Deacs & Docs



The official Wake Forest University Documentary Film Program Podcast #WFUDFPPC.


  • S2E5 Dream Jobbers

    08/03/2019 Duration: 01h10min

    It's time to put Trey on the hot seat! Thomas takes off his producer hat and puts on the hosting fedora as he interviews Trey and his thesis partner, Oliver Rouch, about their thesis film "Dream Jobbers." The film follows male and female professional wrestlers as they navigate the independent circuit in North Carolina. Trey and Oliver talk about some of the unexpected challenges about filming a non social justice issue film, while also taking the time to flex their (very small) muscles about other films featuring professional wrestlers. Hosted by THIRD-year MFA students Trey Kalny and Thomas Espy (but sometimes only Thomas), "Deacs & Docs" is the official #WFUDFPPC.

  • S2E4 Special Guest Diane Hodson

    08/03/2019 Duration: 01h33min

    We have two very special guests in the studio for our fourth episode of Semester 2! Documentary Film Program Director Cara Pilson makes her debut alongside DFP alum, Diane Hodson. In addition to her award-winning thesis film, "unmappable," Diane has worked on several podcasts, including "Missing Richard Simmons." We chat with her about her work, while giving Cara a ripe opportunity to engage in one of her favorite conversations: ethics in non-fiction storytelling. Hosted by THIRD-year MFA students Trey Kalny and Thomas Espy, "Deacs & Docs" is the official #WFUDFPPC.
