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!

And just in time for the spooky time of the year, Ben will also discuss his new comic book "Hex Wives" from DC Vertigo, which is available on Halloween.

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."

It's cannon guys … Bart speaks french! This week, we'll welcome Luke McGarry. He's a long time friend of the show, but has never actually been on to talk Simpsons. If you're in Los Angeles you've probably seen his work on billboards – his work has been used for countless concerts put on by Goldenvoice. His illustrations have also be featured in Sports Illustrated, MAD Magazine, Playboy, and he's the guy behind our podcast artwork – which is pretty cool, too! Join us as Bart subconsciously learns to speak French while slaving away abroad as an exchange student.

He'll give us all the details on the new book, which has been in the works for the past 20 years. Plus, he'll tell us about his days as a former Disney artist, and what it was like to be asked to collaborate on Bongo Comics long before The Simpsons became a household name. Keeping with The Beatles theme Bill discusses "Brush with Greatness" with Allie and Julia. You might recall the episode features a cameo from Marge's second true love – Ringo Starr!

A couple weeks ago we discussed a classic Sideshow Bob episode… and this week we're back at it with another terrifying episode featuring Sideshow Bob! Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait joins us to discuss "Sideshow Bob Roberts." In the episode, Sideshow Bob is unveiled as the Republican candidate for the Springfield mayoral election. It's safe to say things will get a little political in this episode. If you're a fan of old school election campaign jingles you're in for a real treat!

This week, we'll welcome someone with a very special culinary contribution to the record-breaking episode – "Forgive and Regret." With this episode The Simpsons officially surpassed "Gunsmoke" as the longest-running scripted American prime time television series. The episode features a very special apple pie recipe from Mona Simpson. In real life the recipe was provided by author, chef, restaurateur, and radio host of KCRW's Good Food – the wonderful Evan Kleiman! She'll give us a behind the scenes look at the pie recipe, and discuss how her recipe made it into this episode. Over the years, she's also had a number of friendships with several producers of the show, and she'll tell us what it's like to cater Simpsons writers poker game nights. Tweet us your favorite Simpsons food moments @simpsonspod and don't forget to tag @evankleiman, too!
