411: Calling All Cars with Netflix’s Johan Miranda



Janice Soprano: Petty Godfather & Spiritual Gangster

Hope you like dream sequences, and therapy scenes, because David Chase managed to wedge two of each into a 47 minute-long episode of The Sopranos. Guest Johan Miranda, a comedian featured in Larry Charles’ Dangerous World of Comedy on Netflix, joins Matt and Vince to talk about season four, episode eleven of The Sopranos, “Calling All Cars.”

Vince, Matt, & Johan point out that this is a pretty sitcom-y episode. Maybe the shorter runtime has something to do with that, maybe it’s AJ Soprano running his tight five about ethnic cuisine at the dinner table, or maybe it’s the scene where Bobby Bacala buries a cake at his wife’s grave. That last one is pretty sad, actually. *Wiping a tear from my eye* No one got to eat that cake.

This is really a Janice episode though. She so badly wants Bobby Sr. to forget about his dead wife long enough to rail her that she catfishes a child on AOL. Listen now and help us decide, is Janice a spiritual Munchausen by proxy-er, a gaslighter, or just a manipulative psycho? Let us know what you think in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

410: The Strong Silent Type, with Rachel Fisher from Hollywood Crime Scene



The straw that broke the dog’s neck.

If you met a stranger at the video store this morning and became friends because they could help you score drugs, throw on this episode of Pod Yourself A Gun for the two hour drive to their dealer’s house. Guest Rachel Fisher from the Hollywood Crime Scene podcast joins Matt and Vince to talk about season four, episode ten of The Sopranos, The Strong, Silent Type. Also known as the one with Chrissy’s intervention.

Based on what Rachel and Matt have to say about their experiences with the banal reality of late stage drug addiction, listening to this episode will be nothing like getting hooked on heroin. It’s fun and sexy and has a parody of Under the Bridge for the Bada B-stories. It’s not just addiction talk, though. They also cover America’s bizarre obsession with the Osbournes, the humiliation of getting beat with a xylophone, and how Furio and Svetlana represent the immigration myths Tony wishes he embodied.

If you think Matt should start a Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute band, tell us in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

409: Whoever Did This, with Mike Falzone from Dynamic Banter!



RIP Pie-O-My

Take a break from studying for your dementia test to listen to the latest Pod Yourself A Gun with comedian and podcaster Mike Falzone from the Welcome To Our Podcast and Dynamic Banter podcasts as well as Final Space on Adult Swim. Mike joins Matt and Vince to talk about the Sopranos season four episode nine, Whoever Did This.

Definitely the only episode of The Sopranos to feature a goat staring directly into camera, it’s also noteworthy for a couple significant deaths – a horse and a jackass (insert rimshot here).

Besides the deaths, there are a couple other close calls. Ralphie’s son Justin takes an arrow to the throat playing Lord of the Rings and ends up in the hospital. If only his father had been more present and taught him how to play Gladiator instead, the kid would not be a vegetable. Is it okay to call someone a vegetable? As Matt points out in the pod, it feels wrong to say, but no one bats an eye.

Junior takes a tumble down the stairs and hits his head pretty hard. He’s responsive but doesn’t seem the same. He’s still got jokes though. Like Mike & Vince mention, old Italian men go to the grave doing bits and stock one-liners.

If you ever want to fake a mental illness to get out of prison, write something unhinged in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts to use as evidence later.

[UNLOCKED] Bonus Bonus: Matt Lieb Hold Music Freestyle at Kaiser



Once again reminding you to join the Patreon in order to get all the bonus PYAG and Frotcast content you so desperately crave. This is a mini-episode I recorded right before last week’s PYAG. Enjoy!


Before our recent episode of PYAG I had a phone call with my doctor regarding a weird thing I have where my feet lose circulation when it’s cold outside. I’m not dying or anything I don’t think, so don’t freak out. But Kaiser loves nothing more than to put me on hold and at some point I just hit record while I did royalty freestyle to the hold music. It was fun and I decided to release it as a mini bonus episode. A full bonus is forthcoming, as well as our new PYAG. For now, please enjoy Kaiser Permanente Hold Music Freesyle.


408: Mergers and Acquisitions, with Brent Flyberg from Pod Yourself A Gun



Green Grove plastics and tell-tale acrylics.

For this very special episode of Pod Yourself A Gun, Matt and Vince are joined by their coolest, handsomest, most shredded guest yet to discuss the Sopranos season four episode eight, Mergers and Acquisitions. Who is this iconic sex-symbol special guest? None other than Los Angeles based comedian from The Reactivaders podcast and producer of PYAG, Brent Flyberg (sono io, stunad).

Sort of ironic to have such a universally beloved figure as guest to talk about this episode of The Sopranos considering how much of the plot centers on Paulie’s mom’s status as a social pariah at the Green Grove retirement center. Take it from me, Nucci, if you want people to like you, put your teeth in, stop crying, and stop snitching.

A highlight so far in season four, the episode also has Tony asking some big questions about human sexuality. What is sex? Is it more than just penisary contact with a vulva? And how raw can your proto-Youtube prankster goomar rub your colleague’s penis with a cheese grater before she is off limits? Find out by listening now. Solid B+ episode with an A++ guest.
