We welcome back our old pal Dan Ryckert (from the podcasts for Fire Escape and Panning The Stream) for a story of childish shenanigans! After some fun pro wrestling chat, we delve into the history of classical music, Truckasaurus, Dr. Hibbert, professional stuntmen, the most replayed moment in Simpsons history, and so much more. Listen now before we send you to the ward of podcast-related injuries!

This week's season 12 episode is all about films and imitating them, so we're joined by returning favorite Stephen Sajdak, cohost of the great We Hate Movies podcast! As Homer and Bart become experts in grifting, they end up being conned themselves after imitating one trick too many. Somehow that leads to a crazy courtroom trial and an even wackier last 10 seconds of the story that have stuck with us all the way until this podcast, so listen now and be sure to clue in Willie!

We return to Thanksgiving in 1990 to discuss this Simpsons classic with comedy performer/writer/musician/podcaster Tim Kalpakis from the band/podcast The Sloppy Boys! The whole family gets together for a traditional Thanksgiving, but Bart messes it up and evades an apology for the rest of the day as we learn some lessons about food and family. Plus, Tim gives us behind-the-scenes info on working on the show over a decade ago in this podcast that'll make you say "Hooray for everything!"
