Episode 32 – Lisa’s Temporary Provisions Against the Communist Rebellion

We’re looking at easily the best episode of season two, as we tackle Lisa’s Substitute, an episode that sees Dustin Hoffman take on the role of substitute teacher Mr Bergstrom, while Bart runs for class president.

For the history, we go over the conflict between the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of China, otherwise known as Taiwan. Along the way, we’ll visit Qin Shi Huang, go over the drug peddling of the British Empire in the opium wars, and discuss Chairman Mao’s Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution.

Along the way, we discuss “Deep Deep Trouble”, the follow up single to “Do the Bartman”, and reminisce over cult classic comedy Nathan Barley.

It’s an emotional one!
