TEASER: In The Heights, and the depths of Batman’s sex life



Hey all,

On this week’s frotcast (which you can get on the Filmdrunk Frotcast free feed or on the Patreon feed), we had Francesca Fiorentini (MSNBC, National Geographic, TYT) on the pod to talk Min Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights and other things. This teaser is less about the musical, and more about Justin Halpern’s recent story in Variety about Batman’s sex life.

Full ep description:

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.

TEASER: Review of Mark Wahlberg’s Infinite – The Dumb Guy Matrix



Hey all, this week’s Patreon-only Frotcast is a review of a powerful new dumb guy movie that you need to see as soon as it’s released: Infinite. You can absolutely listen to the episode without having seen the movie so please become a Patreon subscriber.

—-DESCRIPTION—-

“Have you ever had a dream so real you thought you actually said hi to your mother for me?” This week, Vince and Matt watched the brand new Mark Wahlberg sci-fi action flick “Infinite” which takes place in a world where a select group of people can remember their past lives and are fighting about it for some reason. In a nutshell, it’s a Matrix/Bourne Identity/Cloud Atlas mash-up for people with traumatic brain injuries. It’s peak dumb guy stuff. So of course we strongly recommend you watch this movie immediately. Enjoy!


[UNLOCKED] Frotcast 473 – The De Vil Wears Doggos



Hey Pod Yourself A Gun listeners,

Hope you are enjoying the PYAG hiatus and are handling it with patience and grace. The following is a FREE episode of the Filmdrunk Frotcast a.k.a. the pod that spawned our modest lil Sopranos podcast that you currently enjoy. Just want to encourage you to subscribe to the Frotcast on all your podcast devices and strongly encourage you to donate to the Patreon in order to feed upon our content while we start prepping season 5 of the Sopranos pod for you.

——-

It’s time for your regularly scheduled program, the Filmdrunk Frotcast with Vince Mancini and Matt Lieb. This week, the boys watched the brand new Disney Plus movie event Cruella, an origin story for the fashionista/dog murdering villain from 101 Dalmatians. I’m positive this joke has been made before but it’s basically The Joker without all of that pesky incel energy. It’s a touching film about a #GirlBoss who slays the patriarchy on her long road to eventually slaying dogs. Run, don’t walk, to your nearest smart TV and stream it now.

We also discuss Bo Burnham’s new comedy special Inside as well as Ellie Kemper’s recent kerfuffle with being crowned the Yellow Queen at the KKK prom or something. Finally, Laremy Legal makes an appearance. Enjoy!

TEASER: Patreon review of “Those Who Wish Wish Me Dead” on HBO Max



Hey Podsiglieres, the following is a little taste of Matt and Vince’s non-Sopranos podcast The Frotcast in which we talk movies, sports, stuff we find on the internet, and much MUCH more. This week we had Pod Yourself A Gun producer Brent Flyberg on to talk “Those Who Wish Me Dead.” Give yourself the gift of continued Matt Lieb and Vince Mancini content while they prepare for season 5 of PYAG by going to www.patreon.com/frotcast and subscribing!

Description:

Of all of the movie roles that Angelina Jolie has chosen not to pass on in her long and illustrious career, this one might be the absolute worst. This week on your favorite podcast, Vince and Matt invite PYAG producer Brent Flyberg to the virtual Frotquarters to talk HBO Max’s “Those Who Wish Me Dead” – a movie where Angelina Jolie plays a firefighter who can’t run and has to save a child from a team of hitmen who want him dead for no real reason on the order of Tyler Perry. It’s inexplicable. It makes no sense. And, in a way, it’s glorious. It’s like a movie written by cocaine. Like if cocaine got the Dr Frankenstein treatment, was zapped into being and decided to write a screenplay. We also talk about Bill Gates again, the dark side of Bob Ross and how Mr. Rogers definitely had some skeletons in his closet. It’s a great episode. Enjoy!


413: Whitecaps, with David Roth from the Distraction podcast



A cast of pod which the world, every morning, strains and pushes out of its butt. 

 

On the newest edition of Pod Yourself A Gun, David Roth from Defector Media and The Distraction podcast joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season four episode thirteen, “Whitecaps.”

 

The season four finale is widely regarded as one of the series’ best, and will ask you, if you can, to imagine where you are on the pecking order. A call from Irina leaves Carmela feeling low, and tears the Sopranos family away from each other and from the beach house from which the episode gets its title.

 

Even with Tony’s breathing sounding, as David points out, like a pug on a hot day, the episode has Edie Falco and James Gandolfini turning in two of the finest performances ever seen on television. They both won Emmy’s for this.

 

If there were awards for great single-serving Sopranos jerkass characters, I would definitely give one to the episode’s other star, Alan Sapinsly, or as he calls himself, “A.S.” He owns the house Tony wants to buy and boy does he want you to know he’s a lawyer and he knows what “tort” means. What a perfect Sundance swag hat-wearing a*hole.

We’re taking a short break in between seasons, so tell us how much you miss us in a five star review on Apple Podcasts.

412: Eloise, with Desi Jedeikin from Hollywood Crime Scene



Paulie Walnuts presents: A Goomba’s Guide to Loving Your Mom. 

Fresh from the oven like some scones Carmela Soprano baked for the “Fabio of The Sopranos,” as guest Desi Jedeikin from the Hollywood Crime Scene podcast calls Furio, there’s a piping hot new episode of Pod Yourself a Gun. It’s about dang time Matt and Vince got Desi on the show, as she introduced former guest and Hollywood Crime Scene co-host Rachel Fischer to The Sopranos. Her and the boys are talking about season four, episode twelve, “Eloise.”

This episode is more fun than taking a bunch of old ladies to see The Producers on Broadway, and if you say otherwise I will personally come to your place and smother you to death with a pillow like Paulie does to that old crone Minnie. Or, at least I’ll settle the dispute they had on the podcast about whether or not it’s possible to smother someone to death with a pillow. Don’t make me find out. You look like you have weak lungs.

To complement the pillow talk, there is also a bangin’ Bada-B story song parody about standing too close to a helicopter while urinating, and a discussion of Paulie’s performative mom love. He loves Nucci, but also he needs everyone in his immediate vicinity to know how much he loves Nucci. It’s sweet but gross — kind of like your mom.

Now that you have been thoroughly berated, tell us how great we are in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

TEASER: Matt Lieb is Engaged and More News



Here’s a little teaser from our latest bonus Frotcast episode for Patreon. Matt Lieb shares some very special news about commitment: he is engaged, and also another thing that you’ll find out about at the end of the teaser. Also, 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.

Pod Yourself A Gun: The Mailbag Episode, Part 1



Parvati Wasatch finally acknowledges the only Sopranos podcast.

The piggies have become the slop creators, as Matt, Vince, and producer Brent are eating up listener-submitted voicemails and emails on a special mailbag edition of Pod Yourself a Gun. We answer questions like, which civilian Sopranos character would be the best earner? What’s the most appealing food on the show? and would you eat your wife’s placenta? We get into it on the pod, but I would not only eat my wife’s placenta, I would eat your wife’s placenta. I truly think if I could eat a placenta every day, my body would be so strong I would never die.

We also have a very special voicemail from Janice Soprano herself. Aida Turturro calls in to sing happy birthday to Matt in four or five different styles . This is definitely the result of diligent booking and not a Cameo
