The Documentary Blog Podcast Episode #7: (Guest: Julien Nitzberg, Director of The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia)

After a short hiatus, The Documentary Blog Podcast is back home for the holidays. In this episode, hosts Jay Cheel and Joshua Ligairi are joined by Julien Nitzberg, fearless director of The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. Executive Produced by Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville, Nitzberg’s film lives up to the Jackasses’ shocking reputations. Recent projects and documentary recommendations are briefly discussed before barreling head-on into into hilarious and cringe-inducing tales from the making of Nitberg’s film. As Ligairi describes them, The White Family is like “a nightmare version of the Dukes of Hazzard” and their story is sure to make you thankful for your own family–perfect timing for the holiday season!
