Recorded LIVE on Periscope, Jack & Dan celebrate their 100th episode ever by going inside the hype and watching their most requested episode ever, Season 23's Moe Goes From Rags to Riches, a tale narrated by a talking rag that spans time, reveals Moe's yeti parentage, and might as well be static for twenty one minutes. Is there a Unified Theory of Post-Classic Simpsons? Did they have to make the Flanders pun? Who was the best Lex Luthor? How much will it take in donations on our new Patreon page for Dan and Jack to wrestle naked? All that plus super camel cancer, semen hands, circle-ogles, and Dan's new problematic character.Read More

S23E09 - Holidays of Future Passed
Happy Holidays, WEE universe! Dan, Jack, and special guest Cara McIlwaine celebrate Christmas with Season 23's Days of Future Passed, an episode where Bart and Lisa are estranged from their children, Maggie is having a baby and Homer is a sober grandfather. What was this episode's TV Guide description? What should be the true spinoff to The Simpsons? Does Jack need fourth walls? All that plus fake life, The J.K. Trio, and a future perfect penis bit.Read More
Jack & Dan think outside the box for this spooooktacular episode and cover a Halloween episode... in October! This time, it's Season 23's Treehouse of Horror XXII, where Homer farts to talk and Maude Flanders makes sweet love to Satan. Why is "The Shinning" such a perfect Halloween vignette? Who is the mascot of Jack's production company? And what is the justification for making Jackie Mason drive all the way downtown? All that plus the surprising origin of Stinkeye, no-draft jokes, and a shocking reveal of why the bus has never come to the WEE Studios Bus Stop.Read More
Jack and Dan are being brev this week while they watch Season 23's A Totally Fun Thing Bart Will Never Do Again and discuss experimentation in the post-classic era and just how Simpsony a Simpsons episode needs to feel. Can Jack make up for that mess of an intro? Why can't The Simpsons let the ocean tell the joke? Won't you let us take you on a WEE Cruise? All that plus mass graves, the weird weirds and Dan's spot on impression of people from Columbus, Ohio.Read More
A slight delay, but WEE're back with a brand new episode that may surprise you. Special guest Josh Kurp from Uproxx.com makes Jack and Dan watch Season 23's The Book Job, a satirical take on the publishing industry that doubles as Neil Gaiman's comedy debut and an "Ocean's 11" parody. Lisa uncovers a sinister plot behind young adult novels that leads Homer and Bart to write their own. Doesn't sound like comedy gold, but maybe comedy bronze? What's the line between art and commercialism on The Simpsons? Why did we laugh at jokes we didn't even like? And is there a parallel universe where The Simpsons ended after Season 9? (And what are the us-es of that universe podcasting about?) All that, plus Josh talks about his history with The Simpsons, the first CDs we ever bought, and Jack's in-progress book series about coal miner angels. Sorry if the audio is below our usual standards, blame the Ghost Prots. For more from Josh, check out the WEE approved Uproxx.com.Read More
Everyone's favorite tertiary school official gets his moment in the spotlight in Season 23's "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts," Super Duper Intendent Chalmers. Can Chalmers succeed where a string of teachers, parents, and parental figures failed by making Bart love learning? Or will Bart just turn into a terrorist? (Or both?) Dan and Jack are joined by special guest Brice Canedo-Pullan, assistant editor of the CBS show "Blue Bloods," who helps suss out this episode's strange pacing issues, dig into these guest animator couch sequences the HD era is so fond of, and analyze jokes about operating systems. Why does the news have a children's drawing of Bart's death by hanging? Why are we deprived of a long-winded Grampa story? And what's the deal with lateness fees, guys? Also, this episode features Nelson's mother, have we seen her before? All this, plus Jack can't say "anthropomorphic," Dan makes a terrible beets pun, and deep conversation about the opening credits to "Boy Meets World."Read More
It's New Year's Eve and we've put out our least new listener friendly episode yet! Yes, as promised (threatened?) we watch Season 23's "How I Wet Your Mother" but only after we knock back a few cocktails. You'd need a drink too if you watched an episode where Homer wets the bed, so the family goes inside his dreams to figure out why. Oh and also they are chased by the specter of Death for some reason. And yes, we go way off the rails talking about "The Terminator" and Jack's junior high adventures, but if you skip to 25 minutes in, we do talk about the actual episode. How did Homer become garbage made flesh? Which character voices have changed the least in 25 years? And should we ever do another drunken podcast? Plus, a new game where Dan guesses which Simpsons episode titles are real and which ones Jack made up. We expect some hate-filled emails, but we like this episode and hope you do too. If you actually listen and enjoy it, let us know! Business as usual in 2015, and thanks everyone for a great 2014!Read More
The rumors are true, we are a NEW and NOTEWORTHY podcast on iTunes. Suck it, Mr. and Mrs. Money Cast! Today, Lady Gags comes to Springfield?! Is it true?? AND special guest Dan Ozzi from the VICE music blog “Noisey?” That must mean it’s time for season 23’s finale, “Lisa Goes Gaga.” And boy does she, in a “joke” filled episode where there’s no time to feel anything. Because, damnit, we must reference every outfit Lady Gaga has ever worn, then cram in a few musical numbers. We discuss the evolution of celebrity appearances on The Simpsons, wonder what the show might look like if it started today, and extensively compare this episode to its much better predecessor, “Stark Raving Dad.” Do you really need to have Flanders meet Gaga? Why wasn’t this episode just a remake of the seminal Chuck Norris classic, “Sidekicks?” And how come no one has seen Michael Jackson’s body lately (#wheresthatbody)? All that, plus fetal moonshine, the many deaths of Moe, and (ugh) “Homer Face.” Enjoy “Worst Episode Ever” although maybe we should have cut all of this…Read More
