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!

This week, Scott Gairdner (Podcast: The Ride, Moonbeam City) joins us in the studio to talk about Two Bad Neighbors. In 1992, President George Bush famously gave a campaign speech declaring he wanted to have American families be “a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons.” This episode, which aired in 1996, was inspired by the animosity towards the show by the Bushes. Of course, the episode paints Bart as "bad little boy," and makes us considers what made "The Simpsons" so dangerous to children … this is meta-humor gold right here. Plus, Scott tells us how the theme parks from Springfield rank, and why he's obsessed with Simpsons dvd commentaries. Why don’t you come over and listen to this podcast, and we’ll have nachos? And then some beer.
