One of the filmmakers and a lead subject from The American Legion Texas Boys State documentary share their experiences in this week’s Tango Alpha Lima podcast.
Jesse Moss was one of the producers of the film, which won the Grand Jury Prize at January’s Sundance Film Festival, and is now available for viewing on Apple TV+. It was filmed during the 2018 Texas Boys State session.
The documentary follows four “statesmen” — including Steven Garza who also appears on the Tango Alpha Lima podcast — through their week-long experience learning about state government.
Host Mark Seavey, who has volunteered during numerous Boys States as a counselor, leads the conversation about how the documentary came together, Garza’s experience in front of the camera and how the overall week influenced him.
Co-hosts Jeff Daly and Ashley Gorbulja-Maldonado also add to the conversation in this informative podcast highlighting one of The American Legion’s longest-running and most prestigious programs. Its alumni include former President Bill Clinton, former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Indiana governor and current Purdue University President Mitch Daniels, basketball legend Michael Jordan and countless other successful Americans.
