223 – Heathers v Mean Girls

High school is never easy. High school is even harder when your friends with the ‘Heathers’ or the ‘Mean Girls’. That’s right, this week we’re putting on our retainers and getting ready for the prom.

Two landmark films for awkward high schoolers everywhere. Featuring the talents of Christan Slater, Winona Ryder, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams just to name a few. We’re going to see how they hold up after being gone from the hallowed halls of high school for so long.

Get your ‘Burn Book’s ready, because things are about to get juvenile.

221 – Health & Wellness?

If you’ve ever sat at home on the weekend and wondered if any of us have broken a bone or maybe you questioned who’d had the most surgeries? Perhaps you’ve just been lamenting the fact that the HIPAA laws prohibit you from finding out on your own? Then have we got a show for you!

The guys are opening up their medical records to give you a peak at things that previously only their doctors knew for sure! This is a no holds barred health history hysteria!

If you’ve got your pills, take them now, because your heart may not be able to stand it! It’s the health & wellness show!

214 – Monster Squad vs Stranger Things

Why is it that kids are always the ones that have to save the world? It seems to be a trend in TV and film, for decades. This week, we’re watching as it all happens again!

We’re hoping on our Huffy’s and taking a ride through ‘The Monster Squad’ (1987) and ‘Stranger Things: Season 2’. (Secretly, we just wanted a reason to watch ‘Stranger Things’.)

This episode goes from 8 to 11 to Uncle Rico, as it’s time to flip the Upside Down, right side up!

213 – Invasion Of The Body Snatchers

Have you ever thought someone wasn’t acting quite like themselves? Perhaps you thought they were from another planet? Maybe they were!

This week, on our last gasp for OctoBoo, we’re joined by Will from The Creepercast. We’re chatting it up about the 1978 ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ and 2007’s ‘The Invasion’.

It’s a fantastic way to end the Halloween season and yes…. we talk about that friggin’ dog! Yikes!

212 – Vampire Comedy

What do you get when you cross a vampire movie, with a comedy? A funny movie, that sucks? We shall see.

This week we’re watching ‘Once Bitten’ and ‘What We Do In Shadows’, two different takes on the horror comedy. Will they leave a mark or will they just bite?

The undead are calling, as it’s time to sink your teeth into the new episode of ’40 Going On 14′!

211 – Friday The 13th

It’s time to go camping! Yup, despite being the middle of October, we’re going out to pitch a tent!

With our hockey masks in tow, we’re going to spend some time with our favorite unstoppable killing machine buddy, Jason Voorhees. Starting in 1980 and then hoping into the time machine to fast forward to 2009. All the campers will die.

How will these two films match up? You’ll have to take a trip to Crystal Lake to find out!

210 – IT

What’s that, Georgie? You’re looking for your little toy boat? Well, We’ve got it right here. You can find it in this episode of ’40 Going On 14′!

That’s right, this is ‘It’ folks! The episode you’ve been waiting for. We’re going to take a trip down into the sewers with Pennywise the Dancing Clown, as we discuss his different incarnations.

Put on your raincoat, because you’re going to float soon, too.

209 – Frankensteins

We all know the story. A crack of lightning, a madman and a creature brought back to life. However, you may not know these takes on this classic tale. What am I referring to? Why, Frankenstein’s monster, of course!

For this first episode of OctoBoo, we’re taking on ‘Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein’ and ‘Victor Frankenstein’. Two variations on the monster’s origin story.

Gather your spare parts and a little electricity and let’s bring back the dead!

208 – Freaky Fridays

Have you ever wanted to switch bodies with someone? Even if it was just for a day? If I learned anything at all this week, it’s that a set of fortune cookies or a simple wish, can make this happen!

That’s right, kids, we’re doing a ‘Freaky Friday’ show! The lads from ’40 Going On 14′ are not swapping their bodies, but they are swapping their thoughts on the original film and the latter remake.

As SubTember comes to a close, we have one final SECRET co-host joining us and I promise, you won’t be disappointed! Cue the ‘Benny Hill’ theme!

207 – Death Races

How many points is it to hit one of the hosts of ’40 Going On 14′? You may be asking what I mean, but if you listen to this weeks episode…. you’ll find out!

We’re all at the starting line and ready to go. It’s the third week in SubTember, as Grant from Achor.FM, joins us to talk about ‘Death Race’! We’re putting the pedal to the metal, as we cruise through the original and the “soft” reboot. Will they cross the finish line?

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!

206 – Wonder Woman

Quick! Spin around, as your clothes fly off! It’s time to go and save the world, again.

You guessed it, we’re doing the ‘Wonder Woman’ show! Diana Prince is in the house and ready to lasso the truth out of the boys. What did they think about the original series and what are their thoughts on the recent film?

Hop into the invisible jet and strap in for part two of SubTember, as we welcome Jeffery Nau of ‘The History of Bad Ideas’ podcast! Did anyone remember to pack my Wonder Woman Underoos?

205 – Radio

Radio has been a part of our lives, for decades. Ever since we were growing up, all of us listened to it and had our favorite stations. For the first week in SubTember, we’re turning the dial on the wayback machine and talking about the radio!

Joining us for this first week, is our old friend, Mark. We’ll be discussing all things FM and AM, since we were angst filled youths, up until today, as angst filled adults.

Were does that leave us, with today’s thousands of choices for music and talk? You’ll have to tune in, to find out!

204 – The Magnificent Seven

How many hired guns does it take to get a town back from a brooding bad guy? Let me count the ways: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6…. ‘The Magnificent Seven’!

Saddle up, kids! We’re riding our way through a gun toting shoot em’ up, as we discuss the original 1960 classic and the 2016 remake.

How were they? I only have one answer. You had me at Charles Bronson.

203 – Trainspotting

Can we make a movie about drug abuse and death funny? Well, somehow with this episode, we answer that question!

Join Spud, Sick Boy, Begbie and Renton, as they train spot their way through 20 years of a difficult life.

By the end of this show, maybe you’ll be able to answer the question: “Which character are you?” OY!

194 – The Hannibal Show

What do you pair human liver with? That’s one of the many topics will discuss this week, as we sink our teeth into ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and the more recent ‘Hannibal’ television series.

From Thomas Harris’ mind was born one of the most iconic characters of our time. Hannibal Lector leaps from the pages of his various books and took on a life of his own. As the years go on, he seems to be only growing in popularity.

The gang at ’40 Going On 14′ have set the table for dinner and it’s time to say grace. Let’s eat!

193 – Morgan Freeman

Who has the most recognizable voice in Hollywood? Why none other than the honorable
Morgan Freeman. Not only is he a prolific actor, who never phones in a performance, he’s also a genuine class act. That’s not something that can be said for most actors in tinsel town.

This week, we’re paying homage to the man, the myth, the legend.

If you’ve ever seen or heard anything in the media, then you’re probably familiar with Mr. Freeman’s work. On this very special episode, we’re celebrating his entire catalog.

191 – Judge Dredd

Broadcasting LIVE from Mega City One! It’s ’40 Going On 14′! If you’ve ever wondered what a lot of money looks like, when it’s thrown into a misunderstood comic book property, then this is the episode you’ve been waiting for.

We’ve got The Angel Family, Judge Rico, The Cursed Earth, Ma Ma and a whole lot more! Judge Dredd will be on hand too, just to keep the peace.

Put on your helmet and set your Lawgiver to laugh. It’s the ‘Judge Dredd’ 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!

That’s right, it’s the ‘MST3K’ show! We’re spending and evening with Mike, Joel, Tom Servo, Crow, Jonah and the rest of the gang, as we talk about talking during a terrible movie. The ONLY time it’s appropriate.

Grab your popcorn and your Felicia Day cardboard standup, it’s time to go to the movies!


187 – The Cover Song Show #1

When a great song is written, what happens after it’s been heard a 100 times? Someone covers it! This week, we’re selecting 3 original tracks, that have since been covered by another artist and putting them through the ’40 Going On 14′ filter.

If you dig the annual Billboard show, then you’re going to be in for a treat. If all goes well, this may be the cover tune to that original classic!

Turn it on and turn it up!
