By Gabriela Vatu / June 2, 2020

The Netflix series Tiger King has swept the world and made documentaries interesting again. There are so many unanswered questions about Joe Exotic and the whole crew around him, so Investigation Discovery has set up a new documentary called The Truth Behind Joe Exotic: The Rick Kirkham Story. We want to watch it online, so let's go figure out how to do that.

This Investigation Discovery documentary will give us a new angle in which to watch the Tiger King documentary. In this special, Rick Kirkham will give his last interview about Joe Exotic and his time spent at his zoo.

Kirkham - if you'll remember - is the man hired by Joe Exotic to create a documentary about him. He was extremely happy about the trove of information and characters he found at Joe Exotic Zoo, which is pretty much why he stuck around. The whole adventure featured his studio burning up, his home in the United States going up in flames too, and he received various other threats to his life, which led him to flee the country and retreat to a small village in Norway.

How Can I Watch The Truth Behind Joe Exotic: The Rick Kirkham Story When Traveling Outside of the United States?

One of the things that annoy people the most when they travel is that the live TV platforms and services they are used to watching at home are no longer accessible. This happens because live TV platforms and streaming services have to respect certain licensing deals, which clearly state they can only stream content within the United States. To circumvent this situation, you need to change your IP address with a VPN so that it appears to come from the United States. We recommend using ExpressVPN because it's such a great tool, featuring thousands of servers all over the world.

Here is how you can use ExpressVPN to watch The Truth Behind Joe Exotic: The Rick Kirkham Story:
