The best Sopranos podcast

By Gemma Hornsby - Feb 23 2019
Read more
This is by far the best of all the Sopranos podcasts out there. I wanted more than just plot summaries and facts about show production, and these two give me lots to consider. They go really into symbolism, deeper character traits/arcs, and do some theorizing that I haven't seen anywhere else. They are totally unpretentious and I feel like I'm just having a conversation along with them about a show we all love. Keep recording!

Really insightful
