Finally a podcast actually about books

Great discussion and informative. Keep up the great book reviews!

Surprisingly good

The shows consistently have intelligent discussions of quality literature and, for the most part, you can’t tell that it’s sponsored by a right-wing magazine. Except for the ads. The ads are hilariously right-wing. Did you know conservative parents pay to train their college bound kids to resist “liberal indoctrination”? Apparently some are dumb enough to do so. And there’s a business ready to take their money! Long live capitalism!

The Great Books: Brideshead Revisited

Enjoyed it. But, big error on Miller’s part. Anglo-Catholics are Anglicans with ‘high’ liturgical practices (and theology) that are similar to Roman practices. The Flytes are Roman Catholics and would only be referred to as such.
