This week, we were joined by Kyle Fleck, our newest addition to Counterpoint! Naturally, we talked ’2014. Everything from Florida to Senate races all across the country. We also snuck in a bit of Ebola and the question of quarantining high-risk individuals. We ended with some speculation about 2016 and who might make a run at the executive. As always, catch a replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we started by following up on the Florida election situation on the heels of the third debate. We then talked about some lesser-known yet still very important measures on the ballot for Florida this year: medical marijuana and the decision for who gets to appoint judges to the State Supreme Court (Amendments two and three, respectively). We then moved into medicare and broader Florida politics. We ended by postulating about the 2014 election nationwide. As always, hit the jump after the break to catch the replay. Keep it locked.

This week, we were joined again by Joe Pettinelli who will be taking over for Jordan in the coming months. We started by talking about Fangate and then transitioned into Florida politics in general. After the break, we talked about the Ebola outbreak and what the U.S. is and should be doing to keep ourselves safe from the outbreak. We ended with a brief discussion on The Snappening.

This week, we started by talking ’2014. After that we moved on to a lively discussion on Florida’s 2nd measure on the ballot this November and marijuana in general. It’s a busy week, so that’s all the description there is this week. As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we were joined by a very special guest: Louis Chan, from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Louis spoke with us about the recent political unrest brewing in Hong Kong dubbed the “umbrella revolution” and we got the chance to ask him some questions to better understand what was happening. I had bumped in to Louis at an event the previous night on the topic of the umbrella revolution and he agreed to come on the show, so special thanks again to him for doing so on such short notice.

After that, we started with discussing the College Republicans’ “Say Yes to the Dress” parody commercial and kind of slid into abortion unprepared (we didn’t have Nicole to provide a female perspective).

Nevertheless I think it worked out well. As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we talked about Eric Holder’s resignation and then we wandered off topic quite a bit, touching on Ferguson, and even on poverty and the minimum wage. Then we touched on education reform to round out the show. That’s all I’ve got this week: it’s first-test/paper-of-the-semester week! As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we talked the obvious: Scotland’s vote. Admittedly, all of us on the show had little if any personal stake in the matter, but it was still fun to consider what could have been. Then we moved on to the Ray Rice scandal and other prominent football players’ recent dealings with the media and domestic abuse allegations. That’s all for the description!

This week, due to some unfortunate turns of events, Jordan and Nicole were unable to make the show. So instead we had Counterpoint: Mike and Mike edition. We started by talking about the saddening news that Shalala was retiring from being the president of The U. We then talked about Iraq and ISIS (ISIL this week, subject to change). We then discussed Net Neutrality much to my pleasure due to a viewer request from last week (yay!). We then moved to talking about the Ray Rice situation and back to ISIS due to another viewer text-in. We finished with a talk about a documentary Mike Fuentes found out about a little while ago called “Fed Up” and back to ISIS in the context of global security from another viewer text.

This week, we had our full roster: Jordan, Mike (Fuentes), and Nicole. We started by talking about the ISIS beheading of journalist Sotloff and the U.S.-Iraqi relationship in general. We then moved to discussing the Jennifer Lawrence and other celebrities’ nude photo hack/leak from earlier this week. We got into quite the discussion, and will likely be revisiting this topic in the near future. As always, hit the jump after the break to catch the recording. Keep it locked.

Due to some untimely interferences this week, we were back to Counterpoint: Mike & Mike edition. We started by talking about the upcoming Florida governor race. We then moved to get Mike Fuentes’ opinion in ISIS and the situation in Iraq, as he was unavailable for a few weeks previously. We finished with Mike Fuentes’ view on the Ferguson incident and gun control in general. As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.
