Smash Boom Best
Smash Boom Best is a debate show for kids and families. Every episode takes two cool things, smashes them together and lets you decide which is best. Aliens versus robots. Chocolate versus cheese. Ice age versus Jurassic. Debaters use facts and passion to make their case to kid judges, while also teaching listeners how to defend their own opinions along the way.
