    The Half Hour with YuYu Yuan and Spencer Travis: Ep. 40 - Iranian Protests

    The Half Hour is a current events podcast designed with the intention of helping Extemporaneous speaking competitors (and other Speech and Debate members, as well as listening for the general public) understand the importance of political, social, or economical events on a domestic and international scale.
    40 | Iranian Protests
    Citizens of Iran are pushing for change within the regime. The problem: There is a real uncertainty about whether the regime can change. Some speculate that the regime will win and things may stay the same. Others argue that theory is not applicable to practice. Yet, if things do not turn out well, Iran may be at the verge of a complete disaster. In this episode, YuYu and Spencer work through the current status of the Iranian protests.

Very informative for speakers!

Worth listening to for students and coaches alike

In One Clap, Coach Lyle Wiley is creating an invaluable resource for coaches, students, and anyone interested in the speech and debate community. Like a crackling fireplace, a warm mug of cocoa, and a blanket on a winter night, these interviews will invite you to sit, be comfy, and contemplate big questions and small with good company. And while my big brother, Lyle, might not remember that his little sisters were deeply entrenched in Speech and Debate in high school while he won basketball tournaments, I’m so glad he found Speech and Debate as an adult. I often find myself wishing I could transport his podcast back in time when I was figuring out CX debate in the late 90s. Way to go, bro! Keep it up because I’m looking forward to season two!
