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!

DROKK!

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!

LA LA LA

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!

186 – Fighting Games

MASH THE BUTTONS! That may be the only way that some of us are ever able to pull off that combo! What am I talking about? Fighting games!

‘Karate Champ’, may have set the tone, but ‘Street Fighter 2’ TKO’d the competition and they never quite recovered. What better way to spend the evening with some friends, but to kick some a@# and take some names.

HADOUKEN!

181 – The Rap Show

DJ, drop that beat. It’s finally time for the rap show!

What more credible people to talk about a true American art form, like the boys from ’40 Going On 14′!

Actually, you might be surprised.

This week, we’re digging deep into our past, present and future, as we take on the history of hip hop and all the artists that influenced us and generations of music lovers.

We’re going to leave no major stone unturned, as we throw the needle on the record and spit some mad flow, on the mics. Are you ready for it? Well here it is!Dang, that DJ made my day.

180 – Kindergarten Cops!

The witness protection program is a safe place to hide away, from all of those nasty bad guys that are out to get you, right? Not always! And what do you do when you’re not longer safe in hiding? You call Arnold or Dolph to come and save you!

This week we’re reviewing the case files of the ‘Kindergarten Cops’. Two action comedies that combine your love of little kids and action movie stars. Two great tastes, that taste great together!

Put your gun in your holster for this one, as there are children present. However, the real question is…. is it, in fact, a tumor?

179 – Computers Then and Now

What’s that awful noise? It’s the modem connecting to the internet? Is it 1997? As a matter of fact, for this episode, it will be! Computers! This week, on ’40 Going On 14′, it’s all about home computers.

From the early days of dial up and green screens to the modern laptop, we’re divulging all of our computing histories in a very special episode. What model did we all cut our teeth on? When did we make the jump to Windows 95? It’s all in here!

If you ever wondered what operating system we hated, then this is the episode for you. Although, I’m guessing most of you will already know the answer to this one. So, boot up the hard drive and close ALL of your tabs, it’s time for the computer show!

178 – Animal Neighbors!

So, you move into your new home. Beautiful wife, wonderful new baby and everything seems perfect. Then, the new neighbors move in. Before you know it, everything has gone to hell in a hand basket.

Compare that to a rowdy frat house that’s on double secret probation and you have this weeks episode of ’40 Going On 14′!

‘Animal House’ vs ‘Neighbors’, two great tastes that taste great together.

The only thing that could make it better, would be a little nudity. I guess we’ll just have to keep waiting for some. Grab the beer bong and your toga, it’s time to party!
