Do you listen to public radio? We went to a conference of public radio execs, and we asked "Is Public Radio Still Relevant," with two superb debaters, @kmele and @ericnuzum. The #debate #podcast is now out. 🎧intelligencesquaredus.org/debate/is-publ…Wyoutube.com/watch?v=eDsk-k…4
So here I am in Twitter of all places posting about our just-dropped debate on disinformation. @IQ2US youtu.be/22DjdXvkfoY
Next week I'm hosting/taping an @IQ2US debate on the question: IS AFFIRMATIVE ACTION UNFAIR TO ASIAN AMERICANS. Moderating between @leechcheng and @johncyangdc. Timely in light of recent @Scotus headlines. Thoughts on questions for these two debaters? thecrimson.com/article/2022/1…

Foreign policy didn't happen to figure big in the election just now passed. But these issues have a way of sticking around. That's why our mix of @IQ2US debates always finds time to explore world affairs, and makes the choices easier to understand. Take a listen. twitter.com/IQ2US/status/1…
Election behind us now (sort of) it might be time to look afresh at some important issues, as in this debate we just released: should police lost their protection against citizen lawsuits. aka "qualified immunity." @IQ2US twitter.com/IQ2US/status/1…
A reminder on Election Day ... we've just recorded a debate that takes a long view on our uniquely American process ... back to the primaries...why they exist, how they function. Worth a listen. @IQ2US twitter.com/IQ2US/status/1…
Shortly getting on stage with @paragkhanna @RanaForoohar for an @IQ2US debate on whether globalization has worked as intended, or backfired. As usual, I moderate. We're part of the annual #ypoedge, happening this year in NYC. twitter.com/YPO/status/158…
This was an excellent @IQ2US debate taped last night on what to do about Disinformation. Stay tuned for details on the public release date. Thanks for all debaters for giving it your all, and for showing we can disagree civilly. And to #HSEEF22 for being a great partner. twitter.com/HomelandExpert…
Heading out shortly for our pre-debate run-through. Looking forward to the real thing tonight. @IQ2US twitter.com/HomelandExpert…
Today I was in the studio taping an upcoming @IQ2US debate with a strong election theme. The question I asked of the debaters: Are Primary Elections Ruining Democracy. There was a lot to chew on for debaters #JedOber and @EKamarck. Release date to come.
This morning I'm interviewing the New York Times' superb Supreme Court reporter, @adamliptak, to feature in an upcoming @IQ2US debate: Is it time to end #qualifiedimmunity for cops? He's not debating. He's explaining. Release details to come.
We have such a great lineup of debaters for this @IQ2US event we're doing in partnership with @HomelandExperts . Experts who debate = some of my favorite people on stage! #MichaelChertoff @wiczipedia @CACarithers @stewartbaker twitter.com/HomelandExpert…
One of my favorite debaters, @nickgillespie, stepping in to guest moderate a live @IQ2US debate tonight in NYC. That means it is going to be good! twitter.com/IQ2US/status/1…
Rare endorsement from me (of any kind). The show #BadSisters is a delight. @AppleTV. With the season finale next Friday, I recommend a binge. Oh....and it's Irish.
Long Live The British Monarchy? #Debate @GrahamSmith_ argues no. “It’s wrong in principle because we are Democrats. We believe in #equality, the rule of #law, accountability and so on. It is quite obviously undemocratic to allow someone to inherit public office.”

What would happen to the polarization among us humans if alien life is discovered (or discovers us)? I loved moderating this @IQ2US debate, because of questions like that which kept coming up. Take a listen. As always, keep an open mind. twitter.com/IQ2US/status/1…
It's back to school season and @IQ2US @JohnDonvan are asking us to think about whether the SAT is still relevant. A good debate topic -- and a really challenging question. Follow/ vote below. twitter.com/IQ2US/status/1…

Biden's #StudentDebtCancellation announcement: of course Twitterworld is aflame. But there's a way to argue the issue better -- and we have it here courtesy of @daliejimenez @ACHesquire @nickgillespie @DrBethAkers Take a breath, please. Listen. intelligencesquaredus.org/debate/forgive… @IQ2US

Want some tips on how to argue better ..,? Join me live this evening online when I talk with debate world champion @helloboseo, about his new book, "Good Arguments" and the way we can all make them. An @IQ2US special. intelligencesquaredus.org/debate/debate-…
said with my @IQ2US hat on: if you think we as a culture could debate better than we do (you KNOW that's a yes!) join me live Wed when I get ideas from the great @helloboseo. intelligencesquaredus.org/debate/debate-…
I'm chatting live Wednesday with World Champ debater @helloboseo and reading an advance copy of his book. Love this line: "When we...mock an opponent...we exempt ourselves from the much harder task of wrestling with the actual disagreement at hand" @IQ2US intelligencesquaredus.org/debate/debate-…
Therein would lie the challenge, @MarcSchaefferGD. Our team and I just might rise to it. twitter.com/MarcSchaefferG…
Just waiting for the call! Get the whole @IQ2US on the job! twitter.com/eusocialityblo…
March 4, 1955. If you know anyone who was born on this date, drop a like.
I just hosted an @IQ2US debate on the Roe leak. The two debaters, @maryrziegler and @whignewtons (Sarah Isgur) proving sharp disagreement and civil discourse are NOT incompatible. Take a listen. Bet you'll learn something. intelligencesquaredus.org/debate/agree-t…
Is it possible for people, holding differing opinions to debate in a manner that doesn't involve demonizing? Most definitely. And @IQ2US is proof. Had a great chat with @clea_conner and @JohnDonvan of Intelligence Squared US. fcmakingmedia.podbean.com/e/intelligence…

One of the benefits of being the host of @IQ2US is being able to have conversations like these and talk to experts like @kvolker and @EmmaMAshford. Give our episode on #Ukraine a listen: bit.ly/3isMKCT
Pfizer and Moderna recently announced their intention to ask for authorization on a second booster to their COVID-19 vaccines. Listen to our debate on the ethics of the boosters with @VinGuptaMD, @DrLeanaWen and host @JohnDonvan: smarturl.it/s5gpqu

A lot of the big-picture stuff can get lost in the day-to-day coverage of #Ukraine, but (I'd like to think) our @IQ2US episode on the conflict and Putin's invasion does a good job of looking at a lot of what's at stake in this war for the wider world. bit.ly/3isMKCT
The latest @IQ2US debate is out now. Join me and our debaters Jennifer Hernandez, @joelkotkin, @margaretomara, and Ed Glaeser to hear their thoughts on the state of big cities like #NewYork, #Boston, #SanFrancisco, #LosAngeles and maybe where you live! bit.ly/3IxNBwz
As the news from #Ukraine looks ever more dire, I find myself re-listening to our @IQ2US debate on the conflict. Our debaters @EmmaMAshford and @kvolker, really contextualize the invasion and what it means for you and me. bit.ly/3isMKCT

Hope you can join us for our next @IQ2US debate. bit.ly/3IxNBwz Jennifer Hernandez, @joelkotkin, @margaretomara, and Ed Glaeser join me 3/24 to talk the future of #BigCities. Whether you're a Manhattanite or living life in the country, there's a lot to hear in this one!
As the US and NATO work to provide further support to the Ukrainians, I hope you find this @IQ2US debate between @EmmaMAshford and @kvolker helps add some context to the conflict. @cepa @AtlanticCouncil bit.ly/3isMKCT
As #Ukraine's President #Zelensky turns to the US Congress for help today ... @IQ2US ... we take measure of where US strategic interests lie ... a sharp, timely debate on the question ... intelligencesquaredus.org/debates/agree-…
As president, Barack Obama asked, "Will somebody tell me: What’s the American stake in #Ukraine?” At 12:30 Tues, I'm live online hosting @EmmaMAshford & @kvolker who will debate that very question, and more. Join us! We'll take your questions too. @IQ2US workcast.com/register?cpak=…

It was my pleasure to speak with @Rudawkurdish about the death of #ISIS leader al-Quraishi. We also covered the enduring strong partnerships of the #US with the #SDF, Iraqi security forces, and #Peshmerga, as well as the often harmful actions of #Turkey in Syria.
