At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom.
Our Journey Through Books: Poetry Edition
After this episode's discussion about our favorite poetry, The Classical Homeschool Podcast will be ending for both the season and as a whole. It has been a wild ride and we are so grateful to all you who have listened and connected with us over the last 4 years.
Christine Perrin on Poetry and the Moral Imagination
We had the pleasure of chatting with this accomplished guest about poetry and the moral imagination. It was an exciting conversation that leaves the listener with much to consider about how poetry is being read and even where we are not engaging poetry in our lives.
Dante in the Homeschool: An Interview with Erin Deschene
This was an exciting episode for me, Ashley, personally. I love this amazing guest, mostly because we can really dig into the classical tradition and challenge each other with our differing knowledge bases. I hope that you enjoy this interview as much as I did. Erin makes me laugh and brings my heart to Jesus in every conversation. She is sharing her love of Dante with us, so put your ear buds in and get ready to laugh. Side note: It was Melrose Place...not 90210...LOL ... that I was thinking of!
The Dark Forest: Evil and Redemption
The last chapter of Tending the Heart of Virtue by Vigen Guroian is upon us. Join us for a lively conversation about the horror genre and what redemption means for the broken world.
Adam Andrews and Literary Elements
Join us as we chat how the elements of literature impact our reading and understanding. How does this form the moral imagination? Listen to find out!
A Canon of Humanity: Finding Unity in Diversity
Taking a side street off of the topic of moral imagination, we are discussing Ashley's thesis concerning the idea of a canon of humanity. In the current Classical homeschooling climate, the focus has been on the advancement of Western Culture. However, Classical Education is not tied to an earthly structure but is based on more lofty ideals. Join us while we explore the topic!
