Comedic legend Harry Shearer gives Kyle Meredith a call to talk about The Many Moods of Donald Trump, a new album that finds The Simpsons voice talent getting into character as our current president. Shearer discusses how he chose to parody which events, singing about Jared Kushner, the hurricane map, and the Very Stable Genius moment, the motion-capture videos he’s been making, and having members of The Meters and Dumpstafunk help out.

Harry Shearer is one of the most talented and funny people on Earth, and perhaps other worlds given he’s an alien in ‘The Simpsons.’
On this week’s show, over Skype and with wine, Fred sits down with the heralded voice of ‘Ned Flanders’ and ‘Mr. Burns’ and sips wine, while discussing music, the Pandemic and more.

Harry’s list of ‘The Simpsons’ characters include:
Lenny Leonard Otto Mann
Dr. Marvin Monroe
Judge Snyder, among others
