Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa — who played mobsters Christopher Moltisanti and Bobby Baccalieri, respectively, in “The Sopranos” — will launch a podcast about the landmark HBO series, April 6. It is called “Talking Sopranos,” and its thorough, one-episode-per-podcast format means it will be especially useful for those watching the series in its entirety for the first time, or re-watching it.
Imperioli — who worked as a writer and producer on some episodes of the series, in addition to acting in it — and Schirripa “will follow the Sopranos series episode by episode giving fans all the inside info, behind the scenes stories and little-known facts that could only come from someone on the inside,” according to a message on the podcast’s website, talkingsopranos.com.
The message continues: “Talking Sopranos also features interviews with additional cast members, producers, writers, production crew and special guests. Along with talking about the Sopranos, Michael and Steve will also share candid conversations about the entertainment business, their friendship and all the folks they’ve met along the way.”
Here is a trailer in which Imperioli and Schirripa discuss the podcast further:
