Merry Christmas and Chappy Chanukah, Frot-sters! In honor of Jesus (and also the Maccabees)’s special day(s), I’m unlocking this Frotcast even for the free feed piggies. This one has me, Matt, and Joe Sinclitico, and we start off discussing Matt’s new child and his post-partum horniness. Then we get into Kanye on Alex Jones, where he discussed loving ALOOTTTTTTTA THINNNNNGS about Hitler (Ye’s words). Finally, we wrap things up with a discussion of Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age tale about becoming an acclaimed director thanks to his parents’ divorce and that time he got to score because some weird girl had a crush on Jesus. Also, his mom had a monkey.

Frotcast: Billy Corben On ‘God Forbid’



Good Night And Good Cuck

Director Billy Corben is absolutely SMASHING the record for the director with the most Frotcast appearances, with three or maybe even four already. Who can even say?! The man behind Cocaine Cowboys, The U, 537 Votes, Screwballs, et. al. is always a great interview — a “raconteur,” you might even say, which happens to be the name of his production company — so any time he has a movie out it’s a great excuse to get him on.

This week (month?) he has ‘God Forbid’ out on a Hulu, a documentary about Jerry Falwell Jr.’s swingery relationship with a “Miami pool boy” named Giancarlo Granda, who was really only a pool boy for one year of his life but now is forever associated with the phrase because of the scandal. Jerry ALLEGEDLY liked to watch Giancarlo have sex with his wife, Becki, but, because Giancarlo and Jerry caught tied up in a real estate deal with some sketchy Miami dudes, they ended up suing and the whole pool boy/swinger thing got out. ALSO, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen knew about the relationship and has claimed that he used this knowledge as leverage in trying to get Jerry Jr. to support Trump’s bid for president — which Jerry Jr did, and probably had some hand in evangelicals voting for Trump in record numbers.

Phew, now you know why this conversation lasted for a whole hour. Lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what have yous. Hope you enjoy, and don’t forget to check out God Forbid on Hulu.


UNLOCKED: Frotcast 525, Pulling The Mucus Plug On James Corden



Howdy, Frot fans. I’m sick this week and Matt is still on sa-brat-tical, which is terrible news for us, but great news for the free-feed piggies. Since I don’t feel like recording a new Frotcast this week, I’m unlocking last week’s for all the non-subscribers. Hopefully this will convince you to finally subscribe, so you can receive amazing episodes like this right when they come out. Meanwhile, we’re still releasing new Pod Yourself The Wire episodes free every week. You can get those right on time when you’re a subscriber too! So do it! Patreon.com/Frotcast.

Matt is still out on sa-brat-ical taking care of his newborn, but never fear, Joe Sinclitico and Laremy Legal are here, and we’ve got all kinds of #content. Joe has just discovered the concept of the mucus plug, so we all have a pretty good time with that one. After that, we get into the latest Olivia Wilde revelations, like giving away her dog and the fact that she apparently has a special salad dressing. From there we get into the celebrity nannying industry and how lucrative it apparently is (very!). That leads us into Danny Masterson’s trial, which made us realize that there are still some things about Scientology we didn’t know. Who knew! From there, Joe regales us with his review of ‘Thirteen Lives’ about the Thai cave boys, and Laremy has seen The Redeem Team which makes me rant about Kobe Bryant again. Oh, and of course we couldn’t leave without discuss James Corden, his restaurant ban, all-yolk omelets, and his poor attempts at damage control. Enjoy!

TEASER – Joey Avery And Torio Van Grol Find Shelly Miscavige



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

Matt is on baby duty, or “sabrattical” as I like to call it, but not to fear: we’ve got Joey Avery, The San Diego Hammer, and Torio Van Grol from the Hesby Street podcast to mix it up. First of all, Torio, as a San Diego native, objects to Joey being known as the San Diego Hammer. But once that’s out of the way, the three of us come together like a majestic Voltron to do some very fine podding on subjects such as Kanye West praising Hitler and going “death con 3 on the jews,” and whether our tweets are doing enough to raise awareness to the problem of global antisemitism. I also pick their brains about what it’s like living in the shadow of the Scientology Center in East Hollywood, and whether they can help find Shelly Miscavige. We touch on whether Torio is worried about getting beat up at the Dodgers game and whether $28 is too much or just the right amount to spend on a lunch at Taco Bell. Either way, a fine time is going to be had by all.

[TEASER] Mel Gibson helps Shia LaBeouf discover Jesus



Hey all, new frotcast is here and you can listen to the whole thing on Patreon.

This week, comedian Joe Sinclitico returns to the Frotcast to discuss all the hottest new #content, including a new Josh Duhamel movie with Mel Gibson, the ideal form of “Hollywood Dumb Guy,” Tom Hanks’ son Chet Haze speaking at a Recovery Fest in Winnipeg (and what causes a famous son to become either a Colin Hanks or a Chet), the latest wild stuff that Ezra Miller has been up to (including the time he stole a polygamist’s wife in Hawaii), and finally, we round things out with a discussion of the 2011 documentary The Hollywood Complex. This is a documentary about child actors that Joe’s wife discovered it on Amazon Prime and it is absolutely wild. It’s the perfect snapshot of pre-#MeToo Hollywood, the very last time casting directors would ever be willing to say this kind of stuff on camera, and all in all is the movie that seems most like a Christopher Guest movie that isn’t actually a Christopher Guest movie. It is Exhibit A for why child actors probably shouldn’t be a thing.

Join now to hear it! Here’s a teaser in which Joe Sinclitico describes a new Shia Labeouf movie.


Frotcast Bonus: Ti West on ‘Pearl,’ ‘X’, And ‘Maxxxine’



Well, it’s that time of the month again, free feed Frotcast fans. That’s right, I did an interview and now I’m sharing it with you. Perhaps you saw X when it came out in March? That was about a group of kids making a porn in the seventies who travel out to an isolated farmhouse where terror ensues. Now, just (*counts on fingers*) six months later, the sequel is opening. Or rather, the prequel. Pearl tells the origin story for the creepy old lady played by Mia Goth in X (who also played the porn starlet), again starring Goth in a story set in 1918, just after the Spanish Flu pandemic. Both movies were directed by my interview subject, Ti West. If you’re a long-time Frotcast listener, you may remember West from my interviews with him for The Sacrament and In A Valley Of Violence. Which is to say that Ti and I known each other for a bit, even though 90% of our conversations are generally about MMA, including the very end of this one. I admit it feels (and probably even sounds) a little weird when I do my Teri Gross act, but I’m also genuinely curious about the insane process of shooting two (and soon to be three, since the X/Pearl sequel, Maxxxine was greenlit shortly after we recorded this) horror movies back to back in New Zealand. And it’s nice to hear it from someone you know who isn’t just giving you the stock press tour answers.


TEASER: Frotcast 520 – ‘House Of The Dragon’ And Awful New Startups, With Jessica Sele



To hear the full episode, subscribe to the Frotcast at Patreon dot com slash frotcast.

This week on the Frotcast, comedian Jessica Sele joins Matt and Vince to discuss oh so many things. Things such as House Of The Dragon, the new HBO prequel for Game Of Thrones about House Targaryen. It opened with a dragon and I went “ugh” inside and then I watched the entire thing. Does that mean I have to apologize to all the Baby Yoda people I made fun of because I’ve proved that I’m just as much of a piggie? We also discuss the rottweiler that may or may not have caused Sylvester Stallone’s divorce, as well as the bull mastiff that Sylvester Stallone got tattooed on his arm over his wife’s face. Which is a normal thing that everyone does. Finally, we talk about a new startup that promises to make any user sound white and American over the phone, regardless of their actual voice. Technology, is there anything it can’t do?

Frotcast Bonus: BJ Novak On ‘Vengeance’



Hey, Frotcasters. Nice little treat for the free feed this week: I got to talk to BJ Novak for his new movie, Vengeance. You most likely know BJ Novak as Ryan from The Office, and that was about all I knew about Vengeance before I put it on. It turned out to be a funny riff on NPR and the podcast world, and making fun of NPR is of course very much up our alley here on the Frotcast (staaaaaged). BJ plays a wannabe Ira Glass type who goes to West Texas to do a podcast about the death of some girl he was hooking up with but doesn’t remember that well. It sort of evolves from a fish-out-of-water, Doc-Hollywood-with-a-podcaster type comedy to something almost resembling a thriller. It has Boyd Holbrook from Narcos and Ashton Kutcher, both doing some of their best work. It should be playing in a theater not too far from you right now. Anyway, I talked up BJ about NPR, working on Punk’d, and that quote about him saying going to Harvard made it harder that went around last week.
