    • Hi Joe,

      If the audio becomes available to the public, the best chance of getting it will be to check in on the Apologetics 315 blog. Brian, who runs it, has the most audio on the Web of these kinds of debates and usually posts it as soon as it’s available. I’d recommend subscribing to his feed so you don’t miss it.

      Chris
