Excellent

This podcast rewards careful listening. Through thoughtful, clear analysis Roger Berkowitz helps his listeners into and through the complex and nuanced ideas of Hannah Arendt. The podcast is relevant to anyone interested in modern social and political history, contemporary politics, and what it means to be human. Working through Arendt’s oeuvre with Berkowitz has opened my mind and given me confidence to think independently. I listen to an episode every morning and think back on it regularly throughout the day. Thank you to the Hannah Arendt Center!

Roger Berkowitz is a great teacher & a great reader

The professor who does this podcast is always brilliant and both original and articulate in his encounter with Hannah Arendt. There is nothing else like it.
