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.

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.

606: Live Free or Die with comedian Amy Silverberg



Kiss On Both Cheeks

Grab some ribs, hop in your car, and throw on the latest Pod Yourself A Gun. Matt and Vince are joined by comedian, writer, professor, and weiner dog enthusiast Amy Silverberg to discuss The Sopranos season 6a episode 6 “Live Free or Die.”

This is the episode where everyone finds out Vito’s secret. The boys at the Bada Bing are mortified to hear from Finn that Vito has been on the receiving end of at least one penile encounter. As you can imagine, there is not a lot of acceptance among the wiseguys, which has Amy wondering if the younger mafia guys in 2021 are more open. According to her students, if you’re not bi, you’re a loser. Maybe today’s gangsters have progressed, but as far as Tony’s concerned, absolutely no gay stuff, unless you’re in prison for a while. That’s different.

We also meet Johnny Cakes for the first time. Go ahead and let out a big sigh while you stare at his potent mustache and think about that life you could have lived in a little town in Vermont if you weren’t such a good earner.

512: Long Term Parking, with Chris Cabin of We Hate Movies



Tony and Adriana Come Home

On the penultimate episode of season five of Pod Yourself A Gun, Matt and Vince are joined by writer and podcaster Chris Cabin from the We Hate Movies Podcast to talk about The Sopranos season five episode twelve, “Long Term Parking.”

Chris is our first “affiliated” guest, if you know what I mean. A photo of his father getting arrested ran in the New York Times because Chris comes from a self-described criminal family who ran a book for the Jewish mafia in Pittsburgh. So I’m not saying something bad will happen if you don’t listen to this episode, I’m just saying you have some beautiful ear drums and you should use them while you still have them. God forbid something bad happens to them, but if you listen to the pod, nothing bad will happen to them.

In what is possibly the show’s most gut-wrenching episode, we say goodbye to an animal-printed real one. If you haven’t seen the episode yet, first of all what are you doing reading this? Second, stop reading now if you don’t want it spoiled. RIP to our poor girl Adriana. She was so loyal to her man who was so loyal to his capo that she got ulcerative colitis and nearly had a Jerry Lewis moon face for her own wedding. She deserved better. Though her final moments occurred off screen, so you could choose to be one of those freaks who thinks that if a character’s death is not explicitly shown, the character is not dead. You’re wrong and you’re dumb, but you’re sweet.

At one point in the conversation, someone calls Adam Levine the Disney+ Dave Navarro, and that itself is worth a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.
