    We're thrilled to share this conversation with author and illustrator, Liz Climo!

She shares a very touching story about her book: You're Mom: A Little Book for Mothers.

    This week, we welcome back Simpsons writer Brian Kelley! Last time on "ECUS" we talked to him about the Season 29 premiere episode "The Serfsons". This time, we expand the conversation to include his experiences writing on Futurama, NewsRadio and the much-maligned Friends spin-off Joey! Brian's impressive resume is as long as his spirit is embiggening to the smallest man (which is to say, a LOT). Join Allie and Julia as we venture down this '90s-centric walk down Brian's memory lane -- including the time he wrote sketches for his comedy hero Steve Martin on SNL!

Love 👍👍

Really love this Pod. I love hearing from from the writers, especially Bill Oakley (more please) and Nancy Cartwright was incredible. I know it’s easier said than done but it would be such a thrill to hear from more voice actors and creators.

Stay away from politics

I am a huge Simpsons fan and enjoyed learning more about writers, producers and cast. However, it is discouraging when the show goes off the rails from time to time with rants about how terrible Trump is. I get it, people in entertainment lean to the left. However, alienating half your shows listeners who lean to the right is not good for ratings.

More Simpsons, less politics.

Get over yourselves

Amazing how they can talk about something so funny in such a boring way. The hosts will go on for hours about their personal lives or trump or any other inane subject they can think of and simply won’t stay on topic. How many times an episode do we have to hear you work for mad? Also tons of ads. Do not recommend.
