Wesley Strick joins Vik in studio to discuss his reaction to watching The Sopranos pilot episode for the first time. Wesley wrote the screenplay for Martin Scorsese’s Cape Fear. Will Janowitz, who played Finn on The Sopranos, and who also was a guest on this pod, connected Wesley and Vik after becoming aware that Cape Fear was Vik's favorite Scorsese picture. Wesley had always wanted to get into the show but was was unable during its original run because of a small thing called parenting little kids. But being a guest on the pod was a bit of a catalyst for him and the precursor to a wonderful conversation. The Sopranos stuff is about 35 minutes in...but if you’re a Scorsese, DeNiro, or Cape Fear fan....the first half is sure to delight. In addition to writing Cape Fear, Wesley has had a long and transcendent career as a writer and producer in Hollywood. A few of his other projects include Arachnophobia and more recently, The Man in the High Castle. ❤️If you love the pod, you can support it by visiting: glow.fm/podabing 🖼Follow @podabing on Instagram for a pictorial and caption companion to the show. 🏆If you'd like to participate in our Sopranos Trivia series, DM @podabing on Instagram All archived episodes are available, for free, at https://podabing.show and anywhere you listen to podcasts.

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
