Fantastic podcast

Vince and Len are great hosts! I love the ambition of this project, and I love the insightful, deep, and often hilarious discussions around classic films and deep cuts alike. If you’re looking for a place to start, I highly suggest the Body and Soul episode, which gives great insight into the story and history of the podcast’s namesake, the great Oscar Micheaux.

Fun podcast!

The Micheaux Mission has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts! I love Vince and Len's insights, jokes, stories, and camaraderie. I also really enjoy the lives on Facebook and YouTube and the community vibe engendered there. I look forward to it every Tuesday evening! I have it on my calendar and, usually, have my Fat Bastard (Hennessey and White Zinfandel) at the ready. 😄 It is just the kind of Covid era virtual party I need. They cover some movies I've seen, and some I've (sadly) never even heard of. I always come away with new appreciations, new takes, and new films to add to my watch list.

I Love This Podcast

I was looking for something to listen to and came across this podcast. I love movies and like following black movies. I thought this would be some guys who watched a couple of movies and give a half hearted review. I was surprised at the passion, insight and investigation given to the films they review. I am a fan now and can’t wait for the next podcast.
