For our inaugural episode, we dig into the pilot (aptly named "Space Pilot 3000") as well as every detail we could possibly find about Futurama's production! If you dig our clip-and-reference-heavy take on The Simpsons, you'll definitely find a lot to love with our same treatment of Futurama. So jump into the nearest probulator, crank up the volume, and get ready for Henry, Bob, and Chris to introduce you to THE WORLD OF TOMORROW!

(Recorded live at PianoFight in San Francisco on January 28, 2018.) Talking Simpsons breaks format once again for our second live show as we explore the greatest hits of Homer's side gigs. Though The Simpsons started out as a fairly realistic show about a guy with a working-class job, it wasn't long before Homer found himself in space, part of a Grammy-winning band, and behind the wheel of a monorail as a mono-thingie-guy. Join us for an exciting exploration of Homer's adventures in employment, and thrill as our great audience decides which job reigns supreme!

Special thanks to PianoFight for being such a great and accommodating venue!

We've been waiting for this one since the show began, and it doesn't disappoint. Not only is this one of the funniest episodes, but the first half of Springfield's greatest mystery is one of the densest, full of clues and red herrings.

So grab your lemonade or rootmarm cuz there's a doings a transpiring!

Just hook it to your veins!!!

We head to the land down under for some giant beers, spoon against knives, and mucus-filled marsupials. Learn a ton about Australia in what is probably the best international trip the Simpsons have as they face a booting thanks to draining. Wanna go smell-- I mean, wanna go listen?
