Engaging, invigorating and enjoyable

I really enjoyed listening to this interesting and engaging first episode of Debated. I hope you guys make more because it is really different to any other political podcast I've ever listened to!

When do they Debate?

This is like listening to an political science undergrad reading their papers aloud. There is no debate, and it is over-structured. It’s a shame.
