    Josh Weinstein talks really fast in this one. He tries to talk about every single show he's worked on post-Simpsons.  Mission Hill! In Search of the Partridge Family! The Mullets! And, so much more. Can he recall 'em all? Will he have to return for another episode? Only one way to find out.

my spirit is embiggened

Being a lifelong Simpsons fan who doesn't have a lot of actual people to talk Simpsons with, I can't believe it took me so long to search for a dedicated podcast to reminisce with. I listened to a few episodes of a bunch of Simpsons pods out there and this one is undoubtedly my favourite because they are the type of fan that I am: devoted to the early stuff, not too into the minutiae of it all, no holier-than-thou attitude towards other fan; just a love for the show. You also learn a lot through the writers and other awesome guests they get.
