We're joined again by journalist/podcaster Brendan James, cohost of the leftist history podcast Blowback, just in time for an episode inspired by America's wars. After the unexpected reveal that Ned love The Beatles, Bart joins the Pre-Teen Braves. That then leads to an extensive F Troop parody that's a gateway to the secrets of one lead actor on the show. Then it all comes to a head with a line that Fox tried to censor. All that, plus Ralph crashing through a window is born in this week's nondenominational podcast!

In an episode parodying the process of TV comedy writing, we welcome back WGA writer Nick Wiger (also from the podcasts Doughboys and Get Played)! Bart and Lisa get hired to secretly write Itchy & Scratchy in a plot referencing Tiny Toons/the blacklist, all while Abe does the iggy. Meanwhile, Homer goes back to high school for a short time before a Ned Flanders adventure. Listen now to learn all the big changes and deleted scenes in this classic show!

In an ep about asking questions about health and relationships, we're lucky to be joined by Alex Ptak and Jeremy Kaplowitz to answer these queries just like they do on their podcast, Quorators! After Homer takes up walking, Marge takes up an understandable amount of repressed rage leading to a horrible injury. Can the random appearances of Steve Buscemi and Jackson Browne save the day? Listen to this in your own backyard party (or Montana) and find out!

We had a huge May of Simpsons news to deal with in this extra-long community podcast! Not only the season 35 finale and a new Disney Plus short, but also a ton of headline-grabbing interviews that sparked a lot of discussion. Then we chat about all we watched and played this month, tease some upcoming podcasts, and (as always) respond to our favorite Patreon comments!
