411: Calling All Cars with Netflix’s Johan Miranda



Janice Soprano: Petty Godfather & Spiritual Gangster

Hope you like dream sequences, and therapy scenes, because David Chase managed to wedge two of each into a 47 minute-long episode of The Sopranos. Guest Johan Miranda, a comedian featured in Larry Charles’ Dangerous World of Comedy on Netflix, joins Matt and Vince to talk about season four, episode eleven of The Sopranos, “Calling All Cars.”

Vince, Matt, & Johan point out that this is a pretty sitcom-y episode. Maybe the shorter runtime has something to do with that, maybe it’s AJ Soprano running his tight five about ethnic cuisine at the dinner table, or maybe it’s the scene where Bobby Bacala buries a cake at his wife’s grave. That last one is pretty sad, actually. *Wiping a tear from my eye* No one got to eat that cake.

This is really a Janice episode though. She so badly wants Bobby Sr. to forget about his dead wife long enough to rail her that she catfishes a child on AOL. Listen now and help us decide, is Janice a spiritual Munchausen by proxy-er, a gaslighter, or just a manipulative psycho? Let us know what you think in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

402: No Show, with Amelia Cady



How’s it gonna be when Stephen Jenkins sues this podcast?
I hope you liked last week’s parody songs and Third Eye Blind frontman anecdotes, because the newest episode of Pod Yourself A Gun has more of both. Amelia Cady joins Matt & Vince to talk about The Sopranos Season four episode two, No Show.
Listen to the podcast to hear Amelia describe Matt on Heroin, Stephen Jenkins prancing away from an argument, and how Tony Soprano’s raw animal magnetism drives her desire to exhume Gandolfini’s body so she can doo doo doo, doo doo-doo do him.
Some other topics covered are Meadow Soprano’s gap year ambitions, Carmela’s sick Mary Higgins Clark related burn, a gay mafioso named Don Purple, Young Vince’s encounter with Anthony Kiedis, and how Matt was just a little too poor to join the fingering cult. Even in their reductionism, Amelia, Matt, and Vince have quite interesting things to say about death and loss.
