Benjamin Fingerhut, director and producer of the documentary Breaking and Entering, is our guest this week and I must confess, this episode will certainly make my top 10 list for the year.
As is often the case with all of our episodes, the time passes to quickly and I find myself having to wrap up a conversation that could have gone on for hours. I received a preview of his documentary a few weeks back and was glued to the screen by the stories Benjamin captured in his film.
I know you’ll enjoy eavesdropping on our conversation.
Note: Benjamin is all about getting the story and managed to turn the tables on me – for one brief moment, he became the interviewer!
About Breaking and Entering
Breaking world records is a mysteriously seductive tradition, alternately inspiring, reckless, and bizarre.
Follow a joggler, a grape catcher, and a man who cycles nowhere as they battle the odds – and their respective nemeses – in pursuit of global dominance. Since when is it trivial to dream?
