The Last Black Man In San Francisco (feat. Jimmie Fails)
This week, we unpack “The Last Black Man In San Francisco” for what it can tell us about the individual’s relationship to an idea as slippery as gentrification. What’s more, co-writer and star of the Sundance award-winning indie Jimmie Fails joins the program to discuss skateboard wipeouts, how to develop physical chemistry, and why he feels the need to move on from the story at the heart of his new movie.

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.
