As one of Simpsons season 2 characters returns, we also happily welcome back Podcast: The Ride's Jason Sheridan! As Homer's snoring is out of control, this brings Artie Ziff back into Marge's life for an extended parody of Indecent Proposal. And just as we're done talking about that, they parody several films from the '70s leading to a fiery finale, so check all that out on your way to Mount Carlmore on this week's podcast!
