On this special episode of Piecing It Together, it’s a cross-over episode with my other podcast Bird Road! Q and I love talking about TV, even though I rarely make time to watch any of it… So he was the perfect person to talk about the best shows of the last decade. Along with our Top 10s we also get into some specific extra categories and it’s a great, long conversation.

An All Points West Podcast
On the 106th episode of Piecing It Together, Chad Clinton Freeman joins me to talk about one of his favorite subjects… Shia LaBeouf and his new film Honey Boy. Directed by Alma Har’el from a story written by LaBeouf about his own life, and starring him as his own father… It’s a weird one. And a great one. Puzzle pieces include Private Parts, Adaptation, American Honey and Birdman.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Will Hines stops by to help me out with the first in a series of special episodes that looks back at the 2010s decade. For this one, we’re looking at our favorite video games of the decade. Obviously this is a very different kind of conversation for this show, but we had a great time reminiscing about a long list of great video games.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, David’s parents share their reactions to Martin Scorsese’s gangster epic, The Irishman. Get Rich & Sunny’s thoughts on the film’s length, Netflix distribution, which actor did the best job and more all while their dog the Koda Bear licks the floor for 20 straight minutes on this ridiculous bonus episode.
On the 105th episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host Kolby Mac joins me to talk about Queen & Slim, a love story on the run starring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith as a couple whose first date is turned upside down after they kill a cop in self defense. Puzzle pieces include If Beale Street Could Talk, Fruitvale Station, Belly and Get Out.
On the 104th episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host Jay Ledbetter from InSession Film Podcast joins me to talk about one of the most awaited movies of the year, Rian Johnson’s Knives Out. With an insanely star studded cast, Knives Out gives Johnson the chance to not only make a classic whodunnit murder mystery, but send up the genre at the same time. Puzzle pieces include Clue, The Hateful 8, Get Out and Hot Fuzz.
On the 103rd episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock returns to talk about some real cinema… Marin Scorsese’s The Irishman. The Netflix film is out today after a limited theatrical run (thank you Maya Cinemas and Eclipse Cinemas for showing it here in Las Vegas!) and stars Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. Puzzle pieces include Casino, First Reformed, You Were Never Really Here and Rashoman.
On the 102nd episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host filmmaker Sean Fallon joins us to talk about James Mangold’s crowd pleaser Ford V Ferrari (or Le Mans ’66 as it’s known overseas). Starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale as the team that got Ford (and America) the historic win on the race track, it’s a great underdog story, even if I knew nothing about racing going into it. Puzzle pieces include Armageddon, The Right Stuff, The Martian and The Fighter.
On the 101st episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black joins me to discuss Edward Norton’s passion project, Motherless Brooklyn. A throwback film noir starring Norton as a tourette’s syndrome afflicted private detective, it’s a bit of a mixed bag… But a bag that’s more good than it’s bad. Mostly. Puzzle pieces include The Untouchables, Road To Perdition, Sin City and Live By Night.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, my fiancee Gina Mizzoni joins me to celebrate 100 episodes of the podcast and talk about this decade of my life. We talk about our life together, this podcast, producing podcasts, composing music, my albums, our pets, our adventures and more.
