I am hosting another debate site for the Gonzaga Debate Institute this summer, MyGDI.net, that should have some great content on it. Tonight I posted a podcast that featured deb(k)ate author Izak Dunn. Those of you interested in running Ks on the High School Space Topic should probably check it out.

Special thanks to the Gonzaga Debate Institute for allowing us to post this video. Adam Symonds is a professor at Arizona State University, where he is the director of forensics, and he is also a former CEDA Nationals champion and first round debater for Whitman. Adam is also the longest tenured faculty member at the GDI. This lecture is in the context of this year’s high school topic. Adam is also one of my favorite judges.

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.
