Annette (Featuring Kris Krainock)

On the 202nd episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock joins me to talk about Leos Carax and Sparks’ bizarre new musical Annette starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard.

Sorry To Bother You (Featuring David Quinones)

On the 23rd episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host David Quinones and I actually do our first ever cross-over episode with our other show Bird Road Podcast by covering the politically charged Sorry To Bother You.

Puzzle pieces include the work of Charlie Kaufman and Michel Gondry, Office Space, They Live and Dope.
