Ah, infotainment.

Even if you feel like you know everything there is to know about Simpsons, give this a listen. Talking Simpsons has really come into its own over the past couple years to be one of the best podcasts out there. Incredibly informative and impeccably researched (the interview episodes are particularly good). For good and bad, I’m seeing a lot of the show in a new light. I have to recommend subscribing via Patreon to get the equally excellent and well-researched What a Cartoon and What a Cartoon Movie podcasts. Its a little steep at $10 a month but very much worth it if you like the main feed stuff.

This is a PHENOMENAL show

Okay, so I figured I’d branch out one day and download random podcasts on a whim. This was by far one of the gems I discovered. In depth analysis of the Simpsons, with commentary on the cultural climate the episode was released in, AND audio clips from the actual episode? This show is a slam dunk if you ask me. It was a very welcome and unexpected trip down memory lane. Thanks guys!

Great knowledge and research

I have always loved The Simpsons. I watched the “golden years” live, and continue to watch regularly through the magic of DVD. These guys bring a whole new level of knowledge and insight. From different takes on jokes, to delving into references I never got, to producer and writer influence, they are giving me a whole new insight into the show I love.

Also, lots of 1 star reviews from people pretending the Simpsons is a politically neutral show. These guys are not leftist extremists. They are level headed, intelligent individuals getting lambasted by bad-faith reviewers.
