306: “University,” With Brendan

EAre You Not Bread Pies Now? Pod Yourself a Gun covers The Sopranos season 3 episode 6, "University" On this week’s episode of Pod Yourself a Gun, one of the surviving co-founders of the Filmdrunk Frotcast joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season 3 episode 6, "University." Brendan is on the show and Marone! He’s a big-a meatball! The episode features one of the best one-episode characters in The Sopranos' run, Tracee. Poor, sweet Tracee. Ralphie could never love her as much as he loved the movie Gladiator (remember when that guy gets hit with the spike thing and chunks of his head go flying? That was so phat). Really there are a lot of examples of men and boys being bad in their own unique ways in this episode. Ralphie is an absolute psycho, Georgie at the Bada Bing is making the girls do him personal favors to get into the VIP room, and we learn Noah is a limo-liberal f*ckboi. Come to this week’s podcast for the titties and meat analysis you know and love, but stay for the premiere of what will be remembered as the Western canon’s most influential Sopranos-inspired Kinks parody song.

305: “Another Toothpick” with Jay Gordon

EMatt and Vince are joined by Sopranos twitter luminary and fsckd podcast host Jay Gordon (@jaydestro) to talk about one of his favorite episodes of the Sopranos, season 3 episode 5, Another Toothpick. Not only did Jay watch the episode in preparation for the show, he took notes and he’s not afraid to refer to them. Jay understands rule #1 of Pod Yourself a Gun: when you want respect from the pod, you give respect to the pod. Like an Am/Pm on the Jersey turnpike, this episode has too much good stuff and a bunch of guidos. Carmela and Dr. Melfi finally meet face-to-face during a couples counseling session, Tony is bad in a familiar way (racism), good in an unexpected way (gives a dying man a sense of purpose), and Bobby Bacala Sr. takes Mustang Sally for one last ride with a Marb Red. On top of all that, we get Artie Buco’s disastrous friendzone-cementing dinner with Adriana. The scene is discussed at length in 2020 without a single utterance of the word simp, and someone deserves a Whitman’s Sampler for that restraint. The star of the episode is a toss-up between Burt Young as Bobby Bacala Sr. and Artie Buco’s divorced-guy earring (he’s had it for years - he just doesn’t wear it a lot).

304: “Employee Of The Month,” With Francesca Fiorentini

EIn this week's episode of Pod Yourself a Gun, Matt and Vince are joined by Francesca Fiorentini (@franfio) from MSNBC, AJ+, and the Bitchuation Room podcast to try to find an entertaining but still respectful way to discuss Dr. Melfi's rape scene in Season 3, episode 4 of the Sopranos, "Employee of the Month." It's a polarizing episode from the gabagoolden age of the Sopranos with enough psychotherapy talk to really piss Vince off. The episode also features Ralphie Cifaretto and Jackie Aprile Jr. bonding over a beating, Janice's definitely real plans to make a documentary about Livia's generation and their music, Melfi's Roman dog dreams, and Furio's sensitive side. "We donna have-a the pope joke. Donna translate." Should Melfi have used Tony to get the revenge she wanted? Put your answer in a five star review on Apple Podcasts and/or wherever you get your podcasts. (-Description by Brent Flyberg)

303: "Fortunate Son" With Carey O'Donnell

EThis week on Pod Yourself A Gun, Matt and Vince welcome television writer and co-host of the Sexy Unique Podcast Carey O'Donnell (@ecareyo) to the pod to discuss episode 3 of season 3 of the Sopranos "Fortunate Son" - an episode in which Chris gets made. "Fortunate Son" marks the beginning of what I would consider to be the gabbagool age of the Sopranos, which is the same as a golden age but better. In this episode, Chris gets made and struggles with the increased responsibilities, Tony discovers that much of his panic attacks are meat-based, AJ struggles with feelings of being a real dumdum, and Janice straight up steals Svetlana's prosthetic leg in order to get back musical theater records. It's a fantastic episode in the middle of a monumental season. See, sometimes we actually LIKE the Sopranos. Oh and Chrissy robs a Jewel concert in a Scream mask. Fucking epic. Anyway, please leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts and/or wherever you get your podcasts.

302: “Proshai, Livushka” With Brodie Reed

ESopranos season three continues on Pod Yourself A Gun this week with a discussion of "Proshai, Livushka," episode 302 and the second part of a two-episode premiere that originally aired March 4th, 2001. Our guest this week is Brodie Reed (named a "best up-and-coming comedian" by Vulture), host of the Dark Weeb and Male Gaze podcasts. Brodie joins your regular hosts Matt Lieb from Newsbroke/AJ+ and Vince Mancini from Uproxx/FilmDrunk to discuss arguably the greatest Sopranos episode there is. In this episode (SPOILERS TO FOLLOW, DO NOT @ ME) Livia dies, we meet both Svetlana the gruff nurse and Noah Tenenbaum, Meadow's film buff pseudo boyfriend, help AJ with his Robert Frost assignment, and try to understand Christopher's position on fingerprints at a truly epic funeral for Livia (where Janice, against all odds, once again monopolizes the conversation). We tend to love the funny episodes and this one is surely one of the funniest. I absolutely love this episode of the Sopranos (whaddya gonna do? ...at least she didn't suffer) and I hope you love this Pod Yourself A Gun episode just as much. Nay, twice as much. In fact if you don't love it, maybe you should get some therapy. As always, please leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts and/or wherever you get your podcasts.

301: Mr. Ruggiero's Neighborhood

EWe open season three of Pod Yourself A Gun discussing the season three premiere of The Sopranos. Mr. Ruggiero's Neighborhood, the 27th episode of The Sopranos, originally premiered on March 4, 2001, as the first part of a two-part season premiere, directed by Allen Coulter and written by series creator David Chase. In the Season Three premiere, Agent Harris and his team concoct an elaborate new plan to wiretap the Soprano home now that Pussy is singing with the fishes instead of for the feds. This episode is a bit of a meta look at the FBI as they, essentially, watch The Sopranos. Ay, da FBI is just like us! It includes the introduction of a braless tennis instructor from Iceland and a mash-up of The Police and Henry Mancini that, curiously, seems to be the main character of the entire episode. It's full of extremely on-the-nose music throughout. BADA B STORIES -The FBI is buggin' -Patty Parisi is chuggin' -Tony is thuggin' -Meadows roommate needs a huggin' -AJ is shruggin' -Waterhe...

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.
