Re: "The Teaching Company"...
Has anyone had experience with the series of college-level lectures produced by "The Teaching Company"?

They cover a whole range of subjects; from History to Philosophy, Science, Religion, etc.

I have purchased many of these series of lectures, and I have a question for anyone else who may have experienced them:

Do you notice a certain consistent bias in their Historical and Religious lectures? If so, what? I have my own view on this, but I would first like to hear what others think.

:D

1. I heard an audio copy of their title on the Nag Hammadi texts.
It was good. Haven't read much of their other things, sorry.

2. I VERY much enjoyed the series on Ancient Egypt by Bob Brier.
Listened to it twice, as a matter of fact.

Didn't detect any sort of bias in the lectures.

I have mostly science and literature , and I am (mostly) very satisfied

I would be interested in what bias you see in the History lectures
