Introducing Pushkin's newest show, Some of My Best Friends Are...hosted by Khalil Muhammad and Ben Austen, two best friends who grew up together on the South Side of Chicago in '80s. Khalil and Ben invite listeners into their conversations about the absurdities and intricacies of race in America. Mixing anecdotes, entertaining storytelling, and thoughtful debate, Some of My Best Friends Are... helps listeners make sense of a deeply divided country.

In this episode, Khalil and Ben look back at two classic Interracial Buddy Films: 48 Hours and Lethal Weapon. They ask: How did these films and others like them shape a generation of moviegoers' views on racism and law enforcement? What did they say about being white and Black men of the time?
