Based in the heartbeat of Canada (Winnipeg, Manitoba) with a booming film industry, The Reel Debaters Podcast is a motley crew of film-obsessed nerds and selected colleagues that sit down each episode and use one of their many patented formats to compare, contrast, and insult each other for your cinematic amusements with situational debates created from their favorite films and shows

Example:
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?

You get the picture.

At The Reel Debaters, we have all your film needs covered, arguing the best releases big and small, and reassessing great films of the past. In between debates, you can also listen to The Reel Talk Sessions where we trade stories, behind-the-scenes knowledge, and thoughts on the world of pop culture AND our bonus content with Special Features, our industry interview series
