In this episode I’m joined by Kevin Hirn and the notorious DML who are both debate coaches at the University of Michigan. We tackle a lot of backfile questions regarding framework vs kritik args on both the aff and neg.
We start off with Dustin talking about T/FW on the neg including
-how to construct a 1NC-what should go in there? How much evidence should you read?
-how do you explain your impacts and frame the round?
-how to respond to some common aff objections
Then Kevin talks about how to defend your aff vs neg K tricks that attempt to “moot” parts of your 1AC/rig impact comparison. We cover
-why/when you actually need a FW argument
-how to explain why self-serving FW/ROB are bad
-how to allocate time/prioritize arguments in rebuttals
Dustin was kind enough to put together a few docs with evidence that is better than what HS students are reading in 99% of debates o make sure you check them out.
