    Light the Candle of Knowledge (Prologue)

    Light the Candle of Knowledge (Prologue)

    In a special prologue episode, Jarvis calls his former high school teacher (Christopher Wendelin), and listens to him share a medley of personal experiences. In particular, Chris shares: the first time encountering the “Candle of Knowledge” concept, his journey to becoming an English teacher, his memories of teaching Jarvis in 2006, and their reconnection in 2017. This completes the origin story to the title of the podcast, and serves as the prelude to the third volume of the series, which is currently in development. Enjoy!
