Frotcast x White Slavery, the collab! On this week’s crossover episode of the Frotcast and the White Slavery podcast, Kaseem Bentley and Murahd Shawki join Matt and Vince for a lively conversation about the latest peliculas and noticias celebridad. Oops, I seem to have slipped into my native tongue there. You’ll have to pardon me, it’s just that my parents retired in Ethpaña.
That’s right, we’re discussing this week’s funniest story: that Alec Baldwin’s wife has been calling herself “Hilaria” and telling people she was born in Spain when apparently she was actually born in Massachusetts with dubious claims to any Spanish ancestry and was named Hilary Hayword-Thomas (ALLEGEDLY). But as Alec Baldwin says… …. … … consider the source … … … consider the source …
After that we talk Wonder Woman 1984, and whether it’s Zionist propaganda or just kind of lazy. What are Wonder Woman’s actual powers? Does she have to move every few years when people notice she isn’t aging? Did she really save herself for Chris Pine for 66 years? Why does he know how to fly a jet? And why is this movie set in 1984? Ponder all this and more while smoking your favorite new strain of weed, Magic Oprah.
Frot-fans! We have a brand new Frotcast for the Patrons at Patreon.com/Frotcast. We’d love it if you became a Patron and listened to our newest one! But all piggies are loved in their own special way, so we’re also unlocking Frotcast 452 from a few months ago. Enjoy!
Hey all, this episode is from our Patreon bonus episodes but we feel like you piggies needed a free one. Here it is:
This week on the Frot, we’re talking about the hot new Sacha Baron Cohen project currently setting the internet wags on fire. That’s right, I’m talking about The Trial Of The Chicago 7, Aaron Sorkin’s new Netflix joint about hippies, protests, the radical left, broads who need a good talking to, brave men in uniform, and courtrooms (you’re free until next week, Rudy Giuliani). We discuss Sacha Baron Cohen’s bonkers Boston accent (so strange coming from a guy who has spent his life doing weird accents in real-life situation) and the filmography of Aaron Sorkin in general. Sorkin had it all with this project — Boomer heroes, courtroom drama, a packed cast, a premise generally far less obnoxious than The Newsroom, and best of all, NO WOMEN. His whole wheelhouse. After years of giving him a hard time, we were so ready to finally give him his due. And yet he even managed to make this one kind of annoying at the end.
Before that, we discuss this week’s top story. That’s right, I’m talking about Jeffrey Toobin cranking his hog on a Zoom call. You’d think that would be the perfect joke for at least a week, but no, the internet had to quickly separate into warring camps of which teachable moment this incident best represented. We were going to debate that one in earnest, but you remember the Frotcast rule: no hugging, no learning. Only lumming. Finally, it’s an episode worth paying a premium for. No refunds.
ATTN: THIS IS MERELY A TEASER. FOR THE FULL EPISODE, SUBSCRIBE AT PATREON.COM/FROTCAST!

We’re back! Almost! While you wait for our real return, here’s Frotcast 450, now free for the piggies. If you want to hear these in a timely manner, subscribe on Patreon.com/Frotcast. If you’d like to hear us yap about the Sopranos, we have a bunch of new Pod Yourself A Gun episodes for you.
We may not be seeing Tenet, Christopher Nolan’s latest, when it opens (ONLY) in theaters this week, but that’s not going to stop us from discussing his 2006 movie about dueling Victorian-era magicians, The Prestige, on this week’s Frotcast. Is The Prestige an underrated classic or an accurately rated classic? Is David Bowie as Nikola Tesla the best casting? How many fake mustaches is *too* many fake mustaches in a very serious movie about double-crossing magicians? Helping us to answer all these questions is your favorite returning guest, Sean Keane from the Roundball Rock podcast, who always seem to know more about movies than us. Or at the very least, more than Matt.
Before we get to that, though, we have some very exciting news that is very relevant to our love of terrible accents: the recent discovery that the bulk of the Scots language Wikipedia page was actually written by an American teenager with no knowledge of the Scots language. Instead they’re just in poorly-spelled fake Scottish. Honestly this is probably the best story of the year. We also discuss The Comey Rule and the Tiger King movie, and what it’s like spending 18 months working on a movie whose subject matter is already obsolete? Finally, I discuss what I learned from being dragged by autism twitter. Enjoy, and thank you for subscribing! No refunds!
Hi again, it’s that time of week again where Matt and Vince take a break from their life of isolation with their significant others and talk to each other about wet ass pussies in perfect Irish accents and release the conversation for public consumption. Now that I’ve explained what podcasting is to you fine people, I think it’s best that I tell you what we talked about this week. On this week’s Frotcast, we invited comedian Jason Webb to the virtual frotquarters to talk about the upcoming Apple+ documentary Boys State which follows a group of high school teens as they take a crash course in running a political campaign. We also talk Cardi B’s hot new single WAP as well as the Ben Shapiro remix. Plus, there’s a brief update on the life of Jordan B Peterson and much more. It’s a good pod. Please listen.
Over on the Patreon feed, we’ve got a brand new episode about Shia Labeouf’s new cholo tattoos and Seth Rogen’s evolving views on Zionism. But since we love all our piggies nearly equally, we’re putting this episode with a classic Tales From NPR and our discussion of Eurovision Song Contest on the free feed. We love you! Please keep listening so we don’t starve. Can you believe we’ve been doing this TEN YEARS? Hot damn.
Caddyshack turns 40 this week, and since I had to watch it to write about, I made Matt watch it and talk about it with me and then we invited Joey Avery to discuss it with us. Caddyshack was slightly before our times but we still kind of like it, and I was curious what someone slightly younger, like Joey would think. Like was this just the era that was the first time Boomers got to drink and do drugs on film, or is it actually good beyond that in a way that holds up? So we’ve got that discussion, plus a run down of the latest in movie news, like Hulu getting into the Hillary Clinton fan fiction business and the Vanilla Ice biopic. We hope you love it, and as always, no refunds.
Over on Patreon.com/frotcast, I will be putting my bonus interview with Caddyshack book author Chris Nashawaty, and that will have all kinds of Caddyshack facts and stories and whatnot. Frot on and eat the beans.
The gang’s all back this week, including your regular hosts, Vince Mancini and Matt Lieb, plus your old pals Jane Harrison and Jason Webb. Jane, one of our first single guests since the quarantine, fills us in on the single life in USA quarantine ground zero, New York City, and how ladies are just peeing in the downstairs hallway now because there are no rules anymore. Meanwhile Jason Webb reveals his own pre-quarantine breakup and what it’s like trying to move on the first day of shelter in place. Vince talks about having to do a journalism on Richard Curtis and Matt explains how the movie ‘Yesterday’ actually stole his idea for a movie about John Lennon going back in time to steal all of George Harrison’s songs. I’m not sure what we talked about other than that, but there were surely a lot of terrible accents and impromptu songs. We hope you like it!
