Episodes

115. "The Man Who Saw Through Japan"  

It’s been a long wait but Filip and Fredrik are back! Fredrik feels we are living in a “Burger Bubble”. But what does it all mean? Filip reviews the documentary “Ants On A Shrimp” and its delight of fish semen. Plus, the duo prove that Japanese culture is fooling the rest of the world. Fredrik is using a meditation app but doesn’t like the return on his effort. Filip cries to no avail with his new mental coach. All this and much more on an all new Filip and Fredrik Podcast!

160. Fixing A Hole  

All Rejoice! They’re back. Filip and Fredrik return once again after being in movie hell. Things are looking up as the dynamic duo’s first feature film officially starts shooting in a week. But that won’t calm their nerves. After hearing how Johnny Depp forced a change in the script in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Filip and Fredrik won’t be relaxed until their film is on the big screen. Also, upon learning that Paul McCartney will have a cameo in the new “Pirates” movie, along with Keith Richards, Fredrik feel the new Disney film is where old rockers come to die. Filip and Fredrik think Sir Paul’s acting choice is a bit safe. What if there was a bolder idea? What if the Beatle great decided on making his first porn called, “Fixing A Hole?” Would anyone want to see it? Would even the sleaziest distributors on earth refuse to put it out? The Swedish greats answer these questions and more on an all new Filip & Fredrik Podcast!

159. "När Tord stänger av routern"  

Veckans avsnitt spelas delvis in från kontoret på en restaurang i Arboga. Det är bråda tider i filminspelningen och känslan av att kliva på äggskal när man pratar med kunnigt filmfolk är stark. Filip försöker ge sken inför filmteamet av att han kan något om ljussättning inför en ljusmästare från Göteborg, när han i själva verket aldrig lagt märke till om scener är filmade i dagsljus eller om de är ljussatta. Tiden för invalsande dokumentärfilminspelningar är över så Fredrik tar en själarenande promenad i Hagaparken och lägger andaktsfullt handen på en varm sten, gråter och saknar sin barndoms harmoniska stunder. Och så inser Filip att alla har nog en Tord Grip och Sven-Göran ”Svennis” Eriksson på varsin axel, frågan är bara vilken man väljer att vara?

158. Movie Hell  

Greetings from Movie Hell. Deep in production on their first feature film Filip and Fredrik are missing in action from their beloved podcast this week. But fear not! Tune into a loving crafted best of the Filip and Fredrik Podcast featuring some of their greatest moments. And it all starts off with a very heartfelt letter from Filip and Fredrik, the straight from the movie trenches, as read by their editor, to you, their loyal listeners. Is there anything Leonardo DiCaprio won’t do for an Oscar? Can one overcome the infamy of bad breath? Is Chris Pine the worst Hollywood has to offer? Can anyone really enjoy free-form jazz? Is there anyone better at sauna sex than a Swede? All these questions and more will be answered on this week’s Filip & Fredrik Podcast!

157. "Sista fjärilen"  

I veckans avsnitt slås Filip av att fiskare gärna kastar tillbaka fisken i vattnet, ett tecken på en humanism som är långt från jägares syn på sina byten. Fredrik har empiriskt lyckas knäcka hela brandvarnarindustrins hemliga företagsmodell, för att senare återigen briljera i sifferminneskunskap. Dokumentären om PG Gyllenhammar på SVTplay blottar PG:s djupa folkförakt och Macrons ”vanligt folk” lajvande sågas. Och så beskriver Filip definitionen av ”platt” genom att läsa upp ett tvålföretags livstilscoachande säljtext från en broschyr funnen på toaletten på ett café i Stockholm. Ni glömmer väl inte Bråvalla 30 juni?!

156.  

Filip and Fredrik are back! In this week’s episode, the duo break down the restaurant “Celebrity Wall”, ranking every level of importance all the way up the ladder to the coveted top spot, “the celebrity hand-written note on a photograph with the owner.” Plus, Filip and Fredrik determine why Frank Sinatra was cliché for always visiting “La Familia” type restaurants all over the world. Plus, they detail the power the Chairman of the Board had to re-open any restaurant kitchen after if closed. Filip even argues that Frank Sinatra’s career was based on how many restaurant kitchens he could re-open. But which celebrity today has the power to continue in Sinatra’s footsteps? You don’t what to miss the answer! Also, Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Film critic, only has 2600 Instagram followers. Filip and Fredrik recall feeling like nobodies after getting seated in the back garden at The Waverly Inn. Don’t miss this triumphant and hysterical return of The Filip & Fredrik Podcast!

155. "Filips vidriga väntan på gryningen"  

I veckans avsnitt berättar Filip om de dramatiska minuterna när en främmande man, för bara ett par dagar sedan, försökte bryta sig in i hans hus i LA kl två på natten. Paniken, skräcken, 911-samtalet, LAPD-chopperns strålkastarljus som lyste upp hans trädgård, övervakningskameran som filmade allt. Men innan allt detta så frågar sig Fredrik var brytgränsen för riktig killfeber i USA egentligen ligger på, vem som spelar huvudrollerna i filmen om Anders Celsius och Daniel Farnheit och så pratas det om när Kjell Olof Feldt avfattar en av de mest frapperande dikterna i svensk inrikespolitik. Och så avslöjas en STOR nyhet till den som lyssnar hela vägen till slutet!

The Chinese Public Diplomacy Think Tank is buying and Filip and Fredrik are for sale! This week’s episode all starts with a cough. An ominous sign when in happens in movies. But what does this say about Filip? As interns, young Filip Hammar and Fredrik Wikingsson remember old porno magazines in the bathroom, and naked pin-up calendars in the break room in the garage shops of Sweden in 1986. Where is the only respectable place to view a porno mag? Filip reveals all! Plus, Filip and Fredrik recall their first trip in New York City and the sadness of the Times Square porno booths.

Filip’s busy life might be getting to him. He’s now crying in front of his infant son. But Fredrik thinks that may be a good thing.

Filip and Fredrik tell the tale of the Kangerlussuaq nightclub in Greenland. The duo remember seeing the most miserable turtle in all the world while visiting Greenland.

144. The Sh*t Doesn't Get Glovvier  

Fredrik is still consumed with the Orson Welles biography and reads two profound quotes from it in an all new Filip and Fredrik Podcast. What do you have to be considered a genius or an innovator? The duo also discuss the epic failures of “reverse-innovators” like Swedish cross-country skier Gunde Svan, Zola Budd, Bjorn Borg and more. Filip is worried because he always learns about celebrity deaths while sitting on the bowl. Is there a correlation? But unlike the passing of David Bowie and Lemmy, he is amazed at the lack of mourning anyone has given Chuck Berry. Many artist have checkered pasts and are forgiven in death, but not, it seems, the Father of Rock and Roll. When a genius dies, what do you have to do to get a nice obituary?
