287: Drew Magary, Crying Jordan, and The Legend of LaDasha



This week, we talk about the legend of LaDasha (the apocryphal little girl named La-a), the Crying Jordan meme, and welcome GQ/Deadspin columnist Drew Magary, who tells us about his Chopped win, thumb dance, his new book, and whether I can blame him for the rise of Donald Trump. Hey! Leave us reviews on iTunes! We need them to leave!

2:05 – The peculiarly pervasive legend of LaDasha. 
4:00 – We asked our listeners for a “previously on the Frotcast” montage, and they came through.
7:15 – Back to LaDasha. Did Key & Peele try to pass off LaDasha as real thing that happened, or was it a knowing reference to the dumb legend they were making fun of? Discuss.
13:20 – Drew Magary of GQ and Deadspin joins us via Skype. We discuss the Crying Jordan meme, Drew’s now-famous Chopped win (and accompanying thumb dance), and his new book, The Hike (you can order now on Amazon!).
49:16 – Batman Returns, and the guy who played Lattimer in The Program doing an incredible Christopher Walken impression the entire movie. 
1:05:15 – The story of the six-year-olds writing the Zootopia critic about ruining the Tomatometer
1:16:06 – The story of the scientists who discovered that people are turned on by robot privates.
