We welcome back our good pal Ian Jones-Quartey, creator of OK KO and Executive Producer on Steven Universe, for an episode all about animation in 2002. Ian tells us how his own life mirrors Bart's comic moving over into Flash animation of the day, plus we've got the history of the real website disaster that inspired the ep. All that plus a lot of Stan Lee chat, so face-front True Believers!

We're thrilled to be joined once more by the gifted artist Nina Matsumoto as we discuss an episode all about gifted children! While Bart is told he'd make a wonderful fascist/cop, Lisa is told that she should be a homemaker and stop using her stubby fingers for jazz. This sets both on a topsy-turvy path that threatens to destroy the school. All that, plus a deep dive into the career of George Meyer, so grab your copies of MAD, Cracked, and Crazy, and listen along!

It's our first live podcast in THREE YEARS, and we're joined by the amazing Matt Christman from Chapo Trap House (check out the new miniseries Hell on Earth)! Since 2016 in particular, we've all been subjected to countless "Simpsons predicted it" headlines, and we felt that after President Trump, the COVID pandemic, and so much more, it was time to get to the bottom of it. Listen along to learn the history of it, as well as a special video message from Bill Oakley (former Simpsons executive producer/current leader of SteamedHamsSociety.com) as we dig into the show's many predictions!

Recorded on the eve of our first live show since 2020, we're joined by Nina Matsumoto (check out her Sparks! Future Purrfect graphic novel) for this month's community podcast! We're recovering from the new year celebrations with some reactions to Simpsons news, deep dives into all the movies and TV we watched over the holidays, and we respond to some of our favorite Patreon comments. So listen here as we carefully read from a teleprompter!
