Sopranos analysis at its finest

I’m enjoying my 4th time through the Sopranos with Poda Bing as a watch-along companion. Vik and the team find tons of fascinating details and Easter eggs within the show, and are entertaining and funny while they do it. Interviews are also great; plenty of surprising stories about the show and its subsequent culture that you would never expect.

My Go To Sopranos Podcast

At 1st I had started to listen both Poda Bing & Talking Sopranos & truthfully, this one is waaay better. I understand that Michael Imperioli has some background in acting, directing, etc. However, Steve Schrippa I believe it is (Bobby Bacala) do too much talking about outside stuff, Michaels Broadway stuff, who’s he worked with, etc etc so that eats up A LOT of time. However you guys don’t mess around, some background stuff.. maybe and then it’s right into the episode discussion along with the best part.. Audio clips from the show. Keep up the good work

All due respect...

I can’t say enough about Vic and his Poda Bing podcast. His in depth, scene by scene breakdowns have given new life to my love of the Sopranos. His passion and dedication to each episode lead to insightful observations. Thank you Vic! Getting to re-watch the Sopranos after your analysis has been truly a gift!!
