About Is This Reel Life?

Is This Reel Life? is a podcast which examines the real world implications of a myriad of films; it is run by two outspoken, liberal, atheist ladies who have some serious opinions to share. 

Kristen is a talented videographer with a degree in film studies. Growing up in Louisiana as a trans woman was definitely not easy, but Kristen has allowed those experiences to formulate an excellent sense of humor and a brilliant perspective on the world around her.

Bethany has a degree in psychology and a background in film noir. A firebrand atheist and pansexual polyamorous woman from Kentucky, Bethany has a truly unique point of view. 

We watch movies of all genres and attempt to reconcile Hollywood with the real world.
