Director and documentarian Simon Ennis (Lunacry!, You Might As Well Live) makes his long overdue return to the show to nosedive into the world of capital punishment, holocaust denial, and coffee with Errol Morris' critically lauded documentary MR DEATH.

We discuss whether or not it is a filmmaker's responsibility to educate their audience, our thoughts on capital punishment, and go in depth into the bizarre character that is Fred A. Leuthcer, Jr. We also break down some of the unique filmmaking techniques and technology used in the making of this doc.

Simon Ennis is the director of the features "Lunarcy!" and "You Might As Well Live" as well as various television projects. His latest effort "When Country goes Pop", a documentary in Netflix's upcoming music series "This Is Pop", premieres June 22nd.
