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.

TEASER: The Gay Mafia and The Suicide Squad



Hey all,

Just a reminder to become a Patron of the frotcast now and listen to our bonus content. 

This week we talk about The Suicide Squad, and other things. Description Below!


What’s up Frotters? Time for your weekly dose of content and we couldn’t be more excited about it. This week Matt and Vince watched the new and improved Suicide Squad movie on HBO Max. It’s like the other one only it’s better, and yet still just a movie about super people. We have mixed feelings but all-in-all it was a solid B+. Also, we talk about the new host of Jeopardy, celebrity bathing habits, and Matt Damon’s use of slurs. It’s a great episode. I love you.


TEASER: The Whoopi Goldberg Pass



Hey all,

New Patreon exclusive is out right now for Frotcast patreon subscribers. This episode we talk about The Green Knight eventually, but also a lot of other subjects including this excerpt about how Will Smith and Whoopi Goldberg can do no wrong. Description below!


What an episode! This week Matt and Vince invite comedian Jason Webb into the virtual Frotquarters to talk about many subjects and things. It’s very hot in California so both Vince and Matt have forgotten the majority of the conversation. Something about Dragula, something about David Ayers writing a defense of his Suicide Squad, a whole bit about Woody Allen defenders. And finally, a discussion of the movie The Green Knight and how Matt snuck Taco Bell into the theater. Great content all around


505: Irregular Around The Margins, with PFT Commenter of Pardon My Take



Tony please don’t cuck me just because you can 

Writer and podcaster PFT Commenter from the Pardon My Take podcast joins Matt & Vince to teach you how to get a 2nd slice at The House of Prime Rib and also talk about The Sopranos season five episode five “Irregular Around the Margins.”

If you’re worried about spoilers, first of all, I’m surprised you’re still listening, but skip the first seven minutes. There, you’ve been warned.

Adriana’s got stress-induced IBS because of the war in the Middle East and Christopher is not a sympathetic partner. As pointed out in the podcast, Christoper is a collection of bad boyfriend cliches, which is maybe why everyone believed that she would hook up with Tony. It really looked like they were going to do it, if they hadn’t been in that car accident. This has the guys wondering, is it possible for two people to go on a late night coke run platonically? That conversation dovetails into a surprisingly detailed discussion of the attractiveness of every Flinstones character (they’re all pretty hot).

Who is the hottest Flintstones character? Tell us in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

TEASER: Lumcoin, a new crytpo



Hey all,

The following is a teaser for Frotcast 481, available right now on our Patreon. Join now!

Description:

It’s just one of those days. Or three.

Woodstock 99 will forever go down in history as one of the biggest concert disasters in history and the new HBO Max documentary about it does absolutely nothing to dispel that myth. On this week’s Frotcast, Matt and Vince welcome back Frotcast favorite Joey Devine (from Roundball Rock) to discuss what they got wrong in the new documentary, and how at this point we need to stop blaming Fred Durst for everything.

We also talk about Spike Lee’s crypto commercial, different types of sandals, and some other stuff.


504: All Happy Families, with Tanner Johnson of DuckTales



You either die an AJ or live long enough to see yourself become a Janice.

On the latest Pod Yourself a Gun, writer and director Tanner Johnson from the new DuckTales series joins Matt and Vince to talk about season five episode four of The Sopranos, “All Happy Families.”

Your second and third favorite numetal meatheads go in depth on your favorite nu metal meathead, AJ Soprano. Written by Toni Kalem, the same Toni Kalem who plays Angie Bonpensiero, this episode is peak AJ. He goes to a Mudvayne concert, does some fat bong rips, lies to his parents, brags about being “learning disabled,” and gets mad at his mom about drums. He does not, however do any poppers or have weird sex.

We are also introduced to Tony Blundetto’s weird twin children who he managed to father while in prison. We learn that Tone somehow snuck his cousin’s seed out of the clink. As noted during the pod, this likely means that someone had to keister a Tony B. load to get it past security. Love to see dudes helping dudes.
