Episode 15 – Mikhail Gorbachev and Delilah

It’s a rather hirsute episode this week as we look at the Simpsons episode Simpson and Delilah, which features Homer acquiring a supply of Dimoxinil, growing a full head of hair and gaining a promotion eighties-style. We talk about his assistant Karl and the Simpsons first gay kiss (sort of).

The episode first aired shortly before Mikhail Gorbachev was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, so for the history this week we tell the story of Gorbachev up until 1990, and going over his contributions to world peace.

Listen out for a discussion on a surprising hit for Status Quo!
