608: The Blue Comet, with Justin Halpern EP of Harley Quinn and Abbott Elementary



It’s A-me, A-DHL-a

As we close in on the end of the only podcast about the GOATest show of all time, we welcome an old friend back to the pod to help us say goodbye to another one of Jersey’s finest pork store associates. Writer, frequent Frot guest, and Executive Producer for Abbot Elementary and Harley Quinn, Justin Halpern rejoins Matt and Vince to talk about the penultimate episode of The Sopranos, season 6b episode 8, “The Blue Comet.”

Pay your last respects to a loving father, good earner, dutiful husband, and model train enthusiast, Bobby Bacala. From Junior’s driver, to redundant upper management, Bobby lives in our hearts, and in the ziti he left in his freezer.

Other notable dust-biters in this episode: Bert Gervasi, two poor Ukrainian suckers who answered the door for the wrong Italian DHL driver, and a guy riding his motorcycle past the Bada Bing at the wrong time (probably). Through it all, AJ makes everything about himself and his depression, like a natural-born podcaster.

6b05: Walk Like A Man, with Alison Rosen



Al(ison) Rosen About Love

Writer, TV personality, and host of the Upworthy Weekly, Childish, and Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend podcasts, Alison Rosen returns to talk to Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season 6a episode 5, “Walk Like A Man.”

The alternate title for this episode is bell hooks, because it’s all about love, baby. AJ, positively distraught about his unrequited love for his former fiance Blanca, has his family worried he’s going to harm himself. Tony, trying to show love the only way he knows how, suggests he try drowning his sorrows in tiddies and meat like the other boys his age. Somehow this ends with AJ helping the other boys burn some kid’s foot with acid. It’s an experience AJ does not love.

According to bell hooks, love is “the will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth.” By this definition, Tony and the guys do not love Chris like they say they do. His sobriety represents spiritual growth, and as they point out on the podcast, the whole point of the mafia is to monetize spiritual stagnation. Paulie, Tony, Bobby, and Chris are shoveling so much shit on Chris’ side of the street, that he decides he’s done trying to keep it clean. He falls off both the wagon and his stool.

On a happier note, when two people (like Matt and Francesca) are in love, they do gross stuff in the privacy of their home, and the result is a future child. That’s right, LA Matt, flap flap, all up in that womb with the spratz. Our boy has a baby on the way. Now more than ever, we need your damn money. Please don’t make us do what Paulie yells at Chrissy. Please don’t make us suck the money out of your ass. Sign up for the patreon and leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

6b02: Stage 5, with Brendan from the Frotcast



Ride the Painted Pod, Let the Spinning Wheel Cast

Much like a child, a podcast has many parents. That is to say, many individuals who act like parents, or that by a version, the podcast is their baby. This week’s guest is one of those individuals. Certainly one of PYAG’s parents is The Frotcast, and Joining Matt and Vince to break down The Sopranos Season 6b, episode 2, “Stage 5,” is The Frotcast’s largest daddy, Brendan.

If this were an episode of Friends, it would be called, “The One with Chrissy’s Movie Premiere.” Cleaver, the film with many parents, is finally ready for public consumption, and while the graphic violence might strike some as unsettling, it’s the possible inspiration for the film’s overbearing, selfish, mob boss antagonist that was Tony feeling uncomfortable. As he tells Dr. Melfi, he knows too much about the subconscious now to believe that Chrissy still respects him after seeing Stephen Baldwin’s portrayal of him.

The episode also features the most British song yet. Stick around to the end to hear it.
