Special surprise as we were guests this week on the lefty political media criticism podcast Michael And Us to discuss The Simpsons Movie in their particular podcast style. (Consider this a preview of the eight-hour movie podcast we'll do in a few years from now.) So give this a listen for some extra fun chat about the film's politics and how Simpsons changed society and how society changed it. Listen now to this fun crossover!
The family embarrasses Homer in this backward episode, and we're exploring it all with special guest Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher of Found Footage Festival and VCR Party Live! We talk with them about their particular brand of nostalgia, then go deep into Simpsons' history with Al Jean & Mike Reiss' first episode. We talk picnics, pawnshops, shock treatment, and so much more, so listen before we bring out the foam bats!
Ahoy-hoy and welcome to this month's episode of our community podcast! As we outlined in our 2020 update, the final Talking Simpsons slot of every month will now be occupied by an episode of Talk to the Audience, and we've got a great one for you to kick off our new schedule. Listen in as we discuss Hank Azaria's statements on no longer voicing Apu, Kevin Smith's Simpsons guest spot, Seth MacFarlane's lucrative new contract, and so much more! And, as always, we read and respond to your questions and comments from the recent batch of episodes. Thanks for listening, and here's to a great 2020!
