#44: Dante in the Homeschool: An Interview with Erin Deschene

Welcome to Season 4 of The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom. This season we are focusing our efforts on understanding the moral imagination in relationship to classical education with our spine text of Tending the Heart of Virtue by Vigen Guroian and, of course, Norms and Nobility by David Hicks.

This was an exciting episode for me, Ashley, personally. I love this amazing guest, mostly because we can really dig into the classical tradition and challenge each other with our differing knowledge bases. I hope that you enjoy this interview as much as I did. Erin makes me laugh and brings my heart to Jesus in every conversation. She is sharing her love of Dante with us, so put your ear buds in and get ready to laugh. Side note: It was Melrose Place…not 90210…LOL … that I was thinking of!
