Twollie Vanderworf! Tokyo Sexwale! Taco BM Monster! Dr. Loki Skylizard! These are all people’s real names, uncovered every year by the folks at NameOfTheYear.com. Using their 2015 Name Of the Year bracket, we all chose our Name Of The Year fantasy teams, with guest and fantasy sports expert Matt Ufford of The Inactives podcast. After that, we discuss competitive Paul Walker grieving among the Furious 7 cast, and go down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theory websites.

This week on the Frotcast, we talk The Jinx and Robert Durst. The appeal of the show, is it closure or characters? Or is it just that Robert Durst is nuts in so many different ways that it seems like there’s a new one every week? And why would people feel closure at the end of the show, because the weird guy was talking to himself? Wouldn’t any rational human being know how did it from the very beginning? Did you hear the story about his rubber mask? About him killing his dogs? So we talk about that for a while, and compare it to Serial. Then we bring on Laremy Legel to talk about 30 for 30’s I Hate Christian Laettner and tell us about The Divergent Series: Insurgent. As Bret says, “This is the dumbest book I’ve ever had told to me.”
Matt also tells the story about a listener trying to make Matt look bad so he could have sex with his girlfriend. No snitching!
The usual crew couldn’t get together in the Frotquarters this week, so in lieu of a regular frotcast, I’m posting audio of FilmDrunk interviews with Homegrown Video’s Farrell Timlake, Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking author Anya Von Bremzen, and a couple quickies from the AVN Awards. Sorry, and I hope you enjoy these! As always, email us at email@example.com, leave us a voice mail at 415 275 0030
This week, we welcome Somerville, Mass’s finest (don’t say Boston…), comedian Steve Post to talk about the Edward Snowden documentary CitizenFour (as well as the upcoming Oliver Stone biopic and Oliver Stone movies in general). We also Skype in Ben from Costa Rica to talk about his Kickstarter project, his post-testicular cancer vision quest and current swing through Central America. He updates us on staying fit and the backpacking ladies, we get in deep to talk about the Oxy epidemic that drove Steve Post to leave Somerville, talk about Matt Lieb’s latest Xfinity commercial and getting “shrunk” in a Nature Valley commercial. Then Steve one-ups him with his story about playing a bartender in a Silicon Valley episode, thanks to his nine years of actual bartending experience.
