Simoncast guest: April Kornfield speaks with John Shaw

April Kornfield, director of debates for Braver Angels, explains her organization's unique style of debate, which Kornfield describes as a "collective search for truth" rather than a fight to be won or lost. Kornfield also tells us how debates can build and strengthen relationships if done the right way.

Hosted by John Shaw. Produced and edited by Alee Quick. This podcast is produced through a partnership between the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute and WSIU Public Radio. For more, visit paulsimoninstitute.org/podcasts.
