46: Krusty Gets Kancelled / Top 5 Episodes of Season 4

Imagine that bit in Krusty Gets Kancelled where 'GABBO' flashes on the screen repeatedly, except it says 'PODS IN THE KEY OF SPRINGFIELD' instead. This week on the podcast we break down the star-studded season 4 finale, try to unpack the absolute horror of Gabbo's existence, and James irritates Nick by insisting that they list their five favourite episodes of the season. We have a competition this week too! You can win a copy of Giant Margarita's 'Party Crashers'. Don't worry, I put it...

44: So It's Come To This: A Simpsons Clip Show / The Front

Hens love roosters! Astronauts love heat shield! Everyone else, loves Pods in the Key of Springfield! (Not many things rhyme with Springfield). This week, we watch a bad episode, and then a good one! It's the one where Bart and Lisa write a new Itchy and Scratchy cartoon. I know that one doesn't stand out in your head so much, but trust us, it's funny.

Eat My Shorts 10: Our (Presumably Correct) Season 30 Predictions

So get this - apparently The Simpsons is still going? It's true! Season 30 is starting on September 30. To help everyone prepare, we turned our in-depth knowledge and laser focus on the episode titles announced for the new season and guessed what 20 of next season's episodes will look like. Why are so many of them named after Beatles songs? Is there going to be a terrible reckoning this season? And could James and Nick make it as sports broadcasters if they took a hard turn? Presumptive...


43: Duffless / Last Exit to Springfield

Here it is - the (canonical) best episode of the show, as declared by Entertainment Weekly (if you want to hear about the actual best episode you're going to have to either scroll back to episode 40 or wait for next season, depending on your views). This week we talk through beer-related misadventures, spider issues, and ask our listeners to declare fealty to either #TeamJames or #TeamNick. We also talk about The Simpsons!

41: Brother from the Same Planet / I Love Lisa

This week, we love Lisa. And also Phil Hartman. It's a wild episode of this, the only Simpsons podcast. FB: facebook.com/podsinthekeyofspringfield Twitter: @KeySpringfield Insta: podsinthekeyofspringfield email: podsinthekeyofspringfield@gmail.com


Disenchantment First Thoughts (feat. The Simpsons Index)

Matt Groening has a new show! Holy heck, right? To mark this monumentous occasion we've joined forces with Elliot and BT from The Simpsons Index to discuss the first two episodes - what we thought, what we liked, what works and doesn't work, the discography of Hanson, Homer's 'The Odyssey', Smurfs, and a bunch of other stuff. Does it hold up to our expectations? Or did we come away from it...disencha(etc)? (I've watched the whole first season since, by the way. It's pretty decent. Not...


Eat My Shorts 9: Krusty's Super Fun House / Bart's Nightmare

In this, the 53rd episode of Pods in the Key of Springfield / the ninth episode of the Eat My Shorts subseries / the third episode in our newly christened 'Control Pods in the Key of Springfield' on-going...thing, we jump back into videogames (and talk about Shrek for a bit, naturally). This week we look at Krusty's Super Fun House - which is like Lemmings, but not as good - and Bart's Nightmare, which is actually kind of legitimately interesting. It's good! Come listen! email:...


40: Marge vs. the Monorail / Selma's Choice

Monorail! Monorail! Monorail! Monorail! I hear those guys are awfully loud? / They prefer 'vocally endowed'! Does this episode ever end? / Eventually, my listening friend! Aren't these guys just brain-dead slobs? / What are you, a podcast snob? Is this a full ninety minutes of revel? / Yes, I'd say that's about our level! The ring came off my pudding can! / Not really relevant, podcast fan! The number one episode, James' choice, Turn down the volume when he raises...


39: Lisa's First Word / Homer's Triple Bypass

Hey! You want to hear a drawn-out sugar crash as your podfriends talk about two very good episodes of The Simpsons? And then talk about Assassin's Creed a bunch? Well then, you're in luck! In this episode we travel back to 1983-ish to see Lisa's origin story, and then watch as Homer survives some dodgy surgery. How good is TV, though? Pretty good.

38: New Kid on the Block / Mr Plow

This week. as the universe of The Simpsons fissures and folds in on itself, we ask the important questions. Something is amiss, and as great as these episodes are (Señor Plow no es macho / Es solamente un borracho) we must face up to the darkness they contain. What is causing the rift in space and time we witnessed in New Kid on the Block? Is there a sinister cabal working to bring something malevolent about? Who is Doctor Tongue? Who do you think that is there? We also talk plows, and give...


37: The Itchy & Scratchy Movie / Marge Gets A Job

This week on the only Simpsons podcast on the Internet, we delve deeper and further into season 4! In The Itchy and Scratchy Movie, Bart is denied a film - will resident movie-grump Nick sympathise with his plight? Then in Marge Gets A Job, we get, uh, quite serious about impropriety in the work place (and very silly on Tom Jones).

Eat My Shorts 8: The Simpsons' Greatest Mysteries Explained

Springfield is a town of many mysteries, run by shadowy puppet-masters who control the lives of the town's citizens. Colossus, The Monroe Box, the omlette universe - there are many questions The Simpsons is yet to answer. This week, we go through a news article from a dubious Australian news site about Mike Reiss' new book, 'Springfield Confidential: Jokes, Secrets, and Outright Lies from a Lifetime Writing for The Simpsons', and unpack his reveals. Do we feel richer for having these...


36: Treehouse of Horror III (feat. a ghost)

Folks, do you...hear something on the recording? Something in the background? Under our voices? Something that shouldn't be there? Subtle and light in places, plainly audible in others? Listening back, there's definitely someone or something in the room with us. Hmmm. Look, we cover Treehouse of Horror III, or 3House of Horror, if you prefer, this week. It's a good episode of The Simpsons, but my mind is on other things. Is that laughter? Twitter: @KeySpringfield FB:...


35: Homer the Heretic / Lisa the Beauty Queen

This week on Pods in the Key of Springfield, James has a sore throat and can just barely croak out his bullshit! If you've ever wanted to hear a man slowly fall apart across 71 minutes, we've got it. Nick, whose throat is fine this week, wants to change PitKoS into a Slipknot podcast, but he does not succeed this week. Instead the pair discuss Homer the Heretic, in which Homer stops going to church, and Lisa the Beauty Queen, in which T is for Lisa's tooth-filled mouth. Season 4 is good so...


34: Kamp Krusty / A Streetcar Named Marge

Season four of The Simpsons kicks off with two ridiculously good episodes, one of which, frankly, *fucks* - and we get to it after discussing The Brady Bunch for a while. In Kamp Krusty, the kids are betrayed by their favourite clown (who is also one of our favourite clowns, all told) and in A Streetcar Named Desire Marge attacks Ned with a broken bottle and we get very excited and yell a bit. Also in this ep - we ponder future merchandise for the podcast, ponder some weird birthday cards...


The Missing Comic Book (feat. Alex Goldman)

In 1997, James was published for the first time. His letter in Simpsons Comics, which detailed why Homer was his favourite character on The Simpsons, was the first of many things James would write for print; it was the first step on a journey he has spent his life walking. Along the way the comic was lost, thrown out in a house clean when James was a child. For years, he has been haunted by the memory of the lost comic, the proof he had of that one early moment of pride and success. In...


Twenty-Two Films About Springfield: The Shining

This week James and Nick check out The Shining! It's a film James has seen before, but Nick, naturally enough, hasn't - how does it hold up against the image he's created in his head after watching The Simpsons over and over again? Let's find out!


33: Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes / Top 5 Episodes of Season 3

This week, on the Internet's top Danny DeVito fan podcast, we finally get around to Danny DeVito's second - and last significant - appearance on The Simpsons, a hit TV show from the 90s. Herb Powell is back! There's a lot of sperm in this episode too, so it's, you know, our wheelhouse. I guess. We also go over our top five episodes for season 3 of The Simpsons, which is, in many ways, the *third* season of the show. Then, right at the end, we have a special exclusive interview. I don't...
