Episode #02: Where we are with the film? (Part 1)

ITJ Episode 02

In the second episode of the Inside the Journey podcast John & Nelson talk about the film's progress over the past three years and their personal highlights.

A lot has happened since the start of this project in 2010. We realize that many people are unaware of the developments with the film. So, we recorded this episode to share our progress and personal highlights.

Originally, this was going to be one episode but we decided to break it up. In part 1 we talk cover our Kickstarter project and trip to El Salvador.
