Learning on the Run

Until October, when I had to curtail my activities, I enjoyed listening to history lectures on my longer runs. Below are some of my favorites.

Series from The Teaching Company:

Donald Kagan’s “Ancient Greek History” lectures are available for free through Open Yale Courses. Both audio and video are available.  In one lecture he  uses students to demonstrate the hoplite phalanx. The video is hilarious.

I remain an enthusiastic subscriber to Ken Myers’ Mars Hill Audio Journal, which “is committed to assisting Christians who desire to move from thoughtless consumption of contemporary culture to a vantage point of thoughtful engagement. “

    Charlie: I am sending by US Postal Service A “Great Books” presentation by Rufus Fears on WINSTON CHURCHILL. We’ll be in touch sometime after December. Blessings, Sterling N. Sorrell and Myrene Hoge-Sorrell

      I have often thought about listening to that series of lectures. Thank you for your kindness!
