The DOXA Community Recommends

The DOXA Community Recommends

Last week, we asked the DOXA community (that's you!) which documentary films and non-fiction podcasts are worth the watch/listen. Have you been binge-listening to a podcast that you think other folks would love, too? Or maybe you've watched Grey Gardens for the sixth time, hoping to pick up some self-isolation tips from Big and Little Edie? We wanted to know! And we've compiled those titles here, for you to check out. Thanks to those who participated—there's nothing like a trusted recommendation from a friend!
