This week we join the family on their controversial trip to Brazil, and our buddies Toby Jones (Regular Show, OK K.O.) and Maddie Queripel (Regular Show, Infinity Train) are along for the ride! After a bunch of jokes about early '00s phone companies, the Simpsons head to Rio, and we take time to go into all the moments that caused controversy with representatives of Brazil's government back in 2002. So grab a speedo and let's get in the culturally inaccurate conga line for this week's podcast!
Hey folks, we've got a new exclusive miniseries for all of our $5 and up subscribers at Patreon.com/TalkingSimpsons!

And if you're curious as to what this Patreon-exclusive miniseries is like, we're giving you a free sample of a Blabbin 'Bout B:TAS podcast, all about the classic episode, "The Clock King." Interested in hearing more? Sign up today at Patreon.com/TalkingSimpsons to the rest of our "The Clock King" discussion, a new episode every Friday, and the 100+ other exclusive podcast episodes we've produced so far!
It's your football lock of the week as we welcome back our pal Alex Navarro from Nextlander to discuss the intersection of gambling and fatherhood. We not only talk a ton of behind-the-scenes details of the real-life football bets that inspired this ep, we also gab about halftime shows, shows premiering after the Super Bowl, beer bottles playing sports, and tons more. So grab some baloney and bread for this Super Sunday Brunch Spectacular of a podcast!
For this week's episode, we needed an expert on goofing on public domain media, so we invited back our pal Conor Lastowka from Rifftrax and the 372 Pages We'll Never Get Back podcast! It's time for another non-Treehouse trilogy, which means lots of sex, violence, and songs from the '70s as Homer tells the kids stories about Odysseus, Joan of Arc, and Hamlet. Grab your Ghostbuster soundtrack and listen along!
Once more we're joined by the amazing Matt McMuscles (check out his YouTube channel and his Patreon!), this time for a tale of fraud and '90s birthdays. After Bart has a disappointing birthday party, he decides to fool the town in a lengthy parody to a Billy Wilder classic. We dig deep into all the timely references, the gameplay of Larry The Looter, the charm of local animatronics, the dangers of Mr. Microphone, if you can freeze a child in a well, and so much more in this week's Lincoln Squirrel of a podcast!
We've reached the end of the month, which means it's once again time for another installment of our community podcast. Join us as we discuss the newest episodes of season 34, a fully playable version of the Waterworld parody seen in The Springfield Files, Vice's new documentary on The Simpsons, and Vulture's new ranking of every Treehouse of Horror segment to date. And, as always, we read and respond to your questions and comments from the most recent round of episodes. We swear on Ray Jay Johnson's grave that you'll enjoy this episode!
