Kentuckian Dwight Yoakam on coal (from "Paradise"):
Well, the coal company came with the, world’s largest shovel,
They tortured the timber and stripped all the land
Lord, they dug for their coal ‘til the ground was forsaken
And wrote it all down as the, “Progress of man.”

And, “Daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County?
Down by the Green River where Paradise lay?”
He said, “I’m sorry my son, but you’re too late in asking
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away.”
Josh Zive responds:

Note: Video of Yoakam singing this song can be found here.

2009 NDT Final Round (video!)

I have an audio recording of the 1983 National Debate Tournament final round, but this is much better -- a video of the 2009 NDT final round, won by the Kansas team of Brett Bricker and Nate Johnson.

Has it really been 30 years since that 1983 season?

Video: Kansas Debate at Wake Forest (2010)

Kansas alum Jason Badgett made this film, which clocks in at just under 11 minutes:


Most of the film focuses on the performance of a Kansas team, Sean Kennedy and Dylan Quigley, at the 2010 Wake Forest tournament. It includes some footage from rounds as well as interviews. Coach Scott Harris appears too.
