The Documentary Show is a podcast hosted by John Oldfield and Keith Bodayla. They discuss their favorite documentaries they’ve been watching, old ones you might have missed, and the world of documentary filmmaking.
Episode 32: WordPlay and Jiu Jitsu Vs The World
John and Keith are finally back with the first of all new episodes! One of us made a big mistake, but don't worry we make the most of it. After a trip down the rabbit hole of YouTube Music Videos, we talk about Patrick Creadon's Wordplay about Will Shortz and the New York Times Crossword Puzzle. Then, we talk about Dan Lewis's Jiu Jitsu vs The World about Jiu Jitsu of all things.
Episode 31: AlphaGo and Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead
John takes us into the realm of AI with Greg Kohs's AlphaGo about the computer program, AlphaGo as it learns to play the game Go against the top human competitor, Lee Sedol. Then Keith takes us down a different road as we learn about the history of National Lampoon with Douglas Tirola's Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead. They also take some side trips. Okay, many side trips.
Episode 30: American Anarchist and Longshot
Keith and John discuss the ideas of remorse and guilt with Charlie Siskel's American Anarchist about William Powell who wrote The Anarchist Cookbook. Then they cover a smaller documentary about how Larry David once saved a guy from being charged with murder with Jacob LaMendola's Netflix original, Longshot.
Episode 29: Betting on Zero and Queen of Versailles
John tries to explain short selling stocks and Keith doesn't get it as they discuss Ted Braun's Betting on Zero about the scam that is Herbalife. Keith gets mad a millionaires as they discuss Lauren Greenfield's Queen of Versailles about the biggest house in America and the economic collapse.
Episode 28: A State of the Union
John and Keith share what they’ve been up to and what caused the long delay between episodes. They discuss a little bit of current events and Keith explains the Bill Cosby Rule.
Episode 27: Becoming Bond and Ballet 422
It’s an episode we forgot to post. Keith brings us the first documentary containing a viewer warning with Josh Greenbaum’s Becoming Bond. The story of George Lazenby and how he became the one-time James Bond. John then admits he picked the wrong documentary with Jody Lee Lipes, Ballet 422. The story of a kid putting together an important ballet, we think.
Dude people in Africa run down their pray until it lays down and they can kill it with their hands, or the tools they were able to make because we evolved and are able to. Apes and monkeys use tools too. Our closest relatives eat meat. We are closer in makeup to carnivores. You drank the cool aid. This is why I despise this movie. The CONSPIRACY is against cows. Hello. Just because you feel incapable does not mean humans are incapable of killing living things. Fishing? Bugs? Catching a chicken or rabbit and snapping its neck? Yes we can do all these things. We cannot survive off plants alone globally or physically. You are a privileged person in a first world who can choose to avoid meat. You will never get people living off the land to make that change. There are many people and tribes who cannot choose to eat just plants.
Who makes money by everyone becoming Vegan? Ever think of that? Maybe the grain and corn industries that have made us obese and sick and lied to the entire country before in creating the food pyramid? Follow the money.
