A podcast dedicated to The Sopranos; this time focusing on the wildest theories, the hidden conspiracies, the supernatural, the deeper symbolism, eggsistentialism and of course the sacred AND propane.
Some people like The Sopranos with some pulp, others with no pulp. This, is for hardcore gabagooligans, this is WITH PULP.

Episode 5: The Many References of The Many Saints of Newark
Today you get an extra special episode, and extra long. I go into excruciating detail looking at every callback, every reference, every nuance, as many details and a bunch of cr*p that you may or may not have noticed in the prequel to The Sopranos, The Many Saints of Newark.
I'll be explaining all the important aspects of the plot that you may have overlooked, I'll be throwing in some of my own opinions whether you like it or not and NATURALLY I'll be addressing some of the conspiracies and theories that are already circulating the internet surrounding Uncle Sal and "who actually shot Dickie Moltisanti?".
I almost called this The Sh*tmuncher's guide to The Many Saints of Newark, but eventually changed my mind. I, unlike David Chase, am not afraid to insult the audience, but I do dive into the many reasons why many people hated it, but there's no hate in the Pulp Club, only love.
I realise I've already missed a couple o' three details and callback references but I tried my best to get this under 2 hours, so sue me. Sorry for ruining your day. It's done.
Episode 4: The Eggisode (Part 2)
We continue with our journey through this breakdown of every egg reference in The Sopranos, the final of this two parter (make sure to listen to Ep3 or this won't make any sense).
We're covering more things deathly, the sinister, the miscellaneous and then we take a deeper, darker turn, probably for the worst into territory that no Sopranos podcast would DARE to go. It seems only I have the guts, the balls, the sheer audacity to even bring any of this up. I sent myself to the precipice of an emotional breakdown over this episode. You're welcome.
I finally get round to finishing one conspiracy theory I previous left you hanging with, I'll even be going into the true meaning of "make my nephew an egg" and an interesting fact about my damn twitter account you may never have realised before.
Episode 3: The Eggisode (Part 1)
Now that we have all the boring "final episode" business out of the way, the leash is officially off and I finally get to go wild with one theme that I feel very passionate about and that is the recurring symbolism of eggs in The Sopranos. Whether you're a new or old fan, you must have noticed these easter eggs popping up in the strangest of places, but what do they mean? In this two-part deep dive, I've found every egg reference (I think?) and I've placed them into 6 categories, by their most common denomination and then take a look at how they interconnect/foreshadow recurring themes, plots, relationship dynamics etc. Whether you want to take this seriously or in jest, that up to you, but I'll be clear, eggs alone are the only reason I decided to do this podcast so you KNOW the pulp is gonna be so thick in this episode, there will barely be any juice left.
Episode 2: The Final Final Episode (Part 2)
Continuing on from last episode's visual breakdown of 'Made In America', we'll be shifting our focus onto the story/narrative and covering what may or may not have happened in that final scene, trying to answer the most tiresome question ever; "Is tony alive or dead?"
We'll be covering all possible angles; weighing up the pros and cons of some classic theories, I'll be shitting on some terrible internet opinions and injecting my own conspiracies but as always I'm gonna be delving deep into the pulp.
Onion rings, The White Shoe Conspirators, The Pauluminati, death as the continuum of life as the continuum of death, Lynch, Kubrick, and a whole lot more PULP!
Episode 1: The Final Episode (Part 1)
What better way to start a Sopranos podcast than by starting right at the very end? This is part 1 of a very lengthy two-part deep dive into the final episode, "Made In America". We'll be looking at the visual symbolism than runs throughout this episode, scene-by-scene, right up to the very final moments in a way you might not have looked at it before; stepping away from the narrative of the episode and coming at it from a cinematographical angle. Once you get past the first 10 minutes of me complaining about Steve Schirripa that is.
WARNING: This is not a podcast for the average pedestrian viewer of The Sopranos, this is for the superfans who enjoy the stranger, deeper substratum that lies beneath the surface, the fans who've watched 10 times or more and still find new details, for those who like their Sopranos WITH PULP.
