This week on the Frotcast, I’m walkin’ heah! Which is to say, we’re talking Gotti, the first mob movie directed by E from Entourage and apparently written by a bot. Former comedian and current owner of Bernadette’s, the dumbest bar in LA, Jim Van Blaricum joins Vince and Matt in the Frotquarters this week. Other topics include: Vince’s trip to the Aspen Food and Wine Classic, The New Yorker’s horny review of The Incredibles 2 (The Incredibles 2: Unlikely Thirst Trap), and a $350 chocolate bar that says “FARTS.” Frot on and enjoy, donate at Patreon.com/Frotcast.

370: ‘Solo’ I Can’t Hear You Boycotting, With Joe Sinclitico And Alison Stevenson

This week on the Frotcast, we’re recording from the new Frotquarters in LA for the first time ever! But we’ve got that same ol’ Frotcast magic, thanks to returning guests comedian Joe Sinclitico and comedienne Alison Stevenson — with Matt Lieb joining remotely and Vince Mancini handling the controls. This week we’re talking ‘Solo,’ sort of, and the weird, Gam3rg8-esque backlash that’s convinced that Kathleen Kennedy is using Star Wars to advance a “feminist agenda.” We also discuss Gringo, the John McAfee documentary about how he likes to kill people and eat poop (seriously, he lets ladies poop in his mouth). And we learn about Alison’s dating life, talk “ghosting,” and all the 21st century relationship etiquette.

Frotcast 368: ‘Meatballs 2: Meat Too,’ With Ben Fritz And Francesca Fiorentini

This week on the Frotcast, Francesca Fiorentini and Matt Lieb from AJ+ join to discuss our haters, the IDF, and Donald Glover’s “This Is America.” I also interviewed Ben Fritz about his new book, The Big Picture, in which he explains the reality of the era of franchises and branded content, and how it came to be this way. It’s a pretty solid listen for anyone who’s ever wondered “why doesn’t Hollywood have any new ideas?” After that, we discuss the Bill Murray “classic,” Meatballs (1979), which I told everyone to watch mistakenly believing it was a classic. …It is not. Though it does lead us into general dicussion of Summer camp, and naturally Matt has embarrassing stories. Enjoy, engage, and Frot on, donate at Patreon.com/Frotcast.

Bonus #Content: Phil Rosenthal Talks ‘Somebody Feed Phil’

So, I know we didn’t do a new show last week, and this week we’re doing a Ben tribute episode that’s going to be Patreon only. We’re getting the whole band back together for that one. Including Bret! So we’re going to do that one Patreon only and donate the proceeds to charity.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share this interview I did with Phil Rosenthal. Phil created Everybody Loves Raymond and he has a new food show out on Netflix, Somebody Feed Phil. I do a lot of these phone interviews and they don’t always make great audio, but I wanted to share this one because Phil is just such a great interview. I can tell he’s good because when I get the transcripts back I barely have to edit anything. He just naturally speaks in complete sentences. He’s great. Enjoy!
