Podcast: The Complete Season Three

Brave Writer Season Three Podcasts

Season 3 of the Brave Writer podcast surpassed even my expectations! In my interviews with friends, educators, and even my wonderful mom, we explored the brave shifts that helps us to be better parents, better homeschoolers, and better people.

Each week features someone who has had an impact on how I love and learn. These guests are my personal heroes as well as skilled practitioners I’ve long admired. We discussed the culture of homeschooling and how its changed over the last four decades, we looked at the impact of cancer and the death of a child on our ability to home educate, we talked about education reform and how to create a homeschool space that is filled with light and coziness, and I got to talk to one of our Brave Writer instructors as well as one of our Homeschool Alliance coaches (and so much more).

The season kicked off with Susan Wise Bauer and wrapped up with Karen O’Connor (my dear mom). Listen, bring tissues (some of these interviews are pretty poignant), and implement the practical ideas that may help you re-shape your homeschool into something gorgeous and personal.
