I'm a weird person. It's okay, I know I am. In addition to many odd things I do, I consistently choose documentaries over reality TV, nonfiction over fiction. My beach read right now is This Changes Everything, a 576-page tome on the connection between capitalism and climate change. Some people find my weirdness interesting (or at least amusing). I mostly don't worry too much what other people think because my mind is already at capacity computing my own incessant thoughts. I think waaaay to much about everything. It drives people close to me crazy and although I try to control this tendency, it is very much my default. One activity that feeds my thoughts is documentaries. I especially love social justice documentaries, of which there are many.
There are so many now that, if you're like me, can fill your Netflix queue to the point where you probably don't have enough time left in your life to watch them all. That's probably an exaggeration, but I've watched plenty and can't wait to nerd out on more. I want to share my favorites from the past couple of years with you. Information really can be life-altering, so be cautious about the rate at which you view them lest you fall into a pit of despair from which no amount of The Bachelor can revive you. These are the documentaries that have changed my actions, my diet, my life.
