The New Chitlin Circuit is the only podcast dedicated solely to highlighting Black, independent film. Every Monday, Syd and Lex review a Black indie, low-budget, or direct-to-tv movie. Some weeks the hosts dig into an edgy Hood-drama on Tubi. Other weeks, Syd and Lex dive into meditative, arthouse films. But every week, it's Black Indies Only.
