Episodes 67 & 68: We’re Moving. Here’s Why

In episode 67, we talk about our decision to move to Tulsa, Oklahoma. From practical things like needing more room in the home and on the farm to the spiritual necessity of being closer to Mass. 

In episode 68, we talk about culture, the medieval village, the virtues of the intellect, science and First Principles, and the intelligence of farmers.

“But what more oft in Nations grown corrupt,

And by thir vices brought to servitude,

Than to love Bondage more than Liberty,

Bondage with ease than strenuous liberty.”
