Fantastic Deep Dives

The clarity that Vik brings to bear on the Sopranos has been truly enlightening for me. The humor and fun but relevant asides are a real treat. I may not always get the NBA analogies yet it doesn’t dim the great insights.

Bravo

Vim, this podcast changed my life almost as much as the series. Well done my man…well done.

Truly a love letter to the Sopranos

I’ve been listening to this podcast since the start and it’s become - much like the show itself - an old friend that never fails to deliver. Thank you Vik for making my favorite Sopranos podcast ever, and I’ve listened to many of them! You truly are the GOAT, and I’m looking forward to more from your new show The Regularness.
