The Otto Show w/ Brian Brushwood and Justin Robert Young

We've got a supersized episode recorded live in Austin, Texas with special guests Brian Brushwood and Justin Robert Young of Night Attack.

Plus, there's a marriage proposal – you'll never guess who's tying the knot.


A Star is Born Again w/ Joel Kim Booster

We're doing something a little different this week. As you know each week we usually discuss our guests favorite episode. Joel Kim Booster is a casual Simpsons fan … he's more of a Futurama kind of guy if you ask him. Instead of discussing an episode he loves we're diving into an episode he's not the biggest fan of. This might be a first for @simpsonspod! Don't worry we still found plenty reasons to enjoy this episode. And maybe we even convinced Joel Kim Booster to give the Simpsons another...


The Crepes of Wrath w/ Luke McGarry

It's cannon guys … Bart speaks french! This week, we'll welcome Luke McGarry. He's a long time friend of the show, but has never actually been on to talk Simpsons.

Two Bad Neighbors w/ Scott Gairdner

This week, Scott Gairdner (Podcast:The Ride, Moonbeam City) joins us in the studio to talk about Two Bad Neighbors. In 1992, President George Bush famously gave a campaign speech declaring he wanted to have American families be “a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons.” This episode, which aired in 1996, was inspired by the animosity towards the show by the Bushes.
