About Us

Could James Bond be a Chef? Should The Ghostbusters have their own restaurant? What would Indiana Jones and Lara Croft's wedding look like? Maybe you wanna find out if Conan The Barbarian could teach Sex Ed?

Welcome to The Reel Debaters, where real life meets reel life...

Each week you’ll hear 4 debaters sit down as they come up with a new tussle where they compare, contrast and insult each other with their takes for your listening pleasure. They'll either insert themselves into a story and see how they fare or bring the characters into real life scenarios that make less than no sense.

As a bonus you'll get access from within the film industry and listen to "reel talks" about our favorite moments, scenes and stories.
