St. John’s College, the third-oldest college in the U.S., has launched a new 20-episode podcast and web series examining the mysteries of who we are as humans, and why we see each other and the world as we do.
Titled ‘Continuing the Conversation,’ the series explores ideas that have shaped human history, with a focus on western and eastern literature, science, philosophy, and mathematics.
It will have alternating hosts, including St. John’s tutors Sarah Davis, Zena Hitz, Louis Petrich, and Krishnan Venkatesh. They will be joined by guests to discuss and connect over the profound and the personal.
St. Johns College is widely considered the most contrarian college for its distinct and steadfast approach to the liberal arts.
The College says listeners can expect conversations that “explore the conflict between the ideals America was founded upon and the lived reality of life in America; the centrality of family conflict in dramas from Ancient Greece to modern Japan; the relationship between sports and war; and the tension between philosophical ideals and political realities, among other thought- and conversation-provoking topics.”
Continuing the Conversation is now available on all major podcast platforms and YouTube.
