6b04: Chasing It, with Will Menaker of Chapo Trap House



Vito Jr: Goth Icon

A lot to chew on in season 6b episode 4 of The Sopranos. Including, but not limited to, Tony’s compulsive gambling, AJ’s disastrous engagement, Hesh’s deadly farts, and the two giant ice cream sundaes purchased for Vito Jr. that will need to be fully chewed up before you even think about getting in Phil Leotardo’s car. Returning to discuss “Chasing It” with Matt and Vince is writer and co-host of the Chapo Trap House podcast, Will Menaker.

During a scene dubbed by Will as “The Vito Jr./Phil Leotardo Silo Summit,” Vito appears to be eating an ice cream sundae at the Applegate Farms Ice Cream stand in Montclair, New Jersey. When Phil calls it a sundae, Vito corrects him, preferring the name as it’s written on the cold treat’s cup, “The Silo.” Currently, neither the Applegate Farms’ website, their Yelp page, nor their Doordash menu mentions The Silo as an option. Is this a deprecated gluttonous treat gone the way of the supersized meal? A Sopranos prop department fabrication? A locals-only, in-person menu option that non-New Jerseyans can only fantasize about? We may never know, but what we can say for certain is that while eating his two Silos, this son of Tony Soprano’s deceased best earner looks like a Puerta Rican whoo-er.

The guys also delve into Tony’s misguided gambling strategies, the way he trades homophobia for antisemitism, and Matt brings an appropriately NuMetal bada-b song in honor of North Jersey’s shower shittingest grave vandalizer.

403: Christopher, with Will Menaker From Chapo Trap House



In this house, we believe Columbus was a hero.

Put down your stinky cheeses and your cold wines, it’s time to talk about season 4 episode 3 of the Sopranos, Christopher, with Will Menaker from the Chapo Trap House podcast. Will joins Matt and Vince from Clinton Hill Brooklyn, home to Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. But on this podcast, the only Christopher we acknowledge is Moltisanti.

Written by Michael Imperioli, the actor who plays Chrissy, the episode is divisive even among Sopranos super fans due to its focus on identity politics and a ripped-from-the-headlines plot. Originally written for Paulie, the story focuses on Sylvio’s desire to see that Columbus, and by extension all hard working Italian-Americans hanging around pork stores, get the respect they deserve.

The woke mob came for Columbus, and all he did was cause enough pain and suffering to be disavowed by the psychos responsible for the Spanish Inquisition. The PC police are sure to come for Matt and Vince soon, so listen to this episode while you still can.

When you get back from the Columbus day protest counter-protest, give us a five star review on Apple Podcasts.
