Episode 42 – The Emperor’s Club (2002)

This episode, it’s all about the three C’s of classical education: Caesar, Cicero and Cheating at trivia contests. We dig into The Emperor’s Club (2002), the oft-forgotten antithesis to Dead Poets Society about how Kevin Kline instills soon-to-be-famous teen actors with moral rigor among by talking about Rome. We discuss the value and shortcomings of teaching classical civilizations, our own pedagogical knacks and how much we’d charge to help an eccentric millionaire cheat at his own trivia contest. Answer: one bottle of nice-ish wine. Justice for Ĺ utruk-Nakhunte!
