As we explore a sobering adventure for Homer, we welcome back the fantastic Eric Szyszka from the We Hate Movies podcast! In this memorable episode, not only does Homer get a DUI after defeating a giant spider, but Bart battles a hamster after destroying Lisa's giant tomato. Plus, many more tangents about Reefer Madness, Nixon/Kennedy debates, Herman's Head, and lots more trivia in this podcast about an uneven season 4 classic!

Another queer-themed episode of Simpsons means we again called upon two experts, Drew Mackie and Glen Lakin from the excellent Gayest Episode Ever Podcast! After Homer gets mad at Marge for reasons he thinks are defensible (they aren't), he moves in with two gay characters who both become key parts of Springfield. We deconstruct this 2003 approach to gay sitcom characters and their legacy (that Drew & Glen are connected to. Plus we detail how Harvey Fierstein wasn't in this while Weird Al was, with tons more trivia in this week's queer podcast!
