Remembering John Singleton (feat. Tochi Onyebuchi)
With the untimely passing of writer/director/producer John Singleton last month, Be Reel takes stock of his life, times and film career. From the seminal “Boyz n the Hood” to the endlessly meme-able “Poetic Justice” to the unsung epic “Rosewood,” Chance, Noah, and author Tochi Onyebuchi reflect on Singleton’s role as a preeminent black filmmaker and all the beauty and ugliness wrapped up in his both timely and timeless portraits of America.
Be Reel is brought to you by the good folks at California College of the Arts’ Writing MFA Program. Learn more about CCA.edu/writingmfa. Then, listen to Tochi’s podcast here and buy his novels here.

Movie Reviews & Reappraisals
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.
