Here’s teaser for our latest Frotcast on Patreon. This clip is mostly about Kirstie Alley but the episode is about a bunch of stuff. Here’s the description.
What up fam? This week’s Frotcast is chock (chalk?) full of content as Vince and Matt proudly welcome twitter homie and Frotcast first time/long time Tim AKA @PostinMonkey. We discuss many pertinent and fascinating subjects on the pod, including the brand new Sopranos movie trailer for the Many Saints of Newark, the death by snu snu of John McAfee, the history of the entire Fast and Furious franchise, and how the tabloids kept bringing up Kirsty Ally for years after she stopped being famous. It’s one of our best.
Yo what up bitch? This is LA Matt! Flap Flap Flap, In The Heights with dat HBOMAX. This week, we got Frotcast Lin Manuel correspondent Francesca Fiorentini in the home studio podding right next to her future husband. We talk about a lot of things in this one, like Halpern’s variety interview where he reveals that he was told “batman doesn’t eat pussy,” as well as Vince’s oral history of Tom Green’s bizarre 2001 movie Freddie Got Fingered. We also discuss Hilaria and Alec Baldwin’s brand new podcast about mental health. Finally, we do our official Frotcast review of In The Heights, a musical that makes Westside Story look authentic. It’s a fun one.
It’s time for your weekly dose of Frotcasty goodness. This week, Matt and Vince welcome power-guest Joey Devine (Roundball Rock Podcast) back to the frotquarters to discuss everything from the Friends reunion special, to Chris Hayes’ bad basketball takes, and even the time he went to Michael Mann’s screening of Heat in Westwood. Also, we discuss the recent outing of power-poster Yashar Ali as a modern Bob from What About Bob? It’s a fun one. Make sure to listen to it and tell your friends about it.
Matt Lieb is an open book, isn’t he, folks? And that’s why we love him, he can’t help but just share his entire self with you, the Patreon piggies. This week, there’s big news in Matt’s life: he’s engaged to be married! To Francesca, who he loves. Matt dishes all the engagement details to Vince and Laremy, from how he proposed to the price of his ring to his plan to get a different, better ring. But it’s not just wedding bells this week, institution bells are also ringing. Sorry, I don’t think they actually have bells, but Matt’s dad has been institutionalized. Damn, this got dark. To dig us out of that hole we talk about newly divorced dad, Bill Gates, and whether Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos will become the superior divorced dad billionaire super villain. Beyond Bill and Bezos there’s also Ben, Affleck that is, who got “caught” (if you can call it that) doing regular ass divorced dad stuff like tryna holla at girls on dating apps. Not the trash dating apps piggies like you use, the special ones for celebrities, that you can only be on if you’re a big star like Ben Affleck or some random Tik Toker who will share videos of Ben Affleck tryna holla. Boy, this was a journey. Also, Laremy is here! Everyone loves Laremy.
Here is a sneak peak of this week’s Patreon-only episode of the Frotcast, in which we invited George Chen and Paco Romane of the Sup Doc podcast to talk about some documentaries that we saw, as well as other things. One huge surprise was learning that Werner Herzog did an entire documentary about dwarves. The following is our guess about what that must have been like.

We did it again! Against the wishes of Vince Mancini who hates his own face, the Frotcast has gone live again for a second time. This time there were a few less technical difficulties and we spent way less time talking movies because let’s be honest, who cares about movies? This week our guest was Jason Webb and we talked about the movie The White Tiger, as well as the “documentary” In and Of Itself which is basically Nanette for magicians. It’s impossible to describe without going insane so you may have to watch it in order to understand how frustrating of movie/magic special it was for us.
We also trade dad stories, which is just *chefs kiss*

In this week’s bonus movie Frotcast, Francesca Fiorentini from The Bitchuation Room and The Young Turks joins us to discuss the year’s most talked about film, Marriage Story. Boy, people sure do love middlebrow dreck about sexless intellectuals, don’t they? Starring Adam Driver and Scarlet Johansson, Noah Baumbach’s latest is yet another work to remind me of John Dolan’s takedown of Jonathan Franzen:
Yes, it’s time someone said it outright: Manhattanites are the new hicks. The mall kids are generations ahead of them. Things that are stale jokes to the mall kids strike the NY publishing world as fresh and hilarious. Maybe they just don’t watch enough TV, or they spend too much time drinking cocktails with F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ghost — whatever the reason, the Manhattanites have lost it completely. The scriptwriters of Christmas Vacationare Flaubertian chroniclers of provincial mores next to Franzen. When you compare Franzen with really talented observers of Minnesota life, like the Coens in Fargo, or even Garrison Keillor inLake Wobegon Days, his incompetence stands out even more sharply.
And if one were to compare him with the great novelist of “pelagic America,” Charles Portis… no, it would be an insult to Portis even to compare a hack like Franzen with him. And yet Portis is all but unknown, while Franzen is everybody’s darling…. Agh, ya buncha idiots!
Now just re-read this passage so that it’s about Brooklynites, Marriage Story, and Mrs. Fletcher (which is kind of like Marriage Story only much better). Yes, unfortunately (or fortunately?), none of your Frot pals liked this movie so much — which is kind of weird, since Francesca is divorced, Matt and I are both dating divorceés, and all three of us work in the arts and/or entertainment, so we should be the target audience (Francesca and I even lived in Brooklyn!). As Matt puts it, their fights are like a montage of every relationship argument in a play you’ve ever seen. I contend that this movie is either about a couple where a person is too cowardly to admit that they don’t love the other person anymore, or a couple who still loves each other but whose relationship couldn’t survive them wanting slightly different careers. Oy. No more stories about sexless New York intellectuals, please.
We finish things off reading about the Topanga tea ceremony and listen to your weird voicemails. You guys are sick, truly. Frot on, and you’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.
Hello Frotland! Matt Lieb here and we’ve got your weekly fix of the Filmdrunk Frotcast. This week, we had the hilarious and beautiful and my girlfriend Francesca Fiorentini in the LA Frotquarters and we discuss everything from Jussie Smollett, Jacob Wohl, to our nice little day trip to Palm Springs that we just got back from where she and I lounged by the pool all day. She’s my girlfriend. Eventually, Vince and I discuss Netflix’s Abducted in Plain Sight about a super sexual predator who will seduce an entire family just to get to a little girl. It’s pretty amazing and horrifying. So have a listen! And give us some stars and a review on iTunes, if you want. THANKS!
Hey, everyone. It’s 2019, and that means 2018 is officially over! Congratulations to those of you who made it out alive.
