207: D-Girl, with Brandie Posey



Hey everyone! Another week into the Coronavirus quarantine and your boys Matt and Vince have nothing but time to Zoom chat about The Sopranos with all of their friends. Lucky you! This week our guest is comedian Brandie Posey of the podcast Lady 2 Lady. This is the first time she has ever watched an episode of the Sopranos to completion and boy did Matt and Vince pick a perfect one. From season 2, episode 7, “D-Girl,” which originally premiered February 27th, 2000.

This episode isn’t just one of the funniest episodes of The Sopranos so far, it’s incredibly relevant to both Brandie and Matt’s life mired in the drab realities of Hollywood and the entertainment industry. Whom amongst us hasn’t had the fate of our careers decided by a 20-something executive with no creative bone in their body and who name drops constantly? Very relatable.

SYNOPSIS
With Anthony Jr.’s confirmation approaching, Tony and Carmela find their son’s growing apathy a cause for concern. Meanwhile, Christopher’s interest in show biz is reignited when he meets a well-known filmmaker through his cousin’s girlfriend.

BADA B STORIES
-Chris meets Amy Safir, his cousin Gregory’s fiancee
-AJ’s existential buffoonery
-Chris meets Jon Favraeu and llearns what it means to be used by Hollywood
-Big Pussy is forced to wear a wire to AJ’s confirmation

206: The Happy Wanderer, with Sean Keane



Hey everyone, hope you are having a great time locked in quarantine for the foreseeable future. Luckily for you, this means you get to enjoy some more of your favorite Sopranos podcast. This week, we invited Sean Keane (Roundball Rock podcast) to watch season 2, episode 6 “The Happy Wanderer” – which is Tony’s succinct little pet name describing all the obliviously joyful people he wants to murder.

This episode introduces us to David Scatino, the father of Meadow’s friend Eric and a local sporting good store proprietor who went to high school with Tony Soprano. David uses his high school connections with Tony in order to get a seat at the “executive game” where he ends up 45 boxes of ziti in the hole. Meanwhile, Meadow and Eric are rehearsing for cabaret night at their school and Meadow desperately wants to sing a solo rather than a duet.

Other Bada B-stories include:

-Tony is taking JRs executive card game

-Tony learns he had a retarded uncle name Hercules

-Chris cheats the fish market

-Richie gets put in his place by Tony

-Janice is pulling a Livia w Richie

 

It’s a fantastic episode of the Sopranos and an even more fantastic episode of Pod Yourself A Gun.
