Hear my interview with an African Cardinal who took part in conclave which chose Pope Benedict XVI

In what is probably the first-ever in-studio interview - in Delaware - with a cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, you can hear my radio interview with the first and only cardinal from Cameroon, Christian Cardinal Tumi. (Note that this interview, from the "Delaware News at Noon" Wednesday, is DIFFERENT from the video interview we posted, and covers some different issues. It's interesting that some Cameroonian / African websites have already linked to my video interview!)

People of Cameroonian heritage live in Delaware, and many attend Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton church in Bear. Some of them are related to the cardinal. Hence, the cardinal's visit.

Full disclosure: I attend Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton parish and I thank its pastor, Father Roger DiBuo, for helping me set up this interview.

I heard this live at noon, and it was one of the best interviews I've heard. Was this a surprise, or was it a long negotiated process? Either way, it was a welcome surprise. I'd recommend all take the time to listen.. On air, it was about 25 minutes....

I brought up the idea with Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton's pastor, Father Roger, about two or three weeks previous.

Thanks for the compliment.
