510: Cold Cuts, with Jay Light of Blockbusting



It’s Just One of Those Pods

On the latest edition of Pod Yourself A Gun, comedian, Good Guy with a Gun, and host of the Blockbusting podcast, Jay Light joins Matt & Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five episode eleven, “Cold Cuts.”

As Matt points out, despite AJ’s absence from it, this is a real AJ of an episode of The Sopranos. It’s like everyone in the episode feels like it’s just one of those days where you don’t want to wake up, everything’s f*cked, and everybody sucks. Sort of the Nu Metal episode. Which makes sense as the gang agrees it’s one of the worst episodes of the series (Low B+).

Matt addresses some of the complaints from the mailbag episode about the autotune, and this week’s Bada-B stories are pure Lieb vocals. Let that be a lesson to all of you – if you pay us enough money, we will do what you ask, but you gotta give us that scharole.

There’s also an argument in there about whether or not Christopher really thinks he could be a male model. Let us know what you think in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts

509: Unidentified Black Males, with Miles Gray of The Daily Zeitgeist



There Was No Abundant Intentionality In Making The Pod

Miles Gray from The Daily Zeitgeist and 420 Day Fiance joins Matt & Vince to break down The Sopranos season five episode nine, “Unidentified Black Males.”

A lot happens in the episode. Finn learns too much about what his new construction site friends are really like, Tony Deals with the fallout from Tony B.’s extracurricular activities, Carmella asks for a divorce, and everyone somehow finds a way to pin the blame on some black guys. The episode is probably best remembered as the one where Vito is topping off a security guard in his car, but every storyline has at least one surprise, a laugh-out-loud joke, and some stellar performances.

The stress of holding on to Vito’s makes Finn think about leaving town, igniting a fight with Meadow that Matt, Vince, and Miles agree is too relatable. The ones  where you’ve fought your way to the logical conclusion of a relationship, but you’re too young to know you can just be alone and be fine, so you double down on commitment like Finn’s hasty proposal that seems more motivated by the idea of going to bed than love. If you’re reading this, you and your boo are in college, and it’s not working, just break up. It will be fine. If you feel sad, listen to this week’s Bada-B story song.

[TEASER] Early Access to 511 “The Test Dream” w Felix Biederman of Chapo Trap House



Hey all,

Since there was no Frotcast this week, I figured I’d just release this banked episode of Pod Yourself A Gun a few weeks early for the Patreon. We had Chapo Trap House’s Felix Biederman back on the pod to discuss one of the most controversial episodes of the Sopranos “The Test Dream.” Many hate the Test Dream, but Felix loves it and specifically requested it. We had a great time talking about it.

You should join the Patreon and listen to the full episode.


Pod Yourself Another Mailbag – Season 5 edition (Part 1)



It’s here. The moment you’ve all been waiting for. No, not a review of The Many Saints of Newark though that is something to look forward to… no I’m talking about the SEASON 5 MAILBAG EPISODE!

Matt and Vince and guest/producer Brent Flyberg compiled a seasons worth of your questions, comments and concerns – and as many voicemails as we could possibly listen to – and tried to get through every one. Obviously we could play every voicemail because some of you have terrible reception, but we played most of them and we read a ton of your emails.

As always, part 2 of the mailbag episode is available on Patreon! So become a patron right away and listen to both parts plus all of the other legendary Frotcast and PYAG content.


508: Marco Polo, with the Amazing Allie Goertz



At the Sauseech Swinging Party Down the Line

On the latest Pod Yourself A Gun, TV writer, musician, Simpsons expert and former MAD magazine editor Allie Goertz joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos most dudes rockingest episode yet, season four episode eight, “Marco Polo.”

Tony the party host is off-color joking and sauseech swinging to celebrate Hugh DeAngelis’s 75th birthday, even if Mary DeAngelis and former assistant to the Ambassador to the Vatican Dr Russ Fegoli are too sophisticated to appreciate it. As pointed out on the podcast, Tony and the crew are mobsters but they are also boring suburbanites who care about kitchen appliances and making a good impression on their in-laws’ stuffy friends. Ordinary fangul people, Madonn’!

Allie reveals that she was inspired by some of Tony’s therapy scenes to raise some topics in her actual therapy sessions, proving that watching The Sopranos (and listening to the only podcast about it) is a form of self-care. So please, take care of yourself. We’ve been meaning to tell you, we’re worried about you. You do not look well lately. There is no shame in reaching out to a friend (to tell them about the pod).

507: In Camelot, with Shereen Younes of Ethnically Ambiguous



What could you possibly pod to me that I haven’t already gun through?

Shereen Younes from the Ethnically Ambiguous podcast returns to the only Sopranos podcast to palaver with Matt and Vince about season five episode seven, “Camelot.”

During their stimulating conversation, we learn that Shereen, unlike Valentina, is not a fan of all pranks. She’s generally pro-Bad Trip pranks, and generally anti-Borat pranks.

More importantly, this episode of The Sopranos introduces us to one of the show’s best ancillary characters, JT Dolan, the television writer Chris meets at an AA meeting. The Sopranos writer’s room clearly loved using Tim Daly’s character to absolutely dunk on the very idea of writing for television. Maybe if he were a screenwriter, with an Oscar, they would have some respect for him.

TEASER: The Gay Mafia and The Suicide Squad



Hey all,

Just a reminder to become a Patron of the frotcast now and listen to our bonus content. 

This week we talk about The Suicide Squad, and other things. Description Below!


What’s up Frotters? Time for your weekly dose of content and we couldn’t be more excited about it. This week Matt and Vince watched the new and improved Suicide Squad movie on HBO Max. It’s like the other one only it’s better, and yet still just a movie about super people. We have mixed feelings but all-in-all it was a solid B+. Also, we talk about the new host of Jeopardy, celebrity bathing habits, and Matt Damon’s use of slurs. It’s a great episode. I love you.


506: Sentimental Education, with Anna Hossnieh from Ethnically Ambiguous



Tony B. throwing it all away

On the newest edition of PYAG, Anna Hossnieh from the Ethnically Ambiguous podcast and Deckheads on Twitch joins Matt & Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five, episode six “Sentimental Education.”

The episode, penned by Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, feels personal. Everyone thinks AJ’s teacher, Mr. Wegler, is gay because he reads stuff like Madam Bovary, so Weiner is like, oh yeah? Well this guy everyone thinks is gay just because he likes literature? Guess what, he’s shtupping your wife, Tony.

Also Tony B. throws his fresh start away for twelve thousand dollars and Anna points out that Carmela’s view of AJ’s intelligence is so low that she’s worried he won’t get into Arizona State. Take that, Sun Devils, you’re AJ-level dumb.

Tell us what you think of Matt’s favorite film, The Aviator, in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

TEASER: The Whoopi Goldberg Pass



Hey all,

New Patreon exclusive is out right now for Frotcast patreon subscribers. This episode we talk about The Green Knight eventually, but also a lot of other subjects including this excerpt about how Will Smith and Whoopi Goldberg can do no wrong. Description below!


What an episode! This week Matt and Vince invite comedian Jason Webb into the virtual Frotquarters to talk about many subjects and things. It’s very hot in California so both Vince and Matt have forgotten the majority of the conversation. Something about Dragula, something about David Ayers writing a defense of his Suicide Squad, a whole bit about Woody Allen defenders. And finally, a discussion of the movie The Green Knight and how Matt snuck Taco Bell into the theater. Great content all around
