Dedicated to the conversation around its craft and lifestyle, The Documentary Life podcast has become the highest-ranked podcast specifically on documentary filmmaking. The inspiring and informative show has now announced its partnership with another pillar of the documentary industry, online community D-Word.
The D-Word boasts some 20000 members, becoming the #1 online community of documentary professionals. Its creative, technical, social, and financial topics of conversation have served the documentary community across its 20-year span. Founder Doug Block says of the partnership: «…what drew us to The Documentary Life podcast is, while it consistently features doc filmmakers and industry figures, each episode is focused on an important documentary theme rather than promoting a specific film.»
As part of the partnership, The Documentary Life podcast will broaden its reach and facilitate in-depth discussions on one of the D-Word’s Topic Forums. This comes as the podcast founded and hosted by filmmaker Chris G. Parkhurst has already garnered over 160k downloads across 145 countries, while featuring renowned guests like Steve James, Bing Liu, Steven Bognar, and Waad Al-Kateab & Edward Watts.
