Episode 6 – Moaning Mandela

This week Tom and Garreth talk about Tom’s favourite episode from Series 1 of the Simpsons, “Moaning Lisa”, an episode which deals with important topics such as video boxing and Lisa Simpson going through an existential crisis. It was first aired on the day Nelson Mandela was released from prison, so naturally the history bit is about South Africa and it’s journey from apartheid to democracy.

Note: this episode contains discussions on depression, the ugly racism of apartheid, and a mention of the “It’s coming home” meme.

Keep your ears peeled for a bonus chat at the end of the show!
