This week we come to you direct from Davenant House! Recorded during our Annual Convivium Irenicum (and so apologies for slightly subpar audio quality), Onsi and Colin talk with Michael Lynch about classical education. Or rather, how much of what calls itself classical education isn't that classical at all.
How can we remedy that? What should a real Christian classical education look like? Surprisingly, it may involve fart jokes.
