WrestleMania meets Debate Club
Your hosts Meg Pierson, Zak Martellucci, and Dustin Growick lead a rotating cast of special guest experts in a battle royale of serious—and not so serious—topics. Who will come out on top? Dinosaurs or mammals? Biology or physics? Space or oceans? Chock-full of trivia, games, and prizes, the show will conclude with the answer to an age-old question. The winner is up to you, as audience endorsements and YOUR vote will ultimately determine which team is crowned champion of VERSUS.
