Frotcast 420: A Very Sugar Ray Breakup, With Jason Webb And Chase McNeil

That’s right, we’ve reached 420 Frotcasts! Almost as nice as when we hit 69. Sadly Matt has more than a decade sober and I could not convince him to get “hella baked, bro” in honor of this arbitrary milestone. What we do have for you is an action-packed episode featuring everyone’s favorite Southerner, Jason Webb, and fresh-faced Frotcast virgin Chase McNeil. That’s the Frotcast for you, full of farts and in your hearts.

This week we’re discussing how the gig economy has finally come to the world of (psuedo?) celebrity. Can you guess how much it costs to get Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath to break up with your boyfriend for you? It’s less than you think! We also talk about how you have to go see the Sonic the Hedgehog movie now to reward the studio for spending millions to appease the fans. Matt got to see the downsides of being a huge star like Michael Rapaport when he opened for Rap this weekend, and later he tells us how he hates his job and spends at least 10 minutes trying to get fired. We get a late start on Hunter Biden being the greatest failson of all time, and Donald Trump helps us win the war on Thanksgiving.

Every morning there’s a Frotcast hanging in the corner of my girlfriend’s four-points bed... Please subscribe to our Patreon for #BONUS #CONTENT including our live riff of Cobra at You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.

TEASER: Frotcast Live Riff Of Cobra, Starring Sylvester Stallone

On this month’s Frotcast live riff episode, we’re riffing on Cobra, the 1986 Sylvester Stallone classic that apparently began as Beverly Hills Cop and ended up as Cannon Films exploitation movie in which Sly takes out a whole gang of axe-wielding rapists. The full episode is available to our $20 Patrons. Join us? You know you want to!

Frotcast 419: Trapped In A Lighthouse with Brendan

Keepin’ secrets, are ye?? That’s right, this week on the Frotcast we’ve reunited with our old pal Brendan to discuss a film that’s firmly in the Frotcast wheelhouse. I’m talking about The Lighthouse, starring Willem Dafoe, who Brendan once imagined had a “gnarled penis” and has long been one of his favorite impressions, behind Michael Caine and Mark Ruffalo. Brendan also had a nautical childhood in which his father taught him the NATO alphabet and forced him to sail. When he texted me about The Lighthouse I had to look up what “scrimshaw” was. How is it in Matt’s wheelhouse? Well, it turns out it’s basically an entire movie about a guy who is mad because he’s so horny. Matt hates being horny! He also loves parroting movie lines of old-timey curmudgeons and in William Dafoe’s “wickie” he has found his new Daniel Plainview.

SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS! Yes, this episode has lots of “spoilers.” Personally I think The Lighthouse is impossible to spoil and you’ll be fine if you haven’t seen it, but I don’t want anyone whining. It would’ve been weird not to discuss “plot points,” because The Lighthouse has like three of them and they don’t really matter. In any case, listen at yer own risk, ye dogs.

We wrap things up with your voicemails and some texts from Bret. Now, time to drink exactly one beer and call 911.

Teaser: Matt And Vince Talk ‘Parasite’

This week’s Bonus Frotcast and all Bonus Frotcasts are available at You can add our premium feed to your regular podcast app.

On this week’s bonus Frotcast, Matt and I are discussing what seems objectively to be one of the year’s best films, Parasite from Bong Joon Ho. A family of grifters (the Kims) lives in a semi-underground apartment where they steal wifi and have to chase away drunks trying to piss on their windows, until they find a rich family (the Parks) who just might be their meal ticket — provided the Kims can con their way into the Parks’ home and into their hearts. There’s only one thing standing in their way: some other poor people. It’s a comedy of a manners, it’s a class story, it’s weird as hell sometimes and super funny, we loved it. We’re discussing all the things you may have missed and reading Armond White’s review to find out why he’s one of two negative reviews on RottenTomatoes for it.
