David and Adam were very excited to have the opportunity to sit down with Director Evgeny Afineevsky, creator of the Academy Award nominated documentary, Winter On Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom chronicling the Euromaidan protests that changed a country forever.

Evgeny talks with us about his early aspirations growing up in the Soviet Union, his move to Israel and his work up until the day he received a call about a student protesting just beginning to form in Kiev, Ukraine.

Despite the difficult conditions, Evgeny explains how inspiring it was to be in the middle of such a historic moment and the incredible unity he felt with people from every class, race and religion who took the brave stand for freedom 2 years ago.

We were honored to have a chance to hear this story from someone who not only was there, but took the initiative to record the Euromaidan uprising for posterity.  Not only do we get to hear first-hand the story behind the incredible images we see in Winter On Fire, but also about some of the most memorable events that weren't able to make it into the film.

DavidAdam and Vincent Minnucci have a spirited discussion about the 10-part documentary series that has enthralled viewers worldwide, Making a Murderer.

Using over 700 hours of footage shot since 2005, creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos chronicle the story of Steve Avery, a Wisconsin man who, after serving 18 years for a crime he did not commit, is released based on new DNA evidence.  The story doesn’t end there however, as he is once again arrested, this time for the murder of Teresa Halbach.

It’s a story full of twists and turns, exploring if it’s possible for a man to be wrongly jailed twice in one lifetime for some of the most heinous crimes anyone can commit.
