I'm joined by Dr. Gary Larson for this episode. Dr. Larson is currently the Director of Institutional Research and Academic Support at Wheaton college, but people in debate are more likely to know him from his over thirty years of presence in Tabrooms across the community, and for him being one of the fathers of the modern preference system used across debate. In this interview we talk about Dr. Larson's background in debate, how he came to run tabrooms, the history and controversy of prefs, and the misconceptions that abound about how you should do your pref sheet.
