For this special episode about Selma Bouvier, we have a big-time returning guest, the creator of Steven Universe, Rebecca Sugar! (Check out her new album, Spiral Bound, now!) After discussing her history with the show, we dig into this story of parenthood, theme parks, funerals, and lizards that all have something to do with the fourth season of Murphy Brown. Learn about all of that and whether grocery employees wear belts in this week's podcast!

We are nearing the end of John Swartzwelder's time writing for the show, and he's turned in a quality script as the show gets political again in 2003. Krusty is a celebrity running for public office (can you believe it) and has the support of The Simpsons and Republicans. But is it possible to make a difference without Walter Mondale's help? We explain that, references to Joe Millionaire, Ronald Reagan, and more in this week's podcast!

We have returned to San Francisco for a true classic ep, and brought the amazing Chris Wade from the awesome podcasts Chapo Trap House, And Introducing..., and Hell on Earth! Live for San Francisco Sketchfest 2024, we were joined by over 100 fans at The Gateway Theatre to discuss the fabled Conan O'Brien and Rich Moore half-hour that parodies The Music Man and The Towering Inferno in equal measure. Learn about every single reference from Nimoy to Robosaurus, plus a look at the legacy of the Monorail in this exciting night of podcasts!

Happy New Year, listeners! We had a very eventful January to reflect on, not just with Simpsons news about Emmys and toys. We also did a ton of traveling to New York City, Tokyo, and San Francisco that we are so excited to share with all of you. Plus, tons of podcast news for the start of 2024, and we reply to some really great Patreon comments to start the next 12 months right!
