Episode 9: Mike Reiss by Writers' Bloc Podcast published on 2013/03/04 19:16:20 +0000 Mike Reiss has written for "The Simpsons" since DAY 1 -- 22 years ago! -- and Writers' Bloc is thrilled to have him. Mike and J.R. talk about the show's humble beginnings - from an un-air-conditioned trailer parked on the Fox lot to the longest running primetime show in television history. Mike's endless string of stories and anecdotes about the show make this one of the most entertaining episodes yet. And when you're finished listening, don't forget to buy Mike's 18th & newest kids' book, "Tales of Moronica." It's just 99-cents on Kindle. How do you beat that?
