Podium Web Series on Rhetoric and Debate

On campus early today to participate in filming a new web series about public speaking, debate, and political discourse. I am even wearing a jacket, which lets you know how important today is.

The series is called Podium, and it's produced by Radical Media. They are creating a new and contemporary series about political speech.

Today I am to be interviewed about debating, presidential debate, and rhetoric. I wonder what they will ask me. I'm interested to talk about our activities in competitive debating, but I wonder who would be interested in that outside of the usual monastic audience?

I see this as a challenge to connect my feelings and thoughts on presidential debating to how and what I hope I am teaching when I teach competitive debating. I hope I can figure out some interesting strategies.

I will post the final video in two weeks once the editing and post-production is complete.
