Apr 5, 2017

Bart joins the Junior Campers after a sugar rush, which somehow strands Homer, Flanders, Bart, and Rodd in the middle of the ocean. We deconstruct all that as well as knife safety and how to buy peanuts in this week’s…

Mar 29, 2017

Mar 22, 2017

Marge finally gets a friend of her own in this homage to Thelma & Louise, as well as the introduction to ballet, invisible soda, and the introduction of Miguel Sanchez, all in this week’s podcast…

Mar 15, 2017

For the the fourth time, it’s another Halloween with The Simpsons, and we dare say it’s the best one they ever did. We’ve got Satan, gremlins, and vampires, plus the scariest of all… DOGS PLAYING POKER! All that and more in this week's podcast!

Mar 8, 2017

We hope you watched Citizen Kane recently, because this episode is chockful of references to the iconic film. But also in this bearish ‘sode with special appearances by The Ramones and one of our most repeated lines of a single word. Give it a watch…

Mar 1, 2017

It’s a new era in The Simpsons and thus for our podcast as well! We enter the David Mirkin seasons, we describe the new writers and directors, as Homer heads to college for the first time in the hopes of keeping his job. Plus, we all learn how we’re the exact nerds from this episode…

Feb 22, 2017

Smack us with a rake in the face — it’s Sideshow Bob’s greatest plot to kill Bart ever! It’s also an end of an era for the show, and we’re here to dissect it all, including explaining all the references to Cape Fear AND the HMS Pinafore! Try your best not to grumble…

Feb 15, 2017

Season 5 is upon us (kinda) and we hope you like The Beatles! The season 5 broadcast premiere sees Homer form a barbershop quartet with no previous experience, become famous for a few weeks, and then lose it all, just like The Beatles (kinda). Listen up! It’s better than winning a Grammy…

Feb 8, 2017

We’re breaking format, but for the best reason of all! Simpsons veteran, writer, executive producer, and awesome guy, Bill Oakley talked with us for an entire hour this week! He tells us about the switch between seasons 4 and 5, his philosophy for writing the characters, episodes he wish they’d made and so much more! We’re more excited than Al Gore to present this one to y’all…

Feb 1, 2017

We wrap up the fourth broadcast season with the arrival of Gabbo, the fall of Krusty, a cavalcade of guest stars, and even the sweetest plum, a special surprise in this week’s podcast…

We meet Superintendent Chalmers for the first time, Bart gets home schooled, and Lisa battles against animal cruelty in one of season 4’s best episodes! Listen along to hear our podcast thoughts…

Jan 11, 2017

The Simpsons gets very inside in this episode about writing cartoons, while Homer goes back to school to complete his high school education. We cover all this wonky episode in our newest podcast…

Jan 4, 2017

Yes, it’s The Simpsons’ first clip show and we’re doing a whole episode of it! Not only that, we somehow got a good amount to say about it! So listen up – the episode might be recycled, but this podcast is brand new…

Dec 28, 2016

Lisa needs braces and Homer needs to save the dental plan in this week’s union-loving episode. We dig into it and it shall surely by the blurst of times on our podcast. D’oh, you stupid monkey…

Dec 21, 2016

Homer is arrested for a DUI, getting him to rethink his drinking habits. Meanwhile, Lisa experiments on Bart, Bart is electrocuted, and we reexamine the sitcom Herman’s Head in this week’s podcast…

Dec 14, 2016

We hope you choo-choo-choose to listen to this week’s podcast. It’s a Valentine’s Day classic where we get to know Ralph, Lisa breaks hearts, Krusty celebrates an anniversary, and we get to know our mediocre presidents…

Dec 7, 2016

This is one of the weirdest episodes of the fourth season, and secretly sorta about Tom Cruise! This is a classic episode of Bart getting his first replacement father. Learn all about Corey, the Big Ear Family, and how something can be even more painful then it looks on this week’s podcast…

Nov 30, 2016

Jub Jub! Yes, Selma has a fear of dying alone while the rest of the family is dreaming of going to a theme park. And somehow it all points to Murphy Brown and Johnny Carson clips. Find out how on this week’s podcast…

We travel back to 1984 to learn all the kids’ first words, burgers won at Olympics, and tons more facts! Listen to this podcast or a clown might eat you…

Nov 2, 2016

Is this week’s episode the best Simpsons ever? We zip up our jackets, put it in H, and dissect Mr. Plow! Not only that, but we’ve got personal stories of meeting Adam West!!!

Oct 26, 2016

Bart has his first crush on a special guest star, while Homer tries to have all he could eat while meeting a certain sea captain. All that and Conan memories on this week’s podcast…

Oct 19, 2016

As the title suggests, Marge starts working at the power plant to Homer’s chagrin, Bart cries wolf, and most importantly, there’s a very indulgent Citizen Kane reference, all in this week’s podcast…
