Quintilian: The Latin Teacher Podcast is a long-form interview program that showcases people who have done interesting, important, and innovative work related to the field of classical studies. We have profiled middle school teachers, high school teachers, and university professors. We have done episodes on the National Latin Exam, the American Academy in Rome, Latin pedagogy, educational technology, the Advanced Placement Latin Exam, and community outreach. We have featured a novelist, a poet, a translator, an archaeologist, a high school principal, a textbook designer, a Vatican linguist, a filmmaker, and a musician. Quintilian endeavors to represent a wide variety of perspectives and experiences, and the program would not be possible without the distinguished guests who are willing to share their personal stories with the audience.
