Once again we're joined by Giant Bomb's own Alex Navarro, and he's here to lend a musician's insight into this story of childhood. This tale of Lisa's saxophone and Bart starting school is certainly touching, even if some jokes are better than others, but it's all a fun trip back to childhood in 1990 for all of us in this week's podcast. So stop watching WB and listen now!

So it's come to this... We've finally reached one of the most infamous episodes of The Simpsons, and we're giving it the deluxe podcast treatment! Allie Goertz and Julia Prescott of the great podcast Everything's Coming Up Simpsons join us live at the Gateway Theatre for our 2019 San Francisco Sketchfest show to discuss the Seymour Skinner story that set alt.tv.simpsons (and perhaps the world) on fire back in 1997. Will The Principal and the Pauper go down as a secretly great episode, or will we taunt and boo writer Ken Keeler until our throats are sore? Put down Armin's copy of Swank, because this is one episode of Talking Simpsons you can't miss!

[Note: The audio levels are a little off for the first eight minutes, but should sound perfectly fine after that.]

We're closing out season 8 with a story ripped from the headlines of the mid-'90s, and Kat Bailey from USGamer is joining us for the fun. After a bad trip to the Museum... of CRIME, Bart gets sent to military school and Lisa joins him. Too bad a butt load of sexism means Lisa has a horrible time there.

It's one of the most controversial and dark episodes of Simpsons ever, making it the perfect time for a return appearance from Chapo Trap House hosts Matt Christman and Virgil Texas. Frank Grimes, or Grimey as he liked to be called, lived quite a life, and we chat about the existential dread that comes up when we see Grimes reckon with the unique being known as Homer Simpson. We dig deep into the text here and explore one of the show's most morbid (and funny) episodes!

The perfect dog has arrived for this week's podcast, and our special guest Imran Khan from Game Informer talks all about the crossover between dog ownership and medicinal marijuana.

Our good buddy (and Editor-in-Chief of USGamer) Kat Bailey returns for another Lisa-centric episode, where we all diagnose her with bad babysitting!

This week, we're interrupting our regularly scheduled programming to bring you our live Halloween show, recorded on October 20th at Kelly's Olympian in Portland. And, during this performance, we were joined by none other than former Simpsons writer and showrunner Bill Oakley! Listen in as Bill sits down with us in front of a packed house to share behind-the-scenes reflections on the Treehouse of Horror segments Time and Punishment, Homer Cubed, and Citizen Kang! Thankfully, we also find time to talk about Simpsons shitposting, the diet of a Simpsons writer in the '90s, and the elusive PB Max. Thanks so much to Bill Oakley, Kelly's Olympian, and (of course) our wonderful Talking Simpsons Network patrons for making all of this happen!

Simpsons artist extraordinaire and our good friend Nina Matsumoto is back, and she's bringing her deep love of Frasier with her for this Sideshow Bob classic. We meet Cecil (who sounds a lot like Niles Crane) as he takes in the seemingly reformed Sideshow Bob in this anti-mystery story. All that plus smell hounds, Maris, and the surprising Japanese title of this episode. We're super excited for this one, especially Bob, but especially Henry!

It's time for one of the most insider-y episodes of The Simpsons ever, so we had to get some MAJOR guests to help us deconstruct all of it! To help us analyze the kung fu hippie from gansta city, we're joined by Rebecca Sugar, the creator of Steven Universe, Ian Jones-Quartey, creator of OK KO: Let's Be Heroes, and Toby Jonesic episode both does and doesn't reflect the realities of animation showrunning. Not to mention we talk about how this episode reflects own love of The Simpsons and what it's like to experience both sides of creating and enjoying animation! All that plus Rebecca, Ian, and Toby tell behind the scenes tales from Steven Universe and OK KO, an examination of what it means to be proactive, and whenever he's not on the podcast you'll hear us asking "Where's Poochie?"
