Welcome to the Heritage Podcast

A Complete Liberal Arts Education (in Podcast Form).


     The liberal arts education is the education of free individuals. It develops the mind and tempers the heart of the student by drawing on the entire history of human thought and experience: history, literature, philosophy, religion, the classics, the arts, and the sciences. These studies are our “heritage,” an inheritance forged by the thousands of years of the greatest minds in conversation with one another! Learning from them, students rise to the challenge of living as free moral agents, equipped for self-government as citizens of a free land.

     The plan for this podcast is to offer an entire liberal arts education to anyone, anywhere, free of charge. The end result should in some ways amount to a rigorous bachelor’s degree program from a small liberal arts college. This is an ambitious goal of which we will probably fall short! But by striving to embrace the entire sweeping epic of human thought, we hope to refine our intellects, furnish our understandings, and confer upon ourselves the abilities and wisdom necessary to lead full, humane lives.

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.” — Albert Einstein
