SS #54: Gainsaying Sayers

In today’s episode, Mystie, Pam, and Brandy finish up their conversation about Dorothy Sayers’ essay, The Lost Tools of Learning, which began in Episode 49.

SS #53: You’ve Got a Friend in Me

In today’s episode, Mystie and Brandy use part of CS Lewis’ book The Four Loves to discuss friendship – how Lewis defines it, if we womenfolk are capable of it, and how it’s different from other things like companionship and affection. We wrap up by applying this to … yes! … book clubs. We think you’ll love this. Thank you to our sponsor: This episode is sponsored by Scholé Sisters Spring Training Sessions! If you are listening to this episode … Read More

Have you joined the Sistership yet? On our new-and-improved Sistership platform we not only have meaty and humorous conversation, … Read More

SS #48: Someone Stole My Socrates

This episode, Brandy and Mystie discuss the Socratic Method. Is it really classical? Is it progressive? Does it have anything to do with Socrates? Has he been kidnapped and, if so, it is right to hunt him down and steal him back?? This conversation was great fun for us. We think you’ll enjoy it, too! Thank you to our sponsor: This episode is sponsored by the Scholé Sisters newsletter! I know what you’re thinking: why in the world is our … Read More
