This episode is the first of a two-part series.  In the first, Dr. Burnett and I spoke about the ideas she brought to the Brittain program, her views on the social responsibility of our teaching, and why the Brittain Fellowship is extraordinary and unique. If you have questions you’d like me to ask in the second part, please post a comment!
