This week we're beginning our new Patreon-exclusive podcast miniseries, Talking Mission Hill! And we're sharing the first episode with all of you, featuring our Mission Hill expert/pal Matthew Jay (The Deep End, Cartoons 101) as a guest! We celebrate how Simpsons' executive producers Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein created the ultimate late '90s slacker cartoon, how the first episode sets everything up, and how The WB bungled the entire thing from the debut broadcast. Learn all about it in this episode, then sign up for $5 on Patreon.com/TalkingSimpsons to hear us discuss every other episode of the series for the next few months!
We just did a brand new interview with Jon Vitti that would normally just be for $5+ subscribers on Patreon.com/TalkingSimpsons! But we enjoyed so much our chat with the writer of Lisa's Substitute, Bart The Genius, Cape Feare, and much more that we wanted to share it with all of you! So listen to our chat with Simpsons legend Jon Vitti as we cover his career there and at SNL, King of The Hill, The Critic and more! And if you enjoyed this, subscribe at the Patreon to hear over 20 hours worth of our previous interviews with Simpsons luminaries!
We all take an unplanned trip to France and our guide is returning guest/USG Editor-In-Chief Kat Bailey! We discuss the power of cherry bombs, the first appearance of Agnes, and how we forgot this is a king of aimless episode of the series. Plus, we learn a thing or two about wine, antifreeze, and classic French literature in this week's international episode!!
Gamespot Reviews Editor Kallie Plagge is back again as we revisit perhaps season one's most feminist episode. Homer goes to a stag party at work and gets photographed dancing with Princess Cashmere, upending all sexual mores in Springfield! As Marge deals with humiliation and Homer sleeps over at Barney's apartment, Bart ultimately learns to respect at least a million girls in the closing number. Learn all about that AND why Sam McMurray still holds a grudge with the series in this week's exciting podcast!!
Time once more for our monthly news and community podcast, and WOW, what a normal and uneventful month! But seriously, we cover the real-world news and Simpsons updates, thoughts on some of the most recent Simpsons episodes, a preview of what podcasts are coming in April, and chat about some of our favorite Patreon comments for March 2020! So listen now!
Our reexamination of the first season gets to the first true Marge episode, and we welcome back Merritt K from Fanbyte to help us discuss Marge's marital strife! After a terrible birthday, Marge takes out her spite at Homer's terrible gift while making a new friend at the bowling alley. But what happens when he wants to be more than friends? The Simpsons' marriage is tested for the first time in this week's episode, so grab your size 13 bowling shoes and treat your partners well on this week's podcast!
