This week's romantic pod is joined by the great Cody Ziglar (writer for the upcoming Futurama season, She-Hulk, and Spider-Man comics)! After we hear all about working with Matt Groening, we learn about the interior life of Bart's teacher, all while also getting a masterclass in swearing, hockey Allstars, the many uses of zinc, and more. So grab your swear jar and listen along!

This week's ep is all about America's favorite jam band, so we welcome back comedian/writer/Phish fan Mike Hanford from the band/podcast The Sloppy Boys! As Homer gets prescription pot after a crow attack, he becomes a very era-appropriate stoner, which leads to him meeting Phish and puppeting Mr. Burns' corpse. So feel free to grab your own Texas THC (where legal) as we giggle nervously with this week's podcast!

We get Troy McClure as our video tour guide and learn about omelets, blackhead removal, baby car seats, stealing lightbulbs, and more.

Hope everyone had a happy Turkey Day, as we catch up with a whole month worth of news for both our podcast and The Simpsons. We reflect on the most recent episodes and other news, announce some upcoming podcasts (with teases of our upcoming live show!), and talk about the many cool games/films/TV we engaged with in our free time. And, as always, we respond to some of our favorite comments from the most recent podcasts. So grab your body paint and get ready to listen!
