X93: How Debate Teaches Us to Listen and Be Heard with Bo Seo

By August 5, 2022February 3rd, 2023No Comments

Do you shy away from arguments because it’s just not worth it? Or do you run toward them, get nowhere and then feel like crap wishing you hadn’t?

What I’ve found is that so many topics have so much emotion behind them, or dare I say programming, that both sides become blinded by their talking points and have stopped being able to see outside of them.

So how do we get to a place where we respectfully converse? A place where we can come together and shave off the extremities in both of our views and meet somewhere in the middle?

That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Bo Seo. He is a two-time world champion debater and a former coach of the Australian national debating team and the Harvard College Debating Union. He is one of the most recognized figures in the global debate community and is now the author of Good Arguments: How Debate Teaches Us to Listen and Be Heard.
