Five Big Hits on the Anchored Podcast
It’s been a big year for the Anchored podcast! Since we got started in the summer of 2020, Anchored has grown by leaps and bounds. Jeremy has hosted eminent scholars, veteran teachers, celebrated authors, and many more, from Dale Ahlquist to Karen Swallow Prior to Cornel West. Our top five most popular episodes in 2022 have been:
5. Ignat Solzhenitsyn on The Gulag Archipelago. The son of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and a professional orchestral conductor, Solzhenitsyn discusses the vital roles played by both history and poetry in education and in life.
4. Jacob Imam on the new College of St. Joseph the Worker. The history of Christianity, especially Christian monasticism, is one that celebrates humble work as a path toward holiness. Imam emphasizes this at the newly-founded College of St. Joseph the Worker.
3. Sheikh Hamza Yusuf on the life and work of Averroës. Hamza Yusuf, the president and co-founder of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, CA, discusses the thought of the great Muslim scholastic Ibn Rushd, better known under his Latinized name Averroës, whose impact on Catholic scholasticism and particularly upon Aquinas is all but incalculable.
2. Pete Hegseth and David Goodwin on the battle for the American mind. Hegseth and Goodwin discuss the history of education in this country, from the classical tradition in which the Founding Fathers were educated to the current controversy over progressive content and standards.
And finally, our most-listened to episode of the year:
1. So Your Parents Are Thinking of Sending You to a Classical Christian School, by Joshua Gibbs. Author of the upcoming book Love What Lasts and blogger for the Circe Institute, Gibbs composed the pamphlet “So Your Parents Are Thinking of Sending You to a Classical Christian School” for middle and high school students whose parents are doing just that. This episode includes a reading of this accessible introduction to classical education, suitable for any age!
