Should there be "Kritiks" in BP Debate: The Rise of Metadebating with Dr. Justin Eckstein

We discuss the recent rise of teams refusing to debate their assigned side in a BP debate because they are personally opposed to the position they draw on the topic. 

Is this good for BP debate? Is it bad?

Is this something that should be permitted?

Our guest is legendary food rhetorician and rhetoric superstar Dr. Justin Eckstein of Pacific Lutheran University.
