513: All Due Respect, with David J Roth from The Distraction

Do You Believe Sopranos Bus Tour

For the final episode of Pod Yourself A Gun season five, writer, podcaster and listener-requested returning guest David J. Roth from Defector Media and The Distraction Podcast chats with Matt and Vince about The Sopranos season five episode thirteen, “All Due Respect.”

Somehow during David’s first appearance, we skipped over David’s experience applying for a job as a Sopranos bus tour guide in New Jersey. He didn’t get the job, which he seems fine with, but that’s a real Sliding Doors moment. He probably lies awake on the nights when running a successful subscription-based sports blog feels hard and wonders how different his life would be if he had spent more of his twenties riding a bus to and from Satin Dolls (the real life strip club used for shooting the Bada Bing scenes).

David also famously taught Matt how to use autotune, so a significant portion of the audience might be mad at him, but this week’s Cher inspired Bada-B song is, to quote David, “A triumph.”

309: The Telltale Moozadell, With Samer Kalaf From Defector Media

AJ Soprano has never seen a gutter but he has seen The Matrix.

This week on Pod Yourself A Gun, Samer Kalaf, Managing Editor of Defector Media, joins Matt and Vince to talk about one of their favorite subjects: beautiful little idiot AJ Soprano. Samer sets the bar high for future guests by not only taking notes for episode 3 season 9, “The Telltale Moozadell,” but he’s actually seen all of The Sopranos.

The episode itself is near perfect (solid B+), and features a young Lady Gaga as one of the girls AJ is trying to impress when he goes all Fred Durst and breaks stuff in the school late at night (on his mother’s birthday?!?). The fellas learn from Vince’s wife that unlike young men, not all young women go through a needless destruction phase. Good for them, I guess, but everyone should get to break one window in their life just to feel that power.

Speaking of power, Gloria can’t resist the power of Tony’s raw, animal sexuality, even at the zoo, when he’s surrounded by gorillas with the exact same posture and body type. Can Tony resist the urge to recognize his mother’s traits in Gloria?
