Episode #03: Where we are with the film? (Part 2)

ITJ Episode 03

In the third episode of the Inside the Journey podcast, John & Nelson continue their discussion about the history of their film.

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.

Initially, this was going to be one episode, but we decided to break it up. In part 2, we cover Nelson's trip back to LA and our talk at the U. Chicago Robert Kirschner Memorial lecture.
