511: The Test Dream, with Felix Biederman of Chapo Trap House



Wetwork Dreams

Felix Biederman of the Chapo Trap House podcast joins Matt & Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five episode twelve, “The Test Dream.”

As the title of the episode suggests, the improbably named Brian Benben would feel right at home, as Tony is Dream-ing On through much of the runtime. Dream sequences are a polarizing topic on this podcast, but even Vince has to agree with Felix that while it may run long, it does feel like an actual stress dream. Teeth are falling out, there’s a thing Tony needs to do that he can’t get done, and wait, who was he just having sex with? Classic dream stuff.

If you’re less interested in what your brain is up to at night, and more interested modern murder techniques, stick around for a digression about the practicality of the garrote as a killing device. Seems hard to use. Like you’d have to practice at home. Imagine that — a little practice garrote next to the Bowflex adjustable dumbbells in that corner of the garage you call the weight room. It’s all just collecting dust and then one day you’re trying to take out a rat and your arms are shaking and you’re all out of position and you think, man, why did I buy all that gear?

What would be your weapon of choice if you were to murder one of us? Let us know in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

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.

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).

Who is the hottest Flintstones character? Tell us in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

TEASER: Lumcoin, a new crytpo



Hey all,

The following is a teaser for Frotcast 481, available right now on our Patreon. Join now!

Description:

It’s just one of those days. Or three.

Woodstock 99 will forever go down in history as one of the biggest concert disasters in history and the new HBO Max documentary about it does absolutely nothing to dispel that myth. On this week’s Frotcast, Matt and Vince welcome back Frotcast favorite Joey Devine (from Roundball Rock) to discuss what they got wrong in the new documentary, and how at this point we need to stop blaming Fred Durst for everything.

We also talk about Spike Lee’s crypto commercial, different types of sandals, and some other stuff.


504: All Happy Families, with Tanner Johnson of DuckTales



You either die an AJ or live long enough to see yourself become a Janice.

On the latest Pod Yourself a Gun, writer and director Tanner Johnson from the new DuckTales series joins Matt and Vince to talk about season five episode four of The Sopranos, “All Happy Families.”

Your second and third favorite numetal meatheads go in depth on your favorite nu metal meathead, AJ Soprano. Written by Toni Kalem, the same Toni Kalem who plays Angie Bonpensiero, this episode is peak AJ. He goes to a Mudvayne concert, does some fat bong rips, lies to his parents, brags about being “learning disabled,” and gets mad at his mom about drums. He does not, however do any poppers or have weird sex.

We are also introduced to Tony Blundetto’s weird twin children who he managed to father while in prison. We learn that Tone somehow snuck his cousin’s seed out of the clink. As noted during the pod, this likely means that someone had to keister a Tony B. load to get it past security. Love to see dudes helping dudes.

If you have a learning disability, you get unlimited time to leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts

TEASER: Romeo + Juliet = Twitter fight



Hey all,

Just a reminder that every week Vince and Matt have some exclusive Patreon content for you. Join now and listen to this amazing episode with comedian Grant Gordon.

DESCRIPTION

Hey Frotters, this week Vince Mancini and Matt Lieb welcome comedian Grant Gordon to the pod to discuss all sorts of movie junk and TV trash. We talk about the Emmy noms, TV theme music, Rob Schneider’s anti-vax madness, sex toys, and Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet with Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio. Also, Matt occasionally leaves the studio to say hi to his mom, though most of that is done off mic. Just figured you should know it’s happening so you’re not confused. Enjoy!


502: Rat Pack, with Alison Rosen of ‘Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend’



Snitches and Rat Packs

Please, pull up a chair, take off your hat with the tiny microphone hidden inside, and listen to the latest episode of Pod Yourself A Gun. Alison Rosen of the Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend and Childish podcasts joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five episode two, “The Rat Pack.”

As the world’s only Sopranos podcast, it’s our responsibility to point out that the title of this episode Has two meanings. It refers to the trio of iconic crooners seen in the collage Jack Massarone gives to Tony in the first scene, and also Jack Massarone, Ray Curto and Adriana, who are ratting on Tony to the FBI. One phrase with two meanings? That’s modern art, baby. Tony is clear that he’s not a fan of art, which makes Alison, Matt, and Vince ask each other if that’s the writers way of showing disdain for these meathead characters who can’t appreciate art. Tony f*cks a lot, eats meats, and is strong, which is exactly the kind of guy a scrawny, dorky writer-type would hate, so maybe they are onto something.

Some other questions that we try to answer on the pod: Where do mafia guys get the dead rats to stuff into their dead snitch’s mouths? Is Tony fat, wide, or Sicilian husky? Is Vince’s heart too pure to win a game of poker? Can Matt effectively mansplain crypto to Alison? Listen now to find out.

We’re not mind readers so if you love the show, tell us in a five star review on Apple Podcasts.

[UNLOCKED] Frotcast 473 – The De Vil Wears Doggos



Hey Pod Yourself A Gun listeners,

Hope you are enjoying the PYAG hiatus and are handling it with patience and grace. The following is a FREE episode of the Filmdrunk Frotcast a.k.a. the pod that spawned our modest lil Sopranos podcast that you currently enjoy. Just want to encourage you to subscribe to the Frotcast on all your podcast devices and strongly encourage you to donate to the Patreon in order to feed upon our content while we start prepping season 5 of the Sopranos pod for you.

——-

It’s time for your regularly scheduled program, the Filmdrunk Frotcast with Vince Mancini and Matt Lieb. This week, the boys watched the brand new Disney Plus movie event Cruella, an origin story for the fashionista/dog murdering villain from 101 Dalmatians. I’m positive this joke has been made before but it’s basically The Joker without all of that pesky incel energy. It’s a touching film about a #GirlBoss who slays the patriarchy on her long road to eventually slaying dogs. Run, don’t walk, to your nearest smart TV and stream it now.

We also discuss Bo Burnham’s new comedy special Inside as well as Ellie Kemper’s recent kerfuffle with being crowned the Yellow Queen at the KKK prom or something. Finally, Laremy Legal makes an appearance. Enjoy!


Pod Yourself A Gun – A Sopranos Podcast EPISODE 1



Welcome to Pod Yourself A Gun – A Sopranos Podcast, where every week comedians Vince Mancini and Matt Lieb (of the Filmdrunk Frotcast) take you through each episode of the most important TV show ever made. In this pilot episode of Pod Yourself A Gun, we discuss the pilot episode of The Sopranos with TV critic Alan Sepinwall who has written multiple books about the Sopranos, most recently “The Sopranos Sessions” available now at book stores everywhere. We dissect every facet of the pilot, from the original Father Phil Intintola, to the objectively terrible Sopranos theme song. It’s just plain awful. It’s barely music. What does “born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes” even mean? Anyway, hope you enjoy the episode as much as we enjoyed making it. And if you don’t enjoy it, va fangool.
