Brian Koppelman: 8Track
8 songs lead the way in each conversation, so "8Track" is definitely more than a mixtape, and I hope you enjoy it and spread the word.
Our first guest is writer, producer and showrunner Brian Koppelman. He's built an impressive resume over the last 20+ years, best known for his work on the Showtime series "Billions," and films like "Rounders" and "Oceans Thirteen."
Brian also began his career in the music industry, working in A&R, and currently hosts the podcast "The Moment." So "8Track" brought all of those worlds together as Brian chose a theme for his picks: “Songs that could be movies but weren’t written by Bruce, Lou, Joni or Bob.”
