Episode #02: History of the film (Part 1)

In the second episode of the Inside the Journey podcast John & Nelson talk about the film and what has happened over the past three years.

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 person highlights.

Originally this was going to be one episode but we decided to break it up. In part 1 we talk cover our Kickstarter project and trip to El Salvador.

About the podcast

Our goal with the podcast is to give you a look at what is going on behind the scenes with the film and to explore this very complicated issue.

Since we are just starting it the Podcast is not available on iTunes what we will be adding it shortly. New episodes will come out every Sunday, so make sure follow along.
