6b02: Stage 5, with Brendan from the Frotcast

Ride the Painted Pod, Let the Spinning Wheel Cast

Much like a child, a podcast has many parents. That is to say, many individuals who act like parents, or that by a version, the podcast is their baby. This week’s guest is one of those individuals. Certainly one of PYAG’s parents is The Frotcast, and Joining Matt and Vince to break down The Sopranos Season 6b, episode 2, “Stage 5,” is The Frotcast’s largest daddy, Brendan.

If this were an episode of Friends, it would be called, “The One with Chrissy’s Movie Premiere.” Cleaver, the film with many parents, is finally ready for public consumption, and while the graphic violence might strike some as unsettling, it’s the possible inspiration for the film’s overbearing, selfish, mob boss antagonist that was Tony feeling uncomfortable. As he tells Dr. Melfi, he knows too much about the subconscious now to believe that Chrissy still respects him after seeing Stephen Baldwin’s portrayal of him.

The episode also features the most British song yet. Stick around to the end to hear it.

306: University, With Brendan From The Frotcast

Are You Not Bread Pies Now? Pod Yourself a Gun covers The Sopranos season 3 episode 6, “University”

On this week’s episode of Pod Yourself a Gun, one of the surviving co-founders of the Filmdrunk Frotcast joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season 3 episode 6, “University.” Brendan is on the show and Marone! He’s a big-a meatball!

The episode features one of the best one-episode characters in The Sopranos’ run, Tracee. Poor, sweet Tracee. Ralphie could never love her as much as he loved the movie Gladiator (remember when that guy gets hit with the spike thing and chunks of his head go flying? That was so phat). Really there are a lot of examples of men and boys being bad in their own unique ways in this episode. Ralphie is an absolute psycho, Georgie at the Bada Bing is making the girls do him personal favors to get into the VIP room, and we learn Noah is a limo-liberal f*ckboi.

Come to this week’s podcast for the titties and meat analysis you know and love, but stay for the premiere of what will be remembered as the Western canon’s most influential Sopranos-inspired Kinks parody song. Write the next verse and put it in a five star review on iTunes.
