Reel Talk: A Movie Podcast

Your go-to source for ratings and recommendations of past and present films. We'll help you decide whether you should see a movie in theaters, catch it on rental or streaming service, or avoid it. We plan to bring you bi-weekly shows in a variety of different formats. We'll dive into different films and review them for what they are, not what mainstream critics think they should be based on the current political or social climates.
