403: Christopher, with Will Menaker From Chapo Trap House



In this house, we believe Columbus was a hero.

Put down your stinky cheeses and your cold wines, it’s time to talk about season 4 episode 3 of the Sopranos, Christopher, with Will Menaker from the Chapo Trap House podcast. Will joins Matt and Vince from Clinton Hill Brooklyn, home to Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. But on this podcast, the only Christopher we acknowledge is Moltisanti.

Written by Michael Imperioli, the actor who plays Chrissy, the episode is divisive even among Sopranos super fans due to its focus on identity politics and a ripped-from-the-headlines plot. Originally written for Paulie, the story focuses on Sylvio’s desire to see that Columbus, and by extension all hard working Italian-Americans hanging around pork stores, get the respect they deserve.

The woke mob came for Columbus, and all he did was cause enough pain and suffering to be disavowed by the psychos responsible for the Spanish Inquisition. The PC police are sure to come for Matt and Vince soon, so listen to this episode while you still can.

When you get back from the Columbus day protest counter-protest, give us a five star review on Apple Podcasts.

UPDATE and TEASER: Sex and the City and 9/11



Hey all, as you probably noticed there was no new episode of Pod Yourself A Gun this week. But don’t worry, there will be new episodes next week and I promise they will be worth the wait. In the meantime, here’s a teaser of this week’s Patreon episode of the Frotcast. Please subscribe to the Frotcast Patreon and tell your friends to subscribe as well.

DESCRIPTION:

Time for your weekly feeding and this time we got more than enough content to keep you fat and happy. This week Jessica Sele joins Matt and Vince to talk about Joe Rogan, the Reply All apology fiasco, Nomadland, and how Sex and the City is the weirdest television show ever made. They literally just don’t mention that 9/11 happened. Also, Vince gives us a Steven Seagal update. Enjoy!


402: No Show, with Amelia Cady



How’s it gonna be when Stephen Jenkins sues this podcast?
I hope you liked last week’s parody songs and Third Eye Blind frontman anecdotes, because the newest episode of Pod Yourself A Gun has more of both. Amelia Cady joins Matt & Vince to talk about The Sopranos Season four episode two, No Show.
Listen to the podcast to hear Amelia describe Matt on Heroin, Stephen Jenkins prancing away from an argument, and how Tony Soprano’s raw animal magnetism drives her desire to exhume Gandolfini’s body so she can doo doo doo, doo doo-doo do him.
Some other topics covered are Meadow Soprano’s gap year ambitions, Carmela’s sick Mary Higgins Clark related burn, a gay mafioso named Don Purple, Young Vince’s encounter with Anthony Kiedis, and how Matt was just a little too poor to join the fingering cult. Even in their reductionism, Amelia, Matt, and Vince have quite interesting things to say about death and loss.
Just getting what you want is for babies. We want five star reviews on Apple Podcasts. If you’re an adult you can do that for us.

FROTCAST TEASER: Woody Allen Keeps Not Being Cancelled

401: For All Debts Public and Private with Max Collins of Eve 6



It’s no longer the nineties on the latest Pod Yourself a Gun.

Matt and Vince are joined by Max Collins of Eve 6 and the @eve6 twitter account, to discuss the first episode of Season 4 of the Sopranos, For All Debts Public and Private.

Before getting into the episode, Max and Matt swap stories about their run-ins with Third Eye Blind frontman, and possibly world’s most confident man, Stephen Jenkins. The consensus is Jenkins is abrasive, but mostly a good hang. You could say people are semi-charmed by him.

This is the first post 9/11 Sopranos, meaning we have officially left the nineties, so please pause here for a moment of silence to remember Matt’s mashup of Butterfly by Crazytown and Meadow Soprano saying “it’s the nineties.”

Thank you for respecting the moment of silence. We’re sad to see it go, but the good lord taketh and giveth because we lost that song, but we get a new song on today’s episode that is the early frontrunner for PYAG season 4’s song of the season award. Season 3’s went to Bread Pies, of course.

Give it a listen, and hey, don’t worry about us. We’re just chipping. We’ve got it under control, but if you want to help us out, leave us a five star review on Apple Podcasts. That will help us get straight.

And feel free to purchase merch to help support our under control habit here at Teespring.
