CiRCE Institute's Annual Conference CD Set:

I've only listened to Anthony Esolen's session on humour. He uses three examples: The Honeymooners, St. Francis of Assisi and Nick Bottom from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Nights Dream. Quite a combination, isn't it? But that CD alone is worth the cost of the set (FYI: this is wrongly listed as What is Classical Education? The individual CD code is CD200803.)

For the last fifteen years I've been grateful to Mars Hill Audio Journal for keeping my mind expanding while my responsibilities were here at home; now I get to add the CIRCE conference CDs to that thank-you list. Between time in the car and time in the kitchen, these will get good use.
