First episode is hopefully an indicator of how Roy looks at issues from different perspectives in future podcasts. Wes’ story is eye-opening and gives hope to anyone touched by the criminal justice system.
Roy is a Voice for the Voiceless
I was very inspired by these podcasts, and my kids and I listen to them together on drive to drop off at school. Roy presents a measured and logical perspective that helps to remind us that true strength lies in our differences, not our similarities. I feel that this is especially vital now, a time of intellectual disorder and a sinister focus on “Otherness”.
Excellent podcast from a top documentary filmmaker
Not surprised that this amazing documentary filmmaker has produced a podcast that I love. Roy's documenantaries are moving, profound, intense films that I can't stop raving about. He cares about people and their plight. He just has a curiousity and a passion for learning and gaining understanding and and this is coupled with an ability to present people's stories in a way that will glue you to your listening device.
