About Us

Welcome to The Reel Debaters Podcast, where cinema and conversation collide! Join us as we dive into the world of movies, TV shows, and entertainment, dissecting the latest releases, timeless classics, and everything in between.

Each week a cast of film obsessed nerds with selected colleagues and friends sit down and use one of our many patented formats to compare, contrast and insult each other for your cinematic amusements with situational debates created from their favourite 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.

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 motion pictures and Special Features, where Micheal sits down with industry experts, filmmakers, actors, and creative minds to bring you behind-the-scenes insights and exclusive interviews.

From exploring the art of storytelling to delving into the intricacies of production, Micheal goes beyond the surface to uncover the magic that happens both on and off the screen.

Welcome to Where The Art Of Cinema Meets The Power Of Debate.

New episode every Thursday.
