On the 57th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host David Quinones and I discuss Childish Gambino's 50 minute semi-feature Guava Island, which debuted on Amazon Prime during his Coachella set. Part film, part music video collection, it's a unique vision, as we should all expect from the team behind Atlanta and Childish Gambino's "This Is America" music video. Puzzle pieces include Lemonade, Spirited Away, Inside Llewyn Davis and Sorry To Bother You.
This episode is a special cross-over with our other podcast Bird Road Podcast. Be sure to check out Bird Road at https://www.birdroadpodcast.com and on all the major podcast apps that you can find Piecing It Together on.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Guava Island (and any other movies we discussed)!

The song at the end of the episode is “I Wanna Get Away," a song from a hip-hop artist named Skydro who I produced years ago. The track reminded me of the vibe in Guava Island so I thought it would be a good fit for the episode. "I Wanna Get Away" is from Skydro's album Success Storieswhich is available on iTunes, Spotify and all major digital music services.
