World Schools Debate in South Africa with the Thethani Debate League - and a LIVE DEBATE!

For the first time ever we have a live debate on the show!

the Thethani Debating League  joins us for a special episode focusing exclusively on World Schools debating in South Africa!

Patricia Johnson-Castle, formerly of McGill University and Brynde Kreft, now both coaches and volunteers for the league discuss the power of debate to help underprivileged students in the context of South African culture. 

There is also a debate! The motion THBT South African universities should teach in all 11 official languages. Asisipho, Kamva, Nonstikelelo, and Siyanda who are students in the Thethani league give us a modified World Schools format debate to demonstrate their debate prowess live on the show!
