Emerson: America's Great Poet & Philosopher

I've always loved Ralph Waldo Emerson but I've only read a few of the things he wrote. Thanks for letting me catch up on my Emerson! Hearing his words are always edifying for the soul. I loved the first podcasts and the narration was of high quality.

Great Podcast from a Great Company

Learn Out Loud consistently puts out high quality podcasts and free audiobooks and this is definitely on par. Emerson is a must and this is a fantastic way to discover some of his work. Thanks again for putting such awesome content on the web!

the irony of it all

I have been ever so slowly reading Nature, but I never have time because of school. I was just thinking it would be great to listen to Emerson outloud...
