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

202 – The Snack Food Show

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!

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.

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

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!”
