As we go deeper into season 14, we are left with this question: What if you wrote Homer The Heretic but without any of the brilliant satire or insight into religion? You'd probably end up with something like Pray Anything, where Homer sorta causes a biblical-level flood that somehow is canonical. Also featured in this episode: All male arks, weird deleted scenes, drunkenly worshipping deer heads, Maggie choking on dust, and much more in this week's podcast!

To celebrate Conan O'Brien's first Simpsons ep, we're welcoming on another tall funny man, Steve Yurko from the One Piece Podcast and ProZD Plays Games YouTube channel! As we dig into a tale of boyhood crushes, a sea captain replacing Don Rickles, and secretly rewritten scripts, Steve also gives us insight on director Wes Archer from working with him! Fairly warned be ye for this week's podcast!

It's time for us to cover another of the most controversial episodes in Simpsons history, and this time it's when Marge takes steroids. The story starts from an interesting and real place of Marge being the victim of a jarringly realistic mugging, then in the third act veers into a wacky area of comedy full of dated jokes. Listen now with either an intense lifting session or a game of Tetris!

It's a major ep for Simpsons history and for that reason, we welcome a pair of first-time guests, Matt Bors and Ben Clarkson, creators of the hilarious satirical comic Justice Warriors! Together we explore the first ep written by Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein, as they tell the story of Marge and Homer working together to fix their slanty shanty. This leads to Mr. Burns sexually harassing her, Tom Jones being kidnapped, and Bart battling a wolf for some reason all on this week's 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 dawn of season 35, new Simpsons-themed shoes, the legendary caramel on the ceiling of the writers' room, a real-life Moe's Tavern in Austin, and more.  And, as always, we read and respond to your questions and comments from the most recent round of episodes. It's all happening on this month's Talk to the Audience—the only podcast more entertaining than a movie starring Liza Minelli and Mickey Rourke!
