Last year they took the entire show on the road for a year as they traveled the world as a family. Get the scoop on the best and worst parts of word-schooling on this episode of the podcast.

  • Amy says:

    Another great episode! I really love eavesdropping on these conversations between friends! I would also love to hear from some unschoolers!

    • Pam Barnhill says:

      Amy have you seen this one? https://pambarnhill.com/unschooling/ It is not an HSP episode but a conversation I had with Sue Elvis about unschooling. I would love to have you suggest a favorite unschooler or two for us to contact. Great idea!

      • Amy says:

        I have seen/heard that one, and really enjoyed it. Sue Elvis is so inspiring to me. Other unschoolers that I have learned from are Aadel Bussinger from These Temporary Tents and Suzie Andres (author of Homeschooling with Gentleness and A Little Way of Homeschooling). Thanks!

        • Amy says:

          Also Joan Otto from Unschool Rules!

  • Cassie says:

    I love listening to these. Your podcast is one of the ones I have on rotation for making my household duties so much more enjoyable! Thank you!

  • Kristi Mikkelsen says:

    I really enjoyed last year’s podcast season, but I am LOVING this season. I feel like there are more conversations centered around each guest’s strengths versus a series of canned questions. It’s always interesting, but I feel like I’ve learned more listening to the last two episodes. Always great work, though!

    • Pam Barnhill says:

      Hopefully that means I am growing as an interviewer? Or I could attribute it to my awesome new podcast manager, Mary, who is helping with research and questions? At any rate, I am glad that you are enjoying the season. It is always a delicate balance between the people who want to hear everyone’s different answers to the regular questions and keeping it fresh with the other information for those who like more variety. We are striving to find the sweet spot (and still stay within the 30 minute window!). Thanks for listening and leaving a comment.

  • Amber says:

    I think it was this podcast that talked about a timeline. Did you ever find out what Timeline app she was using? I would love to try it out

    • Pam Barnhill says:

      Yes, the link to the Timeline Builder App is right up there in the show notes.

  • I recently came across this podcast and I’m trying to catch up! We are interested in taking a trip around the world. What is the travel agency Tsh used for her airfares?

    Thank you!
