S21E17 - American History X-Cellent

Dan and Jack celebrate Independence Day: Revocation with Season 21's American History X-cellent, an episode where Mr. Burns goes to jail and is also canonically a Nazi. What's in Jack's Dumb folder? What other fluids have a pre-form? Who the fuck cares? All that plus our thoughts on Arrested Development's season 5, TV tells, bee plots, Clapping With the Klinks, and good ideas done poorly (good ideas and they're done poorly.)

S21E05 - The Devil Wears Nada

Sixty minutes are on the clock and straight outta WEE Studios, Jack & Dan are mashing it in and discussing season 21's The Devil Wears Nada, an episode where Homer becomes Carl's assistant and Marge poses for a racy calendar before nearly having an affair with Ned Flanders. Why did Siskel & Ebert die? What is the code for pupils? How do you get the 100% completion rank at the end of Worst Episode Ever? All that plus the CCH Poundcast, This American Taint, and HAWUSE!

S21E19 - The Squirt and the Whale

Returning guest Harry Nelson of the Harry Says Yes podcast rejoins Dan and Jack and suggests watching Season 21's The Squirt and the Whale, a bittersweer Lisa-y episode about wind and whales (the two things Lisa likes). After a windstorm comes to Springfield, Lisa devotes her efforts to saving a beached whale while Bart acts like an asshole and Homer does other things. Why does Jack pet every dog he sees seven times? Does random violence to strangers make Dan laugh? Will Pop-rika become the Internet's hottest selling spice? All that, plus the Tremors life-cycle, Harry drops his notes, and we talk about our #mydesktop wallpapers as we crush our golden iron fists.

S21E16 - The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed

Business as usual when WEE celebrate a belated Easter and Passover by watching Season 21's "The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed," a delightful episode where Flanders takes the Simpsons to Israel for a loosely defined reason, Homer is at his jerkiest and most sacreligious, and the fun never ends! (Because it never begins! Hah!) When did Bart's catchphrase evolve from "Ay Carumba!" to "Karate!"? Is Sacha Baron Cohen good in this episode or not? And who will win the Popeye's Ultimate Mystery Sweepstakes? All that, plus Dan Brown related puns, how old and out of touch WEE are, and impressions of Ullman-era Simpsons family members talking about butts.

S21E21 - Moe Letter Blues

WEE has a big announcement this week: we're getting married! Oh, and the introduction of the Dave System. And the waiter has been brutally beaten. But first, we dive into the miasmas of season 21's Moe Letter Blues with special guest Dave Dormon, all while slandering Bing Crosby's corpse and discussing that hot new app, with a film adaptation starring Seth Rogen as The Cup. Why are there no good married couples in Springfield? How did the writers settle on rehashing a semi-obscure movie from the forties? And is everyone caught up on the hit sitcom How I Met Your Valley? Plus, the real origin of Game of Throne's The Mountain, comparing penises to the Wicked Witch of the East's feet, and not being good at math or boobs.

S21E04 – Treehouse of Horror XX

We’re back with the hit “Simpsons” podcast that our mother’s have attempted to listen to! And what kind of “Simpsons” show would we be without a Halloween episode airing well into November? So today we watch and dissect “Treehouse of Horror XX” with our guest, Mr. Nick Noga. Three chilling tales of references to better material that almost kind of work if you ignore the holes. We’ll discuss the lazy trope of the nagging wife, whether Groundskeeper Willie has been immune to change in later years, and the intricacies of the “got your nose” game for children. Are quality jokes about religion the only constant on the show? Was the world clamoring for the two most nasal and gravelly characters to share a song? Do vampires even have their own blood? We figure it all out and make it to the safe zone in the latest “Worst Episode Ever.”
