Scott Lacy is a long-standing fan of the documentary genre and a documentary filmmaker as well. He has a background in technology, photograpy and video production. He's currently working on a film about the “last great newspaper war” in Anchorage, Alaska.

Lacy, a native of Richmond, Va., began his career as a newspaper reporter in Anchorage. A nomad in his earlier years, Lacy has worked and lived in all five continental U.S. time zones.

Lacy began podcasting in late 2020 and currently produces the Talking Documentary podcast every 3-4 weeks. He lives with his trusty mutt, Ollie, in downtown Durham, NC, a mere 10-minute walk from the site of the world-famous Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.
