    Default Debates?

    Just an idea for a segment, while there is a lull in the news.

    How about something like debates.

    Say "Is Umbrella Chronicles good?"
    "Which is better, RE4 or RE5?"

    Questions which are balanced, rather then something that almost everyone agrees on. Then the podcast roster is assigned a side, say 3v3, and then each speaker has 4-5 minutes to argue their case and address the oppositions.

    Keep to strict time limits, and then possibly have a follow up poll after the show is released, asking who the audience thinks won the debate.

    a "free for all" segment would be more interesting to listen to then something like a formal debate

    everyone let loose and try to assert your point any way possible.

    Would there really be much to say? I don't think we could turn it into something interesting, honestly. We'd be debating a fictional universe, which in itself is kinda fruitless. Thats kinda why I avoid arguments about the motives of characters and such. In the end, its all just the brainchild of a person and well, like it or not its what we have.

    If you have a specific suggestion though Gene, lemme know and maybe we can turn it into something.

    I'm going to sound like a total douche, but I don't know how.

    I use Audacity. It's a free program you can download and it's really easy to use. PM me if you decide to use it and need help. Trying not to spam. XD;

    I'd like to see this but it depends if the regulars of the Podcast are into it. It seems Dot doesn't have much interest in it and Gene does. What about everyone else?

    instead of debate, how's about a listen up style "4 minute warning" section, if anyone listens to that podcast.

    You take a topic of debate that's currently active in the forums or in the general RE scene, and you give each person on the podcast a minute or two to give their arguments and what have you to prove their version of it as the right one.

    A small formal debate would be terrific! Like a little mini-segment or something. It doesn't even have to relate to Resi Evil

    I don't think I have a microphone or anything.

    I agree Dot50Cal, I don't see any need for debates on the RPD Dispatch podcasts.

    You do know replying to an almost 1yr old post doesn't make sense.
