About us

Our Mission

We are a small group of current and former debaters, who have found the places to sell quality files to be lacking. We hope to fill this void with high-quality files, being produced throughout the season. 

Meet Our Staff

Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Director of Research - Alex C. Turley

I debated four years at Hutchinson High School, I also debate for four years at Emporia State University, and I am the former Assistant Director of Debate at Emporia High School. As a debater, my argument changed from very policy to very kritikal. I read arguments ranging from space colonization to counter-narratives. 

Co-Founder, Chief Finance Officer, and Primary Research Author - Alex Rickard

I debated four years at Newton High School and a second-year member of the debate team at Emporia State. In competitions, my arguments have consisted of Zizekien kritiks, identity politics, and performances of poetry.
