[7 mins. 30 secs.] Documentary filmmaker and their subjects occupy this SxSW 2018 Edition of the podcast. First up, is filmmaker Robert Bader and one of the subjects of his new documentary, Ali & Cavett: The Tale of the Tapes, which premiered at SxSW. We sit with Bader and, returning to the podcast, none other than Dick Cavett (he was last on Episode 252). In this conversation, as shown in great detail in the documentary, Cavett and Bader recall the story of the great friendship between the Nebraska-born talk show host and world champion boxer.
[37 mins. 20 secs.] Then returning to the podcast for his 4th visit, filmmaker Jeremy Workman is back (Workman as appeared on Episodes 250, 379 & 467) with a new film and the film’s main subject, Matt Green. The World Before Your Feet had its world premiere at SxSW and we talked in Austin. For over six years, and for reasons he can’t explain, Matt Green, 37, has been walking every block of every street in New York City – a journey of more than 8,000 miles. From filmmaker Jeremy Workman and Executive Producer Jesse Eisenberg, The World Before Your Feet is a feature-length documentary that tells the story of one man’s unusual personal quest and the unexpected journey of discovery, humanity, and wonder that ensues. Check Matt Green’s remarkable blog which not only captures his journey but also gives much sociological perspective to this great city.
