Beth Mendenhall discusses what it took for her and her partner, Derek Ziegler, to win the 2011 CEDA National Championship, being a woman in debate and her thoughts on the visas topic.

Joe Koehle, formerly of WGLF fame, coached Kansas State over the past couple of years. He discusses what it took from the debaters and coaches to make K State a championship level program, the Chicago Bulls, and his thoughts on the visas topic.

Featuring Will Sears (2010 NDT Semifinalist from Wake) and Beth Mendenhall (outstanding senior from Kansas State) on the affirmative, against Eric Lanning (2010 NDT Champion) and Leah Moczulski (amazing 2N from Gonzaga) on the negative. Brian Rubaie (2010 NDT first round recipient and dominant 2A from UTD) moderates this debate. Sam Mauer (Director at Emporia State), Scott Odekirk (Coach at Idaho State), and the student vote make up the three ballots that will decide this debate on a 3-0 for the affirmative, but you can make your own choice.
