--- Where Reel Life Meets Real Life... ---

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 debaters sit down as they come up with a new tussle where we compare, contrast and insult each other with our takes for your listening pleasure. We’ll either insert ourselves into the movie or tv show and see how we fare or bring the characters into real life scenarios and see how they hold water and as a bonus give you access and interviews in the Canadian film industry via everyone from the lead actor to the account behind the scenes to pull back the curtain on how they make movies in the great white north. Wanna know who you’re listening to and their wheelhouses? Micheal Petrow: 90's/Early 2000's ..actually just everything. Martin Navarro: Sci fi/Fantasy Jimmy Skinner: Horror and B Movies Rob Strachan: Audio/Video and Classic Cinema Ian Bawa: Director/Actor and Independent Films Mark Cowell: Pop Culture and Popcorn Movies Charles Fernandes : Comic Book and Super Heroes Tune Wednesday for a new episode and if there’s something you wanna hear beaten to death send us an email
