Piecing It Together

An All Points West Podcast

Joker (Featuring Chad Clinton Freeman & Ryan Daugherty)

On the 93rd episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined again by Chad Clinton Freeman and Ryan Daugherty to complete our trilogy of nerdy episodes by talking about Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. Following up our conversations on Glass and Godzilla King Of The Monsters, we take on quite possibly the most divisive movie of the year. Puzzle pieces include Taxi Driver, The King Of Comedy, Fight Club and Falling Down.

Yesterday (Featuring James Anderson)

On the 92nd episode of Piecing It Together, James Anderson joins me to talk about the Danny Boyle film Yesterday, about a world in which everyone forgets The Beatles existed. Everyone except one man, who just so happens to know how to play their tunes and pretends they’re his. Puzzle pieces include Big, Across The Universe, Forrest Gump and Bohemian Rhapsody.

Ad Astra (Featuring Rico Albarracin)

On the 91st episode of Piecing It Together, Rico Albarracin from Always The Critic Podcast joins me to talk about the James Gray / Brad Pitt space epic Ad Astra. It just hit me that we made it through an entire 40 minute episode about this movie without saying the phrase “daddy issues.” Puzzle pieces include Event Horizon, Goodfellas, Ex Machina and Interstellar.

Rambo: Last Blood (Featuring David Michor)

On the 90th episode of Piecing It Together, my friend David Michor, a filmmaker and Stallone fanatic joins me to discuss the latest (and possibly last) in the Rambo series, Rambo: Last Blood. We do our best to give it the puzzle pieces treatment, but the conversation mostly goes off the rails, much like the movie itself… Puzzle pieces include Cold Pursuit, Home Alone and Halloween.

Brittany Runs A Marathon (Featuring Catherine Gonzales)

On the 89th episode of Piecing It Together, Catherine Gonzales from Shuffle Online joins me to talk about Brittany Runs A Marathon, a film about a woman who decides to make a change her life. Starring Jillian Bell, it’s a sweet movie with a great message. Puzzle pieces include The Big Sick, Rocky, Yes Man and Heavyweights.

Las Vegas Weekly Article

In case you missed it over on our social medias, the Las Vegas Weekly did a feature on me this week. Written by Leslie Ventura, it talks about all of the podcast work I’ve been doing with Piecing It Together as well as Bird Road, Awesome Movie Year and the upcoming All Rice No Beans.

LIVE from Sin City Horror Fest Wrap-Up

This past Sunday, September 15th Piecing It Together held its first live recording of the podcast during the 3rd annual Sin City Horror Fest. Film-critic Josh Bell of Awesome Movie Year Podcast and filmmaker/festival co-creator Drew Marvick joined me to discuss the shot-on-VHS horror-comedy, The Head. The film’s writer/director Michael Keene also joined us to talk about the film’s influences.

The Head (LIVE from Sin City Horror Fest)

On the 88th episode of Piecing It Together, it’s our first LIVE episode! We recorded in the theater right after the Sin City Horror Fest screening of The Head, an homage to shot-on-VHS horror of the 80s. Joining me is many-time co-host Josh Bell, first time co-host (and Sin City Horror Fest co-founder) Drew Marvick, and The Head’s writer/director Michael Keene. Puzzle pieces include Dead Alive, Re-Animator, Psycho and Desperate Living.

It Chapter Two (Featuring Tim Schermer)

On the 87th episode of Piecing It Together, Tim Schermer joins us to talk about It Chapter Two, the sequel to one of the most successful horror movies of all time. It’s based on the classic Stephen King novel and focuses on the grown up Loser’s Club taking on Pennywise the clown once and for all… Puzzle pieces include Nightmare On Elm Street, Beetlejuice, The Thing and Sam Raimi films.

Ready Or Not (Featuring JC Screen Fix)

On the 86th episode of Piecing It Together, JC from Screen Fix Podcast joins me to discuss the horror-comedy Ready Or Not. Initially a movie I planned on skipping due to the fact that I didn’t really love it, it seems like everyone keeps talking about this silly little movie, so we figured we might as well do it. Puzzle pieces include Game Night, Get Out, You’re Next and Surviving The Game.
