On episode 160 host Paco Romane and George Chen talk with one of their favorite filmmakers Jeff Feuerzeig. Jeff’s filmography speaks for itself but some of our favorite documentaries that we also discuss with Jeff are: The Devil and Daniel Johnston, Author The JT Leroy Story and Half Japanese: The Band That Would Be King.
On episode 147 hosts Paco and George take a look back at Michael Moore’s classic 1989 documentary Roger and Me. Foundational to modern American documentary, this is a biting, vital, and angry film that is sadly still relevant today.
Sup Doc RETURNS to SF Sketchfest! With hosts Paco Romane and George Chen for a special FREE event with panelist Cory Sklar (Illogical Contraption), Emily Van Dyke, and Frankie G (Killing My Lobster, Narcissists Anonymous) and Melissa McQueen (The World Famous Comedy Store, Hollywood Improv Comedy Club)
Last year’s Sketchfest show was awesome and we’re back for more! We screened the cult “found footage” short Memorial Day 2000 and then turned the mics on our panel to dissect, debate and discuss with hilarious results. Topics include our own youthful indiscretions, Juggalos, Springer, Faygo, Warped Tour, Northern Cities Vowel Shift, what constitutes a documentary, camping fails, and much more. We even get to hear Paco play piano.
On Episode 19 of Sup Doc Podcast Paco sits down with comedian/musician/Tony nominated actor Stephen Lynch and they have a lovely chat about the 2002 documentary The Smashing Machine: The Life and Times of Extreme Fighter Mark Kerr.
