In this bonus episode, cohosts Bart Weiss and Chris Reed talk with Oscar-winning documentarian Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), discussing his career and thoughts on the art of filmmaking. In addition, we consider two different approaches to the same topic, comparing Neville’s 2018 nonfiction Won’t You Be My Neighbor? to Marielle Heller’s 2019 fictional A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, each of which take the late, great Fred Rogers as their subject. Listen in for a vibrant conversation on documentaries and more! As always, you can find the audio of the episode on our “episodes” page, on Apple Podcasts and other sites.
