Show Notes

In part one of our 2020 Trial by Combat preview series, Ben and Drew are joined by two 2020 TBC competitors: Regina Campbell of Chicago and Sonali Mehta of Duke. Regina was accompanied by witness Peter Bound, and they discussed Chicago's mock trial program, the disappointment of not finishing the season in their hometown, and how Regina is going to approach preparing for Trial by Combat virtually after competing in person last year. After that, Sonali spoke to Ben and Drew about her preparation process, getting stabbed by a demonstrative bag at an invitational, and how she's going to work with her coach and second chair at TBC.
