Martin Thomas

Film Critic/Co-Host
Double Toasted

Martin Thomas is part of the old guard beginning his career as a film critic in 1996 on the Austin airwaves with the weekly TV show ‘The Reel Deal’. After a brief stint as a co-host on the WB’s weekly show ‘Behind the Screens’, Martin (along with the rest of the Reel Deal crew) took to the internet in 2004 where he continued as the cartoon character “Leon” for Spill.com. After Spill.com ended its run in 2013 Korey Coleman and Martin Thomas went on to form a new movie/entertainment entity, DoubleToasted.com, which won the Austin Chronicle's "Best of Austin" Award for Best Podcast of 2015 and 2017.
