Welcome to Documentary Digest

Welcome Documetary Digesters!

An introduction is in order. I’m Adam, and I am a journalist who studies magazine journalism and sociology at the University of South Florida.  I love writing about social issues and music.

With this blog, I hope to bring a unique sociological perspective to the table. I’ll be analyzing, digesting, and aggregating documentaries on myriad subjects.

Whether you’re new to documentaries or watch them  almost exclusively, sometimes you get this hunger for something real, something informative. Not some cat hoarder show on TLC (by the way, that stands for The Learning Channel, surprisingly enough) or some TV news story that hardly even scratches the surface of an issue. You want something that reaches out and grabs you, and makes you question everything you thought you knew. In upcoming posts, I will discuss documentaries that I think will do just that.

And if you don’t already have a good source for documentaries, try these:

If you have a favorite site for documentaries that I didn’t post, feel free to put them in the comment section.
