How can we love again? | VIRTUE Podcast with Andrew Zwerneman of Cana Academy

In this inaugural episode of the VIRTUE Podcast, brought to you by the Great Hearts Institute, Dr. Robert L. Jackson talks to Andrew Zwerneman of Cana Academy—Master Teacher, advocate for classical education, and beautiful soul—about his new book, “The Life We Live Together.” Rob and Andrew discuss the decades-long collapse of love for our common heritage and common life, and their ongoing work to rekindle the classical liberal arts in our schools and lives.
