TEASER: Frotcast 489 – Joe Becomes A Pawn In The Culture War



For the full episode, become a $5 patron at Patreon.com/Frotcast! 

Howdy, Frot fans! Matt Lieb is off living his dreams on Maui, drinking virgin daquiris and getting his picture taken with parrots like a 10-year-old, but as we know, the Frot sleeps for no one, not even when they’re getting lei’d. This week your old pals, comedian Joe Sinclitico and Whoop Dreams star Laremy Legel, are in the virtual Frotquarters to talk about how we’re old and nothing works anymore (…societally), and how it sucks that when you become a father you lose the ability to get in fights with local teens, even when they’ve been very unfair to you. Joe saw the James Bond, No I Will Not Go Out And Die Tonight, so we discuss that, and how we could fix the James Bond franchise. After that, we discuss the latest NFT scandal, with the Evolved Ape NFTs and try to understand what the hell NFTs even are. And whether it counts as fraud if you get ripped off in the act of trying to participate in a Ponzi scheme. Meanwhile, Laremy reveals that he owns NFTs himself, and that he’s heavily invested in animals who play in gutters. We also talk Dave Chappelle, and far too late into the show, Joe reveals that he recently became the inadvertent center of a culture war incident and damn near got himself torn apart by an angry mob. In all honesty, that’s the way I always assumed Joe would go.

One thing I’m annoyed that I didn’t say in the show is that I really wish Ben was still alive to make fun of NFTs. Whenever we talk about them I think about how no one I know would appreciate the humor of NFTs like Ben would. As long as you think about Ben riffing on NFTs with us, maybe a little bit of Ben is still alive in our hearts.


[Unlocked] Frotcast 488 – Venom Let There Be Kidney Ladies with Zack Chapaloni



Hey all,

As you are no doubt aware, we are currently prepping for season 6a of Pod Yourself A Gun, and so while you are waiting we figured we should attempt to coax you into subscribing to the Filmdrunk Frotcast! This episode is available in the free feed but there are also bonus episodes every week on our Patreon. So please sub to the free Filmdrunk Frotcast feed wherever you get your pods and then please sub to the Patreon. You’ll love it!

Time for your weekly dose of content slop from your favorite “movie” podcast, the Filmdrunk Frotcast. This week, Matt and Vince welcome comedian Zack Chapaloni back to the Frot to talk about that New York Times Magazine piece about the lady who donated a kidney and was mad that her writer friends didn’t congratulate her enough on Facebook and then sued one of them. It’s an amazing story. Also, the boys talk about Venom: Let There Be Carnage which is a movie in which a gay-coded slime monster comes out of the closet only to realize everything he ever wanted was right under his alien smelling organ the whole time. Finally, Matt has a very important message for all progressive organizers out there.


ANNOUNCEMENT: Many Saints of Discord Live Riff! 10/4 @ 6pm PST



Matt Lieb here with a special Pod Yourself a Gun/Frotcast announcement. On Monday, October 4, at 6pm PST, Vince Mancini, Brent Flyberg and I will be watching and talking over The Many Saints of Newark live on Discord. We haven’t done a live riff episode in a while and this is our first time doing it on Discord so it’s sure to be a fun time watching Vince scream at his computer because of technical problems. I will also be bad at it, but Vince is funnier when he’s mad at computers.

In the past, our monthly movie riff episode has been exclusively for the $20 patrons but since we haven’t done this in a while and NEVER done it on Discord, for this month only, anyone at the $5 tier or above will be able to watch with us. Once you subscribe to our Patreon, you will automatically be assigned a role on Discord and we are allowing ALL ROLES to watch with us. If you have any technical issues we will try our best to work them out with you. But if Vince can do it, so can you. 

OK see y’all Monday Cctober 4th at 6pm PST for the Many Saints of Newark live riff.
