Frotcast 242: ‘The Jinx’ vs. ‘Serial,’ ‘Divergent,’ And ‘I Hate Christian Laettner’

Listen on the player above, or download as an mp3 here (right click, save as).

This week on the Frotcast, we talk The Jinx and Robert Durst. The appeal of the show, is it closure or characters? Or is it just that Robert Durst is nuts in so many different ways that it seems like there’s a new one every week? And why would people feel closure at the end of the show, because the weird guy was talking to himself? Wouldn’t any rational human being know that did it from the very beginning? Did you hear the story about his rubber mask? About him killing his dogs? So we talk about that for a while, and compare it to Serial. Then we bring on Laremy Legel to talk about 30 for 30’s I Hate Christian Laettner and tell us about The Divergent Series: Insurgent. As Bret says, “This is the dumbest book I’ve ever had told to me.”

Matt also tells the story about a listener trying to make Matt look bad so he could have sex with his girlfriend. No snitching!
