’s the last thing you want to have to deal with? How about a shape shifting alien, with a penchant for murder?

We’re kicking things off right, with a special effects heavy double feature that has more blood, guts, gore and icky stuff than you can shake a flame thrower at. Grab your 10 gallon sombrero and let’s play guess who’s a xenomorph!
