Teaser – Frotcast 446: The Emmys And The Secret



Frotcast 446, now available on Patreon.com/Frotcast. This is just a taste.

Hey everyone. Matt and Vince here and oh boy do we have a doozy of an episode for you this week. In today’s Frotcast we discuss the all important Emmy nominations and all of the online discourse about black representation in the nominees and lack of latinx representation, and how this conversation just lead to everyone ignoring the fact that the Kominisky Method continues to get nominations for no reason.

Also, Vince forced me to watch The Secret: Dare To Dream – possibly one of the most evil movies ever made, right behind Birth of a Nation, Triumph of the Will, and Howard the Duck. In fact, I’m pretty sure that The Secret’s original title was Triumph of the Will. Anyway, it’s a fun episode. Eat up, hogs.


Frotcast 445: Caddyshack 40, Hillary 4 Hour, With Joey Avery



Caddyshack turns 40 this week, and since I had to watch it to write about, I made Matt watch it and talk about it with me and then we invited Joey Avery to discuss it with us. Caddyshack was slightly before our times but we still kind of like it, and I was curious what someone slightly younger, like Joey would think. Like was this just the era that was the first time Boomers got to drink and do drugs on film, or is it actually good beyond that in a way that holds up? So we’ve got that discussion, plus a run down of the latest in movie news, like Hulu getting into the Hillary Clinton fan fiction business and the Vanilla Ice biopic. We hope you love it, and as always, no refunds.

Over on Patreon.com/frotcast, I will be putting my bonus interview with Caddyshack book author Chris Nashawaty, and that will have all kinds of Caddyshack facts and stories and whatnot. Frot on and eat the beans.


TEASER: Frotcast 444: Amber Turd and Other Celeb Love Stories w Francesca Fiorentini



FROM THIS WEEK’S BONUS PATREON-ONLY EPISODE! The full episode is available to our Patreon subscribers at Patreon.com/Frotcast.

[Full Description]

Hey everyone,

Matt Lieb here. While Vince Mancini is off vacationing with his family and somehow leading a normal life from what I see on Instagram, I decided for the first time ever to give all y’all Patreon piggies a Vince-less bonus episode. This week, I invited my best special friend Francesca Fiorentini (Bitchuation Room, MSNBC, my girlfriend) into the frotquarters to discuss other celebrity power couples besides her and me. We talk Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s increasingly hilarious press and legal battles which include allegations of Amber Heard taking a “whooper poop” on the bed, and contrast their terrible relationship with Jada and Will Smith’s cute and painfully modern relationship complete with consensual extra-marital cucking and live stream processing. Me and Francesca like to think we’re somewhere in the middle of this spectrum. It’s a fun episode. Listen to it.

 


TEASER: Frotcast 442, A Terrible Tales From NPR, Plus Eurovision Review, Now Available on Patreon



Howdy! This episode is just a tease, like your sister, but the full episode is available to our Patreon subscribers at Patreon.com/Frotcast. It would be so sick if you became one. So sick, dude. Seriously.

[Full Episode Description]

Hello faithful Frotcast listeners! It’s time for your weekly refill of content slop and I can’t wait for you to dig in. This week, your slop chefs Vince and Matt have served up hot steaming pile of conversations about the brand new Netflix comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga starring Will Ferrel and Rachel McAdams. I don’t wanna spoil the conversation for you but Matt and Vince very much enjoyed the movie and now are hoping to someday move to Iceland and start a new life together. But that’s just a dream.

Anyway, they also talk about reports that Christopher Nolan doesn’t let people sit, Mel Gibson said some bonus anti-semitic shit, tales from NPR and so much more. So dip your fat fucking snouts in that and try not to drown in that shit. Compliments to the chefs.


Frotcast 443: The Thing About Hamilton, With Francesca Fiorentini And Andrew Law



The time has finally come for the Frotcast to discuss Hamilton, a play Matt has seen and loved and thus far failed to convince me (Vince) to watch. UNTIL NOW! Is Hamilton the defining theatrical achievement of our times or some cheesy overhyped schoolhouse rock bullshit?

To join us in this discussion, we have Francesca Fiorentini, host of the Bitchuation Room, founder of Newsbroke on AJ+, and frequent guest on The Young Turks, who once, along with Matt forced me to listen to the Hamilton soundtrack on our way to the Russian River in the back of Matt’s Honda Civic; and Andrew Law, aka IllyBocean on Twitter and cohost of the BoontaVista Podcast, who, like me, was a skeptical Hamilton virgin, BUT has the added hurdle of being an Australian who wasn’t forcefed the Founding Fathers and Constitutional Convention in school.

It’s a spirited discussion, and naturally, Matt turns it into many analingus puns for his Hamilton parody about eating butt, Lumilton.

Sample discussion of geopolitics:

MATT: Wait, Australia has a queen?

ANDREW: The Queen of England, baby. We’re still subjects of the commonwealth.

MATT: Wow, that’s weird!

Hey, we’ve got lots of amazing bonus content, especially these past few weeks, including me and Matt reviewing The King Of Staten Island. Hear them right now by signing up to our Patreon, Patreon.com/Frotcast.


UNLOCKED: Frotcast 436, The Virus Is Canceled, With Kaseem Bentley And Jessica Sele



Over on our Patreon, we have a brand new episode this week for our subscribers, in which we discuss Eurovision Song Contest and a screechingly awful new Tales From NPR. But we can’t deny our piggies their slop, even if they are deadbeat non-subscribing scum (can you be both piggies and scum in the same sentence or is that a mixed metaphor? *you* can, that’s why we love you. deeply.).

This was an episode we originally recorded back in mid-May. Original description:

It’s an all-star Frotcast this week with such classic Frotcast guests as Kaseem Bentley and Jessica Sele. Kaseem, as always, does his best to get us canceled while we discuss all the most pressing events of the day, from the Chrissy Teigen-Alison Roman beef to female bodybuilder erotica to Save The Last Dance, with Michael Jordan and Julia Stiles. We ask Jessica and Kaseem about comedy in the time of quarantine and how they’re coping, and… hell I don’t know, man. The conversation went everywhere and nowhere all at once. Just the way you like it.


TEASER: Frotcast 441, Laremy Is Ir-RESIST-ible



THE FULL VERSION OF THIS FROTCAST IS AVAILABLE FOR OUR PATRONS. BECOME ONE AT PATREON.COM/FROTCAST, AND ENJOY ALL OF OUR BONUS #CONTENT.

This week on the Frotcast, ex-film critic, author of ‘Film Critic,’ and star of ‘Whoop Dreams’ Laremy Legel rejoins Matt and Vince in the Zoom Frotquarters to discuss Jon Stewart’s new movie IRRESISTiBLE, starring  Steve Carell and Rose Byrne as dueling political consultants who wage proxy war in a Wisconsin town. At first we were like “why the hell is this movie called ‘Irresistible?’ But then the title comes up at the end with some creative typography and we were like “Oohhh, that’s why it’s called Irresistible.”

Aaaanyway, we discuss our historic love of Jon Stewart and debate why this movie is getting such bad reviews. On one level, it’s kind of a good movie masquerading as a bad one for two acts, and you could argue that’s a weird move, but on another level it seems like certain people disliked it because it committed some sin against media orthodoxy by pointing out the Democrats are also bad. GRR, BOTH SIDESISM! Anyway, Rose Byrne is great.

After that we discuss Matt getting mistaken for the worst #resistance grifter and whether Alex Jones is actually Dan Carlin’s Wario.


Frotcast 440: You Can’t Afford Jeremy Piven, With Allison Mick



In this week’s Frotcast, Allison Mick returns to the Frot. We discuss my awkward interview with Steve Guttenberg, the pile on over Chris D’Elia (alleged sex pest), and Jeremy Piven’s exhorbitant price for a Zoom call. Oh, and we’re celebrating 10 years of the Frot! In true Frotcast fashion, we didn’t realize it was our 10 year anniversary until almost the very end, and it took us until two days after the actual anniversary to post the show. How on brand is that? Anyway, God bless all of you for sticking with us, and to the newcomers we love you too. So far we’ve only had one host die so I think we’re doing pretty good. Here’s to another 10 years (KILL ME).

Teaser: King Of Staten Island Bonus Review, Plus JK Rowling And Ice Cube



This week’s Frotcast is available on Patreon! Subscribe now to hear the rest of this show and a veritable mountain of bonus content. You can add our premium content to your regular podcast feed! Subscribe at Patreon.com/Frotcast, tell your friends.

In this week’s bonus Frotcast, I had to watch The King Of Staten Island because I’m a movie critic so I forced Matt to watch it with me. Sometimes being a movie critic doesn’t feel like work and other times Spike Lee and Judd Apatow both release 140-minute+ movies on the same weekend. PITY ME! Matt and I discuss Pete Davidson, how this movie could’ve been better, Bill Burr’s shockingly good performance, and why movies always want us to think 20-something year old adult men care who their mom is dating. Gross, man, come on. And then, just when you think we’re through, nope, we got more to talk about. Like, did Ice Cube fall down an Anti-Semitic conspiracy theory rabbit hole this week? And does Just Kidding Rowling, aka JK Rowling coming out as a transphobe retroctively validate us never giving a shit about Harry Potter? There are a couple of accents and everything is pretty dumb but hopefully you don’t have anything better to do and that’s why we love you. Please to enjoy.
