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.
