George Wythe College Hour (Kim)

I am so excited about what I found that I had to share it with everyone. I was looking at the George Wythe College website, trying to find information about the 5 pillar certification, (Link here) and I came across a link called the George Wythe College Hour. I clicked on it and was excited to find that it is a one hour radio show colloquium. They have a panel of people that discuss a particular reading each week. On the GWC website you can listen to the previous broadcasts and also download the essays or lectures they have discussed and will discuss. (If they are discussing a book they have a link to the book for you to purchase.) Next week they are discussing The Lonesome Gods, and later this summer they will be discussing The Chosen and A Thomas Jefferson Education. What a great way for me to work on my own education and learn more about some of the books we have discussed. It is also a great way for me to broaden my horizons and not only read other great works, but now I have the opportunity to hear what the great minds out there have to say about them. I am definitely going to take advantage of this wonderful new opportunity. And the great thing about it is I can listen to it whenever I want. How wonderful is that!

Kim, I was also delighted when I recently ran upon this nugget! I can't wait to start listening in on someone else's colloquium. I love our colloquiums, but look forward to them getting even better with opportunities like this open to us.

How neat is that. I hope I remember that it is on. I would like to hear what they have to say. Thanks Kim.

I tried to download one of the past colloquiums, but it didn't work. Any suggestions?
Also, I just happened to be listening to the mid-day connection on KJNP at 9 one morning and they advertised that they will be discussing Robinson Crusoe in August. One more opportunity to read a book and hear other's talk about it. Sounds fun!
