Frotcast 323: Oscars Preview w Matt Ufford

It’s Oscars week, and the Frotcast is breaking down the nominees, the history, the betting odds… haha just kidding, we’re helping you plan your drinking games and breaking down the last movies we saw. Joining hosts Vince Mancini from FilmDrunk and Brendan are Matt Lieb from AJ+/The Star Wars Show and SB Nation’s Matt Ufford. We discuss whether liking La La Land makes you super white, the possible Anti-Semitism-washing of Cinderella Man, and whether Brendan was wrong for loving Braveheart. Finally, we answer your emails about life choices and baldness. Enjoy and Frot on!

Frotcast 321: Fifty Shades Darker, and Chemo Couch Time With Ben

This week on the Frotcast, we talk Sundance, Kellyanne Conway’s lost stand-up set, Fifty Shades Darker, this season’s top five TV shows, and of course, the Royalty Freestyle. Matt Lieb and Vince Mancini are in the Frotquarters, joined by comedian Jane Harrison in her last Frotcast before she moves to Chicago for her big new job at The Onion. Also, it’s the return of Ben! Ben’s been out having some cancerous organs removed, but on the upside, he’s been watching lots of TV while recovering — hence, Chemo Couch Time, with Ben, in which he names this season’s best television shows, from Westworld to Taboo. Enjoy, and Frot on! Donate at
