I Am Human. This Is My Dog.

I Am Human. This Is My Dog.

The podcast devoted to putting the individual back into the dog, as well as their human.

The Prelude | Season 1, Episode 1

In this first episode – titled “The Prelude“, of this inaugural season of the “I Am Human. This Is My Dog.” podcast, we focus on the Michael Vick dogfighting case from spring of 2007, when federal authorities raided his Virginia property on April 25th on the initial premise for a drug bust, but while conducting their search they discover dozens of pit bull dogs and dogfighting paraphernalia.

I recount my time as an aspiring filmmaker, who began production on a documentary film examining dogfighting – started the day the former NFL star quarterback was suspected of running a dogfighting operation.

I discuss what I did as a new filmmaker attempting to learn the craft while also covering the plight of pit bull dogs, which led to meeting and falling madly in love with a dog named Preston one year later, and my subsequent introduction into laws called breed specific legislation (BSL).
