On this week's episode, concerned citizen Mike Mayfield (Mr. Pickles, @mikelmayfield) joins us to discuss the senseless violence and mayhem of season 2's classic "Itchy & Scratchy & Marge." We talk about writer/animator tension, outrage culture, and whether or not it's really easier to draw a pie than an ice cream cone. Plus: HAS ALLIE BEEN A PARENT ALL ALONG?!?!?!?!?
This week we’re joined by the wonderful Haley Mancini (The Powerpuff Girls!) to discuss the heartbreaking and hilarious season three opener “Stark Raving Dad.” We read the episode’s bafflingly odd Wikipedia summary, marvel at the show’s mastery of “kid moments,” and discuss famous Simpsons “writer” Roy G. Royerson. Plus: couldeatatarbys is back in action!
NOTE: THIS EPISODE WAS RECORDED BY ALLIE AND JULIA’S DESIGNATED VOICE DOUBLES.
This week’s show is a celebration of legalized gambling as we discuss “$pringfield (or, How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Legalized Gambling)” with the man who drafted the Paris Peace Accords, Julian McCullough (@JulezMac, Julian Loves Music podcast). We discuss past guest Saul Sossason, the show’s honest portrayal of addiction issues, and whether or not Fuller House is just a post-modern prank*. Plus: We applaud Julian for having never done crack! Great job, Julian!
This episode is so great it’ll leave you saying “…Vera said that?”
The girls sit down with actor Jeremy Guskin (’Til Death, Art School Confidential and JULIA’S OLD HS THEATER TEACHER!) and gush about the Simpsons’ infamous international episode. They discuss overly ambitious yet wildly obscure Halloween costumes, the real life story behind this episode, and that fresh faced young upstart Martin Scorsese. This episode is so great it'll have your brain saying "Just listen to the show and I'll release some more endorphins."
