We talk to the critics and authors of The Sopranos Sessions, Matt Zoller Seitz (New York Magazine) and Alan Sepinwall (Rolling Stone), about the meaning of the ending, the evils of parallel parking, the importance of ambiguity in art, what makes David Chase tick, and the living legacy of the late actor and Very Hungry Caterpillar fan James Gandolfini - his son Michael Gandolfini, who plays Tony Soprano as a young man in The Many Saints of Newark - 7 years after his father's sudden death.

Once again, we're joined by The Sopranos Sessions authors and TV critics Matt Zoller Seitz (New York Magazine) and Alan Sepinwall (Rolling Stone), and we're also hearing from a new voice: Mel Magazine contributor Chingy Nea, whose article “The Sopranos Belongs to the Gays Now” examines the show's surprisingly queer underpinnings. We also look at how Tony's issues with self-definition reflect our own issues as a society, as two decades worth of new viewers use the benefit of hindsight to unpack what these character studies and the authorial choices of David Chase have ultimately said about the downfall of earth itself.

Tell Me About Your Father's Sopranos series continues with the second episode of our four-part deep dive into the heart of darkness of our favorite TV dad Tony Soprano, with our guests Matt Zoller Seitz and Alan Sepinwall, authors of The Sopranos Sessions. We discuss Season 3 and 4's' portrayal of violence against women, the breakdown of Tony and Carmella's marriage, Tony's connection to his daughter (and her tip-toeing towards an awakening about who her father is), his disdain for his misunderstood dumb-dumb son and heroin addict nephew, and his love for a horse. All this underlines the generational cycle of abuse, bathed in the harsh light of Tony's hypocrisy and pathological self-centeredness. What does it mean for a father to betray his family within the Family? Could Tony even begin to know?
