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!

195 – Pete’s Dragons

When we were kids, we all wanted a pet dragon. If not a pet dragon, then some kind of magical friend that would stay by our side and keep us safe. Disney fulfilled that wish, with the original ‘Pete’s Dragon’. In 2016, they remade it, but for a more modern generation of kids.

On our newest episode, we’re going to hop on the back of the world’s most famous big, green dragon. We’re also going to learn about Robert Redford and his love of horses.

What more can you ask for?

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.

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!

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.

LA LA LA

188 – Doctor Stranges

Have you recently been trying to bargin with Dormammu? Has your Eye of Agamotto been in need of Visine? Then perhaps you need more Doctor Strange in your life?

This week, we cast a spell and grant your wish! We’re broadcasting live from The Sanctum Sanctorum, full of porn mustaches, cloaks of levitation and Mordor. If you’ve ever wondered how the 1978 and 2016 films, about the Sorcerer Supreme, compare…. then this is the show you’ve been waiting for!

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!

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!

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!

177 – Wayne’s World vs Pick of Destiny

2 men on a journey to find fame and fortune. Both of them having to overcome overwhelming odds, to reach their goal. All the while, throwing their rock fist in the air, in salute to the rock gods. What are we talking about this week? We’re not only celebrating the 25th anniversary of ‘Wayne’s World’, but indulging ourselves with ‘Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny’! Two films that loosely tie together, to create a musical epic. Prepare to bang your head, as we learn the true history of Milwaukee and what the devil is really like in person!
