The Learned Free: The Heritage Podcast

It has been said that the learned are free, but is the learning ever free? Well at "The Heritage Podcast" it is. The following is a brief excerpt from "The Heritage Podcast" website. I strongly recommend you check it out at http://heritagepodcast.com/ My family, co-workers and I all love listening to these podcasts and are forever now enlightened. You too can become enlightened and you can do it for free! ;)

Welcome to the Heritage Podcast

A Complete Liberal Arts Education (in Podcast Form).


          What are the liberal arts? Simply put, they are the education of free individuals, and they entail the study of things eternally worthwhile. A liberal education develops the minds and tempers the hearts of students by drawing on the entire history of human thought and experience: history, literature, philosophy, religion, the classics, the arts, and the sciences. Through such an education, students rise to the challenge of living as free and moral agents, equipped for self-government as citizens of a republic. The liberal arts are our “heritage”; an inheritance forged by the thousands of lives of thinkers, authors, and leaders from the past to today.


          The plan for this podcast is to offer an entire liberal arts education to anyone, anywhere, free of charge. The end result of this podcast should in some ways amount to a rigorous bachelor’s degree program from a small liberal arts college. This is an ambitious goal of which we will probably fall short! But by striving to embrace the entire sweeping epic of human thought, we hope to refine our intellects, furnish our understandings, and confer upon ourselves the abilities and wisdom necessary to lead full, humane lives.

These are my favourite podcasts...which is saying a lot from someone who can barely sit through most "talks". These are engaging and not annoying:)! Plus informative and well educated and articulated. And FREE!:)
