It's been 25 years since Simpsons legends Al Jean & Mike Reiss created Teen Angel, and we're breaking format to celebrate that with Drew Mackie and Glen Lakin from the great Gayest Episode Ever Podcast! We explore this TGIF original that's lost to time, digging deep into its creation, the entire magical sitcom genre, and any lingering gay subtext in the series' first ep. So grab an old burger and follow us back to 1997 in this heavenly podcast!

Learn all about that plus the Cleveland Browns, how much $100 million is worth now, stock market tips, and tons more. Listen now to a podcast that *is* all smiles and sunshine!

To close out our week of bonus interviews, this time around, we're chatting with the great Lew Morton! If you're a Talking Futurama listener, you likely know his name from our podcasts about his very funny episodes, like "Amazon Women in the Mood" and "Mother's Day." But Lew is also attached to legendary TV comedies like NewsRadio, Veep, Silicon Valley, and most recently, Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe—as well as the recent series reboot of MTV's brain dead duo. Listen in to learn about his long career in the world of comedy writing, and the secret formula to what makes Beavis and Butt-Head work!

Here's big treat for listeners this week as we briefly shift from our standard style to post two brand new interviews! Our first is with Susie Dietter, a legend of The Simpsons, Futurama, and modern animation in general. Susie joined The Simpsons in season 2, directed classics like Radioactive Man and Grade School Confidential, plus Futurama eps like Godfellas, AND she was the first woman to ever direct an episode of The Simpsons. Learn all about that milestone moment and so much more in this honest, illuminating discussion with this talented artist!

We've reached the beginning of the month, which means it's once again time for another episode of our community podcast.

Also, we respond to your questions and comments from the most recent round of episodes. So sit back and get ready to close out the summer with a podcast that's better than free pickled eggs!
