Thomas Fleming Interviewed By Dissident Mama

Yesterday evening (Thursday, April Fools Day) I rushed home from a long day of pub-crawling in Southern Wisconsin to keep my promised appointment with "Dissident Mama," a blogger and podcaster I met last Fall in Charleston.  She was kind enough to edit and post this interview this morning.

Dissident Mama, episode 33 – Dr. Thomas Fleming

If you enjoy it, I hope you will inform the good lady and visit her site.

    I’m glad I caught this just before the three and a half hour internment in the mechanical jacobin.

    This was enjoyable even excellent. The only two things I have read or listened to today on Good Friday —Tom Flemings interview with a “dissident mama” and Archbishop Vigano’s recent meditation on the passion of Christ. I know these may seem like disparate subjects but really not at all. And more than enough to consider for one “Good” day. Thank you to both.

    It was a fast-moving and excellent show. I’ve enjoyed Rebecca’s work since her occasional pieces began showing up on the Abbeville website. I think Dr Fleming gave a good advertisement for himself and his work, and I made sure to comment on the DM site and remind Rebecca’s regular listeners about the summer program. I think there’s got to be at least a few more homeschooling types who might have been a little more steered in the classics direction today.

    Excellent! I must be on the same wavelength as Mr. Reavis, as I too enjoyed Archbishop Vigano’s reflections in addition to this wide-ranging interview with our fearless leader! Both of these gentlemen share a clear-headed view of the current state of our world.
