Could James Bond be a Chef? Should The Ghostbusters have their own restaurant? What would Indiana Jones and Laura Crofts wedding look like? Maybe you wanna find out if Conan The Barbarian could teach Sex Ed? We have the answers if you're curious... Welcome to The Reel Debaters, where real life meets reel life Micheal Petrow and Martin Navarro with their best good friends have gone too many sleepless nights while these and more questions like them continue to go unanswered. Each week you’ll hear 4 cast members sit down, come up with a new tussle and compare, contrast and insult each other with our takes for your listening pleasure. We’ll insert ourselves into the movie or tv show and see how we fare or bring the characters into real life scenarios and see if our bull S*&t holds water AND as a bonus give you access and interviews in the Canadian film industry via their home province of Manitoba, Canada. Wanna know who you’re listening to and their wheelhouse? Micheal Petrow: 90's/Early 2000's ..actually just everything.
