We begin the iconic fourth season in earnest with an amazing returning guest, Mike Mitchell from the fantastic podcast Doughboys, not to mention big films and TV shows like the upcoming Twisted Metal! We all reflect on our childhood memories of seeing this one live as Bart and Lisa head to a really crappy camp, plus we have some incredible new details as we have an original table-read draft of Kamp Krusty with some surprising changes. All that, plus many summer memories as we begin what many consider Simpsons' best season on the podcast!
For a tale of rock stars and camping, we're joined by Chris Wade from the awesome podcasts Chapo Trap House, And Introducing..., and Hell on Earth! Following a discussion of Taxicab Confessions, we see what aging rock stars were like 21 years ago, with Homer befriending a new group of extremely famous people. We reflect on the acting abilities of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Lenny Kravitz, and more, so grab some cheaper oatmeal and listen now!
Once more we're breaking format with Drew Mackie and Glen Lakin from the great podcast Gayest Episode Ever Podcast, this time to talk about what Conan O'Brien worked on right before Simpsons! Yes, the "brilliant but canceled" pilot for Lookwell is the cult classic brainchild of Conan and Robert Smigel, where the late Adam West played an aging actor annoying the police. Learn how this pilot came to be and its influence on The Simpsons' fourth season in this beguiling podcast!
It's time for our monthly community podcast, which is great because we've got a ton to catch up on! We discuss the last handful of season 34 stories, including the 750th episode, plus a lot of talk of the WGA strike, Star Wars crossovers, and new Futurama. Not to mention we both have some exciting life updates too. Plus we reply to the many Patreon comments worthy of the First Annual Montgomery Burns Award For Outstanding Achievement In The Field Of Excellence!
