We're once more joined again by great journalist/podcaster Brendan James, cohost of the brilliant Blowback series as we dig into a tale of college and germs! We talk a lot about Lisa finding a new lease on life posing as a college student, while Bart learns to love a normal life inside a bubble. We explain all the references and context like a class of Passive Analysis of Visual Iconography, all in one podcast!

We welcome back fan-favorite guest Griffin Newman from the excellent podcast Blank Check for a classic country episode! We discuss Matt Groening's only solo writing credit on the series, how it ties into a biopic from 1980, the guest star power of Beverly D'Angelo, and so much more as Homer becomes imitates Colonel Parker in a more grounded way than Tom Hanks. So grab your moonshine, say Ya-Hoo, and listen along to this week's podcast!
