[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. 


513: All Due Respect, with David J Roth from The Distraction



Do You Believe Sopranos Bus Tour

For the final episode of Pod Yourself A Gun season five, writer, podcaster and listener-requested returning guest David J. Roth from Defector Media and The Distraction Podcast chats with Matt and Vince about The Sopranos season five episode thirteen, “All Due Respect.”

Somehow during David’s first appearance, we skipped over David’s experience applying for a job as a Sopranos bus tour guide in New Jersey. He didn’t get the job, which he seems fine with, but that’s a real Sliding Doors moment. He probably lies awake on the nights when running a successful subscription-based sports blog feels hard and wonders how different his life would be if he had spent more of his twenties riding a bus to and from Satin Dolls (the real life strip club used for shooting the Bada Bing scenes).

David also famously taught Matt how to use autotune, so a significant portion of the audience might be mad at him, but this week’s Cher inspired Bada-B song is, to quote David, “A triumph.”

TEASER: Stinky Johnny Depp and Cancel Culture



Here’s your teaser for this week’s Frotcast. You can listen to the full episode on Patreon!

DESCRIPTION:

What a week for streaming premium HBO content. Joey Avery is back in the virtual Frotquarters talking about being engaged, podcasts about wives, Johnny Depp’s cancel culture takes, and Princess Diana movies! Also, Matt and Vince watched both Scenes from a Marriage and Malignant. Well we only talk about Malignant at the end for a little but it’s still a good conversation. Real good stuff. Have fun!


TEASER: Hitler v The Devil



New Frotcast this week is sans Vince but he will be back next week. Here’s a clip where Jason Webb explains the Hitler vs The Devil subplot of the show Preacher. You can listen to the full episode here, on Patreon! 

Description:

Hey all, Vince is off this week taking care of his little baby but don’t you worry, he will be back next week to talk movies with all of us. In the meantime, Matt brought our favorite southern gentleman, Jason Webb, back on to the pod to talk Vince’s Netflix account, baby stuff, Jason’s hacker/lock-picking skills, and AMC’s Preacher. Also, Matt tries to explain the Matrix to Jason. Enjoy!


511: The Test Dream, with Felix Biederman of Chapo Trap House



Wetwork Dreams

Felix Biederman of the Chapo Trap House podcast joins Matt & Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five episode twelve, “The Test Dream.”

As the title of the episode suggests, the improbably named Brian Benben would feel right at home, as Tony is Dream-ing On through much of the runtime. Dream sequences are a polarizing topic on this podcast, but even Vince has to agree with Felix that while it may run long, it does feel like an actual stress dream. Teeth are falling out, there’s a thing Tony needs to do that he can’t get done, and wait, who was he just having sex with? Classic dream stuff.

If you’re less interested in what your brain is up to at night, and more interested modern murder techniques, stick around for a digression about the practicality of the garrote as a killing device. Seems hard to use. Like you’d have to practice at home. Imagine that — a little practice garrote next to the Bowflex adjustable dumbbells in that corner of the garage you call the weight room. It’s all just collecting dust and then one day you’re trying to take out a rat and your arms are shaking and you’re all out of position and you think, man, why did I buy all that gear?

What would be your weapon of choice if you were to murder one of us? Let us know in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

TEASER: I’m a Chinese citizen, I have a joke with regards to your soft drink



Hey all,

Vince had a baby! So this week’s Frotcast is just Matt Lieb and Joe Sinclitico talking movies and Fentanyl deaths. Here is a teaser from our conversation about Fent and anti-Chinese racism. You can listen to the full episode on our Patreon. Become a subscriber NOW! Anyway, here is the description of the full ep:


 

Well, it’s happened. Vince Mancini has an adorable little newborn baby. Unfortunately, that means he had to be in the hospital all day rather than frotcast with me, so this week me and Joe Sinclitico grabbed the reigns and talked movies and junk. We discussed everything from babies, to fentanyl overdoses, to HBO’s Reminiscence by Westworld creator Lisa Joy. Despite the absence of Vince, it is a very good episode that I know you will enjoy.


508: Marco Polo, with the Amazing Allie Goertz



At the Sauseech Swinging Party Down the Line

On the latest Pod Yourself A Gun, TV writer, musician, Simpsons expert and former MAD magazine editor Allie Goertz joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos most dudes rockingest episode yet, season four episode eight, “Marco Polo.”

Tony the party host is off-color joking and sauseech swinging to celebrate Hugh DeAngelis’s 75th birthday, even if Mary DeAngelis and former assistant to the Ambassador to the Vatican Dr Russ Fegoli are too sophisticated to appreciate it. As pointed out on the podcast, Tony and the crew are mobsters but they are also boring suburbanites who care about kitchen appliances and making a good impression on their in-laws’ stuffy friends. Ordinary fangul people, Madonn’!

Allie reveals that she was inspired by some of Tony’s therapy scenes to raise some topics in her actual therapy sessions, proving that watching The Sopranos (and listening to the only podcast about it) is a form of self-care. So please, take care of yourself. We’ve been meaning to tell you, we’re worried about you. You do not look well lately. There is no shame in reaching out to a friend (to tell them about the pod).

507: In Camelot, with Shereen Younes of Ethnically Ambiguous



What could you possibly pod to me that I haven’t already gun through?

Shereen Younes from the Ethnically Ambiguous podcast returns to the only Sopranos podcast to palaver with Matt and Vince about season five episode seven, “Camelot.”

During their stimulating conversation, we learn that Shereen, unlike Valentina, is not a fan of all pranks. She’s generally pro-Bad Trip pranks, and generally anti-Borat pranks.

More importantly, this episode of The Sopranos introduces us to one of the show’s best ancillary characters, JT Dolan, the television writer Chris meets at an AA meeting. The Sopranos writer’s room clearly loved using Tim Daly’s character to absolutely dunk on the very idea of writing for television. Maybe if he were a screenwriter, with an Oscar, they would have some respect for him.
