Pointless Debates Episodes

In the beginning of 2020, Todd and Eric thought that it would be fun to stage some playful arguments, based on innocuous topics, for which there were literally no stakes.  We choose the debate topics based on listener requests and/or from a series of unmarked envelopes that our executive producer Abby fabricated for us.

In each episode, we arbitrarily decide who will argue pro or con before we even know what the topic is…and leave it to the listeners (via Twitter poll) to decide the victor!
