This week's episode is all about online conspiracy theories, and our guest is an expert: Travis View of the investigative podcast QAnon Anonymous! As Homer becomes the unknown arbiter of online rumors, this episode is all about the dangers of bull plop on a then relatively young internet of 2000. Learn how much things have changed and what stayed the same, plus a ton of stuff about the cult classic The Prisoner! So don't be a caterpillar in our buttermilk, listen now!

We all grab our putters for this week's episode as we welcome comedian and writer Mike Hanford from the band/podcast The Sloppy Boys! This is the first major Ned Flanders episode, as Homer becomes much angrier than usual while forcing Bart to play mini-golf. With Lisa's help, Bart finds inner peace and ultimately learns a lesson while Homer and Ned wear dresses. All this, plus the sound of one hand clapping! It's a weird but important episode, so listen along to learn a ton of historical firsts for this week's Mr. Putter-approved podcast!

This week's episode is one of the most controversial Simpsons ever, and we lean upon the insights of returning fave Nick Wiger from the great podcasts Doughboys and How Did This Get Played?! Homer becomes Burns' prank monkey for high pay and low dignity, leading to perhaps the lowest moment in Simpsons history. How does it fare today? How does it reflect the comedy of 2000? And what about The Noid? We discuss it all in this tapioca-covered podcast!
