Stand-up comedian and writer Blaine Capatch joins us this week to talk about "The Mansion Family." It's not from the golden era, and it's newer episode than most episodes we usually discuss. Which is weird to say considering the episode is actually 18 years old. We'll discuss the Britney Spears cameo in this episode, why it's important to read the Hardy Boys book series, and the funniest things ever to happen in international waters. Plus, what it's like to sit in on a Simpsons table read according to Blaine!

We've got a supersized episode recorded live in Austin, Texas with special guests Brian Brushwood and Justin Robert Young of Night Attack.

Joel Kim Booster

We're doing something a little different this week. As you know each week we usually discuss our guests favorite episode. Joel Kim Booster is a casual Simpsons fan … he's more of a Futurama kind of guy if you ask him. Instead of discussing an episode he loves we're diving into an episode he's not the biggest fan of. This might be a first for @simpsonspod! Don't worry we still found plenty reasons to enjoy this episode. And maybe we even convinced Joel Kim Booster to give the Simpsons another chance. Find him @ihatejoelkim, and check out his work on "Billy on the Street" and the latest season of Netflix's "Big Mouth."
