It’s time to get your heart broken and rebuilt piece by piece as we discuss one of the most touching Simpsons episodes ever, “Lisa’s Substitute,” with Daniel O’Brien (@DOB_INC, Cracked, author of “How To Fight Presidents”). We discuss chillin’ on the phone with customer service, wanting desperately to make teachers laugh, how hard it can be to find your place as a kid, and Marge’s subtly savvy parenting. Plus: Dan and Julia freak out our intern!
This episode was produced before “Everything’s Coming Up Simpsons” was on the Max Fun Network.
