I just started a new podcast with two other people, Summre Garber and Bart Weiss (read our biographies for more info), entitled The Fog of Truth, devoted to documentary films. Our first episode went live on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. Today, our third episode went up on the site. In it, we look at the rise of drone usage in documentaries and have an in-depth discussion of Strad Style, a film about a charming rural eccentric who makes replicas of historical violins. We also have an interview with Luke Korem, director of Dealt. Our first season will contain a total of 6 episodes (one a week), after which we will take a break until March, 2018, when we will kick off season 2 with a live event recorded at the SXSW Festival, in Austin, TX. Stay tuned, and be sure to listen to the episodes as they drop (there are instructions on our site about how to subscribe on iTunes, SoundCloud and Stitcher).
