A Year in Review
We've had an outstanding year with our own little corner of the Great Conversation.
We launched our podcast Anchored at the end of summer in 2020. In the year and a half since, we’ve seen astonishing growth, and had delightful conversations with dozens of friends of the CLT, from professors to activists to students. Our top ten biggest hits from this year, and the books our guests recommended, were:
10. Kevin Clark and Ravi Jain on their book The Liberal Arts Tradition (March 11). Recommended reading: After Virtue by Alasdair MacIntyre.
9. Jack Schneider and Jennifer Berkshire on their book The Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door (May 20). Recommended reading: The Souls of Black Folk by W. E. B. Du Bois.
8. Dr. Jay Greene on the radical deviation of mainstream education (August 9). Recommended reading: Making the Grade: The Economic Evolution of American School Districts by William Fischel.
7. Zuby on progressive academia and the accessibility of education (July 8). Recommended reading: The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt.
5. Dr. Anika Prather and two of her students from Howard University on the meaning of the classics (March 4). Recommended reading: A Voice From the South by Anna Julia Cooper.
2. Hamza Yusuf on the “secret sauce” of western civilization (November 4). Recommended reading: the Quran.
Honorable Mention: Grove City College podcast. Our recent conversation with Dr. Carl Trueman, Megan Basham, and Lee Wishing has been doing gangbusters with audiences as well. Check it out!
