This week on The Reel Debaters Micheal sits down with SFX master Marc Reichel to find out where he found out how to blow stuff up, working on Montreal to start his career, moving to manitoba to keep it going, films like Source Code (2011), Chucky, Arrival(2016), Nobody(2021) and his most recent work on Violent Night(2022) starring David Harbour and John Leguizamo.

Marc is one of the nicest humans to ever walk the earth and flip cars snowmobiles for a living. Thank you for your time sir. We're better fans for it.

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.

Wanna know who you’re listening to?
