Finally a Real Debate

Intelligence Squared is a refreshing program from NPR that takes a critical look at today’s issues. The strength of the program is that conflict between the debating sides is well mediated and respectful. When I watch shows like Crossfire, I end up feeling like I’m watching little kids competing for whose voice is more alienating. With Intelligence Squared, I feel like I’m listening to a discussion between teachers whom I respect. I might not agree with them, but the conversation is worth listening to.

Unedited Audio

NPR- You should have a podcast of the FULL UNEDITED debate. I prefer quality over brevity. Maybe two podcasts? One edited, one unedited. -A KPCC Member

Mostly good

I love the premise of intellectual debate without yelling, crosstalk, emotion-only appeals and without thought. Mostly Intelligence Squared delivers just that. I enjoyed a number of episodes before listening to the one on Hamas. In this one I started out listening to NPR and midstream it turned into Fox News. Where was the moderator? Yelling, ad hominem attacks...and worse yet, because this is an edited shortened version of the original this means that NPR purposefully included the "Crossfire"-esque bits in the podcast. Shame on you NPR. If I wanted to hear yelling instead of debate I would turn on my TV.
