About This Show
Welcome to Changing Reels! A bi-weekly podcast that celebrates diversity in front of and behind the camera by revisiting overlooked films and exploring their pop culture significance. In each episode, hosts Andrew Hathaway and Courtney Small dissect a feature film that they feel deserves more love, as well as highlight two short films that relate to the main film in some fashion (or so they hope).

Episode 12 - A Huey P. Newton Story
Spike Lee has been one of the most prolific directors ever since he burst onto the scene with 1986 She’s Gotta Have It. Effortlessly moving from features to shorts to documentaries to television, there is little he cannot do. However, many still question whether or not Lee deserves to be on the top ten list of greatest directors. We discuss this and more while exploring his 2001 film A Huey P. Newton Story, a performance film that is adapted from star Roger Guenveur Smith’s one man show about the Black Panther co-founder. We also take a moment to discuss our short film picks of the week: TV on the Radio’s Nine Types of Light and Randy Yang’s Video.
