Jojo has an imaginary friend, and get this: it’s ADOLF HITLER. That’s right, on this week’s bonus Frotcast, Matt and I are discussing Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, which is basically Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, only with Nazis instead of boy scouts. Oh, and also the Drop Dead Hitler thing. We discuss whether Scarlett Johansson’s character is brilliant or obnoxious, whether we enjoy watching stories about little kids in love, what a Nazi comedy should look like, and pitch our ideal version of this movie, where it’s just about Sam Rockwell’s character getting wild in the dying days of the Third Reich. Please enjoy and subscribe! Let the Frotcast be your imaginary Hitler.
Cancel Culture! Is it real? Is it to be feared? How many racial slurs are comedians allowed to make on podcasts before becoming unemployable? That’s right, this episode of the Frotcast is all about WHERE. YOU. STAND. on the latest CULTURE WAR ISSUES facing COMEDY TODAY! Just kidding, we mostly find the whole Shane Gillis thing extremely exhausting and so we switch to topics more our speed, like Succession, why Matt and Jane aren’t watching Righteous Gemstones even though it’s an objectively wonderful show, and why so many ladies have a curious crush on Kendall Roy. Also, Matt couldn’t get the SD card on his recorder to work and searched all through his parents’ house for a new one but all he found was his mom’s vibrator, which is why Matt’s audio sounds kind of bad this week and also why Matt is a dirty little sex piggy. Meanwhile, we talk about Matt’s five jobs and why eating crickets on the internet is way better than being on SNL. In Jane Harrison’s return, she talks about getting a new cat even though her last cat tried to kill her. Are Jane’s cats Kendall Roy? SO MUCH MORE. Please to enjoy and subscribe, patreon.com/frotcast for the bonus episodes, you’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.
Hello all you lovely Frotcast listeners, Matt Lieb here. It’s been over a week since we last Frotted together and trust me when I say we’ve missed you just as much as you’ve missed us. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED: movie news has happened, internet beefs have come and gone, sexual predators who were once alive are now mysteriously dead, Vince went to Australia and became a man. And on and on it goes. Luckily, we had Joe Sinclitico and comedian Casey Ley in the Frotquarters to make sense of it all for us. You might remember Casey from our Super Bonus Riff episode of the Frot where we watched Weekend At Bernie’s. If you haven’t listened to that episode, you should.
Here’s just a brief overview:
-Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide
-Vince’s trip to Australia where he decides to go full Borat voice
-Matt had internet beef with a Cosby Truther
-Was Jeffrey Epstein murdered?
-Another Matrix movie?
-Casey Ley is not suspicious of Epstein’s untimely death
–Spider-Man goes to Sony!
-WHERE WAS CASEY WHEN EPSTEIN WAS FOUND DEAD?!?!?!

Were you aware that Larry The Cable Guy’s wife wrote a book of horse prayer? It’s called Unbridled Faith: 100 Devotions from the Horse Farm, and we share this discovery on this week’s Frotcast. Joining us in the Frotquarters this week are music writer Dan Ozzi, formerly of Vice/Noisey, now writing a book on punk, and comedian Ryan Papazian, Matt’s former co-host on Where Eagles Dare, a now defunct podcast about punk. Naturally we tell some Danzig stories, but also discuss Comic-Con and the new trailers for Top Gun, the Tom Hanks Mr. Rogers movie, and of course, Cats, the trailer that single-handedly shutdown the internet for an entire day. We also discuss Oliver Stone’s descent into beautiful insanity and reminisce about the underrated brilliance of Freddy Got Fingered.
Naturally, we finish things off with your emails and voicemails. Keep on Frotting and subscribe at Patreon.com/Frotcast if you want access to our extensive catalogue of bonus #Content. You can add it to your regular podcast feed! You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.

Here it is, folks, our POSITIVELY NO SPOILERS review of the new “live-action” remake of The Lion King, starring live-action, photoreal versions of Matt and Vince. I’m just kidding about the spoilers thing, you actually can’t spoil this movie because it’s basically a shot-for-shot remake of that cartoon we all know and loved from 1994. We loved it because of the totally authentic African music recorded by famous African musicians Elton John and Tim Rice. Will the remake be as good? Well, nothing improves a cartoon like PHOTOREAL LIONS, I always say. Topics include:
-When you say Jon Favreau “directed” this, what does that actually mean?
-Why don’t the lions have dicks?
-How did Billy Eichner manage to transcend this format that destroyed everyone else?
-No but seriously, why don’t the lions have dicks?
-Who decided that the lions shouldn’t have dicks and why?
-Are we too hung up on the lion-dick thing?
For this month’s bonus live riff, the FilmDrunk Frotcast has selected Limitless, the original (lol, kinda?) “what if hunnert percent brain?” classic from 2011. It’s a film that plays like the screenwriter took a bunch of Adderall and wrote a film about SUPER Adderall that gives you superpowers. What if Bradley Cooper took Adderall? Would he court Lady Gaga even more meticulously? Turns out he mostly just gets a haircut and puts on a new suit, transforming himself from David Foster Wallace into Bradley Cooper, handsome movie star.
Joining us on this adventure are Joey Devine from the Roundball Rock podcast and Alison Stevenson of V Single. This is just a teaser, but you can get the entire episode by subscribing to our Patreon at the $20 level. That way you can hear our entire live riff of Limitless PLUS Matt telling the full story of finding out an ex was cheating on him from hearing her on a podcast. What a fun episode! Totally worth your donation! You’ll also get to hear all of our movie review podcasts. You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.
What’s up Frot fam! Matt Lieb here and holy hell do we have some amazing #content for you to #engage with this week. San Francisco comedian Allison Mick has moved to Los Angeles and there’s no better welcoming party than visiting the LA Frotquarters to rip hollywood fail-children Max Landis and Sam Levinson. This week we discuss HBO’s zoomer porn Euphoria, Max Landis’s most recent rape allegations, and Matt’s trip to New York – where dozens of Frotcast fans showed up to a slew of bar shows to show their support for our aging brand. We also read some e-mails and listen to some voicemails from Frot listeners who are inexplicably still Frotting with us after all these years. It’s a beautiful episode and you should listen to it.
Also, please donate to our Patreon if you want to listen to us review movies. We k
Ask and you shall receive: back by popular demand on this week’s Frotcast, it’s Joe Sinclitico. Joe is freshly engaged to be married (!!!), which doesn’t stop him from talking about his stint as a porn cameraman in his mid 20s (another listener-requested story). Comedian Jason Webb is also joining us this week, talking about his preacher father, his North Carolina upbringing, and the incredible story of the time a man used prayer to cure his plantar wart (you have to hear this one).
We also talk the best Tom Selleck movies, and of course Game Of Thrones. We answer all the burning questions, like whether Bran is the Night King and which Stark kid is the best. Is Game Of Thrones the best normie-approved cultural phenomenon we can hope for? Or is it the cultural juggernaut known as the FilmDrunk Frotcast? As always, subscribe to our Patreon for this week’s bonus content and leave us a review on iTunes (and thanks for the recent ones, you guys).

The Frotcast is back for this week’s free episode with Bill Conway, co-founder and head writer of The Hard Times, the Onion of Punk Rock, who regales us with stories of moving to LA and going to work for the hardware store that Crispin Glover calls constantly for supplies for his Air BnB. We wonder what it must be like to stay in Crispin Glover’s Air BnB. Matt has some stories about his parents living next to Glenn Danzig. We talk Little, and the trailer for the new Lion King, and the trend of Disney just remaking animated classics with CGI animals. We discover Thad Bingel, our new favorite addition to the pantheon of names that sound like joke names. Jokes were had, friends were made, some of us did a riff. It’s a podcast! You’ll love it! You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast!
It’s time for another regular ol’ boring episode of the Filmdrunk Frotcast… or IS it? It’s NOT! A regular ol’ boring episode, I mean. It’s not that. Because this week Matt, Vince, and Brendan (via Skype) got together for the annual NAME OF THE YEAR Draft, in which we read through Deadspin’s bracket of the world’s best/worst names and giggle uncontrollably. Listen at your own risk, and try not to Jizyah Shorts.
Our guest this week is Josh Androsky (@shutupandrosky) – a democratic socialist, comedian, and winner of a million dollars on a Big Bang Theory slot machine. We talk about everything from “what’s it like to win a million dollars?” to “can I have some of the million dollars?” and much more! Oh, we also talk about how Joe Biden is a creep and possibly some sort of robot. It’s one hell of an episode and you should really listen to it, and then give the Frotcast 5 stars and a review on iTunes because we need it.
