    Love Dr.Arn
    Were it not for Dr. Arn this would be a swipe and delete. What’s with “Morning Glory America and Bonjour Hi Canada?” And tell Scott Bertram to send his resume and tapes to a third rate game show that needs an announcer. If he talks like that all the time I pity the people that are within earshot. I think in the radio business they call that a “puker”. Anyway, I could listen to Dr. Arn for hours. Thanks for taking the time and Hugh, thanks for doing the Hillsdale Hour. I’ve listened to them all.
  • AnthonyVPGH
    While it could use some polishing in terms of the organization within the episodes, it remains extremely insightful and informative. Highly recommended.

    Kooky, full-on propaganda
    There’s a complete absence of factual accuracy in the episodes I listened to. Is Hillsdale really a college? I feel bad for students who think they’d be getting a real education there.

    I have learned so much from these podcasts. Hillsdale College, specifically Larry Arm, in a league of their own, a wealth of knowledge.

    The way to 5
    More Arnn, less Hewitt

    I learn from Larry Arnn
    Dear Mr Hewitt, I am 76 years old and have listened for about a year. Thank you for your generosity in allowing your radio show to be a voice for Dr Arnn. In his role as teacher, I learn much new information that I can apply to my own life situations. May I ask that you try to refrain from interrupting him during your podcasts? I long to hear his thoughts and wisdom since I apply this information to my life situations. Thank you

    Unrevised history at its finest!
    A most excellent series.

    Churchill’s History of the English Speaking People
    I read the 4 volumes and they are excellent . The British have a very interesting history. Keep reviewing Churchill’s books.
  • Chip Wahlenmeier
    Excellent podcast, but…
    This is a highly informative podcast that is fascinating. However, the host needs to do a better job of either prepping questions and controlling the conversation or quit rudely interrupting Dr. Arnn.
  • Bmac1746
    Hugh and Dr Arn do a great job of getting to the essence of the topic and are very informative. I have learned that I have much to learn.

    Hillsdale College is a gift!

    Lose Hewitt
    Hewitt is an arrogant braggart that darkens the light of his Hillsdale guests. They need to lose their connection to Hewitt. He is insufferably pretentious and petty.

    Hillsdale Dialogues
    I believe this is one of the greatest and most important shows ever broadcast. I encourage everyone to listen to this amazing show.
  • shawnloy
    Best weekly podcast.
    A conversation about the great historic thinkers and the books they wrote. Starts with Aristotle’s Ethics and includes the Bible, church fathers, Shakespeare, et cetera.
  • Batchelor Fan
    Excellent History and Reading Suggestions
    Everyone should listen and learn. The Left is trying to centralize power in the executive branch at the Federal level. That is how the French Revolution failed. Everyone has to fear God and ask for his help. Then get involved to govern ourselves locally.
  • Ladydidi57
    Why is there only 5 podcasts showing and you can’t go further back anymore. That stinks!
    Why all of sudden only 5 podcasts are available??? For those who are working on binging listening as Hugh always recommends we can't anymore. Please fix this on your end and not limit to last 5 on podcasts and pod bean!!!!!
  • teamsmooth
    Love Hillsdale’s commitment to feeding our minds and promoting the good. I am Always enlightened, on some level, after hearing a podcast. Thank you for for providing this path for my growth.

    Thank you to Hugh and Dr. Arnn for this fabulous weekly comprehensive stroll through history. My husband, our ten year old and I look forward to each episode! Hearing these discussions and learning about Hillsdale has been a game changer for my family. We are very much looking forward to the young readers edition of Land of Hope. We’ve learned so much from the first edition and we know our daughter will gain as much as we have from the version for younger readers.
  • largef
    Very enlightening!!!
  • Publius512
    Very insightful…when the guests are allowed to finish their thoughts
    Wonderful series about evergreen subjects pertaining to American history, politics, and philosophy, as well as various aspects of world history (ancient Greece, Rome, Judeo-Christian tradition, Winston Churchill, etc). Would be an even better series if Hugh Hewitt didn’t interrupt Dr. Arnn and the other guests as frequently as he does.
  • PatriotNC
    This is what a college education should be
    I really enjoy the critical discussion of the history of this country and what shaped it.
    Best Podcast about Western Civilization
    I have been listening to this podcast on other platforms for years. It is the best podcast on Wester Civilization that I have ever listened to. Dr. Arn and the staff of Hillsdale are engaging and interesting. Hugh Hewitt asks tons of really interesting questions.
  • Nesorneb
    Patriotic Discussion
    Conservative discussion that helps to make sense of our present and its implications for our future by remaining aware of our past.
  • J_Everett
    One of the best
    These are some of the best hours on radio today. It would be nice if they were posted in a timelier fashion here. But, what do I know. I enjoy listening while I drive my garbage truck route.

    Beauty in our mist!
    Wonderful listening beginning to end.
  • Mr.Mister Man
    Great podcast, late publishing
    Amazing in-depth intellectual podcast, but the publishing schedule is atrocious, and sometimes have to wait a month o for the newest podcast. I’d give it s higher rating, but the lateness of the podcast is extremely annoying
  • Drchainsaw77
    Dr. Arnn gets five stars. The podcast, not quite as much.
    Dr. Larry Arnn is some thing of a national treasure, and is naturally worthy of a five star rating. But Hewitt won’t shut up, won’t stop interrupting, sounds like he’s playing with a Bic lighter half the time, the music is atrocious, and the podcast always drops months late.
  • Ric Industrial Designer

    Great. Needs loaded more regularly.
  • gene.bramblett
    Had my fill of Hugh. Can’t stand any more. Get a new host and I’d try it again but not as long as Hugh stays.
  • Ilm4gk
    I truly like the podcast, but I am not interested on hearing your views on Iowa and the state of the union address on April 22!
  • Rks6753
    Not seem like episodes get added on a regular basis as they were in the past.
  • Honest check
    Hugh Hewitt
    Hugh Hewitt makes a living by appealing to conservatives and advocating for captalism. Hugh is disingenuous. He admitted to voting for Bernie Sanders in VA primary. Hugh is a registered Democrat and voted for a Socialist.

    Education and American Greatness
    The volume of these podcasts is much too low to hear. Please correct.
  • Brother Happy
    Great, but. . .
    It is a very good podcast with excellent content and insightful commentary with a good dose of humor relating to political literary and historical issues past and present. My biggest frustration is that the podcast is often delayed. The program might be aired one week but will not be posted to that server for downloading until 2-8 weeks later.
  • RC Lamb
    Love Hillsdale
    Oh how I wish I could return to my youth as a young man so that I might have a chance to be a student of Hillsdale. What a wonderful learning experience, Thank you!
  • Whitest kid ya know
    Wonderful but latent
    This is a great podcast for those curious about what “good” actually means. As the host and his guests go through many classic works, you will learn what great men thought about the meaning of “good.” Additionally, they will comment on “current” events which provides a unique perspective outside of the mainstream media. The reason “current” is in quotation marks is because this show is notoriously late in providing the podcasts. There will be times where the newest podcast to come out is about events that happened 6 weeks ago. But outside of that inconvenience, this is a really great podcast.

    Thank you
    Thank you for the education!

    Hillsdale Podcast Updates
    I love listening to Huge Hewitt and Dr. Arnn. So informative from a true and honest conservative American views.. Update: where are you? Has the last hour of Friday's podcast been cancelled?

    Gives peace to politics
    I’ve listened to all the posted episodes and have learned so much about the great books of history, Churchill, and modern politics. Listening through the tumultuous 2016 Republican primary and general election gave me great peace as the hosts look at everything through a historical perspective. Larry Arrn and Hugh Hewitt were “in Switzerland” on this podcast during the election. Learning about contentious elections and passions of the past help put everything in perspective. Learning about the true function of the Presidency and why it must be a unitary executive, the duties of Congress, the true role of the judiciary, it’s all so insightful. There is always something fascinating and worthwhile. I could go to the beginning and listen straight through again. I was so sad when Trump told Hugh Hewitt his audience was “small” during the debate. It was crushing! But Hugh took his “Trump tattoo” well and did not make himself the center of the story. I was so hurt on his behalf but sadly thought his audience probably IS small compared to the other big talk radio shows. It shouldn’t be. If everyone listened to the Hillsdale dialogues we would be much better off as a nation. It might help calm our political passions and help us focus on the fundamental issues. So subscribe and learn again about the great books and enjoy the occasional forays into current events.
  • LWPOmaha
    Really great info and clear thinking
    one of the best discussions out there. a must have for everyone's podcast list!

    Valley Forge & Washington’s other battles
    Hugh, Larry - I haven’t listened to all of the dialogues but I want to hear both of you on the battles leading up to and Valley Forge. If you can recommend some books on the subject that’d be appreciated. What was the relationship between Adams and Washington? Did John really see George as only being picked for commander in chief because of his height? Thanks

    Fantastic Podcast, Awful episode updates
    I really love this podcast but I absolutely despise the updating of new episodes. As an example, today 1/4/19 just received two “new episodes” from 12/07 & 12/14. This happens all the time, by the time they show up, they are irrelevant. You guys need to up your game, thus is ridiculous. Most podcasts I listen to show up within an hour of the live show ending. Please do something!
