Last week, both Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks held debates at Politicon, a political conference that took place in California.

Kasparian debated Ann Coulter and was on a panel with Scottie Nell Hughes. Uygur debated Ben Shapiro.

This week, both Kasparian and Uygur discussed what happened behinds the scenes of the debates in a The Young Turks Post Game, and they spoke out on a wide range of topics.

One of the most controversial things that came out of Politicon was whether Ben Shapiro or Cenk Uygur won in their debate. Uygur discussed how he felt about it.

My side is going to say I won, and his side is gonna say he won...But you can tell...there's a whole bunch of people in the crowd that all told me the same thing, which is...they came in guns blazing -- 'boo we hate the guy and stuff' -- and then they were...there were murmurs in the crowd that 'that one was kind of a good point'

He said that it was ironic that that Shapiro's crowd booed him, because Shapiro makes a big deal about censorship of conservatives.

But, he said that several of Shapiro's fans admitted that he did better than they thought he would do. He also said that the fact that Shapiro fans thought he had hired a debate coach proved he did well.

Another topic of conversation was Trump supporter Scottie Nell Hughes. Hughes was on a panel debating Ana, among others, about why millennials don't like conservatives.

In talking about Hughes, Uygur said that she's "like a circus performer," and there are many of those on TV. He explained that people like Hughes aren't as bad as people who make policy.
