We head out to the ball game with our returning guest, Podcast: The Ride's Mike Carlson! Mike helps us understand the magic of baseball, the history of small-town mascots, and more in this week's classic episode of Homer becoming a Minor League star. All that plus we try to deconstruct the weird editing of this episode's framing device, all in one nutty coo-coo super king of a podcast!
We interrupt your regularly scheduled Talking Simpsons programming with an important announcement: TalKing of the Hill Season Two Season 2 Part 1 has arrived! That's right, we're covering the first half of King of the Hill's second season on a weekly basis, and you can only hear it if you sign up at the $5 level at Patreon.com/TalkingSimpsons.

We're about to do a new TalKing of the Hill podcast miniseries on Patreon, making this the perfect time to interview KotH's Supervising Director Wes Archer! Not only was Wes the first animator ever hired to work on Simpsons during the Ullman days, but Archer is also the creator of the Twister Mouth, director of some of the best episodes in the first seven Simpsons seasons, defined the look of King of the Hill, and still works on shows like Rick & Morty and Disenchantment to this day. Wes Archer tells us all about it, and if you enjoy this, please consider subscribing to Patreon.com/TalkingSimpsons for our discussion of King of the Hill Season 2 Part 1 (plus all our previous interviews)!
This week's environmental episode is joined by the returning Kat Bailey, our friend and co-host of the newly relaunched Axe of the Blood God podcast! We cover the ultimate episode about the show punishing Lisa for believing in something, plus we discuss Homer doing a bunch of weird stuff and the career of Joshua Jackson. Listen now or we'll sit in a tree for weeks in protest!
An extra-electoral podcast this week as the show gets political with the hosts of the awesome podcast Bad Faith, Briahna Joy Gray and Virgil Texas! We get their insight into the politics of Mr. Burns' self-financed run for governor in this iconic episode, we discuss how it compares to modern politics, and dig into tons more history and tangents in this mutated podcast, so listen now!
We welcome back our pal Drew Mackie from the Gayest Episode Ever Podcast for an early season 12 episode all about Hollywood dads! After a book fair, Krusty learns he has a daughter he never met before (played by Drew Barrymore), leading the clown on a strange journey of fatherhood with Homer as his guide. All that plus the debuts of Johnny Tightlips and Frankie The Squealer, so listen or go suck on a lemon!
The shortest month of 2021 is nearing its end, and we've got lots of Simpsons news to look back on! Not just the usual stuff too, as we chat with our pall Drew Mackie about his viral Simpsons video. Plus, we preview some upcoming podcasts from us, reflect on our own February fun, and respond to some of our favorite Patreon comments. So cancel your trip to the Bahamas and listen now!
