Frotcast 389: TEASER, David Gborie And Jules Posner



Episode 389 is up for our Patreon donors ($5 donors and up). Support the Frotcast on Patreon today!

Here’s the full episode description:

Frot fans, this right here is why you support the Patreon. Remember David Gborie, our Juggalo correspondent from Colorado? He’s back on the show, and guess what, he’s kind of blown up since his last appearance. He was even on Conan. David’s got some thoughts on Night School and Kevin Hart’s career arc. Also joining us is one of my favorite ex-San Francisco comedians, Jules Posner. Jules tells us what it’s like growing up not-rich in San Francisco with a dad who’s in a biker band. He also has some thoughts on Blindspotting. Naturally we’ve also got Matt Lieb blurting inappropriate thoughts and me, Vince Mancini, forcing the group to talk about Russell Crowe’s love affair with his horse. Enjoy, Frot on, and for the love of God tell a friend.


388: La La Lunar Landing With Justin Halpern and Francesca Fiorentini



As we slowly approach 400 episodes of the Filmdrunk Frotcast we Frotsmen occasionally lose sight of why exactly we keep doing this week after week, month after month, year after year. The answer to this question lies within this week’s episode starring Justin Halpern (Shit My Dad Says, Surviving Jack), Francesca Fiorentini (Newsbroke, Young Turks, AJ+) and Joe Sinclitico (Adam Devine’s House Party) all live and in-person in the brand new LA studio (Vince’s apartment). In this episode we discuss everything from Fred Durst’s NextDoor habits, to neurotic dog owners in LA, to Gary Oldman’s secret antisemitism, to Joe Sinclitico pooping himself while watching MMA. Also, because we are movie podcast we also discuss Damien Chazelle’s space movie First Man, AKA La La Lunar Landing, where Neil Armstrong La La loses his daughter to La La lymphoma.

Episodes like this are why we pod. So enjoy, and tell your friends. And become a Patron please as money is also why we pod. (-Matt Lieb)


387: Digimon Honsoup, With Matt Christman And Jeff May



This week on the Frotcast, Matt Christman from Chapo Trap House and statuesque comedian Jeff May join Matt and Vince in the Frotquarters to discuss Same Kind Of Different As Me, the faith-based magical negro drama starring Greg Kinnear and Djimon Honsou (originally set to be released by Paramount then dropped, now available on Netflix). That’s the one where “international art dealer” Ron Hall of Texas cheated on his wife, then had to work in a homeless shelter as penance, where he met a homeless black man his wife had seen in a dream. The homeless man, Denver Moore, taught everyone a valuable lesson while Hall’s wife conveniently died of cancer, leaving him to write the self-serving memoir about it. From the same ghostwriter of Heaven is for Real! We discuss Djimon Honsou’s curious casting as a 70-year-old Cajun man, and why every rich white guy feels compelled to write a memoir about making a black friend. Jeff tells a story about delivering gold for the author of A Million Little Pieces, and Matt Christmas talks about the Trump Prophecy and the Chapo book tour. Enjoy, Frot on, and please support our Patreon so Matt Lieb can afford new socks.

Episode 386: Sean Pen15, With Joey Devine And Zach Johnson



Oh hi, Filmdrunk readers! I didn’t see you there because thousands of miles separates us, most likely. It’s time for another ACTION PACKED edition of the FilmDrunk Frotcast – literally the world’s only film podcast that also covers television. Which is fortunate for you because this week we talk about the Emmy awards with Uproxx’s own Zach Johnston and Roundball Rock’s Joey Devine. Also featured in this episode: Vince talks about Sean Penn’s “issues” with the MeToo movement and then proceeds to reveal that Sean Penn sexually assaulted Madonna (seriously) ((allegedly… but seriously)), Matt Lieb explores his love of Mystic River via Sean Penn impersonation, and Zach discusses living in Germany and the many, many types of sausages they enjoy there, while also teaching Matt where and what the Berlin wall was. If you love FILM AND TELEVISION, you’ll LOVVVVVE this podcast. (-Matt Lieb)


Frotcast 384: Ace Of Strokers, With Alison Stevenson And Brendan



Are y’all ready to talk about CINEMA?!?! Good, because this week’s Frotcast, which features comedian and Vice columnist Alison Stevenson and future NFL hall of famer Brendan, is jam packed with the same in-depth film critique that keeps you coming back for more. America’s number one film podcast dives into the classic Burt Reynold’s film Stroker Ace – a movie about NASCAR racing and normalized sexual assault. We also talk about the the Beatles having a circle jerk, Matt recalls a circle jerk story of his own, Norm MacDonald’s apology tour, and Mark Wahlberg’s daily schedule.

381: Jaws And Christian Corner With Dave Thomason And Scott Luhrs



Remember that guy who said ska is the sound a 13-year-old hears in his head when he gets more mozzarella sticks? That’s Well that was Dave Thomason (Comedy Central, HBO) who said that, and he’s on the show this week. He joins Vince and Matt, along with fellow comic Scott Luhrs. We’re revisiting Jaws (in order to better appreciate The Meg), as well as Tales From NPR, and Christian Corner. This week’s Christian title is God Bless The Broken Road, a film adaptation of a Rascal Flatts song from the director of God’s Not Dead and God’s Not Dead 2 about soldiers and NASCAR starring LaDainian Tomlinson. We even have an EXCLUSIVE first-hand Kirk Cameron story. It’s pretty good stuff.

376: To All The Guests We’ve Loved Before



So, do you like Cars 3 director Bobby Hacker? What about Vice writer Alison Stevenson? And how about Brian Abrams, author of Obama: An Oral History (previously of Heeb and Death and Taxes)? All these acclaimed past Frotcast guests join Matt Lieb from the Star Wars Show and me, Vince Mancini from FilmDrunk, for a podcast about Brian’s new book and our thoughts on the new Netflix rom-com, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

379: Brendan Returns! With Yusef Roach



This week on the Frotcast, it’s co-host Brendan’s triumphant return from fathering children. Brendan joins the irregular regular Matt Lieb and Vince, with returning guest, comedian Yusef Roach. Yusef just got fired, possibly for social media reasons, so we ask about that, and then I play all my favorite football reality shows for ex-NFL Europe player Brendan. Can you predict the moral of the bad football coach parable? After that we talk “Bitch I’m a Cow,” the song of the Summer, and we all watched the 1993 classic The Fugitive. Is it the best cast movie ever made? We also talk awards shows, Colin Jost, and more.
