As a college admissions professional, I visited Hillsdale College this past summer and had a thoughtful, nuanced discussion with an admissions officer there, and thus was intrigued when I found the 8-25-2017 episode. Unfortunately, I found the show superficial and self-congratulatory. For a more nuanced, thought-provoking podcast, I recommend Pantsuit Politics. If youâre interested in education, the episode on public education finance was enlightening.
Superb eduactional podcast that explores the great works & historical figures that influenced history. Larry Arn and the other Hillsdale professors make great speakers with Hugh Hewitt playing off them nicely. They also know their stuff and will even get you excited to check out the classics, from Herodotus to Virgil. Granted, it does have a conservative slant but it done fairly, making for one of the best educational podcasts out today.
I love listening to Huge Hewitt and Dr. Arnn. So informative from a true and honest conservative American views..Update: where are you? Has the last hour of Friday's podcast been cancelled?
Perhaps education is wasted on the young, but I don't think my professors had the same clarity of understanding and purpose in conveying meaning as Larry Arne and his colleagues at Hillsdale.This is a must listen for anyone who desires to understand first principles while getting a side education in Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln. I would also highly recommended it for home schoolers everywhere.
I pride myself a little that Iâm the one (in my circle of friends/co-workers) that found this podcast. Even though all I did was search âHistoryâ and it was the first one that came up. This is what I shouldâve gotten in school but didnât. These are surveys of the most influential ideas in the Western world, and theyâre presented in an entertaining way. So I can learn a lot to discuss with my family and friends when I otherwise wouldâve just been mindlessly driving along/mowing the yard/etc. Probably no better way to learn great ideas in terms of accessibility/portability/depth/entertainment.
After Holy Mass, this is the greatest hour of my week. Keep them coming!
Far above the typical talk radio model.
This is a great dose of classical and political education each week.
I've been looking for a podcast that would be educational but presented in a manner that a guy who loves 80s metal could understand. I've listened to 6 or 7 episodes so far and am hooked and look forward to the rest of the episodes.
Subscribe to the channel; pick up and listen.
I appreciate and thoroughly enjoy these conversations done by and Dr. Arn and Mr. Hewitt. They do a great job, in a very short amount of time, to give a survey of great literature and great points in history. You come out of these feeling exhausted, fulfilled, and thirsting for more knowledge. These two educated colleagues tap into something that the world overlooks and desperately needs to unearth again.
I am a recent Hillsdale College graduate and wish everyone would listen to this podcast. Even if they don't agree with the politics learning about the great books can never hurt.
