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. In fact, if you haven’t listened to Episode 49, you really should do that first. Anyhow, in this episode the Scholé Sisters discuss and debate the trivium portion of the essay. It’s great fun you won’t want to miss.
