Brave Writer Podcast: A Modern Miss Mason – Interview with Leah Boden
Today’s podcast is brand new! I am delighted to share Leah Boden with you. She’s a Brit (so we do spend a few moments chatting tea, of course!) and a Charlotte Mason enthusiast. Her work in the UK helps parents find their feet with living literature, nature study, and valuing your children as persons first (a Ms. Mason gold standard for education!).
Join me for a truly delightful, encouraging conversation. I know you’ll love it!

What’s the difference between being a Modern Miss Mason and being an originalist?
- Leah isn’t trying to reproduce a Victorian school in her house. The heritage there is incredible, but it’s not a script you have to follow verbatim – “It has to bring my family to life, I have to see my children as whole.”
- Charlotte Mason just lays out some guiding principles. It’s not the end all be all of what you do in your home.
- You have permission to find your freedom in the philosophy! Every home educator is also an educational reformer.
