Then we talk about the less-fun IRL origins of whacking day, explain the many dirty jokes in this ep, and much more, so listen now to see if the bullies win mountain bikes!

    Talking Simpsons - The Bart of War With Brendan James

    Talking Simpsons - The Bart of War With Brendan James

    We're joined again by journalist/podcaster Brendan James, cohost of the leftist history podcast Blowback, just in time for an episode inspired by America's wars. After the unexpected reveal that Ned love The Beatles, Bart joins the Pre-Teen Braves. That then leads to an extensive F Troop parody that's a gateway to the secrets of one lead actor on the show. Then it all comes to a head with a line that Fox tried to censor. All that, plus Ralph crashing through a window is born in this week's nondenominational podcast!

Simpsons fan! ,

Good podcast

Old review “ Decent podcast, This is a very good podcast! I like how there is not much profanity but I wish that Matt and Robbie would spend time talking about the GOOD parts of The Simpsons and not always the bad parts! Other than that, it is a good podcast!” New review: this show is really good! I have been listening to this podcast a lot more because The Simpsons Show (once my favorite) has become the podcast I listen to when I can’t think of anything else to listen to because the hosts rarely talk about the (many) good parts of The Simpsons😢. Anyway, this podcast is good compared to the Simpsons Show. I still stand by my statement about how this podcast has a lot of profanity!

Nah

I hated it. Not funny. They are the worst. 🥴😈👺😪

Nothing new here

Two internet males walk through an episode of television that is universally regarded as a work of genius and agree that it’s funny. Along the way you’ll hear some of the worst political takes you’ve ever encountered, as well as quite a few ads. You won’t hear any new information if you’ve already listened to the commentaries for these episodes and the guys themselves are pretty bland personality-wise. They get two stars because their voices are pleasant to listen to.
