In this episode I’m joined by John Turner, Director of debate at Dartmouth College, and Brian “Carter Burke” Klarman and James Herndon who’s couples name is either Klerndon or Hernman (vote in comments) who coach debate at Emory University.
We start off talking about different strategies for what a 1NC should be like. We talk about circumvention and theory arguments related to specifying your agent or adding shenanigan planks to your parole CP. Klerndon go on an extended rant about the beauty of word pics. This leads to a discussion of alternatives to the offense/defense paradigm for decision making. We close with a discussion of what your go to strategy is for cutting a neg to a new aff under time constraints.
