And it is it's not pill battle because, of course, They have been discriminated against and worse for many, many decades, and so she's black herself, and she has made it her mission to try to convince people in her community to take the vaccine. She herself was a participant in one of the trials. I think that during the trial, so Yeah, we'll talk to her about that decision as well. That should be. It's also been really say fast.

"You're listening to good food on KCRW. I'm Evan Kleiman. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue described the Trump administration's efforts as quote fighting for our farmers, Ranchers and rural America unquote. The Joe Biden has been named president elect the agenda of the last four years will have lasting effects on the AG, economy and farming industries. Lisa held reported on how the Trump administration reshaped food and farming for civil eats. Hi, Lisa. Hi, Evan. Okay, so let's start with tariffs Not long after taking office, Trump started a trade war with China, among other countries, which led to impose tariffs. How did this affect the agriculture sector and which part of the AG sector? Sure, So. The biggest impact on that front was that exports of certain agricultural commodities went down significantly, and this mostly affected farmers in the Midwest, primarily who are growing commodities like corn and soy and hog farmers who are exporting hogs to China, for instance. These are very big commodity farms overall there. There are some exceptions, of course. But the reduction and exports essentially hit those farmers economically and In response to that the administration decided to rather than risen the terrorist right away. The essentially decided to make payments to the farmers to make up for the lost income. Okay. First, how much did it affect them in terms of either percentage of business or or money? Let's see. I have one stat between 2017 and 2018. U. S. Exports of agricultural products to China decreased by 63%. So down from 15.8 billion to 5.9 billion. That's very significant and I would say that's just in one year 2017 2018, and that's just to China, and there were terrorists that affected many other countries. On top of that there is this program during the pandemic that was called the Corona Virus Food Assistance Program, and that added additional payments on top of the tariff payments and the typical commodity payments and so It's sort of this domino effect that adds up to a lot more money on Do you know, one number I think is really surprising is that this year, 2020 more than 40% of farm incomes in this country came from federal assistance. Which is pretty shocking. This really shocking let's turn to labor. How has Trump's approach to immigration affected farm labor? Yeah. Terms of verse to immigration has intensely affected labor in the food industry. I mean, farmworkers, restaurant workers. Meatpacking workers are all high proportion of on undocumented immigrants and Within just the first few months of the administration. He began cracking down on undocumented immigrants in this country, and there were increased ice raids at meatpacking plans in restaurants, farm workers and in states like Vermont were stopped. More often, and we sort of we're hearing from advocates and companies around the country that There was just a really, really big uptick in enforcement and, you know workers being detained and in some cases deported. And then the other thing is, you know, there's the H two a guest worker program, which is primarily for farm workers coming in to do seasonal farm work. For on a temporary basis and then going back to their home countries, and the administration has kept that program intact but has essentially been passing a series of rules to lower wages for workers in that system, so Just again. Just this past week actually kind of moved ahead on a rule that would change the way those wages are calculated and would result in farm workers. Essentially across the board being paid less. Yeah. When I read that I was I was like, Wow, you know, especially we here in California. I've seen so many images of farm workers working during the fires. During the winds during the terrible pollution that came Um yeah. So to think that there that the minimum wage for them is now going to be even lower is, um, quite something. With with this decreased focus on regulation. Um and OSHA regulations in particular. How How is it affecting food? Safety? I mean, we're in this era of this pandemic where human health is sort of at the forefront all the while. All of these changes are are still happening. Yeah, I don't. I don't think we're gonna know for a long time. How all of this will affect food safety? I mean the administration. On the food Safety Front has essentially sped up. Some changes that have been proposed in the past or blocked in the past. One in particular, for instance, is sort of privatizing some meat inspections for hogs, so essentially Meatpacking plants are able to do their own inspections rather than having outside inspectors on done. A big one is line speeds, so they threw out the pandemic when Workers were being told T distance. They actually decided to issue waivers to allow poultry plans to continue to speed up processing lines, which was potentially dangerous for workers. But then also in the past has been, you know, seen as a major food safety issue. With the idea that the faster you process chickens, the less likely you're going to be able to catch problems, and I actually just saw right before this interview, the USDA move forward a final rule to raise the limits on Poultry line speeds which had been expected, but they hadn't done yet. They just they just actually presented that rule to the office of Management and Budget so that Signifies. They're probably gonna try to finalize it before the administration is out the door and I don't think many people are aware of the fact that during the pandemic, the FDA actually suspended routine inspections. Of both foreign and domestic food processing facilities, dairy farms, animal feed processors, Then I will say there have been USDA inspectors who have gotten who have contracted covert 19, and it probably was a legitimate safety issue for those inspectors to be going into. Plants and and there's you know, there's some concern there, but I think one of the The concerns from experts and advocacy groups and others who sort of watch the food safety spaces that when the pandemic is over, Like, how long do you suspend those routine inspections? And how long is that kind of exception in place and You know, what are you giving up in the meantime? And then are they going to reinstate them? So that thing you know when things are back to normal, So the other part that has been affected by policy by policies of this administration is the food access and school male part which is all a part of the farm bill..

"Chris retrieves the lunchbox and eagerly opens it up to discover that it's empty heartbreaking and I could have never guessed it. This is where the episode was going to go. Right? And it is such a cool great ending and the family goes into the timber logged diner and left. Let's hear this clip right here. Like my mom used to make. Exactly. Excuse me. How did you get this recipe? It was a miracle actually thirty three years ago. This place wasn't doing well possibly due to our location under a cliff. I went out to contemplate my fate when suddenly like a gift from God, the recipes came. Seen such recipes such brilliant fruit combinations and such beautiful messages on the back. Those messages were for me. Well, then you should have them. Everything tied up in a poem. I love that like meta commentary. I love it when they poke fun at himselves for because they always do that. My favorite I think is if you've seen that up. So DASA boosts when they the Lord of the flies episode and they just wrap it up by like James Jones going, and then the kids got off the island by MO, let's say, you know, I like it when they poke fun of themselves. Same here, but also is just cute because an addition to doing that, Lisa had even said, real-life, you don't have that stuff happened. So for it to happen makes it even cuter, but I really love this woman character as well. Yeah. 'cause she, I love her saying just like it could have been because we're placed under a cliff, go here, but it's such a special place in it really makes a whole like such a movie vibe, like into such. It feels like a very special episode. Yeah, and the way that they animate all of the recipes falling down, it feels like something some movie reference. Maybe I'm missing and you're seeing all the messages. All the messages to say flutter down here. It's it's crate. Everything about this episode feels like it's got a little extra to it in that and that heart kind of coming through. Thanks for, you know, picking this episode and contributing to this episode and you know, guiding us through it been really great and I wanna. Thank James Brooks. Yeah, who apparently was the one who wanted to make contact with me. The recipe that is the coolest thing in the world seems like a really nice guy. I'm gonna ask him to participate in our pike contests next year. Rates that so much. So you talked a little bit about how of all the characters you know that there is at least some connection to Homer, but would you say that there's there any other characters that you connect to the most on the show that you identify as well? I think the brilliance of the Simpsons is like you connect with all of them because they each part of a human personality. I was in the restaurant business. I really connected to mow. Yeah. Yeah, grumpy days. And you just really wish you could just be like, no, you might let it all hang out. I loved him. That's funny though. Change your life chapters? I think that's right. You know, because we're ever evolving. Absolutely. And I think that I do have a tendency to be super nerdy and super like reading oriented. So there is a part of me that's very Lisa. I think all the best of us have some, Lisa in a, yeah, whether we want to or not. We always says she's got a little bit more in her though. I've got some rebellious Bartman. I a lot of Lisa to we. Yeah, it's multifaceted. But do you also have a favorite episode that comes to mind that side of this one? It'd be impossible to top this. I love. I love the one where March becomes a food critic. She starts a blog. Yes. Theme. Oh funny. She's so fearful and they go to the European restaurant and just through just dumb luck. She becomes known for being an adventurous eater, and of course it's kind of all set up by the culture that was created by my friend, Jonathan. So yeah, yeah, love that. There's also obviously the March Marge's pretzel the, that's a wagon, the world with Marge Simpson. Yeah. See, all this is done is made me wanna go through find some key about food in the Simpsons and then just go power through them all. There's a really great Simpsons themed food blog called eats like a duck..

"I don't normally use this word, but I'm just going to say it coot. What is that? An old coot. So it's not even because it kind of sounds like a very bad word. No, it's it's like what you call like an old guy that just you have no respect for. I guess I haven't heard it without the word old in front of it. So that might be what it is. Yeah, it's funny that Lisa uses that and it's like even when she is the most irate, she can't really say anything like to outside of character. That's really sweet old biddy. Oh, I'll be mad if some comedy that so homers things is song of hate, and we then go to. They all decide that they're going to yell at him together at the at the home, and so they're all walking in there all kind of blowing off some steam. I like that Bart is saying like, oh, he was always calling me buddy. Yeah. Finding things to be mad about Lisa reminds him that, you know, he's hard of hearing, so they have to yell the thing. They finally go in there and they realize that he hasn't touched his lunch or his lunch pills, very fun to Spencer. Hilarious dispenser like a serial dispenser, but for pills I want that. Absolutely. And then we get, we noticed that there's a letter from grandpa and it starts, you know, like to my loving family, which marched scoffs at and and we get this letter that says, you know that he, he made a mistake and it is something that he shouldn't have done, and that he regrets that he, you know, kind of revealed this burden because it doesn't change. The past only makes people feel worse. And maybe he should've just kept his mouth shut. And that is kind of that debate and I don't. I don't know that you could say that it's absolutely yes, absolutely. No, I think it really does depend on the person, but but I kind of agree with it here in and I like that he's choosing actions instead of words, and he's actually going to go and try and track these recipes down which in his his old age is very scary and could lead to his death. So it's quite the gesture and we, we. Have the family go back to that cliff, which is I soon that area is also called timber logged, but that might have just been what the Diners Club, but they go to Springfield mountain and you know they're terrified that he is going to be dead, right? Right. Like really serious and if you wanna walk us through kind of what happens in in this mountain scene, please do. Yeah. So they go to the mounted and they see that you know that there's some rope tied to one of the rocks and they see that Abe is down there. And so Homer decides to tie rope around himself and then go and scale down the mountain. And then there's like a fun bit of like, what did you tie your roof? Because he goes to meet a down there and they realize that they've kind of fucked it up and are kind of tied together. And so many ways in many ways of now, they're kind of precariously dangling off this cliff, and we see, oh Homer. Sees a lunchbox that's somehow. By time in some ways, just hanging out there, not unrealistic at all. So Abe kind of makes the hero move and decides to help Homer and made me cry. I got really emotional that Abe was willing to cut himself free sucrose himself. He really was he. He was going to risk his life for Homer and like that's what a really good parent would do. And it's kind of leading really special to see him do that because he hasn't been that parent to Homer before, and we get that really sweet moment if you wanna walk us through because it's so emotional and when he cuts himself free on the rope, he starts to fall..

"I mean, I don't love it because it's mean to one of our central characters, but I feel like it is a very realistic take of the generational divide between Abe and Homer and how they parent and how Abe is just like standoffish in a way that felt socially acceptable of his time in like, you know, children should be seen and not heard kind of way. And he basically like handsome off to his mum Tae take this right. This monster out of here. It's actually also interesting that you said ADD because so often I think before we ever looked at used that lens to to look at children and adults. It was kind of like we were blaming kids for their personality in a way that was very purposeful. This idea that Homer would be doing all these things just to be difficult when it's like you have no idea like very likely. He couldn't help it like he also he's a child and so it makes it. That much sweeter when he and Mona have this moment where she's making these pies and it seems really special things. And there's a little pie song which is so durable that we, we have to listen to it. So cute. Be dead. It was also tasty. Then. To rule bucks. If we had the chance to bake it on again, tell me, would we. We love you. Loved me, preach piracy, made she wrote down the recipe input a special note to me end up back. Don't know what life will bring. So on your birthday or any day you needed, you'll know that your mother loved you and have reasons to love yourself. You taught me food is love. Like myself. Lunchbox was the most valuable possession I ever had. She left. So recipes were all I had left of her and that's the end, what is we story? And there's some things that shouldn't be gone into until a man is dead and can't be kicked my gosh. So sad. All crying. Told straight on. I know. Yeah, in the style of the song is, you know, very like, classic. I don't even know like composer Cole eligible element to it. Yeah. Like Rogers and Hammerstein kind of it really is so special to have Homer as you said, approach it straight on and with so much sincerity, there's no masking it. There's no downplaying it and be just as so sad. This thing that was so special is not there and that he could have read them. And as as we have the Barton Leeson Marge all, take, you know his side. You never know what person could have been. And right. It's hard because Homer for all of his faults is a very good person. He's very sweet and loving any loves his kids. Even if sometimes the only members there are two of them. He at the very least is better than than his dad was. And that's kind of all you can try to do. So often, my mom will say of her dad while he was the first person stop a cycle of much worse behavior and it's always like you just trying to pass it down down down, makes you know that Leeson Bart, should they ever have kids, we'll be much better parents even than was, but it's just such a sweet thing and it's that that line you already touched on of like, you know, I like myself having confidence that such a huge part of life and and you know, finding it as an adult is just as important, but it is. So you know, it's it's sad to think about a sweet little Homer than getting kind of knocked around and bullied and they just capture it so well in this, it's amazing in such a short little song. They were able to tell you what a, what, an important story. This was right. It breaks my heart just breaks my heart and, and also in my own mind, I always. His thought that was dough. But we get confirmation cannon. Now. Yeah. Well, we've talked about a lot in this epoch. There's, you know, such an easy compulsion to make a joke, especially in a comedy program. So I feel like it is kind of a risky move to tell it so straight, and I'm really happy that they did, you know, because we're all emotional in the studio right now. Just thinking about it. It's a cartoon that's made us feel things. We have this relationship, this thirty year relationship with this man and took lightly get that story and and what really struck me about it too was the way Mon is portrayed..

"Hippodrome don't come back. Heard Ray Charles, actually my jukebox, we can't afford no Ray Charles. It's a white guy named Charles Ray excellent vision, excellent vision. Excellent visit. Yeah, that was improvised in the booth. Oh, definitely. And the love tester machine says dead to me. Ouch. That's a brutal mean thing to have come up when you're trying to figure out how sexy you are. Yeah, it's very clearly weighing on both of them. And basically the family is trying to figure out a way to kind of. Yeah. Get them right, at least it right, you know. And so we get a very twenty eighteen thing of them going to an escape room. Have you guys been to escape room? No, I don't think I ever will. Yeah, but it was so funny there's remark about going to that. They're, they're going to this escape room game place. The place where dead malls go to die. Right. Yeah, it feels like to me, I can see the appeal of it, but it's as so expensive. What is like seventy dollars per person every time you go or so the average? Yeah, the trim, goodness. I don't know. I don't like that kind of like competition and then time crunch, like I would be terrible on the amazing race. I would just be like, can't we just enjoy this sunset, your we running? Yeah, Pissy. That's me at my worst as me on a deadline. Yeah, trapped? Yeah, a room. And you kick it out to they let you out. I don't like people pulling pranks. I mean, it just feels like a prank place and there's a very big, awful lethal prank that that Abe pulls on Homer right when they go into this dungeon room where they immediately put like the dungeon helmet, I guess the right word for that to cover up his mouth. Abe tells Homer and very convincing tone like, hey, if you put that sword in that little area over there might unlock a secret like bookcase or something. Little plug outlet, any electrocute himself. He could have killed a son. I don't think that would make him feel very good at all. But as we've learned, he's pretty, he's pretty vengeful dude at times the fact that he went to such great lengths to do this to these recipes, you know, but we don't yet, but it's kind of. He had some anger. He had some old school anger. I like the moment that we cut to marginalise outside watching them just like, come on there, just sitting there and then March. I bet they'd hurt if they knew we had balloon. Specific. I know. I know I just love March is whenever they come. I just love her like simple way of looking at life and being upbeat. Absolutely. We have this little moment where we know that Lisa hates conflict and is giving advice to leave her body at which point Bart slap, sir. Is that correct? The brother thing to do. He decides to take advantage of her, not being in the body, say, could abuse it. That's an interesting. I wonder if that is how that works in terms of consensus, right? We should say she immediately goes right back into her body. So yes, it's a girl, Pat. Power. So then we get a little flashback to a little bit more of their relationship. There have been many flashbacks of Homer as a kid and a being rather neglectful he for the most part is not really been there. And Homer has kind of been an an oath at times, you know, like during the moon landing like couldn't really be bothered. He was a little busy, but there is clearly a lot of love there, but it's a very, it's a very tension filled relationship. And in this we see an learn a little bit more backstory to because we really learn a lot about these characters that he works at a model airplane company, and that building model airplanes is the only hobby that get his mind off work. I think it's such a good show fun. And we see Homer just torturing him with ADD looking the decals and I love that we the enemy that the decals felt very real and how they were just kind of everywhere. And. Also how they illustrate..

And we after this have grandpa and the whole family in the car driving over Grandpa's being typical grandpa kind of just wedding his mouth a little bit too much about rice pudding in cinnamon still related. It's still food. That's very funny. And Homer raises up a partition which millennials will know from the beyond, say song and others will know from real life existence and Pretty Woman. From being in in limousines. You can separate yourself from the driver. That's a fun little gag that comes back later for some reason. There's certain moments in recent episodes of the Simpsons where just having fun and this is I think a case of that and I like it. It's fun. Yeah. And who doesn't want to partition just kind of wherever I like that. It's like muting key words on Twitter in real life. So there at the derby in Homer has he could not be more excited to watch his old car get used in such a scary, awful, lay and as the car rock Obama about to get into the fight, I guess fight is not the right word, but let's say that'll.

He truly must go to Ospel tries to shake it off and he he does the right thing, which is also a relief. Yeah. I mean, because at the beginning is is dead goes, my chest is numb. With pride. Really great runner just hurts. That's called pride. That's that's called pride. Finally has to go to the hospital. I wanna just do a quick shout out for a really funny joke. That was like a fun little cut away. We have fan favorite character. Cletus slack jawed Yokel with his like twenty seven kids and he's standing in front of them. And he goes, you know, that movie cars that you like, well, all your favorite characters are gonna commit suicide today. Very funny. I thought that was great. I like how sad they are about it too. Like, why would you tell them that? I also, I also have to say, I liked when Bart asses, dad. If a brain comes flying out into the stands, could he keep it? Oh yeah. That was really funny.

So just check out Twitter. Oh, yeah. Check our Twitter. We've got a live show in Austin, Texas, coming up. It's going to be super fun, but now let's get back to the episode where I so Juliet. Can you help us out for those seen the show in a while. All right. For those that haven't seen the show in a while we like to read the synopsis from Wikipedia ice cold and this is the first time this is ever happened. There is none. No. So it just says, as of this episode Simpsons surpassed gunsmoke to become the longest running scripted American primetime television series by number of episodes does vent was marked in the opening sequence by gunfight between Maggie and Marshall met Dylan? Yes. And then it's about a lot of other things. Got it. Well, normally the Kapito will. Explain to us either pretty poorly or even worse. The episode description has we've we've kind of talked about a little bit, but would you be able to give a just a brief synopsis of what happens in this episode for our listeners haven't seen it. What's interesting to me about this episode is that doesn't have that many plotlines doesn't it's pretty much all about the relationship between Homer new stat and his dad feeling the need to confess this terrible thing that he did that he's he's on his deathbed one more time. Yeah. Once more with feeling. And. And he needs to tell Homer something, and so he are, we going to reveal what he says now, let's do it. We could. Yeah. So he reveals to Homer that he took the lunchbox full lunchbox full of recipes that his mother had lovingly written with all of her pies and on the other side, all these little exhortations to her little boo. And he threw it off a cliff along with many other possessions when she left because he didn't want to be reminded of her. Yeah. And it's an interesting plotline because the whole family kind of like Homer says, we've come together in anger were hating all together. There Haining together on grandpa, and so they go through this whole process of being really, really angry and which of course makes grandpa get up out of the deathbed and go to the cliff to look for the lunch box. You know hearing it described it sure is a drama, like one hundred percent. Just fascinating episode and it's amazing that they could pass gunsmoke in number of roads and and how long they've been on the air and still beginning to what is kind of much like your recipes. Something quite simple. Like it's just a story about how this mother character kind of could have had a larger impact, and it's something that is truly not gimmicky. There's nothing. You know, it's not too many spices. Just kind of this, this simple episode and it's amazing that they are able to come up with something like that and still have it be meaningful and made meets tear up. It was such a sweet episode so far down the line. I mean for me it was sort of shocking that there was no pie in the face. I was not in the bar. Yeah, and that there was such righteous outrage on the part of the children right that their dad could have. Been a different person if he had been able to interact with those recipes throughout his life, it's giving me goosebumps as we speak. And then of course, there's the the, the car derby, yes, that doesn't relate at all main stories. Simpson's left to do that at the very beginning. And so let's actually kick off from where the episode starts, which is even more left fields, which of course you've already into that this parody of gunsmoke which I have to say when I was first looking at it. What when the first time I watched the episode I was like, what? What is this?.

"But then you have that James l. Brooks heartbeat of like the daddy daughter relationships, the sibling relationships, the family, you know their marriage and that always feels earned. There's so many smart people that are working on this show, many smart people. I mean, the the, my other connection to the show is I got to be friends with the producer, Richard sokai, and traveled with him in Italy, and and later on cooked for him often at the house during nights that the writers come to play poker, how did they have a standard poker game? And so I came quite a few of those. It was just incredible to like be a fly on the wall. They kept trying to get me to play poker, but I'm not now let me just serve you. Love that and listen in. Yeah, so they must have eaten a fair amount of my pie before this idea happy. It was in the water going back to the poker games, any takeaways, any you know who cheat it? Who cheated? What are the top secrets that they would? I don't think they need to cheat because you know a lot of them are like math hats over s course Bill Odenkirk who wrote this episode. I just learned has a PHD in math from inorganic biology something from some extremely prestigious school. I'm just a mad that people can be so smart. What a little bit more about this pipe before we go into the. Why did you choose this particular apple pie recipe? They asked me for an apple pie and I was immediately concerned by the lane of pie recipes, right? Because you have the dough, which ingredients, and then you have the directions and then you have the filling and then you have to bring it all together. So piracy's tend to be really long. So I had to ask, you know, how much do I dumb it down, right? How much they told me it was going to fit on a recipe card and I knew that they were going to be drying it so there some leeway there, but I chose an apple pie because the language in it has a lot of shortcuts. You don't have to explain every single thing. And in fact, there's a glitch in the recipe because the part up above that has the ingredients. The butter is not in there is in the actual. Text of what to do the directions. And it's so funny because the day the show dropped and you know the kind of food world blew up and this recipe, everybody, you know that the better isn't. Like you would forget to put butter in pot, the rest of the police force, Stephan Easter egg. Yeah, that's wonderful. And then do you have anything about this apple pie in your own real world recipe that makes it specialties or anything that the simplicity of it? I tend to not like like us, elder flower water. Or use a ton of different kinds of spices. I kind of liked to keep things really plane. Yes, so that they are what they are, but watching this episode really made me wanna go into Mona's mind and figure out what some of her combinations were because later on in the episode, the referred to. Yeah, but we will probably get into that. Let's jump to end before we do. Let's take a quick break and we'll be right back. Listen, we already know that you love John, removes them, craftsman female filmmakers. So if you love all those things, then by transit of property, you love my podcast switchblade sisters.

"We drink very responsibly. Always hydrate. Everybody gives them water, but we talk about how the Simpsons for so many of us is something that makes it easier for us to make friends. And I think that we're constantly always trying to find the little things that are going to make it easier to connect. And it is funny that of course, the character who is social has the largest connection to food. I bet that's not a surprise at all because there is something so communal. I mean growers. Table like, and it is, I think we'll have to go through either on Twitter or maybe an on different conversation. Just all the best food moments at the Simpsons because like you said, there are many, but do you have a favorite outside of this one that comes to mind the eggs have always fascinated me the exit most? Yes, yeah. Oh, you run in this are in it fantastic way, but I just feel like they're separate character. Yeah, you're right. Yeah. Oh, man. I would love to see a super cut of like how they've changed over time or in what ways that they're us. You know, throwing someone do that. And when the writers go out to a bar to they ever eat them. You would think that with that knowledge they would not, right? Yeah. I e also saying how food helps paint the character little bit better and you could see that most obviously in Lisa, the vegetarian who food is it becomes a a moral platform for her, and it becomes political which we've also decided that we shan't talk too much about politics can help you like that's a funny thing to like thanksgiving is food Centric and politics Centric. They're fighting almost shouldn't exist together, but like the fact that we even know what the president eats in how we judge him for that. Like it's something that if you chose to have a whole podcast about, I think people would lose their minds. Yeah, just the types of food that characters eat, I think is fascinating. You know, there's this marvelous podcasts called the sport full. I've heard of it that is hosted by Dan passion and he just did a Simpsons. Yeah, he just did a Simpson's episode where he talked to. The guys. Oh writers? Yeah, he went and talked to them about food in the Simpsons listen to it yet, but I can't wait how we hassles into that listening. Shut out Schmidt. I'm coming for you. He skips me constantly. So in Meyer that comes up with these ideas? Yeah, yeah. And it's going to have that kind of healthy creative competition because it keeps you kind of at the edge and just really quickly before we actually go through the episode and talk about our favorite moments and listen to some clips I was reading in, I believe it was just interview that you gave about, you know, this episode. So I, I read that you were already a fan of the Simpsons going back to even the eighties when when Matt grinning had some type of art exhibit. So that is before the Simpsons before even I think that would have been like life of hell era. Can you? Can you speak about that? What your experience was? Actually, it's interesting because I ran into Matt at Jonathan gold's the wake. We can't kind of after the the memorial service for him, the private one. And I asked, Matt, I said, gee, I remember that art exhibit that you did in the beauty salon of my restaurant, like in nineteen eighty five. And he's like, oh, yeah, definitely. And it. He was just. Just coming up and he was selling art. I mean, it was selling, you know. Pieces and and then before we all knew it, the Simpsons was happening and. I mean, the Simpsons is just the perfect animated series. What would cause you? Because it's everything. It's rollicking. It's rollicking fun. And so political and dark and whole areas. You know, it's fun because being asked to come on the show, made me sort of rebound with it again. I love that. Yeah. Yeah. We always say that like the Simpsons. I mean, the reason why it is the perfect TV show. I'm just going to say a beyond animated. It's because it has so many different levels to it. Right. So it's operating from, you know, like the absurd levels of those cut-away jokes. It's also operating in like this very cartoony, let sent home or to space kind of thing..

"It could very, very easily been like they go to the fair and Marge decides to make by and they want us make a real one. I can't imagine how that felt to see the emotional heaviness. It would have. It's unbelievable for me. It's like so perfect because it's sort of what I've devoted my life to this idea that like food is a prism that holds all these different parts of life. And a lot of them are difficult and and hard to deal with and Mark us and make us play out our own eating history. And I mean, homers like the poster child, the back story. I mean, there's that one moment where he turns to his mom and he said. You said, I love myself and it's as he stuffing phase. Stays with a piece of pie. It's just so adorable is and the fact that she writes these notes to him on the back of the recipe cards. 'cause she must know she's going to leave. Yeah, it feels like she's like setting setting up a little recipe card slash emotional index for him to access whenever he needs to. I love that so much time could cry to specify if you're driving and maybe some sounds made it hard to hear. She said, food is a prism, not a prison. Because for some of us is a prison. Suppressive podcast, I'll tell you that that is a prism. It is. Rain. So you know, I know that you talk so much. I'm sure about things that are not just since related. So to ask you about how you got into your career might be boring, but if you wouldn't mind just telling us a little bit about how you got into this, we'd love to hear it. Which part, I guess whichever part you think is the most fun to tell because there's so much that you could share. Some of our listeners might not know as much about things that aren't the Simpsons as other humans. So we try to culture them from time to time. So I call myself going business card. It says I'm a culinary multitasker and love that elevate. And I think it's because I've, I've always like worn a lot of hats, but the through line of my life since childhood Mench like Homer has been food and much like Homer. Well, no, I think homers a pretty social guy. He's pretty. Comfortable in a group. But for me, I was not very comfortable. I'm sitting down talking to people that dinner table didn't know. So I, I learned very young that if you serve people and if you make food, you can participate in what goes on, but you get to be on the edges. Yes. And you can sort of just come in with the comments kind of like Twitter, but in the fifties. Twitter of fifties. And so I- food sort of became my solace and became a way of me expressing myself. Yeah. And then it became over time an intellectual endeavor. Even though I didn't fully commit to it as a career until after I finished college and a graduate degree and threw that all away to become a slave and the restaurant business. What was your degree in. Painful to bring up actually pretty hysterical to me because I got an NBA at UCLA. The business school there, and my specialty was in arts management, which was a nonprofit business degree, which I later after one restaurant after another of mine failed. I would refer to while I had.

"Hi, I'm Ali Gert, Julia, Prescott, and everything's coming up Simpson's. Sodas brought to you by the timber logged Tyner talk more about that in a little bit. We're also brought to you by the Springfield, demolition derby, hell, yeah. Hell yeah, we are of course here to talk about the episode forgive and regret. It is the eighteenth episode of the twenty ninth season. How of the Simpsons it was this episode that officially surpassed gunsmoke to become the longest running scripted primetime television series. That's insane. That's so crazy. Of the Simpsons, but it's also insane of gunsmoke too. So long. Why? How. How. Under the radar. What do you think the golden years of gun smoke? Oh, I think about them all the time. Thanks for asking. I think that they are evergreen always relevant better than the left. One anyway, each fine wine is better than the last one. Yes, I understand that phrase originally aired on April twenty. Ninth of twenty eighteen baby. That's so cool. I know it was written by Bill Odenkirk and the show at the time and the show runner now is Al Jean. We love algae Al. Hello, Al also directed by rob Oliver. I'm so excited to talk about this episode today. Me too, and we found the perfect guest for it, but truly the only person who should talk about this episode. Yeah, you know her from KCRW's good food. She is an author, chef restaurant tour and radio host. Please welcome. Evan Kleiman hill ladies. We are super excited. Talk about this episode with you because it obviously is very special to you. Normally when we ask our guests to pick and episode, they don't have such a personal connection. So this is going to be really fun. I think we should get right. Into the episode choice in y, you chose it. I a lot of people already know the connection because it is a pretty huge part of this episode and it's very special in tender in. Great. And you're now part of Simpson's history, but can you walk us through your episode pick and and why you're connected to? Well, first of all, I mean, just say, I've, I've always been so intrigued by the amount of food that's woven through Simpson's sets. It's and used in hilarious and strange ways to advance action and express emotion. So when I got a. An Email asking me if I wanted to provide a pie recipe that would be like an Easter egg within an episode. I really thought is being punked. I had emailed you. It was Mr Simpson at the Simpsons dot com. And it was, you know, it was part of staff yet, and I was like, are you kidding? Is this for real? You have to prove yourself to me that it's like an actual Simpson's thing. And and then when they told me what the story was going to be, and they sent me the pages. I mean, it was just like dream because so much of the backstory of Homer if something we've all wanted to more about and so emotional and this these images of Mona Simpson are so fleeting and rare lately that to be able to contribute in any way to that was just fantastic and hilarious and wonderful. You are part of the history of the most famous character of all time. So cool. What Homer Simpson or Mona, maybe one into each other. They're baked into each other. Beautiful. Hello. So this. For those who don't know this episode features a pie recipe. And as we touched on it is something that Homer's mom, Mona, who you will remember from an episode mother. Simpson back in the Bill Oakley, Josh Weinstein days they have they. They show us that this is a huge part of Homer's life and could have even changed him. So he wouldn't be who he is the way that we know now it's a very interesting thing because as you said, it's such a touching amazing use of this recipe. It could have very easily been like a pie contest..
