This week on the Frotcast, Matt Lieb is back in the studio after getting mobbed, okay mostly yawned at, by Tweens at VidCon, the nation’s foremost gathering of massive celebrities whose fame is confusing for anyone over 20. Comedians Drew Platt and Joe Sinclitico are also in the Frotquarters, to talk about Hereditary and The Incredibles 2, and the joy of watching influencers bomb at stand up. Later we bring on Bobby Roberts from The Portland Mercury to update us on the Star Wars fan backlash situation, including their latest “Declaration,” the Declaration of virgIndependence, as I like to call it. As always, smash that like button, fam, donate to us on Patreon and leave us a review on iTunes so we can keep showing up in them charts and rule the world.
This week on the Frotcast, we’re recording from the new Frotquarters in LA for the first time ever! But we’ve got that same ol’ Frotcast magic, thanks to returning guests comedian Joe Sinclitico and comedienne Alison Stevenson — with Matt Lieb joining remotely and Vince Mancini handling the controls. This week we’re talking ‘Solo,’ sort of, and the weird, Gam3rg8-esque backlash that’s convinced that Kathleen Kennedy is using Star Wars to advance a “feminist agenda.” We also discuss Gringo, the John McAfee documentary about how he likes to kill people and eat poop (seriously, he lets ladies poop in his mouth). And we learn about Alison’s dating life, talk “ghosting,” and all the 21st century relationship etiquette.
