Dana Gould! Dana Gould! Dana Gould! Long time stand up comedian, and a prolific television writer joins us for a trip down memory lane. Dana served as co-executive producer for The Simpsons from 2002 to 2008, with an astonishing 145 episode credits according to IMDB –meaning Dana Gould has helped produce nearly 1/5 of the entire Simpsons catalog! He shares some wisdom he's learned along the way during his time in showbiz. Plus, we ask him about one of his most beloved voice acting gigs – a little character named Gex.  This episode was recorded remotely during quarantine. You might notice differing audio quality from previous episodes (this one sounds like a zoom call … because it is!) – but we’re trying to make it work for you! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. 
Simpsons' consulting producer Christine Nangle joins us on the latest episode! Before The Simpsons Christine was a writer for Inside Amy Schumer, Saturday Night Live, Kroll Show, and The President Show – we get into all of it! Plus, we dig into her time studying improv and how it helped her find herself in the world of comedy. She'll also reflect on her childhood and why it took her so long to try to give comedy a try. We get deep everyone …  like therapy session DEEP with this one.  This episode was recorded remotely during quarantine. You might notice differing audio quality from previous episodes (this one sounds like a zoom call … because it is!) – but we’re trying to make it work for you! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. 
We'll welcome back actor, director, writer, producer, Jay Kogen! He's probably best known for his Emmy-award winning work on Frasier, and contributions on Malcolm in the Middle and the  Austin Powers film series. On The Simpsons he wrote some truly classic episodes like "Lisa the Greek," "Homer's Odyssey," "Last Exit to Springfield," and more. He worked on The Simpsons at a time when it was still finding its footing – he co-created characters like Mr. Burns and Edna Krabappel … we get into it!  Plus, we take a look back at the short-lived Nickelodeon show Wendell & Vinnie and why it's one of the things he's most proud of. This episode was recorded remotely during quarantine. You might notice differing audio quality from previous episodes – but we’re trying to make it work for you! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.
