Exceptional Show — A Must-Listen!
I just finished listening to "The Documentary Blog Podcast," Episode 1. Even though this is its maiden voyage, "The Doc Podcast" already ranks among the top 25 film podcasts (and I listen to a lot of podcasts). As documentary filmmakers themselves, the hosts are knowledgeable and well-informed, which yields a show that is both educational and entertaining. They stick to their promised, topical niche (documentary films and filmmaking), allowing them the time to speak in-depth about their area of expertise, and presumably, the subject matter that listeners are tuning in for. I'd warmly recommend this podcast to anyone interested in the cinema, and it's a must-listen for all doc filmmakers and enthusiasts.
Anyone interested in new documentaries around the industry, reviews, technical discussion, and all around interesting dialog from guys who love reality and the art of capturing it, you should definitely check out this podcast.
One of a kind!
Though compared to Creative Screenwriting and Film Junk by its hosts, this podcast is truly one of a kind. It is destined to be one of the great podcasts and if you love documentaries, this is the only podcast for you.
