The Great Reading List

It feels fabulous to be back! Season Three focuses on the intersection of the books: The Great Tradition by Richard Gamble and Norms and Nobility by David Hicks. Our process in deciding on which chapters to focus was pretty simple; we went to the index of Norms and Nobility and compared it to the chapters of The Great Tradition. So, each of the episodes will focus on an intersecting figure of the classical tradition. We have several interviews coming up with Karen Glass, John Hodges, Wes Callihan, and Jeremy Tate, the founder of the Classical Learning Test (CLT).
