The Story

My Doc Journey is a podcast about how to create a feature-length documentary. It is hosted by producer/director Maureen Lee Maloney, and follows the progress of the film Voice of Vanilla, as well as explaining how to become a documentary filmmaker.

Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you listen.

Voice of Vanilla is a feature-length observational documentary following a young mother in Madagascar as she and her family strives to build a better life through vanilla farming. We come to discover that the cultivation of vanilla is an extremely difficult, and often dangerous task. As we witness her journey, we will share in her triumphs and heartbreaks. In the end, we will have formed a connection with, and understanding of people very different from us, and yet so much the same.
