The hosts do a great job breaking down topics in an easier to understand and digestible manner….but they (especially Graham) need some freaking pop filters and to practice better Mic etiquette….the amount of gross mouth sounds between words and voice is terrible. Please hydrate better and put a...Read full review »

The content is great it’s just the rambling that gets annoying. If you give a listen, skip through the first five minutes to get to the good stuff. Overall great quality of information and random facts.
Jostoast via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/22
Each episode is humor wrapped in knowledge. Yes, you read that right. Graeme and AJ are bitter rivals yet star crossed lovers doomed to eternal dissension of the slightest degree. (The filling) Thomas is a tortured soul stuck in the middle, cursed with the task of holding the podcast together by...Read full review »

Thomas mentioned the podcast has received several five star reviews recently, which is awesome. So I decided to peruse said reviews. Sure enough, a bunch of them. But, what's this? A one star? A three star? "Unsubscribed"? If you give this entertaining/educational podcast anything...Read full review »

I am so happy to have found this podcast! Where has it been all my life? I too teach High School Classical Education and your podcast is super fun. Sincerely, Lisa R.

Just happened upon this podcast on Philosophy & I am delighted with their choices of examining this subject; using literature such as “Crime & Punishment”, & “Atlas Shrugged”.

I’m a conservative christian and am classically educating my children at home. So many academic types are antagonistic to our worldview, and so many christian materials and resources are not academically rigorous. It is so refreshing to hear content from these three intellectual gentlemen that is...Read full review »

Learning things about classics while laughing at their banter makes for a good time. Solid podcast; it’s on my regular rotation!

As a former student of Veritas, and specifically of two of these three gentlemen I have only good things to say about classical education. I enjoy listening to Donaldson’s violent reaction whenever existentialism is mentioned. I enjoy Magbee’s straightforward and level headed approach to...Read full review »

This is a great entry level introduction to classical books and ideas. The banter is very enjoyable, and the content is interesting. I would love to hear an episode on different philosophies of history (and by extension, of historians).

If you are at all interested in art and literature, if you are at all excited about the concept of virtue and how to apply it to your life, if you are at all intrigued by the questions around how to educate your kids, then this podcast is essential.

But I don’t blame you for not knowing. It’s not in the archives.

AJ’s reading of Seneca’s letters was nothing short of painful. Rushing through the material and constantly stumbling over words in his haste showed a careless and unprofessional effort. Unsubscribed.
stargazerkismet via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/05/22
The speaker sometimes… goes on forever, apparently reading something, gets lost and angry with others… and… suddenly ends the conversation. See ep 79. It’s interesting but slightly annoying. Good for educational purposes… and folks who don’t want to read this stuff.
JesterDean via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/21
The banter and lack of depth/scholarship won’t appeal to many but it works for me. An enjoyable listen.

Loved it, definitely recommend. They're funny and also I feel like I'm learning something.Read full review »
TheKunadiun via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/21
A very fun podcast but I’ve found a few subjects that they lack research. They seem to pick one source and basically review a book. I wish they would explore multiple sources, a lot of one sided information.
Facts not Opinions via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/11/21
This podcast is simply great. I have listened to almost three episodes after finding this podcast earlier in the day. The education topics and the fun banter will easily kept you entertained and make you laugh. It’s both invigorating as fascinating. It reminds me of the late night...Read full review »

I’m an agnostic-atheist who loves classical literature/philosophy/history/etc. I love these guys. Their banter and commentary is relevant, funny and insightful.
Brendan Peters via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/28/21
You guys ROCK!
Jayhawksi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/22/21
This podcast is simply great. I love the approach to topics, thoughts on education and ultimately the examination on how to think through worldview to drive a meaningful life.
Thor Ajax via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/10/21
I just discovered this podcast today and have listened to four or five episodes. I really enjoy everything these guys are doing, and I understand they’re all staff at a Christian school, however, it seems there is a sometimes-unwarranted attempt to tie EVERY piece of classical literature back to...Read full review »
asprof34 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/21
The hosts discuss some really interesting topics, but I stopped listening partway through the third episode I had downloaded because of the preponderance of religious content - not of the topic matter, but I hadn’t realised (because there is no mention in the description) that the three hosts are...Read full review »

I really enjoy their thoughts and topics.
kacsings via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/21
I started listening to this podcast sporadically a few months ago, then on a road trip my 8 year old heard part of the Frankenstein episode and became obsessed; requesting to listen multiple times over the last few days. I, myself, have listened all day today as I worked cleaning the house and on...Read full review »
HaleeBurch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/21
I have listened to every single episode and cannot get enough of these guys. They are hilarious and engaging. They are honest about being generalists, which means they aren’t experts on these topics, but they are clearly intelligent and offer insights I could never have gleaned on my own. I just...Read full review »
frog*star via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/21
Good points, however, it cannot pass quite as academia since the hosts believe the bible to be true stuff, which is like believing in Santa Claus. And is CS Lewis some kind of house god?
för i h*****e via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 05/01/21
I’ve listened to about half of the episodes so far and will likely continue until I’ve heard them all. My own education was very far from “classical” and it’s nice to have a place I can go to learn a bit about different works that I see referenced all the time but know nothing about. As someone...Read full review »
Who Writes Reviews, Anyway? via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/21
I’ve only listed to a few episodes far. I tried vetting the hosts, and of the two I could find much about, they both work at Veritas Academy, a Christian school in Austin that focuses on a classical education. I love the idea of this podcast - giving people easily accessible and engaging content...Read full review »

This is the sort of podcast I'd be really interested in listening to generally. I've only listened to about 5 of the episodes, so this may not apply to most of the content, but I was incredibly disappointed by the level of engagement with the material. I listened to the episodes on Till...Read full review »

I loved the Bible episode. Ray Vander Laan has also discussed the significance in the numbers regarding the two accounts of the feeding of the masses. Ray Vander Laan’s That The World May Know series is great for a deeper layer of Biblical study like what was discussed in this episode. Keep up...Read full review »
LuvUSHistory via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/21
There is no analysis, no scholarship, no argument, no disagreement, no historical context, no originality, no links to the present (at least in the one episode I heard), and the thinnest of veils hiding a budding misogynous hatred of modern pluralist society. This is what’s wrong with America’s...Read full review »

Love this podcast! I just started learning about Classical Education through The Well Trained Mind and homeschooling. As a high school English teacher, I know a lot of the stories and content, but you are all masterful storytellers and make it so fun for me to review or learn anew. Thank you for...Read full review »

A great primer for Classical Christian Education and curriculum content. Great guys. Veritas is blessed to have you!
HighTory via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/02/20
Would’ve been a great conversation but completely derailed over quibbling about animals vs humans. Completely missed the point of the book and heart of Girard’s ideas.
BradaMcDonald via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/20
Thanks for confusing the heck out of me and making me feel dumb. I was fascinated by the back and forth about the difference between animals and mankind...fun to listen to. However, I had no freakin' idea what you were talking about. I needed one of those string boards cops use. Really enjoy...Read full review »

Love this podcast, whether it's the normal routine or the new quarantine stories! I originally typed in Classical onto the podcast search engine to find something to put me to sleep, and was happily awake listening to these guys. Now it's part of my routine before bed to listen to...Read full review »

Hi A.J., thanks so much for recording the Decameron series. I’m actually in Milan during the lockdown, and as someone who speaks minimal Italian and stuck in Italy, having the stories read in English by you(not that easy to come across a voice as pleasing to the ears as yours) is truly a treat!...Read full review »

Had a bad dream last night- it was a nightmere. Awesome dudes. Awesome podcast. Keep it up! Edit: If I hear Thomas finish one of his devil's advocate counters with "eyedoeno" one more time, I'm going to lose my mind.Read full review »

Quarantine has been rough so thank you A.J. For taking time to do this through quarantine! It’s super fun to listen to while doing Latin! (Or anything)
Why minecraft why via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/20
I’ve listened to every episode of this podcast, and Thomas, Graham, and AJ make learning feel like a good conversation with friends. Their episodes on Paradise Lost, art, and Plato’s Republic are especially interesting. It was only this week that I realized that their love of all things classical...Read full review »

As someone interested in philosophy, classics, and so on, but doesn’t always have the time to read and learn, this podcast is a gift! The boys are also a heap of fun to listen to. Can’t recommend enough. Sending love from New Zealand 💕
theflameprince via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 02/08/20
Interesting topics;well-researched but three people talking make the episodes hard to follow.
Vx2401 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/20
The substance is great, but the fillers are distracting. Too many uh, um, ah, and uh, etc.
