Listen to Stitcher
 

Today, Gavin and Hannibal host a truly special episode of The Sopranos Show, in which they interview former Sopranos staff writer and executive producer, Frank Renzulli! Frank is responsible for penning some of the greatest episodes from the first three seasons including  ‘Nobody Knows Anything,’ ‘The Happy Wanderer,’ and ‘Amour Fou.’ In a conversation that covers all aspects of the making of the series, Frank details what it was like to grow up surrounded by real wiseguys, and how this informed characters and scenes in the show. Plus he recalls the hilarious experience of meeting David Chase for the first time, and highlights the invaluable contributions of the show’s actors. A huge thanks to Frank for joining us today, and Gavin and Hannibal will be back next week to cover the premiere of Season 5!
