Do You Believe In Winter Olympic Miracles?! Affirmative.
Let the flags wave, the trumpets sound, and the Pink Eye medication take effect quickly! Chance and Noah are here to represent their podcast at the Winter Olympics of movies past. After some initial thoughts on the 2018 games, your hosts get into Miracle (2004), Cool Runnings (1993), and Eddie The Eagle (2016). They’re all movies inspired by true underdog stories with the sap, grandstanding, and training montages you’d expect when it’s … [pauses for effect] … inside what counts. From hockey to bobsledding to ski jumping, we break down all the sports movie cliches and discuss how you can still make an enjoyable film out of an inspirational formula and some weird, weird sports.

Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
