Possibly Pretentious but Insightfully Important

It could be the accidents, I’m American, but you can’t help feel that these people are part of an exclusive club/career. They talk about interesting and important subjects, the editing is well done, and things like honesty and integrity are here. However, based off of the people they choose to interview... (it has to do with the club/career I talked about) I don’t see them expanding very far. The podcast itself feels like from an institution. I found this podcast through an instagram ad and it would be interesting to hear about the views from Instagram photographers like me who aren't able to build a following, and what that does to the new generations and the art form. I don’t think photographers these days are getting to where the people in this podcast are. We resort to reviving film and making youtube the priority for profit than being able to be part of the elite club or enacting meaningful change.
