So needed in the Homeschool podcast world

I love the focus on the philosophical in this podcast. I believe Dr. Christopher Perrin said in a different podcast interview that it’s great when you explore the practical, but you need to know why you are doing what you are doing. This podcast explains the why and also talks about the practical. And it’s wonderful to have a Catholic and Orthodox perspective for once one Classical education.

Good podcast, but . . .

I was beginning to enjoy this podcast - there are so many great practical insights. However, I had to stop listening to the podcast with Brandy Vencel (although I love her podcasts!!) as a guest, because I couldn’t stand all of the snorting with the giggling. One snort is understandable, but many times over the course of a podcast was really grating. I didn’t notice it in the previous podcasts, just that one, and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t Brandy. Other than that pet peeve, it really is a good podcast lol.

Fascinating, may be tricky for Classical newbies

I frequently have to pause the podcast to ponder and wonder at some wonderful idea they are discussing! While the topics are always deep, the early episodes have a very serious feel, but the gals become much more light-hearted and easy to listen to in later episodes. My reason for giving only 4 stars is because it would be difficult to jump in as an explorer of Classical education, as they provide little or no explanation for many references- it's assumed you can follow along with the occasional Latin phrase thrown in, or know who wrote which ancient texts.
