On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Stephanie Barajas of All Rice No Beans, the restaurant podcast that I produce, joins me to talk about our five favorite food moments in movies. As two lovers of food, it was a fun crossover for us to do, especially since this whole quarantine situation we’re all living through has us unable to enjoy restaurants and food in the way we’re all used to.Read More

On the 96th episode of Piecing It Together, Isaac Vanegas from The Broken Mug Podcast joins me to discuss the Kumail Nanjiani / Dave Bautista / Uber team-up action comedy Stuber. Is it a great movie? Not exactly. Was it hilarious? Not really. Did it have a lot of awesome action? Not particularly… But hey, it wasn’t that bad. Puzzle pieces include Lethal Weapon, Crank, Collateral and I Love You Man.Read More

On the 34th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Josh Bell and I discuss a24’s Never Goin’ Back, a funny, crazy new comedy about the misadventures of two young female stoners.

On the 22nd episode of Piecing It Together, first time co-host Hunter Farris and I talk about Ant-Man & The Wasp, the Marvel action-adventure comedy frequently described as a lightweight side piece to the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe story that both of us quite frankly like more than the rest of the series. Directed by Peyton Reed and starring Paul Rudd, Michael Pena, Evangeline Lily and Michael Douglas, the Ant-Man series mixes everything you love about superhero movies with more laughs, more fun and more crazy sci-fi tech. Puzzle pieces include the Mission Impossible series, Pirates of the Caribbean 2, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and the Harold & Kumar series.Read More

On the 1st episode of a special episode series called Breaking It Apart, co-host Kris Krainock and I take a look not at a new movie and what movies inspired it, but at a classic movie and what movies were inspired BY it… And the first one we’re doing is the cult classic Coen Brothers’ film The Big Lebowski. The Dude. Walter. Donny. The Jesus. The Nihilists. Bunny. So many classic characters in such a beautifully complicated yet ridiculous story that blends dark comedy, modern film noir and stoners. The Big Lebowski has inspired countless films, and on this first Breaking It Apart special episode, we get into a bunch of them and what makes this film and the Coen Brothers themselves so special. Puzzle pieces include The Nice Guys, Observe and Report, Brick and In Bruges.
And for those keeping track of the Piecing It Together Podcast, just know that special series and episodes like this will continue to be a part of the future of the show, and we’ll continue figuring out the best way to brand them and tie them in to the overall puzzle theme as we continue doing them. While some special episodes will be a once in a while thing, Breaking It Apart will be a regular occurrence so we’re going to number them starting with this one.
