Emporia State University
Charles Brown and Greg Schneider are friends and professors of the social sciences department at Emporia State University, Kansas. Brown, a progressive and environmental philosopher, sparkles clarity, passion and an easygoing character with an often self-deprecating sense of humor.
Schneider, an affable conservative historian with a penchant for trains, physically towers over his friend as they spend hours walking and arguing politics. When they decide to spar in a public debate on the Common Good their competitiveness hits a new high.
Will Charlie, a less experienced debater, stand his ground? Can their debate "save America through civil dialog?"
