6b05: Walk Like A Man, with Alison Rosen



Al(ison) Rosen About Love

Writer, TV personality, and host of the Upworthy Weekly, Childish, and Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend podcasts, Alison Rosen returns to talk to Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season 6a episode 5, “Walk Like A Man.”

The alternate title for this episode is bell hooks, because it’s all about love, baby. AJ, positively distraught about his unrequited love for his former fiance Blanca, has his family worried he’s going to harm himself. Tony, trying to show love the only way he knows how, suggests he try drowning his sorrows in tiddies and meat like the other boys his age. Somehow this ends with AJ helping the other boys burn some kid’s foot with acid. It’s an experience AJ does not love.

According to bell hooks, love is “the will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth.” By this definition, Tony and the guys do not love Chris like they say they do. His sobriety represents spiritual growth, and as they point out on the podcast, the whole point of the mafia is to monetize spiritual stagnation. Paulie, Tony, Bobby, and Chris are shoveling so much shit on Chris’ side of the street, that he decides he’s done trying to keep it clean. He falls off both the wagon and his stool.

On a happier note, when two people (like Matt and Francesca) are in love, they do gross stuff in the privacy of their home, and the result is a future child. That’s right, LA Matt, flap flap, all up in that womb with the spratz. Our boy has a baby on the way. Now more than ever, we need your damn money. Please don’t make us do what Paulie yells at Chrissy. Please don’t make us suck the money out of your ass. Sign up for the patreon and leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

605: Mr. & Mrs. John Sacrimoni Request with Brent Flyberg



My Big Fat Mob Wedding

PYAG and Tony are back to work. Matt and Vince are joined by comedian, podcaster, generous lover, and big muscle haver, Brent Flyberg to discuss The Sopranos season 6a episode 5, “Mr & Mrs. Sacrimoni Request…”

In this episode, directed by Tony Uncle Al himself, Johnny Sack’s daughter is getting married, and Tony’s worried that all the jackals he hangs out with are noticing how weak he is after his coma. He also can’t help but notice how hot all these jackals are. Bobby Bacala is Bobby boom shakalaka shaking the rim with monster dunks, Paulie’s got big hairy biceps, and this spicy new driver looks like Dominic Torretto if he liked working out more than he liked drinking Coronas and working on cars.

Tony can’t keep his eyes off Muscles Marinara, and Vito can’t maintain his double life after getting spotted at a leather daddy bar. He’s wearing some kind of long-sleeve mock turtleneck under his leather vest, which Vince points out is the leather daddy equivalent of a t-shirt in the pool. A lot of body related insecurity in this episode. These characters should get on Brent’s workout plan. That dude is ripped, and he volunteers? What a guy.

Stick around to the end to hear a listener voicemail about an encounter with Robert Iler. If you have any stories about meeting cast members: 415-275-0030

505: Irregular Around The Margins, with PFT Commenter of Pardon My Take



Tony please don’t cuck me just because you can 

Writer and podcaster PFT Commenter from the Pardon My Take podcast joins Matt & Vince to teach you how to get a 2nd slice at The House of Prime Rib and also talk about The Sopranos season five episode five “Irregular Around the Margins.”

If you’re worried about spoilers, first of all, I’m surprised you’re still listening, but skip the first seven minutes. There, you’ve been warned.

Adriana’s got stress-induced IBS because of the war in the Middle East and Christopher is not a sympathetic partner. As pointed out in the podcast, Christoper is a collection of bad boyfriend cliches, which is maybe why everyone believed that she would hook up with Tony. It really looked like they were going to do it, if they hadn’t been in that car accident. This has the guys wondering, is it possible for two people to go on a late night coke run platonically? That conversation dovetails into a surprisingly detailed discussion of the attractiveness of every Flinstones character (they’re all pretty hot).

405: Pie-o-My, with Stavros Halkias from Cum Town



Tony Soprano is a horse boy on the latest Pod Yourself A Gun.

Stavros Halkias from the Cum Town and Pod Don’t Lie podcasts joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season four, episode five, Pie-O-My.

Before we get too far, if you’re worried about spoilers, maybe don’t listen to this episode just yet. Put it on and leave the room so we can still wet our beaks a little bit, but some future events are mentioned. There — you were warned. If you listen to this episode and hear some stuff you didn’t want to hear, that’s on you. You had 20 years to prevent this. What were you waiting for, by the way? The show saved Stav’s life twice already. Meanwhile you were watching what? House of Cards? Louie? That Workaholics episode where Chris D’Elia plays himself? You’re sick in the head.

Anyways for all the cool, normal folks who already saw it or won’t get mad because they understand how time, television and the internet work, this is a fun episode. The guys talk about the shady origins of Stav and Vince’s surnames, the audacity of Janice Soprano, and some excuses to do heroin. They also listen to a couple voicemails and Stav offers his thoughts on who did 9/11.

If you love the podcast as much as David Chase loves fat jokes, take a seat, then get off the floor because you broke another chair, and leave a five star review on Apple Podcasts.
