This week we're joined for the first time by journalist/podcaster Brendan James, cohost of the brilliant Blowback series, a perfect fit for an episode about American propaganda! Bart and his pals become a boy band to meet N*SYNC, but all that is secondary to a plot that involves the shocking moment of a skyscraper in Manhattan exploding. All that and so much more, so listen to this podcast and YVAN EHT NIOJ!

We welcome back our friend/video game historian Chris Kohler, this time as we talk about the very first Simpsons game! Way back in early 1991, as season 2 aired, Konami released The Simpsons Arcade Game, featuring Smithers kidnapping Maggie and the family punching dozens of people to get her back. How does it hold up and what bits from the show were used? We go super in-depth into one of the few Simpsons games that's actually fun!
