Episode 90: Sports Documentaries & Nostalgia with Dr. Branden Buehler

This week Jonathan sits down with Seton Hall’s Dr. Branden Buehler to discuss the recent spate of sports documentaries and where these films intersect and engage with nostalgia. We make connections back to my discussion with Travis Vogan and talk through the wider definition of the term “documentary” that many may not be familiar with.
