The life of the mind can be intimidating, especially if it's been awhile since you were in school. Yet, intellectual leisure is crucial to the art of being human. In fact, our intellect is what makes us most like God. This week, Jimmy sits down with Dr. Ryan Hanning to discuss how important it is to engage our minds and pursue the truth, especially in a culture marked by isolation and technocracy.
