503: Where’s Johnny? with Paco Romane from Sup Doc



The makings of a varsity podcaster

Comedian, writer, and actor Paco Romane from the Sup Doc podcast  takes a break from his eighth rewatch of the Sopranos to join Matt and Vince for a conversation about season five episode three, “Where’s Johnny?”

This episode, unlike the marinara Janice is buying from Vesuvio and passing off as her own, is full of beef. Johnny Sac and Little Carmine have beef over who collects gambling debts, Feech and Paulie are beefing over gardener territories, and Tony and Junior are beefing over Tony’s athletic prowess.  Junior says it was Tony’s small hands that kept him from being a varsity athlete, but I think he was always winded from all the nose whistling.

Near the end of the episode you’ll hear as Vince experiences the great Fresno earthquake of 2021. Sort of felt like the earth’s way of saying it was time to wrap it up.

If you have any suggestions for how Vesuvio could improve the eggplant parm, leave them in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts

TEASER: Romeo + Juliet = Twitter fight



Hey all,

Just a reminder that every week Vince and Matt have some exclusive Patreon content for you. Join now and listen to this amazing episode with comedian Grant Gordon.

DESCRIPTION

Hey Frotters, this week Vince Mancini and Matt Lieb welcome comedian Grant Gordon to the pod to discuss all sorts of movie junk and TV trash. We talk about the Emmy noms, TV theme music, Rob Schneider’s anti-vax madness, sex toys, and Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet with Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio. Also, Matt occasionally leaves the studio to say hi to his mom, though most of that is done off mic. Just figured you should know it’s happening so you’re not confused. Enjoy!


502: Rat Pack, with Alison Rosen of ‘Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend’



Snitches and Rat Packs

Please, pull up a chair, take off your hat with the tiny microphone hidden inside, and listen to the latest episode of Pod Yourself A Gun. Alison Rosen of the Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend and Childish podcasts joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five episode two, “The Rat Pack.”

As the world’s only Sopranos podcast, it’s our responsibility to point out that the title of this episode Has two meanings. It refers to the trio of iconic crooners seen in the collage Jack Massarone gives to Tony in the first scene, and also Jack Massarone, Ray Curto and Adriana, who are ratting on Tony to the FBI. One phrase with two meanings? That’s modern art, baby. Tony is clear that he’s not a fan of art, which makes Alison, Matt, and Vince ask each other if that’s the writers way of showing disdain for these meathead characters who can’t appreciate art. Tony f*cks a lot, eats meats, and is strong, which is exactly the kind of guy a scrawny, dorky writer-type would hate, so maybe they are onto something.

Some other questions that we try to answer on the pod: Where do mafia guys get the dead rats to stuff into their dead snitch’s mouths? Is Tony fat, wide, or Sicilian husky? Is Vince’s heart too pure to win a game of poker? Can Matt effectively mansplain crypto to Alison? Listen now to find out.

501: Two Tonys, with Noel Brown from Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know



Men will literally send laundry detergent to their therapists before they will go to therapy. 

Quit your squealing, piggies. That sweet, sweet gabagool flavored slop is back with that divorced dad energy you find so attractive. Guest Noel Brown from the Stuff They Don’t Want You To KnowRidiculous History & Movie Crush podcasts joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five premiere, “Two Tonys.”

When season 5 starts, Tony and Carm aren’t officially divorced but they are separated enough for Tony to shoot his shot with Dr Melfi, and he’s not exactly Steph Curry. As discussed in the podcast, he’s coming on strong and looking psychologically sweaty. Tony’s undeniable raw magenetism is well-documented on this podcast, but in this episode, his raw animal instincts are on display in the least appealing way imaginable. He’s like a Rottweiler with his lipstick out trying to hump Melfi’s leg as she backs away. That might get a disgusting weirdo like you riled up, but it’s not working for Melfi.

Tony’s not the only animal lurking around, as AJ runs into an actual bear in the backyard. If this were a podcast for nerds, there would likely be some kind of discussion about the symbolism here. “Tony is the bear and the bear is Tony!” the nerds are shouting as Matt, Vince, and Noel agree that AJ sounds like a whiny little baby when he cries for his mommy.

[UNLOCKED] Frotcast 473 – The De Vil Wears Doggos



Hey Pod Yourself A Gun listeners,

Hope you are enjoying the PYAG hiatus and are handling it with patience and grace. The following is a FREE episode of the Filmdrunk Frotcast a.k.a. the pod that spawned our modest lil Sopranos podcast that you currently enjoy. Just want to encourage you to subscribe to the Frotcast on all your podcast devices and strongly encourage you to donate to the Patreon in order to feed upon our content while we start prepping season 5 of the Sopranos pod for you.

——-

It’s time for your regularly scheduled program, the Filmdrunk Frotcast with Vince Mancini and Matt Lieb. This week, the boys watched the brand new Disney Plus movie event Cruella, an origin story for the fashionista/dog murdering villain from 101 Dalmatians. I’m positive this joke has been made before but it’s basically The Joker without all of that pesky incel energy. It’s a touching film about a #GirlBoss who slays the patriarchy on her long road to eventually slaying dogs. Run, don’t walk, to your nearest smart TV and stream it now.

We also discuss Bo Burnham’s new comedy special Inside as well as Ellie Kemper’s recent kerfuffle with being crowned the Yellow Queen at the KKK prom or something. Finally, Laremy Legal makes an appearance. Enjoy!

TEASER: Patreon review of “Those Who Wish Wish Me Dead” on HBO Max



Hey Podsiglieres, the following is a little taste of Matt and Vince’s non-Sopranos podcast The Frotcast in which we talk movies, sports, stuff we find on the internet, and much MUCH more. This week we had Pod Yourself A Gun producer Brent Flyberg on to talk “Those Who Wish Me Dead.” Give yourself the gift of continued Matt Lieb and Vince Mancini content while they prepare for season 5 of PYAG by going to www.patreon.com/frotcast and subscribing!

Description:

Of all of the movie roles that Angelina Jolie has chosen not to pass on in her long and illustrious career, this one might be the absolute worst. This week on your favorite podcast, Vince and Matt invite PYAG producer Brent Flyberg to the virtual Frotquarters to talk HBO Max’s “Those Who Wish Me Dead” – a movie where Angelina Jolie plays a firefighter who can’t run and has to save a child from a team of hitmen who want him dead for no real reason on the order of Tyler Perry. It’s inexplicable. It makes no sense. And, in a way, it’s glorious. It’s like a movie written by cocaine. Like if cocaine got the Dr Frankenstein treatment, was zapped into being and decided to write a screenplay. We also talk about Bill Gates again, the dark side of Bob Ross and how Mr. Rogers definitely had some skeletons in his closet. It’s a great episode. Enjoy!


413: Whitecaps, with David Roth from the Distraction podcast



A cast of pod which the world, every morning, strains and pushes out of its butt. 

 

On the newest edition of Pod Yourself A Gun, David Roth from Defector Media and The Distraction podcast joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season four episode thirteen, “Whitecaps.”

 

The season four finale is widely regarded as one of the series’ best, and will ask you, if you can, to imagine where you are on the pecking order. A call from Irina leaves Carmela feeling low, and tears the Sopranos family away from each other and from the beach house from which the episode gets its title.

 

Even with Tony’s breathing sounding, as David points out, like a pug on a hot day, the episode has Edie Falco and James Gandolfini turning in two of the finest performances ever seen on television. They both won Emmy’s for this.

 

If there were awards for great single-serving Sopranos jerkass characters, I would definitely give one to the episode’s other star, Alan Sapinsly, or as he calls himself, “A.S.” He owns the house Tony wants to buy and boy does he want you to know he’s a lawyer and he knows what “tort” means. What a perfect Sundance swag hat-wearing a*hole.

We’re taking a short break in between seasons, so tell us how much you miss us in a five star review on Apple Podcasts.

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.

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.
