Each year, RadioWest sits down for in-depth conversations with filmmakers and producers during the Sundance Film Festival. Just like the festival, the RadioWest team has eclectic taste. We hope you enjoy the diversity of topics as much as we do.

Who doesn’t remember Mr. Rogers and trips to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe? In a new documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, director Morgan Neville explores the life and philosophy of the television icon. It was Fred Rogers’ wife Joanne who told Neville not to make Fred out to be a saint in the film because he wasn’t. But he was a person who respected children and built a career with love “at the root of everything.” Morgan Neville joins us to talk about Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
