Pod Yourself Tix to Hollywood Quars Thursday June 4

Hey everyone, Matt Lieb here co-host of the Frotcast and Pod Yourself A Gun. Anyway, I’m all up in the feed right now because tomorrow, or today, Thursday, June 4th at 7:30pm PST, I am hosting a YouTube live streaming game show called Hollywood Quars and I would love for you to buy tickets to it. Tickets are available at www.hollywoodquars.com So what is Hollywood Quars, you ask? It’s a game show where I ask 9 comedians trivia questions that I do not know the answer to. Here’s how it works: The host Matt Lieb will ask a contestant a question and the contestant will give their answer. Then I’ll say whether I “agree” or “disagree” with the answer. Then our judges/producers Ali Hart and Rebecca Rufer will tell us if the answer actually *is* correct incorrect. They get one point for correct answers whether I “agree” or not. But if the contestant gives me a very convincing incorrect answer, and I “agree” with it, they get two points. That means getting me to believe a wrong a...

213: SEASON FINALE "Funhouse" with Nelini Stamp

212: Knights In White Satin Armor, With Dave Schilling

EBack when we started this crazy Sopranos rewatch podcast all those year ago, "Knights In White Satin" was exactly the kind ofepisode we had in mind. Episode 12 of season two, this one really is one of the greatest Sopranos episodes ever, easily a top fiver. It introduces all sorts of new and interesting characters, from Jackie Aprile's son Jackie Jr. to Irina's cousin, the one-legged chain-smoking Svetlana (one of my favorite characters in all the Sopranos canon) whose boyfriend romantically picked her up off the floor at the Gap store. But for the most part, episode 212 is an entirely self-contained miniature movie, with fully developed plotlines, complete character arcs, big twists, and satisfying resolutions. I bet you didn't think Richie and Janice's wedding was going to turn out like that, did you! If you're a Sopranos virgin looking for one episode to get you hooked, check out this one, I'm friggin' tellin' you over heah. As always we have your hosts, comedian Matt Lieb from N...

211: House Arrest, With Bobby Bigwheel

EIn season 2, episode 11 of The Sopranos (aka episode 211) everyone is trapped. Junior is trapped in house arrest and trapped in his old body, Dr. Melfi is trapped in a spiral of alcoholism, and Tony is trapped with Richie Aprile in his family and in being the boss. It's both probably the most Scorsese episode and the first episode where Dr. Melfi's storyline is one of the better ones. Dr. Melfi's son, the intellectual Napoleon Dynamite, even makes a brief appearance, in a scene that is an absolute masterpiece of classic Sopranos comedy, where every character is equally terrible. Joining us this week is Twitter-lebrity (*dodges tomato*) and huge Soprano-head Bobby Bigwheel, helping us talk through all your favorite Pod Yourself A Gun segments, from Bada B Stories, Da Real Gangsta, It's The 90s, Malapropism Corner, and Gabba Va Vongool. We also answer your listener voicemails. As always, your Pod Yourself A Gun hosts are Matt Lieb from Newsbroke and Vince Mancini from Uproxx. You can leave us an email at frotcast@gmail.com or a voicemail at 415 275 0030. Don't forget to leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts. We hope you love every minute of it, and until next week, don't stop believin'.

210: Bust Out, With Nando Vila From The Young Turks

EEpisode 210 (season 2, episode 10) of The Sopranos originally aired on HBO on March 19th, 2000, when Julia Roberts was burning up the screen in Erin Brockovich and Vladimir Putin was just a week away from his first election. "Bust Out" saw Tony and his crew running a classic "bust-out scam" on Tony's high school pal turned degenerate gambler, David Scatino, played by Terminator 2's Robert Patrick. The plan involved the gang running up huge debts on Davey's sporting goods store's lines of credit with no intention of paying them back. It's a smaller-scale version of the same basic business model currently employed, fully legally, by private equity companies. Almost 20 years and one month to the day since it first aired, Matt and Vince are joined by producer and TV personality Nando Vila (The Naked Truth, Happy Ending, The Young Turks) to discuss this episode in Pod Yourself A Gun 210. We provide the cultural context in The Wayback Machine, run through storylines in Bada-B Stories, translate slang with Stevie B in Gabba Vafongool, identify cultural reference points in It's The 90s, and figure out who "Da Real Gangsta" is. Along the way, we discuss our favorite and least favorite scenes and try, desperately, unsuccessfully, to get Matt to stop saying "tiddies." It's fine, The Sopranos was an R-rated show, why shouldn't our Sopranos rewatch podcast be an R-rated show? As always, ours is the first and only Sopranos rewatching podcast on the internet and if you disagree with us you are wrong and a liar. Please leave us a five star review on iTunes because we love you. Email us at frotcast@gmail.com, leave us voicemails at 415 275 0030, and subscribe to our other podcast at patreon.com/frotcast.

209: From Where To Eternity, With Emily Fleming From Good Mythical Morning

This week on Pod Yourself A Gun, the internet's first and only Sopranos rewatch podcast [citation needed], we're going back 20 years and one month to March 12, 2000, the premiere of "From Where To Eternity," episode 9 of season 2 (209) of the Sopranos. Helping us discuss, we have Emily Fleming from Good Mythical Morning. Written by Michael Imperioli, "From Where To Eternity" sees Christopher waking up from his coma after being shot by Sean Gismonte and Matt Bevilacqua, having been clinically dead for an entire minute. Chrissy claims to have seen a vision of hell, which is actually an Irish bar called "The Emerald Piper," where every day is St. Patrick's Day and the Irish win every bet. Meanwhile, Carmela hears about Ralphie Rutoldo's Brazilian goomad and wants Tony to get a vasectomy, and Pauly has his own run-in with the supernatural, thanks to a psychic and later a priest. Later, Tony and Big Pussy decide what to do with Matt Bevilacqua. In a bit of life imitating art, Lillo Branc...

208: Full Leather Jacket, with Karl Hess

Hey, everyone, it's time for your favorite Sopranos podcast ever, Pod Yourself A Gun. The world's ONLY Sopranos podcast (that's not hosted by a former cast member nor by people who respect prestige TV). This week Vince and Matt are joined by comedian, podcaster, Cooking Channel TV show host and huge Sopranos fan Karl Hess as they discuss Sopranos season 2 episode 8 (208) "Full Leather Jacket." AKA the most Seinfeld-ass episode of the Sopranos of all time. It's mostly about how Richie Aprile gives Tony a jacket as a gift and Tony insults him by not wearing the jacket. Seriously, that's like the biggest storyline in the episode. It's bizarre and forgettable and a pleasure to talk about with Karl. Here is a bit more info on the episode. SYNOPSIS: "Although Richie is miffed at Tony for forcing him to build a ramp for the pizza-parlor owner he paralyzed, he decides to make a peace offering. Unhappy with their lowly status as Christopher's lackeys, Sean and Matt decide to pledge their all...

207: D-Girl, with Brandie Posey

Hey everyone! Another week into the Coronavirus quarantine and your boys Matt and Vince have nothing but time to Zoom chat about The Sopranos with all of their friends. Lucky you! This week our guest is comedian Brandie Posey of the podcast Lady 2 Lady. This is the first time she has ever watched an episode of the Sopranos to completion and boy did Matt and Vince pick a perfect one. From season 2, episode 7, "D-Girl," which originally premiered February 27th, 2000. This episode isn't just one of the funniest episodes of The Sopranos so far, it's incredibly relevant to both Brandie and Matt's life mired in the drab realities of Hollywood and the entertainment industry. Whom amongst us hasn't had the fate of our careers decided by a 20-something executive with no creative bone in their body and who name drops constantly? Very relatable. SYNOPSIS With Anthony Jr.'s confirmation approaching, Tony and Carmela find their son's growing apathy a cause for concern. Meanwhile, Christopher's i...

Hey everyone, hope you are having a great time locked in quarantine for the foreseeable future. Luckily for you, this means you get to enjoy some more of your favorite Sopranos podcast. This week, we invited Sean Keane (Roundball Rock podcast) to watch season 2, episode 6 "The Happy Wanderer" - which is Tony's succinct little pet name describing all the obliviously joyful people he wants to murder.

David uses his high school connections with Tony in order to get a seat at the "executive game" where he ends up 45 boxes of ziti in the hole. Meanwhile, Meadow and Eric are rehearsing for cabaret night at their school and Meadow desperately wants to sing a solo rather than a duet.
