On the 108th episode of Piecing It Together, journalist Heidi Kyser joins me to talk about Bombshell, the story of Megyn Kelly, Gretchen Carlson and sexual harassment at Fox News. It’s a heavy topic but Jay Roach managed to balance the incredibly accurate performances from the likes of Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman with a story that needed to be told. Puzzle pieces include Vice, The Post and Broadcast News.
The Big Short
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.
