Portable Treasure with Abigail Palmer

AMDG.  We live in unprecedented times—or do we?  Can a classics degree set you back in the job hunt? What do you do when primary sources seem daunting?  Longtime friend of Kolbe Academy Abigail Palmer joins Bonnie and Steven to talk about these big questions and more.  She describes how lack of familiarity with history leads to fear and how being fearful leads to being malleable, she explains how studying antiquity gives perspective, and she highlights overlaps between Latin and classics on one hand and coding and tech innovation on the other.
