TV & Film November 12, 2021

The Simpsons are still Simpson-ing! Part 2 of The Simpsons Fargo-influenced “Simpflix” crime special, “A Serious Flanders,” will air on November 14. So, if you feel like pre-gaming for the special and want to hear from creatives who have worked on the series over the years, Podsauce has rounded up some Simpsons podcasts.

Random fact: Did you know that Conan O’Brien was a writer for The Simpsons‘ fourth and fifth seasons before leaving to replace David Letterman’s host spot on Late Night? You’ll also hear trivia-filled episodes on our list that unpack the show’s cultural significance.

Grab some donuts and hear from Simpsons‘ creator Matt Groening, learn from cast and crew, and tune in for episode analyses. These Simpsons aficionado hosts could probably tie in a trivia round with Matt. Some of these shows extend coverage into the Simpsons-verse by chatting with folks from Futurama and more.
