I listened to this so long ago and kept it in my email cuz i swore i didn't finish it because it didn't seem temporally satisfying, and yet now i realize it was half as long as normal so i did finish it and now am hungry for the remaining 5 courses.

Hey Craig! Hope you're well. I agree with the degradation of documentaries.

One of the things that frustrates me is that most aren't even documentaries. It's an argument towards their view. There used to be standards where you have to present multiple views and why two contradictory views might be equally as valid.

I wish they named those a different genre. Like a Docu-thesis or something so it's clear they are presenting a single argument.
