A New Yorker for 20 years, Michael Giese moved here from Iowa in 2001. An actor in commercials, television, film and stage…and good friend.
I’m laying it out for you now, if a racist has slipped in to the audience… Welcome.
Listen closely, we’re talking about you… Fucker.
What up yo.
New month, new podcast Oldboy and I sat down in front of the microphones and hit record on my overpriced MacBook Pro to discuss Tarantino’s new film, Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood, and to celebrate the cinematic achievement it is.
We then dive into Martin Scorsese’s new teaser trailer for The Irishman which dropped the previous day and teams Marty back up with Robert De Niro in a film that will be released in theaters and on Netflix come fall.
And finally to wrap it all up, I ask the question I probably should have been more careful to ask, “What did you think of the final season of Game Of Thrones”?
A great battle ensues.
I say the last season was rushed, with flashes of brilliance and laziness. I didn’t realize we were at war until I saw the look on Oldboy’s face change.
He didn’t agree with my assessment, he instead fought on behalf of D&D, hailing the series as a masterpiece…final season included.
This is a raw, uncut 120 minute podcast people…chapter 25 of The Chronicles Of Wes And Oldboy.

The Chronicles Of Wes & Oldboy
A Podcast For Cinephiles
From Voices Film & TV https://voicesfilm.com
What is it:
Voices Film & TV is a blog I, Wes Candela, started 5 years ago. Based out of New York City, it was born out of pure desire to Voice my praise of the extraordinary work that exists in television and cinema.
2 years later, I, along with my brother-in-arms Oldboy, conceived:
The Chronicles Of Wes & Oldboy
This would be a podcast where we could literally voice our praise and love of all things film & television.
Filmmaker’s. Cinematographers. Actors and actresses.
In short, visual storytelling.
We are die-hard Cinephiles.
Devoted to celebrating the art of visual storytelling and expression in film, television and music. We celebrate pop culture, news, people that live with passion and realize their dreams, cultural icons… Inspirational people who live hard, and their wonderful achievements.
Leave Your Mark.
Wes Candela, 2018
