Is Tagalog Appropriate for Debate? | FF Podcast

Is Tagalog Appropriate for Debate? | FF Podcast

Erratum: There are 57 million English speakers in the Philippines, while there are only 28 million native Tagalog speakers in the world.

This week, we talk about Teddy Locsin Jr.’s assertion that Tagalog should not be used during the presidential debates. We cut through the profanities to see if there’s any merit to his arguments.
