Joshua "Josh" Weinstein (born May 5, 1966) is an American television producer and writer, best known for his work on The Simpsons. Along with his writing partner Bill Oakley, Weinstein was Executive Producer for two seasons of The Simpsons. Together, the two wrote such episodes as "Who Shot Mr. Burns?", "Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy", and "Sideshow Bob Roberts". He won three Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award. He also voiced characters in three episodes, although went uncredited. After leaving The Simpsons, Weinstein and Oakley created Mission Hill and The Mullets.
Like many Simpsons writers, his name has been used in the show's dialogue. Principal Skinner once told an angry Superintendent Chalmers that "I know Weinstein's parents were upset, but it sounded so made-up. I mean, Yom Kippur...."
Weinstein attended Stanford University, where he was editor of the Stanford Chaparral.
