Eric is from Wichita, but just barely. She has traveled the world and says she isn't stopping any time soon. We got to talk to her about what life is like when you don't always plan ahead, and you always say yes to an adventure. The places she's been, the friends she's made, and how she keeps up with people from back home. Listen to the wisdom of a woman that knows the whole planet is her home.

We get the chance to talk to the subject of the documentary "Double Digits". This guy rocks!
DOUBLE DIGITS introduces us to Richard 'R.G.' Miller, a tenacious low-budget filmmaker and unlikely YouTuber as he prepares for his latest epic film, "The Masked Man." This documentary follows his unconventional process and delves into over 35 years of his personal and professional backstory: utilizing footage from Richard's own archives dating back to 1979, DOUBLE DIGITS lovingly pieces together the story of one man's dream as it is born, cultivated, stuffed away, shattered, and triumphantly revived.
