S13E08 - Sweets and Sour Marge

Dan and Jack, the Info Wars of Simpsons Podcasts, take away from society and cover Season 13's Sweets and Sour Marge, an Oops! All Berries episode that wastes Ben Stiller and has Marge (sort of) take on the sugar industry and fail miserably while Homer goes on an adventure with an actual, canonical vampire. Will this be our new Worst Episode Ever? What will Matt Groening's next Fox show be? How are WEE going to die? All that plus poop puns, rumblings of hate, and Post-Modern Family.

S13E22 - Papa's Got a Brand New Badge

Dan and Jack celebrate their Seventy Epiventery with a returning special guest, Lani Harms! They discuss Season 13's Papa's Got a Brand New Badge, an episode where Homer becomes a vigilante after Lisa's stuff is stolen. Wait, not a vigilante, he starts a private security company, so it's different from that other episode. Homer also faces off with the mafia on the front lawn after reneging on Marge's pretzel debt...? Or was it ferrets or something? Who are these jokes for? Was this episode scripted by O. Henry? Is a sideways bull breaking into K-Mart to steal some dishwashers? All that plus rancid icing, Mar & Momie, and Gotham Season Four: No Batman Yet. PS, Give us your money.

S13E07 - Brawl in the Family

This week Dan, Jack, and our intern (a talking mouse) watch Season 13's "Brawl in the Family," an episode reminiscent of both the heavenly classic and hellish post-classic eras. The Simpsons are broken apart, by Monopoly, by cougars, and by Vegas cocktail waitresses, all in one episode! Can Al Jean quantum leap and right what once went wrong with Homer and Flanders's Vegas wives? Was "Edna Krabappoly" a harbinger of The Simpsons collapsing in on itself? And how do you spend your time in an all boys high school? (Simpsons quizes!) All that, plus, our earliest memories, Groophic pushes his creationist agenda, and visions of a a world where Season 40 is a possibility.

S13E21 - The Frying Game

It's a Popeye's-fueled bender as WEE watch Season 13's "The Frying Game" then slowly lose our minds. Homer volunteers to help an old woman, who then dies, and Homer is blamed. Sounds like comedy gold to us. We're joined by guest and Simpsons Trivia expert Rusty Harding who actually prepared and drops the knowledge that John Swartzwedler - Simpsons Super-Pro and VIP - wrote this fascinatingly weird episode. Does the twist of this episode hold up under any sort of scrutiny at all? How does Homer alternate between world's best husband and murderous coward? And how could "Frasier" succeed where "The Tortellis" failed?  Plus, an extended conversation about character actor Dan Hedaya's body of work, tiny doll clothes for your genitals, and a few visits from a friendly, chatty Dalek. Enjoy, and make sure you're subscribed to our feed or you could miss out on our bonus episodes, which may or may not be complete nonsense.

S13E17 - Gump Roast

Our twentieth episodery already? Time flies at WEE Studios... To celebrate, Jack and Dan endure the season 13 clip show "Gump Roast," which features a timely "Forrest Gump" parody, clips from much better episodes, and the damned catchy "They'll Never Stop The Simpsons." Does every episode of "The Simpsons" take place in Homer's mind? Does all of television take place in the mind of a small boy? And why has this show not done another clip show in the past 13 years? Find out, plus Dan talks about the worst X-Men power, Jack ties "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" with Empty Nest, and together they get more gongs than the breakdancing robot that caught on fire. And, because you tolerated it, another installment of Dan's awful teenage Simpsons fan-fiction.
