On this episode we discuss the episode that gives us our name, The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson. We begin by talking about the claim that the line "jerks in tower one" was regrettable. The conversation touches on many things including how America copes with tragedy and the role of censorship in media. We also take time to analyze the episode's depictions of Homer and Marge. Are Homer's actions in this episode in line with his regular behavior on the show? Does the episode make Marge come off as a small town homebody with no ambition? All that plus diarrhea and homeless people. Enjoy!

After a slightly longer than usual break we are back to discuss politics in The Simpsons. We begin with a quick discussion of Edna Krabappel voiced by Marcia Wallace who sadly passed away recently. Our main discussion is centered around three questions: can a TV cartoon create political change, does the show have a political party bias, and lastly is politics the topic the show is most cynical about. We hope you enjoy the show and look forward to hearing from you.

Food is an ever present theme on The Simpsons so us Jerks  decided to sit down and chat about it. How does the show handle America's obesity and overconsumption? Is food Homer's biggest vice?

On this episode we fight and bite our way through a conversation centered around Itchy and Scratchy. We discuss how The Simpsons have used the show within a show as a vehicle to give their viewers insight into the creative process and of course to poke some fun at themselves. The conversation also covers the careers of Roger Meyers JR and his late father, what Itchy and Scratchy episode is the most disturbing, and a ton of other topics.
