Teaser: Frotcast 495, Will Smith’s Weird Sex Life, With Laremy And Joey Avery



This is just a teaser! For the full episode, become a $5 Patron at patreon.com/frotcast!

This week on the Frot, Matt Lieb is in Costa Rica dropping acid with spider monkeys, changing his whole perspective on shit, but in order to fill the mustache-shaped void, we’ve got comedian Joey Avery and Whoop Dreams star Laremy Legel filling in. As for discussion topics, it turns out Steven Seagal isn’t the only celebrity with the unique physiological reaction to arousal. That’s right, we’re talking about Will Smith and his latest weird story about how he once had so much sex it started to make him puke. And hey, did his family adopt his girlfriend when he was a teen? Also, we’re comparing Will Smith’s performance as Richard Williams in King Richard to the actual Richard Williams. There’s also Joey’s trip to Jacksonville, Laremy’s experience growing up in Florida, and Thanksgiving food. I hope you enjoy it super duper hard.

Interview: Bobcat Goldthwait And Dana Gould On Their New Comedy Doc, ‘Joy Ride,’ And All Of Their Showbiz Beefs



Hey, Frotcast fans. Here’s another fun interview: Bobcat Goldthwait directed a concert slash road trip movie where he and Dana Gould go on the road and do stand-up together. Like… they get onstage together and do it as a duo, not just one dude at a time (just the way your mother likes it). Regular listeners will note: Matt and I are normally pretty averse to comedy specials, which oftentimes just feel like doing homework. BUT, and I can’t stress this enough, this one was great. It’s hard to even call it a “comedy special,” mixing as it does, footage of Bobcat and Dana onstage, them on the road, and even some historical footage of them as younger comedians. It’s more like a brand of loose storytelling. It doesn’t feel like having to sit through a comedy special.

Once again, the movie is called Joy Ride, and it will be out as a streaming rental this weekend. It should be available for pre-order now. Remember the name, JOY RIDE: just like your mom’s nickname in junior high.

Aaaaanyway, I think that’s all you need to know. Just listen! At the beginning here there’s a part that gets cut off, I was asking Bobcat about the poster he has of Barry Crimmins behind him. I got to interview Bobcat about his Barry Crimmins documentary a few years back, and then I interviewed Barry for his special when that came out a bit later. Barry died in 2018 (RIP to a real one, for real), that’s why Bobcat calls him “a drunk ghost.” I still don’t really understand who the Duffy twins are, but maybe some bright listener out there can fill me in? We love our obscure references, don’t we folks? Anyway, I always love talking to Bobcat, and Dana Gould was a delight as well, so… enjoy!


Frotcast Bonus: Teaching Nic Cage To Cook, With Gabriel Rucker, Food Consultant for ‘Pig’



Hey, Frotcast fans. Here’s an interview I did with Gabe Rucker. He is the chef/owner of Le Pigeon, in Portland, and recently he worked as the food consultant on the movie Pig, with Nicolas Cage. Nic Cage plays an ex-chef who is a hermit that lives in the forest with his pet pig foraging for mushrooms. Anyway, Gabe got to be the guy who taught Nicolas Cage to cook and created a dish for him to make in the movie. We talk about creating dishes for movies, why chefs seem to hate restaurant movies, how Gabe taught Nic Cage to smell a mushroom, and much, much more. Please to enjoy.


TEASER: Frotcast 489 – Joe Becomes A Pawn In The Culture War



For the full episode, become a $5 patron at Patreon.com/Frotcast! 

Howdy, Frot fans! Matt Lieb is off living his dreams on Maui, drinking virgin daquiris and getting his picture taken with parrots like a 10-year-old, but as we know, the Frot sleeps for no one, not even when they’re getting lei’d. This week your old pals, comedian Joe Sinclitico and Whoop Dreams star Laremy Legel, are in the virtual Frotquarters to talk about how we’re old and nothing works anymore (…societally), and how it sucks that when you become a father you lose the ability to get in fights with local teens, even when they’ve been very unfair to you. Joe saw the James Bond, No I Will Not Go Out And Die Tonight, so we discuss that, and how we could fix the James Bond franchise. After that, we discuss the latest NFT scandal, with the Evolved Ape NFTs and try to understand what the hell NFTs even are. And whether it counts as fraud if you get ripped off in the act of trying to participate in a Ponzi scheme. Meanwhile, Laremy reveals that he owns NFTs himself, and that he’s heavily invested in animals who play in gutters. We also talk Dave Chappelle, and far too late into the show, Joe reveals that he recently became the inadvertent center of a culture war incident and damn near got himself torn apart by an angry mob. In all honesty, that’s the way I always assumed Joe would go.

One thing I’m annoyed that I didn’t say in the show is that I really wish Ben was still alive to make fun of NFTs. Whenever we talk about them I think about how no one I know would appreciate the humor of NFTs like Ben would. As long as you think about Ben riffing on NFTs with us, maybe a little bit of Ben is still alive in our hearts.


TEASER – Noomi Rapace and Valdimar Jóhannsson from LAMB



FULL EPISODE AVAILABLE TO SUBSCRIBERS AT PATREON.COM/FROTCAST

Hey, Frotcast fans. I’ve gotten mostly positive feedback on the interviews I’ve shared, so I thought what the hell, I guess I’ll keep posting them.

This week I got to talk to Noomi Rapace and Valdimar Johansson from the movie Lamb. Valdimar directed it and Noomi Rapace stars. You may also know her from such films as Prometheus, the original Swedish versions of the Girl with The Dragon Tattoo movies, and The Drop. Which, just as an aside, to me was the superior dog revenge movie, though it got got unfairly overshadowed by John Wick.

Anyway, that’s neither here nor there. Like I said, the movie is called Lamb, it’s from A24, and it’s out in theaters this weekend. It’s about a couple, named Maria and Ingvar, who live on a farm in Iceland, who sort of have their lives changed by this baby lamb. I thought it was beautifully shot and just enjoyably weird.

We don’t get into too much spoiler territory in this, at least nothing that’s not in the Trailer. Aaaaand. Well, I’m pretty sure that’s all you need to know. Anyway, hope you enjoy it, and if not we’ll have lots of regular Frotcasts coming your way.


TEASER – Frotcast Interview With AJ Galante



This is just a teaser! To listen to the full interview, subscribe at Patreon.com/Frotcast.

An interview with AJ Galante, the son of an alleged mobster whose father bought a hockey team to run when he was in high school.

Hey, Frotcast fans. Matt is in Portland helping Francesca with a live show this week and we already recorded a new Pod Yourself A Gun, but I’ve got another interview for the Frotcast feed this week.

So, this week there was a new episode of Untold, the sports documentary series from Netflix. They already released a Malice At The Palace episode and a couple others. This latest one is from Maclain Way and Chapman Way, the brothers who did Wild Wild Country. This latest one is about a hockey team called the Danbury Trashers. Basically there was this alleged mobster named Jimmy Galante who ran a trash hauling empire from Danbury, Connecticut. His son AJ was a hockey player, but in his senior year AJ had a really bad injury that ended his hockey career. So in 2004 his dad ends up buying a minor league hockey team and he makes AJ, who was 17 at the time, the general manager.

AJ finds all the best goons and basically turns them into real-life Slapshot. I got to interview AJ this week, and it felt relevant to the Frotcast fans for obvious reasons. With Jimmy Galante in the trash business in a New York suburb, and having a teenage son named AJ, the Sopranos parallels are pretty obvious. In the doc they say that the Sopranos might’ve been partially based on them, but I haven’t found a source for that. Anyway, AJ was a lot of fun to talk to, and I thought it would be a lot more fun to actually hear his voice than just reading it on Uproxx. So, I hope you like it. As always, we have a lot more free stuff on the Pod Yourself A Gun feed, but we’re doing our best to keep that content slop flowing. Hope it fills your snouts.

 


Frotcast Bonus: Billy Corben On ‘Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings Of Miami’



Hey, Frotcast fans. I have this interview for you I did with Billy Corben this week. He directed The U, the Cocaine Cowboys movies, Screwball, Broke on 30 for 30 — I think this is the third time I’ve talked to him, so we sort of know each other by now. He’s a great talker and always a great interview. His latest is called Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings Of Miami, and it’s out on Netflix. It’s about these guys Sal Magluta and Willy Falcón who were trafficking cocaine in Miami in the 80s and 90s. Beyond that I don’t think there’s anything you need to know to understand it. My voice sounds a little weird at first because I was getting an echo and I had to put a filter on my track, but hopefully it isn’t too bad. It also goes away about halfway through.

We haven’t done many episodes on the free feed lately, just because we’ve been busy doing Pod Yourself A Gun, and those are all free. If you’re still thirsty for more content, you can always subscribe on Patreon at Patreon.com/Frotcast. Do that! It’ll be awesome! Anyway, here’s me and Billy Corben.


TEASER – Frotcast 479: Empathy Is Problematic, With Shereen Younes



This week on the Frotcast, Shereen Younes from Ethnically Ambiguous is back on the pod to grill Matt about what it’s like being a twin, and whether twin comedians resent other twin comedians. We also talk about American Underdog, and Zachary Levi playing Kurt Warner in what sounds like a Christian film. In the process, we discover that Zachary Levi isn’t Jewish. Other topics include Shaquille O’Neal and an article Matt found in which someone with diagonosed psychosis explains which commonly used terms, such as “empathy,” are actually problematic. We take a side route into bike twitter, and finally, we even manage to discuss a movie — Zola, about the stripper tweet thread (no spoilers!). Finally, we explain why calling our listeners piggies is actually a term of endearment.

TEASER: Frotcast 469 – Oscars, With Brent Flyberg



Get the full episode by becoming a Patreon at Patreon.com/Frotcast

It was Oscars week this past week, and you know what that means. The glitz! The glamour! The poorly-conceived bits! Da Butt! Pod Yourself A Gun producer and LA comedian/host of the Reactivaders podcast Brent Flyberg joins Vince and Matt as we DIG IN, to all of the various Oscar controversies and keep our piggies’ greedy snouts filled with slop. Is Hollywood too out of touch and that’s why no one wanted to watch the Oscars? Is it PC culture run amok when Adrien Brody can’t even force Halle Berry to make out with him onstage anymore? And has Donald Trump reached his ultimate form in becoming the guy who emails his complaints about the Oscars to media outlets? We discuss all this and more, like whether we’re going to go bald and how quickly Prince William went from young handsome heartthrob to British-looking British man who looks just like Prince Charles. Finally we catch up with Doug Ellin and the cast of Entourage, who apparently have a new podcast out about Entourage and how great it was, and how HBO is too PC now to do an Entourage remake, or let the Entourage boys continue making money from Entourage. Cancel culture is out of control! Let Doug Ellin buy another house you Feminazis!
