Announcing ‘The Great Books’ Podcast

I’m pleased to announce another new NR podcast: The Great Books. This one, as the old English paint commercial has it, “does exactly what it says on the tin.” Each week, Hillsdale’s John J. Miller will join a professor to discuss one of the great works of the Western literary canon. This week, it’s Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Next week, Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The week after, Xenophon’s The Expedition of Cyrus. And so on. Each episode is around half an hour — perfect for your drive to work or trip to the gym.

You can find The Great Books on NRO each week, of course But it’ll be easier for you if you subscribe on your phone, tablet, or computer, and have new episodes automatically download to your device. Currently, The Great Books is on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and TuneIn. Enjoy!

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
