It will introduce the iconic brand - and its engaging debates about significant issues of our time. Audiences will hear strong and passionate arguments from both sides of an issue so they will have enough information to make up their own minds about where they stand.

Bring back the debates

This used to be a great podcast. The decision to switch to dialogues was poor at best.

The quality and success of the Munk Debates was based on featuring noteworthy speakers who challenge one another thoughtfully and civilly. That quality is now gone.

Lets hope the decision to switch from debate to opinion pieces is short lived.

Keep it coming

Simply the best podcast out there. I’m especially enjoying the dialogues. The perspectives and depth and breadth of insight is a refreshing break from the partisan mainstream media. Rudyard is the perfect host. Thank you, thank you!

Debates & Dialogues Equally Excellent

I began with the Munk debates and am thoroughly enjoying the dialogues. Interesting and knowledgeable speakers with diverse perspectives. Questions from listeners address issues many of us are thinking about.
