Is Creed the first boxing movie about a black boxer? The fact that none of us can think of another one says enough. This week we talk Creed, and about Hoodslam, the pro wrestling event we went to in Oakland, play the royalty-free music freestyle challenge, discuss The Big Short, and get an update from Ben, now that he’s back in the country. This week’s Frotcrew: Vince Mancini, Matt Lieb, and SF comedian by way of Somerville, Massachusetts, Stevie Post.

24:15 – The Royalty-Free Music Freestyle Challenge. Matt Lieb debuts his Randy Newman impression.
28:20 – HOODSLAM. Matt and I discuss attending our first live pro wrestling event since making Whoop Dreams at the Gathering of the Juggalos.

44:24 – Matt talks about his time in terrestrial radio, and this week’s meme: “If radio had been invented after the internet, it would be the biggest thing ever.”

1:03:40 – Ben discusses his travels through Europe.
1:10:50 – Matt becomes extremely adamant about preferring the “perfect woman, but with a penis” over a masculine man, but with a vagina. “I’m not attracted to men, but I am not un-attracted to dicks.”
