Well, we’ve made it to forty. The spirit of Herzog is keeping us going and we honor Werner Herzog by devoting the month of September to his documentaries. Bob and Drew discuss a sports themed Herzog doc that was a big turning point in the director’s career. Walter Steiner is a moody young ski-flying phenom that can bust ramp records on the reg. He also carves wood. A serene film set to some Popol Vuh krautrock. And crashes. Lots and lots of ski-jump crashes. Also, is Werner wearing a Dallas Cowboys jacket? This is available on YouTube and if you’re like us you will need to turn on the subtitles. If you don’t, then good for you Mr./Ms. smartypants. Keep on Doccin’®
