Great for learning, bad for keeping up with your reading list

I was a late bloomer on reading a lot of literature, and the Great Books Podcast is excellent for revisiting the classics you forgot from high school/college or maybe never got to. Hillsdale faculty do make frequent appearances, and as an alumni it is SO fun to be able to catch up on some of their observations in the text. This podcast is bad for keeping up with your reading list - you will want to read them all.

Canterbury Tales — Excellent!

In the process of reading Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales so great timing. The professor added a lot of information and context that I would not have gotten ... so thank you!

Not too big. Not too small. JUST RIGHT!

Hat tip to National Review for their concise, pithy and to-the point podcasts on the Great Books. I always take away something new regarding each book-something that hadnt occurred to me at all-and inevitably wind up nodding my head, appreciatively. Great books, great lectures.Well done, National Review!
