Filmmaker Joseph Ryan Martinez joins Mark Carman and Andy Masur in-studio to talk about a documentary he’s working on called Bear Down: The Film,  which attempts to tell the various stories of die-hard Bears fans, and the stronger family roots that lie at the base of fandom.  He talks about the ten-plus year journey interviewing Bears fans, his own experience bonding over the Bears with his father, the process of selecting fans to feature in the doc, and more.
