It's time for a very special live podcast for the Halloween season, as Bill Oakley (former Simpsons showrunner, Steamed Hams Society boss, and Sight Gags figurehead) joined us in Portland, OR! Recorded on October 14, 2023, Bill chatted with us about two of his fave Treehouse of Horror segments, Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace and Attack of the 50ft Eyesores, and shared many secrets from making the episode. This was a fun sequel to our 2018 live show, so listen now to get in the Halloween spirit!

It's Lisa's birthday once more and for this special occasion we welcomed first-time guest, comedian Django Gold, who just released the new stand-up special Bag of Tricks! It's a truly wild ep this week as Homer is a thoughtless gift giver which leads him to pay a sleazy man to follow her, with it all coming to a head in a deadly hall of mirrors chase. All that, plus laser pointer history, the influence of Snow Dogs, and tons more on this week's podcast!

As we explore an episode all about animation history, we're joined once again by the award-winning artist Nina Matsumoto! Yes, it's time for the greatest animated film of the 1990s, Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie, and Bart is very excited to see it. But as we explore parenting and discipline, we also chat about how this reflects the animation industry at the time. All that plus MANY tangents about Star Trek, pet ownership, new apartments, and tons more, so if you like stories, listen now!
