Scholar’s Mate

Scholar’s Mate is PublicSquare.net’s signature debate show. Two subject matter experts engage each other in civil, intelligent debate on a narrowly defined yes/no question related to public policy, law, religion, or social issues.

The show has a segment called “Answer This!” in which the experts get to ask questions of each other directly.

There is also a segment called “We Agree!” that focuses on the areas of agreement between the two guests. Each guest is asked to name at least one point on which the two of them agree.

The phrase “Scholar’s Mate” refers to a chess maneuver.
