I’m back and done explaining about the current state of my mental health. It’s actually doing pretty well, at least the voices tell me so. FYI, if if you aren’t aware I have a dark sense of humor, particularly at my own expense, because I find it hilarious. (If you didn’t catch on, that means I don’t have voices in my head. Unicorns and llamas are another story.)
Give me a round of applause and praise me to the high heavens, because I finished episode 32! Whoopee!
Beat that depression!
This interview is with my fellow writer Mathew Klickstein, who has been on Toon-In Talk before to discuss his book Slimed!: An Oral History of Nickelodeon. In episode 32, Mat has returned to talk about his newest book (at least it was new in 2018 when I recorded the interview) Springfield Confidential.
Mat wrote Springfield Confidential with former lead Simpsons writer Mike Reiss, who also went to Harvard, headed the National Lampoon, and also writes children’s books. Mat and Mikes’ book digs into the history of America’s longest running sitcom The Simpsons and reveals secrets, stories, and humor behind the show.
You’ll notice I didn’t write show notes for episode 32. I’ve never liked writing show notes, so taking Mat’s advice I stopped doing it. All right! I am making myself happier about making my podcast.
