Harry Shearer's Podcast "Le Show" Is The Hangover Cure You Need

Let the voice of dozens of Simpsons characters soothe your addled brain.

Posted on

If you choose an old episode, you basically just get to hear Harry Shearer reading old newspapers aloud, alone in a room.

Sometimes you can hear him scrolling with his mouse, clicking browser windows. Audibly shuffling newspapers around in his studio.

Here's a scientific fact: it's plain soothing to hear all the Simpsons voices at once read you months-old news. Because you know how this all ends.

Just like you know what will happen if you agree to karaoke, or follow a hippy to a second location.


Bask and moan! as Shearer's "News of the Warm" washes over you – all the new stories that you forgot to read about global warming.


FOR EXAMPLE: Here's Shearer broadcasting from a hotel room in London two years ago, reading a public apology about an affair with former Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, and a story about formaldehyde in baby shampoo.

No more tears.

And in this one there's a story about how you can use whatever name you like, real or fake, on Google+.

What a relief.

Obviously you can listen to new episodes because they're equally great, BUT their effects on hangovers are disputed by self-appointed BuzzFeed hangover scientists. Find solace in shit that no longer matters.
