Of Season 1, and Beyond!

March 1, 2018

We – Summre, Chris and Bart – want to thank all of you who have listened to all or part of our first season, which began on January 3, 2018, and ran through February 7, with a special bonus episode (on last year's Oscar-nominated short and feature-length documentaries) on February 21. We have a lot of fun putting these together, and hope that they are equally as enjoyable to the rest of you. We are also grateful to the filmmakers we profile for making such interesting movies.

As Bart and Chris prepare to head to SXSW 2018 (which runs March 9-17), in Austin, TX, we will record one more bonus episode (to post on Wednesday, March 7), which will be a teaser of a few documentaries playing at the festival. Our plan after that is to begin running our second season on Wednesday, March 21, which will begin with an episode recorded, in all or in part, from that festival, itself. We wish we could all three meet up in Austin, but fear not, as we are formulating plans to do so in Washington, DC, in June, at the annual AFI DOCS.

Remember that you can find us on iTunes, SoundCloud and Stitcher, and also listen to the show on our episodes page. Happy podcasting!
