Essential listening

As a practitioner of and parent in classical education—the great conversation—I find the conversation richer and deeper with the Forma crew in the “room.” Thanks for always-great content.

Variety and quality from a concerned and informed institute

All of Circe’s offerings share a quality approach to the subject at hand. Never taking itself too seriously, personable hosts draw listeners in to feel like part of a community of classically minded and spirited educators.
