The popular podcast “Talking Sopranos” has come to TV — to Max, the streaming outlet for HBO, where “The Sopranos” originally ran.

Cohosted by “Sopranos” alums Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa — who played Christopher Moltisanti and Bobby Baccalieri, respectively — the podcast began in 2020 and ended in 2021 after 91 episodes. The pair looked back at all 86 episodes of the show, breaking them down with the help of guest stars from the “Sopranos” including Lorraine Bracco, David Chase, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Aida Turturro, and John Ventimiglia.

Max is airing edited video of the trivia- and inside-story-filled podcast, with the two actors and guests talking, and it has added in relevant clips from the show. So when the pair discuss a specific scene, we get to watch it. The TV show also features a new bonus episode on the “Sopranos” prequel film, “The Many Saints of Newark.”
