Frotcast 331: Alan Sepinwall, Peak TV, and Peak Conspiracy

This week on the Frot, I chat with TV critic Alan Sepinwall about Breaking Bad and Peak TV, and we talk about Alex Jones and the Berkeley bike lock bandit conspiracy (or not). We also talk Veep, Silicon Valley’s Papa Roach joke, and The Leftovers. Panel includes Matt Lieb from AJ+, Brendan, and comedian Jane Harrison, who had her first lesbian experience this past week and is now a squirting truther. Hooray! Enjoy and Frot on!

Frotcast 330: Fate Of The Furious, With Joanna Robinson And Brian Grubb

As our former co-host Bret says, “I don’t actually believe most people want freedom or fulfillment. Most people want to die barfing from eating a thousand Doritos Locos Snickers Icecream Tacos while jerking off to a giant bug zapper that says ‘TITS.'” It seems to me that this observation applies especially well to The Fate Of The Furious, a movie so excessive it’s kind of exhausting. At least, that’s what I think. My guests Brian Grubb (formerly Danger Guerrero) of Uproxx and Joanna Robinson of Vanity Fair are still onboard for all of Dom Toretto’s shenanigans, no matter how fast nor furious. This week we talk the value of Roman and Tej, Russian submarine hacking, racing for pinks, and ultimately, Juicero and the saga of Silicon Valley’s strange $700 juice squeezing machine. Hack the planet and keep frotting a quarter mile at a time. Donate at

Frotcast 328: Murdercast, with ‘Down City’ Author Leah Carroll

Leah Carroll’s mom was murdered when she was four by a man who would go on to receive protection from the Rhode Island Police, until he died himself just a few years later of a heart attack during a road rage incident on his way to go skydiving while carrying a pocket full of cocaine. And that’s not even the craziest part of the story. We hear the tale first hand from Leah, who just published Down City: A Daughter’s Story of Love, Memory, and Murder. This week’s Frot-crew includes Vince, Brendan, and comedians Joey Avery and Matt Lieb. We also try to cast the inevitable S-Town movie, and talk Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi ad.
