I’ve listened to the first three podcasts and now want to see the films. What a great way to get a taste of things to come and hear the background of each doc from he creators’ point of view and insight into their passions and processes.
Very interesting to get to hear the side of the story from the documentarians directly. Entertaining even if you haven’t seen the documentary being discussed, and if you have seen the titular movie it’s a great follow up listen.
