Show Notes

For this episode, Ben and Drew try something different. Nat Warner of Wesleyan joined the show for a roundtable discussion on a wide variety of topics, including the possibility of finishing the 2020 season online, the new ORCS pairing system and how Nat and Ben experienced it during ORCS this year, whether AMTA should add a tournament for teams who narrowly miss NCT, what areas AMTA does well and where they can improve, and whether mimicry is a problem in Mock Trial. (Editor's note: Ben's audio is lower quality than usual for this episode due to an error while recording.)
