Bonus Frotcast: ‘Widows,’ With Joe Sinclitico



It may look like we only did one Frotcast this week, but actually we did two. The other one is a review pod, with me (Vince) and Joe Sinclitico discussing Steve McQueen and Gillian Flynn’s Widows. That’s available here for our Patreon subscribers. Don’t you want to support the Frot? Yeaaaah, you do, you know you do. Seriously though, your support means a lot. AND the more you support us, the less we have to worry about dumb crap like making the show clean enough for advertisers or not getting in trouble at our other jobs (imagine if Bret could’ve been able to make pod, paranoia free… the impossible dream…).

Anyway, money means independence. Paying for content means independent content. Thank you all immensely for your support. Thank you for helping to make the world safe for honest #content.


Frotcast 394: Go Fight Yer Dah, With Joe Sinclitico And Jane Harrison



Seamus! Be a good boy and go ‘n fight yer dah!

This week on the Frotcast, comedians Joe Sinclitico and Jane Harrison return to the show to talk about the Crooked Media/Facebook kerfuffle, discuss Creed II and Michael B. Jordan’s ripped body, Joe getting violated by his dog as a boy, and whether I have to kill Matt now because he won a journalism award for his dumb show as if I haven’t been writing on the internet for 11 goddamned years. Oh hey, did I type that? Pardon me, that was a hand fart. Totally not bitter over here. Anyway, we finish things off breaking down the acting attorney general’s patent for a toilet for guys with big dicks and Matt does the Royalty Freestyle. Jeez, do you guys hear these songs? I guess they’ll give a journalism award to anyone these days.


393: The Seed Bearers, Sean Keane And Johnny Taylor Jr.



Happy Election Day, Frot fam! To celebrate our glorious democracy, we’re releasing this new podcast, which has not a single moment of election coverage or commentary. Guests Johnny Taylor Jr. (Bummin’ With The Devil) and Sean Keane from Roundball Rock join Vince and Matt to discuss the recently-announced list of Avatar sequels (including “The Seed Bearer”), Matt patting doggies in Red Dead Redemption, Pete Davidson’s latest waaaacky shenanigans, and Jordan Peterson’s all-beef diet, which cured his lupus and allows him to see through walls. Matt also debuts his new character, “Matt Lieb’s imagined public persona.” I think it’s his best yet!

So Frotters, thank you for coming on this journey of self-discovery with us. If you’re feeling generous, please give us a review on itunes, and definitely support our Patreon to get all that delicious bonus #content, lum lum lum lum.


392: Hot Wet America MAGAchuds, with OJ Patterson and Jessica Sele



Happy Halloween Frot family! It’s time for another SPOOKtacular episode of FilmDrunk FRIGHTCast and boy do we have a treat and/or trick for you! Our guests are Jessica Sele aka Jessica SQUEALY and OJ Patterson aka GOREnthal James Patterson! We talk about everything from Megyn Kelly being fired for loving blackface to Japanese heavy metal. We discuss the shanking death of Whitey Bulger in prison which leads to Matt talking about the GHASTLY subject of elder abuse.

It’s a TERRORific episode and you just tell all of your friends to listen! (Matt Lieb wrote this terrible episode description)


TEASER: 391, Kissing The Tip, With Mike Mulloy And Joe Sinclitico



Howdy, Frot fans! This bonus episode is currently available to our Patrons, at Patreon.com/Frotcast.
FROTCAST 391: Kissing the Tip with Joe Sinclitico and Mike Mulloy

Sup Frot fam! Specifically the patreon-subscriber subsection of the Frot fam! It’s time for your double dose of content of the FilmDrunk Frotcast and boy have we got one hell of a bonus episode for you! This week Joe Sinclitico returns along with first time guest, comedian Mike Mulloy. We discuss a wide range of topics: from the break up of Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande, to Joe and Matt’s reoccurring dream of autofellatio. Also Vince and Matt watched Girls Trip together and discuss the film juuuust long enough for this podcast to still be considered a film podcast. We also talk about the movie Halloween at some point which quickly degrades into a discuss about how hot Jamie Lee Curtis was in the movie True Lies. Eat the beans, my dudes. Eat. The. Beans. (-Matt Lieb)


390: Riley Breckenridge From Thrice, Name Whether That Tune Is Christian



ALERT: A STAR IS BORN SPOILER AT 25:30! AVOID IT LEST YE BE SPOILED! Okay, carry on.

Riley Breckenridge from Thrice and the Productive Outs podcast joins us this week, joining returning guest Joey Avery, aka The San Diego Hammer, comedian and host of the Chubbies podcast. Naturally we ask Riley all about being a rock star and dealing with major label nonsense and he regales us with stories of being flown to New York to get shaded by LA Reid.

We talk about the new radio ad for Republican congressman French Hill of Arkansas, which uses exaggerated black dialect to compare justice Brett Kavanaugh’s treatment to black men in the Jim Crow era after white women “cried rape,” and warns black voters to stick with Hill lest lynching make a comeback (points for boldness, I guess).

We discuss A Star is Born, which I sort of like but Matt, in a shocking turn of events for an avowed shill who loves to cry, hates with a fiery passion (I used a picture of A Star Is Born at the top here instead of Riley because we couldn’t afford the Getty Image). Who could’ve guessed?

Finally, we play our newest Frotcast game, “Name Whether That Tune Is Christian” (or “God Rock Or Fraud Rock,” as Matt wants to name it), in which the panelists wager on how few seconds of a song they need to hear in order to determine whether or not that song is Christian. “Christian” being here defined as an artist who has “Christian” in the first line of their Wikipedia description or songs on the Christian charts (that is, they have to advertise as Christian).

Frot on and enjoy, support the Patreon, and PLEASE, leave us a review on iTunes.


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 Christman 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.
