Thoughts from your host…


Wanna hear something funny? In the past, my podcasts dedicated to Hot Docs have been very much mapped out, and overall very specific. This year, I thought I’d keep it a bit more informal and by the seat of my pants. The result? Nada, zip, zilch. No audio dispatches from Hot Docs 2015.

So for starters, lesson-learned when it comes to podcasts from Hot Docs next year, and apologies for the unexpected lapse in programming.

But we’re back, and ready for a busy summer. We get it going with a film I was looking most forward to, and use it to initiate a whole new feature on the show! As if that isn’t enough reason to plug the mic back in, I found myself raising a glass with¬†a very good friend on to the show.

Welcome back to wherever you are…
