“There’s a reason why I talk to other people for a living...” — Louis Theroux, documentary filmmaker

The Gentleman's Journal Podcast

Louis Theroux is a documentary filmmaker, journalist, broadcaster, national treasure, and latterly podcast host. Louis joined us on the podcast to talk about the release of his brilliant new documentary Shooting Joe Exotic, in which he revisits the star of last year's Tiger King documentary — but the conversation soon became about so much more: the state of America right now; the trouble with social media; the poignancy of shooting horses; the perils of podcast coziness — and the very art of interviewing itself.  Louis Theroux: Shooting Joe Exotic is now available on BBC iPlayer
