Episode 158: A Star is Born Again with 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.”
