Short version: In 2021 we'll be alternating between season 2 and 12 every week!

Long version: Hello everyone! As you may have seen, we polled our Patreon users to see if they'd prefer that we start our 2021 podcasts by revisiting season 2 of The Simpsons OR continuing on to season 12. The results to date of over 750 subscribers split with 70% for season 2, and 30% for season 12.

While season 2 is the two-to-one favorite, we were reading in the comments some great suggestions and realized there was a happier compromise for this idea. And so, as we explain more thoroughly in the attached podcast, starting next January we'll be doing an episode of season 2 one week, and then a season 12 episode the next. So Bart Gets An "F" will be followed by Treehouse of Horror XI, which will be followed by Simpson and Delilah, and so on!

We also wanted to let you all know we're amending our $15,000 a month Patreon goal. Previously that had been a third yearly miniseries, but we decided a better change would be, in 2021, making Talking Futurama a monthly exclusive podcast for our $5+ Patreon subscribers in addition to all the other current bonus content.

Be sure to listen to the podcast for some more context on our reasoning for these changes. Thanks as always for your fantastic support—we couldn't do it without you!!!

We talk about beauty and balloons this week when we welcome back Louis Peitzman (be sure to check out his awesome newsletter!) onto the podcast! Moe is feeling unattractive after winning a contest, so he completely changes his face. And thus leads to a plan of revenge and stardom occasionally interrupted by a balloon chase. Listen now before Moe gets a third, different face!

This week Conor Lastowka from Rifftrax and the 372 Pages We'll Never Get Back podcast returns for a biblical experience of a podcast!

Listen now or Jebus will punish you!

We've reached a landmark episode for Simpsons, which means it's time for our pals from Chapo Trap House, Matt Christman and Virgil Texas, to discuss Maude Flanders! How did the character get written off the show? Why was it done in such extreme fashion? And what was the fallout for decades to come from this major episode? We explore all of that in this week's momentous episode, so listen now!!
