HH: Every week at this time, I talk with a member of the Hillsdale team, whether it’s Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College, or Matt Spalding. Dr. Spalding runs the Kirby Center in the shadow of the Capitol, and Dr. Spalding joins me this morning. But I’m seriously freaked out, Matt, good morning, how are you?
HH: That music means the Hillsdale Dialogue is upon us. Once a week for an hour, I sit down with one of the key members of the Hillsdale College faculty and staff, usually Dr. Larry Arnn, the president of Hillsdale College. And we are lucky that it is indeed Dr. Arnn in the house today. Tomorrow is my annual Groundhog Day show, so he’s agreed to come in early and surprise all of our Thursday people with this. And it’s all things Hillsdale at www.hillsdale.edu. All of our previous conversations are collected at www.hughforhillsdale.com. You can subscribe to Imprimis, the free speech digest, at www.hillsdale.edu. And you can indeed see all the Constitution courses, the Churchill courses, the course on progressivism. It’s all at www.hillsdale.edu. But today, we’re going to talk about the State of the Union, and we’re going to talk about the Constitution. Dr. Arnn, good morning and thank you for coming in a day early.
HH: I am joined by Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College. And now more than ever, you need to go and, to www.hillsdale.edu, subscribe to Imprimis, the speech digest, which is for free, and then watch the Constitution course, and watch the course on Winston Churchill, because when Gary Oldman steps up to accept the Oscar, having won the Golden Globe and the Screen Actors Guild for his portrayal of Churchill, you will appreciate then just the work of art that he has accomplished. Dr. Arnn, aren’t you glad that Oldman has gone two for two on the bigs thus far?
HH: That music means it is the last radio hour of the week. That means it is time for the Hillsdale Dialogue. Once a week, I sit down with one of the esteemed members of the faculty or staff of Hillsdale College in Michigan, and we talk about the issues that matter the most, that have always mattered the most in Western Civilization. Often, it is Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College. Today, however, it is Dr. Matthew Spalding. He is the director of Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center. You can read everything about Hillsdale at www.hillsdale.edu. Just go there, and you’ll get every free online course on the Constitution, on the progressive movement, on Winston Churchill, on many wonderful things. You can hear every conversation I have conducted with a Hillsdale colleague since 2013 all collected at www.hughforhillsdale.com. And you can subscribe for free to the speech digest, Imprimis, which will arrive in your mailbox monthly as it does in the mailboxes of more than two million Americans to edify and enlighten. You can do all of that at www.hillsdale.edu. And you can also get a college application, because that’s where you want your son or daughter to go. Matthew Spalding, welcome, it’s great to have you.
HH: That music means it is time for the Hillsdale Dialogue. www.hughforhillsdale.com connects you with every Hillsdale Dialogue we have conducted back to 2013. All things Hillsdale are collected at www.hillsdale.edu, including your application to attend the college, your opportunity to sign up for free to Imprimis, the monthly speech digest of Hillsdale College, which is absolutely free and comes into your mailbox, and all of the online courses, some of which are taught by my guest, Larry Arnn, the president of Hillsdale College. Dr. Larry Arnn usually is my guest. Sometimes, one of his colleagues on the faculty or staff joins me. He is back this week. Dr. Arnn, good morning to you.
