The Simpsons: The Town and Super Bowl LI (w/ Matt Selman)

Join Scott, Kevin, and Hamish as they welcome a very special guest, Simpsons executive producer Matt Selman, for a revisiting of the hilarious Boston-themed episode "The Town"! Listen as Matt shares some inside details about the episode, including its original story, involving conspiracies and red coats, a one-time only Easter egg for a re-airing of the episode, and how it became a wonderful love letter to Boston, how an episode is made, as well as the New England Patriots' recent improbable championship win, and how The Simpsons eerily predicted the victory and parade back in October! They'll also discuss Tom Brady's uncharacteristic local commercial, their individual experiences watching the big game last Sunday, and various Boston area eateries. If that wasn't enough, Matt addresses questions about a possible Simpsons movie sequel, a (hopefully far off) series finale, and also talks about a possible episode for next season, and much, much more! This one is a ton of fun, especially if you share a love of The Simpsons and Boston sports. So grab a grinder and a bottle of Brockton's Best, and move from Springfield to Boston along with us!
 
If you're listening as this episode is released, make sure to set your DVRs or watch The Simpsons on FOX this Sunday, February 12th at 7:30pm, and lookout for a one-time special Easter egg reference to the New England Patriots' championship win!

Listen as Kevin and Scott give Hamish a full education in all things Massachusetts, from the founding of the Massachusetts Bay Colony all the way to Dunkin Donuts and Cumberland Farms!

Australia", but he warmly embraces this hilarious take on New England life and culture! They'll talk all about the unique Jordan's Furniture stores, the New England Patriots and their various scandals, Paul Revere, traffic, Make Way For Ducklings, candlepin bowling, Quincy Market, Newbury Comics, and so much more!

The Simpsons (Shorts): Good Night

Join Lily and Scott as they take a look back to a pivotal point in the history of television. A time when a successful producer returned to television and helped a talented British actress with her sketch comedy show by approaching a comic strip artist with the idea of creating some animated shorts. Those cartoons increased in popularity to the point hat they were spun-off into their own show, where they've been a household name for almost three decades: The Simpsons! Listen as they breakdown the very first Simpsons short ever to air on The Tracey Ullman Show entitled "Good Night"! They'll discuss the early history of The Simpsons, from Matt Groening's attempt to retain publishing rights to his other characters, and Dan Castellaneta's Walter Matthau-like voice for Homer, to the strange look of the characters and the reason the shorts were never given an official release. So take a trip back to April 19, 1987 and see where it all started! And don't let the bed bugs bite!

The Simpsons: Bart Vs. Australia (w/ Hamish McGregor)

Join Lily, Shawn, Scott, and special guest Hamish, joining them all the way from Australia, as they discuss the classic (and somewhat controversial) Simpsons episode: Bart Vs. Australia! Listen as Hamish sets the matters straight regarding all of the misrepresented aspects of Australian culture in this episode. Do Koalas create power outages? Is Foster's a popular Australian beer? How prevalent is boomerang throwing? Does Hamish eat kangaroos? How culturally accurate is the Outback Steakhouse? Hamish patiently fields all of these questions, and many more! A discussion that spans the globe! This episode is a bottle of beauty!
