Shownotes

On the 331st episode of Piecing It Together, Shahab Zargari joins me to talk about Dumb Money. The ridiculous true story of Roaring Kitty and the rise of the GameStop stocks gave us an interesting setup to get into lots of different kinds of movies. Puzzle pieces include The Big Short, The Social Network, Office Space and The YouTube Effect.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for Dumb Money and the movies we discuss!

Written by Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo

Directed by Craig Gillespie

Starring Paul Dano, Pete Davidson, America Ferrera, Seth Rogen, Nick Offerman, Anthony Ramos
