Podcast Overlord Interview with David Rosen of "Piecing it Together" Podcast
We spoke recently with David Rosen of Piecing it Together Podcast about what makes his show tick.
Please tell me little about your podcast:
On Piecing It Together I take a look at a new movie with the help of a revolving cast of guest co-hosts and we come up with a list of "puzzle pieces" which are other movies, filmmakers or other things that we think inspired the film we're discussing.
What makes your podcast unique?
The format allows us to get into conversations about lots of other great movies along the way, rather than just simply reviewing the new movie like most movie podcasts do.
How long have you been doing this?:
In March it will be a year.
Are you able to do this full time?
I don't know about full time but I've consistently been able to have at least 4 episodes a month (one a week). Sometimes more.
What motivates you?
I love going to the movies and I thought it would be fun to not only talk about them with people, but also justify all the time I spend at the theater.
What is your passion?
Aside from movies I also compose music. I compose for film, commercials, and other kinds of media. I also release albums of instrumental music.
How has twitter helped your career (if at all):
Strangely Twitter was always ineffective with my music career but has been really great for the podcast. A lot of my Podcast's reach is thanks go Twitter.
What’s the best thing about doing what you do?:
Getting to talk to people about movies all the time! I love watching and discussing movies.
What the worst?:
Promotion, promotion, promotion. It never ends. But you gotta do what you gotta do, right?
Do you believe in Bigfoot?
I don't know if I necessarily BELIEVE in Bigfoot but I know the guy who took the famous photo. My family has a record store called Wax Trax Records here in Las Vegas and he used to be a big customer of ours and friend of my dad's.
