The Simpsons: The Town

Join Scott and his special guests, Kevin and Hamish, as they breakdown and explain every little detail and reference from the Boston-themed episode of The Simpsons entitled "The Town"! 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! Hamish is still a little bitter from the treatment his native Australia received on The Simpsons years ago in the episode "Bart Vs. 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! They'll explain every sign, every poster, every Boston joke, and every face in the crowd. So grab an iced coffee from Dunkies, turn off your old VHS recording of The Movie Loft, and get ready for one of the most detailed, comprehensive, and wicked awesome episodes of Hitting Play EVAH!

Am I Right?? (w/ Jesse Pruden and Evan Wilson)

Join Scott and his very special guests, hosts of the hilarious Canadian Comedy Award nominated radio show "Am I Right??", Jesse Pruden and Evan Wilson! Evan and Jesse are usually in Calgary, but for this conversation, they are strewn about Canada with Jesse angrily sitting on a park bench in Vancouver while Evan enjoys a coffee at the airport in Edmonton. Listen as they discuss some memorable moments from the long run of their radio show. From hilarious returning guests like Andy Kindler and Tom Scharpling, to teaching Norm MacDonald about Twitter, and other times the interviews did go as planned. They'll also ramble on about Pop-Up Video, Del Amitri, and so much more! This episode was a blast! So grab your headphones, and get ready for this continent spanning conversation!

The MAD Magazine TV Special

Join Scott for a look back at a failed pilot made by one of comedy's most enduring properties: MAD Magazine! Listen as he details the interesting history of MAD Magazine, starting out as a comic book in the 1950's, then making the switch to the magazine format to avoid conforming to the Comics Code after publisher William Gaines' testimony before congress. He'll talk about ABC's commissioning this pilot in 1974 and why it ultimately never aired. He'll also breakdown the many segments in this special, from shorts by Don Martin and Antonio Prohias' Spy vs. Spy, to longer features like Mort Drucker's Godfather parody "The Odd Father" and others from "the usual gang of idiots". And if that wasn't enough, you'll also get the history of MAD's other forays into television, and the mysterious origins of MAD Magazine icon Alfred E. Neuman. So get ready to say "What, me worry?", as you listen to this page turning episode of the podcast. (And don't forget the fold-in at the end!)

The Ren & Stimpy Show: Space Madness/The Boy Who Cried Rat!

Join Scott and Lily as they breakdown "Space Madness" and "The Boy Who Cried Rat", two hilarious stories from a classic episode of "The Ren & Stimpy Show"! Listen as they detail the tumultuous history of Ren and Stimpy, from the masterful early episodes with creator John K. at the helm, to Nickelodeon's split with John K., the banned episode, and even the much maligned Spike TV series "Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon". They'll discuss the great moments of "Space Madness", including its retro sci-fi look, it's wonderful musical accompaniment, and of course, Ren's descent into madness. From there, they'll discuss the hilarious "The Boy Who Cried Rat!", Ren and Stimpy's homage to Tom and Jerry, and other classic cartoon predecessors. And if that wasn't enough, they'll also breakdown two great shorts included in the episode: a commercial for the nauseating breakfast cereal, Sugar Frosted Lumps, and Ren and Stimpy's strange preparations for Yak Shaving Day. This episode has it all! So finish your kitty stew paste, get your toaster helmet strapped on, and go mad with us! (Thanks for hitting play, and not the history eraser button!)
