On the 198th episode of Piecing It Together, DC super-fan Chad Clinton Freeman returns to the podcast to talk about something he loves, The Suicide Squad, and something he hates, James Gunn. Although as it turns out, The Suicide Squad is his favorite James Gunn film… And I liked it too. Puzzle pieces include Evil Dead 2, Troma’s War, Team America: World Police and Overlord.Read More

On the 124th episode of Piecing It Together, Chad Clinton Freeman joins me to talk about one of my favorite movies of this very weird year… the very weird Frances Ferguson. The story of a woman who throws it all away by way of an affair with her student, it’s uncomfortable, weird and a lot of people were very offended by it… but I loved it. Puzzle pieces include To Die For, Daria, Fight Club and Orange Is The New Black.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.
