Great Show

Great discussions on films that convey and promote diversity in cinema. I also like that they show love to short films at the beginning of each episode.

Insightful discussions!

Great podcast with insights of POC in film. Courtney and Andrew select films with interesting themes and have great discussions. Well worth subscribing to!

Excellent show!

A wonderful conceit expertly executed, Changing Reels brings some underappreciated gems to the foreground. Courtney and Andrew do a wonderful job showcasing diversity in front of and behind the camera, an area we should all be working hard to focus on. Well worth a listen! And a wonderful addition to the Modern Superior podcast network!
