MomPod (feat. Nancy Ballard & Kathleen Solem)
In the spirit of this past weekend, Noah and Chance called their moms to discuss a favorite film from each. We begin from a dining room in Lawrenceville, New Jersey with a discussion of 1985’s “Out of Africa,” a sweeping romance about a Danish baroness (Meryl Streep) making her life in Kenya. At 27:50, they transition to 2001’s “The Royal Tenenbaums,” a movie the Solem-Pfeifer house bonded over for its lying, lovable patriarch and visual detail. Thanks for listening. And thanks for showing us movies, Moms.
our favorite movies
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.
