    Talking Simpsons - Kill the Alligator and Run With Alex Navarro

    Once more we've got Giant Bomb's Alex Navarro joining us, and this time it's for perhaps the weakest episode of season 11! Homer can't sleep, which leads him to an insomnia-induced freakout that brings him to Spring Break for some reason. After hanging out with Kid Rock of all awful people, the family randomly kills an alligator, and then more crazy things happen that would make this description even longer! So get ready to build this podcast on rock and roll!

    Talking Simpsons - Bart To The Future With Mike Drucker

    Talking Simpsons - Bart To The Future With Mike Drucker

    This week we welcome back Mike Drucker for an ominous episode that predicted the future of 2016 in 2000! But beyond the heinous predictions, this episode also gifted us with future Bart as one of the most realistic dirtbags to ever be seen on TV, as well as some pretty dated jokes about tribal gaming. So listen now for some tasty podcast tuneskis, unless you only used to be cool!

Great show that due to its topic has passed its peak.

I’ve enjoyed this podcast for a long time. Unfortunately, we’ve reached the point in the history of the Simpsons where the show is no longer tolerable and it’s a bit painful to listen to these guys try to convince themselves that it is still good. If you’ve never listened to it, I’d recommend listening to the first 8 1/2 seasons or so and I might redo the same. It’s been fun guys and I enjoy listening to your other podcast when it covers a cartoon I’m familiar with, but it’s time for me to hop off the Talking Simpsons train.

What is going on?

Ordinarily I love the podcast, but lately the upload is about an already covered episode. What’s going on, guys? Are you ok? Do you require medical assistance?

Best. Podcast. Ever

I’ve been a Patreon for 2 years and my brother and I look forward to this every week! I’ve gotten closer to my brother watching an episode of The Simpsons and then listen to the podcast after. Keep it up Henry and Bob!
