“Let me tell ya something. Nowadays, everybody’s gotta go to shrinks, and counselors, and go on “Sally Jessy Raphael” and talk about their problems. Whatever happened to Gary Cooper? The strong, silent type. That was an American. He wasn’t in touch with his feelings. He just did what he had to do. See, what they didn’t know was once they got Gary Cooper in touch with his feelings that they wouldn’t be able to shut him up! And then it’s “dysfunction this”, and “dysfunction that”, and dysfunction ma fangul!”

Pop quiz…

Who said that?

No, not Bob Hope.
Not Mitch Kumstein.
It was Tony Soprano.
The Patron Saint of Waste Management Consultation in New Jersey.

On this episode of One Show, One Drink (part of the What We Watch When Drink family of podcasts), The Boys sit around the table outside Satriale’s Pork Store with a glass of Chianti, a little salami, some prosciut’ and mozzarell’, maybe some gabagool, and break some bread over the very first episode of The Sopranos from 1999.

Iconic, funny, dark, and thought provoking, The Sopranos is much like this podcast: a cultural inflection point in American television history ushering in the beginning of prestige programming. And there’s lots of killing.

So rip off a piece of focaccia, dip it in some olive oil and balsamic, and spend twenty-one minutes with your favorite soldiers on another episode of One Show, One Drink. Mangia! Mangia!

Just don’t sit near a window.
