Frotcast 155: Bling Ring, Full Metal Jacket, ‘Dunked On’, Rape Jokes

Listen on the player above, or download this week’s episode as an mp3 here (right-click, “save as.”)

It’s a Froggy Fresh edition of the Frotcast this week, as our guest David Gborie had to bail, and Ben’s still in Asia, so it’s just the boys – Vince, Brendan, and Bret. But we still have lots of fun! We offer your updates on Fantasy Summer Box Office, I saw The Bling Ring (review to come next week), we talk about the curious political subtexts of 80s movies and current movies, discuss our favorite Vietnam movies, tell BART stories, and, because so many people demanded it, we talk about Lindy West and Jim Norton’s “rape joke” “debate” from Kamau Bell’s show this past week, and our culture’s endless desire for contrived debates in general. Fun! Community! Podcasts!

Also, we want you guys to tell your friends about the Frotcast, but we don’t know how to describe it. Any suggestions? Leave them below or send them in.
