6b03: Remember When, with Dave Schilling



Remember when Lin Manuel Miranda was on The Sopranos?

Remember when writer and LA Times Style columnist Dave Schilling was on the pod during season two to talk about “Knights In White Satin Armor?” Remember how great that was? This week on the pod, Matt and Vince welcome Dave back for a conversation about The Sopranos season 6a, episode 3, “Remember When.”

Remember when Richie Aprile ran Beansy over? Well despite pooping in a bag for the rest of his life (to Paulie’s horror), Paulie and Tony find him in Florida, living a pretty good life. After Tony’s first body becomes unburied, he and Paulie bounce to the Panhandle State to lay low for a while. While on their little vacation, Tony is embarrassed to remember how cool he used to think Paulie was, while Paulie can’t stop remembering what happened to Big Pussy the last time he was on a boat with Tony.

Remember when Tony says, “‘Remember when’ is the lowest form of conversation?” That was this episode. The famous clip from the Remember When Machine segment bumper. During the segment, Dave, Matt, & Vince remember when Tila Tequila was a budding triple threat, but they do not remember any of the other early social media stars listed in the New York Post’s “Nine Hottest Celebs on the Web” article from 2007.  Remember print media?

612: Kaisha, with Brendan James of “Blowback”



Is AJ a virgin? Does Tony lay pipe? Who did 9/11? Who assassinated JFK? These are just some of the hard-hitting questions Matt & Vince try to answer on this week’s edition of Pod Yourself A Gun with the help of guest Brendan James. Co-host, producer, and music composer of the Blowback podcast, Brendan joins the pod to discuss The Sopranos season 6A episode twelve, “Kaisha.”

There is a definitive answer to the question about AJ’s virginity in the episode, as we see him bribe some noisy neighborhood teens with a bike to get them to go somewhere else long enough to give his new 30-year-old single mom friend from work the peace and quiet she needs to climb up on Anthony Jr Jr. Inspired by the scene, I’ve been driving around with a lightly used mountain bike in the back of my Ford Explorer, and so far it has not lead to sex, but I’m hopeful. The question posed on the pod is, was this AJ’s first time? He’s definitely hanging around girls his age throughout the show, but as Matt points out, he’s got the energy of a guy who has resigned himself to a life of sweaty handjobs.

Describe, in disgusting detail, what you imagine AJ’s sex life was like in five-star review on  Apple Podcasts.

*ALSO* Matt Lieb will be on a LIVE edition of The Bitchuation Room with Francesca Fiorentini on Thursday March 10th in Brooklyn!! Tix: https://bit.ly/TBRBrooklyn

611: Cold Stones, with comedian/real Jersey Italian Paul Palmeri



Rosalie in Paris

Get your little berets and stinky cheeses ready for the latest PYAG. Comedian and actor Paul Palmeri joins Matt and Vince to talk about the Frenchest episode of The Sopranos, season 6A episode eleven, “Cold Stones.”

Paul, a self-described AJ-type, is a fitting guest for this AJ-heavy episode. After he gets fired from Blockbuster for loving the environment too much to let the promotional standees go unsold, Tony gets AJ a construction job. Framed as consequences for his poor decision making, Paul encourages AJ, and anyone listening, to cherish the opportunity to work outside and build things. Working inside and sending emails all day might not be physically demanding, but it will erode your soul in a way that young AJ will never understand. Imagine AJ in a conference room trying to learn scrum methodology or lean principles. Best case scenario: he’s a better project manager for a suicide attempt.

As much as all the dumb guys running this podcast love our dumb guy king AJ, this is a Rosalie Aprile episode. She’s in Paris showing the rest of us how to do a vacation. Get hit on by a hot young French person, buy some stuff, don’t poop, light a couple candles, and if your friend Carmela tries to kill the vibe by bringing up old trauma, kindly but firmly instruct her to shut the f*ck up. This is Paris, not therapy, you stunad. Eat a croissant and take some pictures you’ll never think about again. Leave dead family members where they belong — New Jersey’s Belleville.

If you have any merch from the band that Vince’s uncle and Victor Conti were in, please let us know in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

410: The Strong Silent Type, with Rachel Fisher from Hollywood Crime Scene



The straw that broke the dog’s neck.

If you met a stranger at the video store this morning and became friends because they could help you score drugs, throw on this episode of Pod Yourself A Gun for the two hour drive to their dealer’s house. Guest Rachel Fisher from the Hollywood Crime Scene podcast joins Matt and Vince to talk about season four, episode ten of The Sopranos, The Strong, Silent Type. Also known as the one with Chrissy’s intervention.

Based on what Rachel and Matt have to say about their experiences with the banal reality of late stage drug addiction, listening to this episode will be nothing like getting hooked on heroin. It’s fun and sexy and has a parody of Under the Bridge for the Bada B-stories. It’s not just addiction talk, though. They also cover America’s bizarre obsession with the Osbournes, the humiliation of getting beat with a xylophone, and how Furio and Svetlana represent the immigration myths Tony wishes he embodied.

If you think Matt should start a Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute band, tell us in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

303: “Fortunate Son” With Carey O’Donnell



This week on Pod Yourself A Gun, Matt and Vince welcome television writer and co-host of the Sexy Unique Podcast Carey O’Donnell (@ecareyo) to the pod to discuss episode 3 of season 3 of the Sopranos “Fortunate Son” – an episode in which Chris gets made.

“Fortunate Son” marks the beginning of what I would consider to be the gabbagool age of the Sopranos, which is the same as a golden age but better. In this episode, Chris gets made and struggles with the increased responsibilities, Tony discovers that much of his panic attacks are meat-based, AJ struggles with feelings of being a real dumdum, and Janice straight up steals Svetlana’s prosthetic leg in order to get back musical theater records. It’s a fantastic episode in the middle of a monumental season. See, sometimes we actually LIKE the Sopranos. Oh and Chrissy robs a Jewel concert in a Scream mask. Fucking epic.

Anyway, please leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts and/or wherever you get your podcasts.

Pod Yourself A Gun 12: Isabella



This week on Pod Yourself A Gun, we discuss episode 12 from season 1 of the Sopranos, “Isabella” – where Tony is deep in depression about the disappearance of his friend (and possible snitch) Big Pussy. As we near the end of the first season of the Sopranos, and the first season of Pod Yourself A Gun, Matt and Vince have decided that all of you listeners out there deserve an episode of this show with NO GUEST and just the pure, unadulterated analysis of your loyal PYAG hosts. Just the raw shit, no filler. And what better episode to do this than Isabella, which has zero nudity. That’s right, ZERO.
