Anchored: The Official CLT Podcast
By Tyler Bonin
Conversation lies at the heart of what CLT does. By putting students in front of enduring texts—those of momentous impact to the world— CLT seeks to connect students to a unifying common intellectual heritage. By anchoring itself in this tradition, the conversation can continue. However, this does not mean subjection to a static line of thoughts and philosophies from centuries ago, but rather conveys access to the influential debates that bear growing significance to today’s world; these are the conversations that have shaped meaning behind critical endeavors for equality, justice, and more. CLT’s passion exists in the pursuit to reconnect knowledge and virtue.
In the spirit of conversation, CLT is excited to announce the debut of our official podcast Anchored, a weekly program in which CEO Jeremy Tate engages with leading thinkers on topics at the intersection of education and culture. The show will also feature noteworthy news in the education sphere, including everything from issues in school choice to developments in higher education. The first episode will launch on Thursday, September 3rd at 3:00 PM, with new episodes available every week at the same time, wherever you subscribe to podcasts.
Anchored’s first guest is Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions. He is also co-leader of E Pluribus Unum, a lecture series sponsored by the University of Dallas and the American Enterprise Institute focused on finding unity in America despite persistent differences. His talk with Jeremy engages with the consequences of society’s abandonment of liberal arts education, the deeper streams of thought that informed the American Founding, and what that means for building unity. He also provides us with an inside look at his famous friendship with Cornel West and how conversations on texts important to their intellectual journeys led to an enduring relationship that models civil discourse today. We hope you join us for this and many more compelling conversations.
