407: Watching Too Much Television, with comedian Greg Edwards



The many saints of who gives a sh*t about Newark?

LA Comedian Greg Edwards joins Matt and Vince for this week’s edition of Pod Yourself A Gun to talk about The Sopranos season four episode seven, Watching Too Much Television. Greg has known Matt since back in his college sketch comedy days, so we get a good story about Matt’s brother botching his one line as an audience plant. Really makes you wonder who the parents were less proud of in that moment: the son who can’t remember one line, or the son who is making sketch comedy.

This is one of those episodes of The Sopranos where it’s hard to tell if the characters are racist or the show is racist, but either way, Tony, Assemblyman Zellman, and his black activist friend Maurice conspire to defraud the Department of Housing and Urban Development and displace some crack dealers in the process.

The scam involves buying some property in Tony’s old neighborhood, so he takes AJ to Newark to show him an old church and teach him a little Italian-American history, but is reminded that while Tony might be a smart dumb guy, AJ is a dumb dumb guy. AJ is also, as Greg points out, inadvertently the moral compass for this family full of psychos. He’s too dumb to be malicious and that’s what makes him beautiful.

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.

Pod Yourself 16: Toodle-Fucking-Oo, With Shereen Younes (S2E3)



Pod Yourself A Gun, the world’s only Sopranos rewatch podcast, is back with another fresh and wholly original hour of thoughtful Sopranos critique/offensive impressions of Italian-Americans and jokes about dick sucking lips. This week Matt and Vince watched season 2, episode 3 “Toodle-Fucking-Oo” or as Vince titled it “Hey We’re Old School, Right?”

This episode introduces Richie Aprile and Beansy into Sopranos lore and we see three generations of Soprano women (Meadow, Janice and Livia) flex their manipulation muscle.
General themes include:
-Old school vs new age
-Dr. Melfi vs Jennifer Melfi
-Lips vs tits
-Can you beat a woman if she’s not your wife?
-You can’t even beat your kids anymore!
Matt and Vince welcome the hilarious Shereen Younes (of the Ethnically Ambiguous podcast) who offers a MIND BLOWING theory regarding the relationship between Beansy and Richie. It honestly will change the way you watch the rest of season 2. Enjoy this episode you worthless bookyaks. GABAGOOOOOL!

Pod Yourself A Gun 11: Nobody Knows Anything, With Joey Devine



It’s time for another hilarious, informative, and not-nearly-frequent-enough episode of the world’s premier Sopranos podcast, Pod Yourself A Gun. This week Matt Lieb and Vince Mancini are talking season one, episode 11, “Nobody Knows Anything.” Our guest is Joey Devine from the world famous NBA podcast, Roundball Rock.

In episode 11, which premiered March 21st, 1999, Pussy has a bad back and might be a snitch, dirty detective Vin Makazian is sick of the way Tony has been treating him, Junior learns new secrets from Livia, and we meet a smattering of new characters — including Debbie, the madame with a heart of gold, Mikey Palmice’s wife, the mysterious and wonderful bordello doctor known only as “Dr. Mop and Glow,” and a reference to “the Jonas Salk of backs.” This episode also marks the first time we hear Pauly Walnuts’ Godfather theme car horn. So many things to discuss!

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.
