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.

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.

TEASER: Frotcast 479 – Empathy Is Problematic, With Shereen Younes



Don’t miss out on our bonus content! Subscribe to the Patreon immediately.

This week on the Frotcast, Shereen Younes from Ethnically Ambiguous is back on the pod to grill Matt about what it’s like being a twin, and whether twin comedians resent other twin comedians. We also talk about American Underdog, and Zachary Levi playing Kurt Warner in what sounds like a Christian film. In the process, we discover that Zachary Levi isn’t Jewish. Other topics include Shaquille O’Neal and an article Matt found in which someone with diagonosed psychosis explains which commonly used terms, such as “empathy,” are actually problematic. We take a side route into bike twitter, and finally, we even manage to discuss a movie — Zola, about the stripper tweet thread (no spoilers!). Finally, we explain why calling our listeners piggies is actually a term of endearment.

Pod Yourself A Gun 9: Boca, With Anna Hossnieh From Daily Zeitgeist



For episode nine, Anna Hossnieh from The Daily Zeitgeist and Ethnically Ambiguous podcasts joins Pod Yourself A Gun to talk “Boca,” episode nine of The Sopranos. Released March 7, 1999, “Boca” is allegedly a double meaning title, referring both to Uncle Junior’s trip to Boca Raton with his girlfriend Bobbi Sanfilipo, and as in Italian/Spanish for mouth, since this episode is all about loose lips. Junior’s loose lips because he likes to perform cunnilingus, and Bobbi’s because she loves cunnilingus and loves to gab to all her friends about Junior’s cunnilingus skills. Which is a problem for Junior because apparently in the mafia, doing oral sex on a lady makes you gay. Doing the last thing any gay man would want to do is one of the gayest things you can do, as we know. Eventually he pulls a modified Cagney on her which seems extremely rude.

Other plotlines include Meadow’s soccer coach abandoning the team to coach at Rhode Island, and Meadow’s soccer coach having sex with one of the players, which leads her to slit her wrists on the swingset, which is where everyone loves to slit their wrists, obviously. Meanwhile Artie and Charmaine bicker over what to do about Tony, and Artie and Tony bicker over what to do with the soccer coach, and Junior and Mikey Palmice bicker over what to do about the feds. Silvio just nods a lot. Supposedly he wore his own golf hat for this episode. Incredible.
