Welcome to The Reel Debaters, where the art of film meets the power of debate.

Each week you’ll hear 4 debaters sit down and use one of their many formats where they compare, contrast and insult each other with their takes on that weeks argument. 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.
