A Truly Brilliant Podcast on Rhetoric

Mary Hedengren's insights on the people, concepts, and history of rhetoric are truly outstanding. Rhetoric has been unjustly a pejorative for far too long, and Hedengren's work demystifies it for a modern audience. In addition to Classical Greek and Roman figures and ideas, this podcast offers global insights, such as Chinese rhetoric and Sor Juana (an incredible female rhetor from Mexico that I learned about from this very podcast). This podcast is accessible enough for new audiences yet rigorous enough for scholars in the field. Hedengren even offers fun narrative episodes around Halloween. This is a truly exceptional podcast that I've recommended to my peers (and even required of my students).

thank you so much

This is a delightful series, and it's pitched beautifully for students -- I'm really grateful to Mary and co. for taking this on!

a MUST for any student of rhetoric (all of us)
