    412: Eloise, with Desi Jedeikin from Hollywood Crime Scene

    Paulie Walnuts presents: A Goomba’s Guide to Loving Your Mom. 



    Fresh from the oven like some scones Carmela Soprano baked for the “Fabio of The Sopranos,” as guest Desi Jedeikin from the Hollywood Crime Scene podcast calls Furio, there’s a piping hot new episode of Pod Yourself a Gun. It’s about dang time Matt and Vince got Desi on the show, as she introduced former guest and Hollywood Crime Scene co-host Rachel Fischer to The Sopranos. Her and the boys are talking about season four, episode twelve, "Eloise."



    This episode is more fun than taking a bunch of old ladies to see The Producers on Broadway, and if you say otherwise I will personally come to your place and smother you to death with a pillow like Paulie does to that old crone Minnie. Or, at least I’ll settle the dispute they had on the podcast about whether or not it’s possible to smother someone to death with a pillow. Don’t make me find out. You look like you have weak lungs.



    To complement the pillow talk, there is also a bangin’ Bada-B story song parody about standing too close to a helicopter while urinating, and a discussion of Paulie’s performative mom love. He loves Nucci, but also he needs everyone in his immediate vicinity to know how much he loves Nucci. It’s sweet but gross — kind of like your mom.



    Now that you have been thoroughly berated, tell us how great we are in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

Also, we talk about newly divorced dad, Bill Gates, and whether Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos will become the superior divorced dad billionaire super villain. Beyond Bill and Bezos there's also Ben, Affleck that is, who got "caught" (if you can call it that) doing regular ass divorced dad stuff like tryna holla at girls on dating apps. Not the trash dating apps piggies like you use, the special ones for celebrities, that you can only be on if you're a big star like Ben Affleck or some random Tik Toker who will share videos of Ben Affleck tryna holla.

    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

    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.

    409: Whoever Did This, with Mike Falzone from Dynamic Banter!

    409: Whoever Did This, with Mike Falzone from Dynamic Banter!

    RIP Pie-O-My

    Take a break from studying for your dementia test to listen to the latest Pod Yourself A Gun with comedian and podcaster Mike Falzone from the Welcome To Our Podcast and Dynamic Banter podcasts as well as Final Space on Adult Swim. Mike joins Matt and Vince to talk about the Sopranos season four episode nine, Whoever Did This.

    Definitely the only episode of The Sopranos to feature a goat staring directly into camera, it’s also noteworthy for a couple significant deaths - a horse and a jackass (insert rimshot here).

    Besides the deaths, there are a couple other close calls. Ralphie’s son Justin takes an arrow to the throat playing Lord of the Rings and ends up in the hospital. If only his father had been more present and taught him how to play Gladiator instead, the kid would not be a vegetable. Is it okay to call someone a vegetable? As Matt points out in the pod, it feels wrong to say, but no one bats an eye.

    Junior takes a tumble down the stairs and hits his head pretty hard. He’s responsive but doesn’t seem the same. He’s still got jokes though. Like Mike & Vince mention, old Italian men go to the grave doing bits and stock one-liners.

    If you ever want to fake a mental illness to get out of prison, write something unhinged in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts to use as evidence later.

Amazing podcast!

Solid B+

HappyBard ,

Good Podcast

It’s too bad that this is the only Sopranos podcast because I’d really like to hear serious people (perhaps cast members??) discussing the motifs, the themes, the symbolism, the art of it all… Unfortunately no such podcast exists so this one is a pretty good compromise!

Che figata

Easily the funniest podcast I listen to. Good analysis, good cultural context (Remember Then!) and dumb jokes. (Chef's kiss)
