As The Simpsons head to EPCOT for a special episode, we welcomed back Scott Gairdner, EPCOT lover/writer/actor/cohost of Podcast: The Ride! Not only do we dig into all of the theme park trivia that's stuffed into this ep, we also discuss the complex love affair with Edna and Skinner, special guest stars who might not read scripts correctly, and tons more. So grab some pie and listen while waiting to board Spaceship Earth!
The Simpsons celebrate Halloween for the third time, and we get scarily accurate in our history of this episode! We've got the original script to note the many changed lines in this episode, plus all the references will finally be demystified. Not to mention our thoughts on scary dolls, the many King Kong films (especially the 1933 original), zombies, and tons more. So get ready for the terror of oodles of research in a podcast that may contain potassium benzoate (that's bad)!
The Berkeley Studio Era of Talking Simpsons ends just as it began: With a Sideshow Bob episode! Yes, as record one more time in our old recording space, we cover the season 14 ep that not only brought back Robert Underdunk Terwilliger, as well as an infamous culprit. How does Al Jean's new era deal with the return of the recurring villain, and why does it involve Mardi Gras & musical parodies? Listen along and learn as we've grown accustomed to your face on this week's podcast!
We've reached the beginning of the month, which means it's once again time for another installment of our community podcast! Join us as we ring in the Pacific Northwest era of Talking Simpsons by catching you up on Simpsons news, as well as our very busy last few months. And, as always, we read and respond to your questions and comments from the most recent round of episodes. Here's a tip from us you won't regret: a podcast host's just a friend you haven't met!
