I wish there were more podcasts about homeschooling. I’d also enjoy hearing some on education in general and also on education reform.
If I had the time I’d look into starting my own podcasts. I don’t have the time.
I don’t quite know what is involved with podcasting. I have heard some people say that it is so hard, you have to spend a lot of money, etc. But I have also heard that it is so easy and so inexpensive to do that teenagers are doing podcasts with their random thoughts just for the fun of it.
I used to love to listen to the podcasts on HomeSchoolTalkRadio. However they have not issued one of their free talk radio shows for a number of months now. I don’t know what is going on. I checked their site last week and there was no explanation given for the lapse. I hope they resume broadcasting soon. Go here to listen to archived radio shows.
I also enjoyed listening to Homeschool Habitat. There has not been a new release since November 2005. Go here to listen to past recordings.
Last night while doing book sorting and organizing in our library I listened to more podcasts from Education 911. These are recorded by a long-time teacher and they are about the call for education reform. The host talks of problems in the public school system. Go here to find the list of archived podcasts.
Last night I found short podcasts by David and Shirley Quine under the podcast name “Homeschool Helps”. They are a married couple who have homeschooled their seven children, six of whom are finished with homeschool high school at this point. They are Christian. These seem to be a combination of home recording spliced in with recordings from homeschooling conferences. Go here if you want to listen to one of the many recordings they have made.
Listening to these podcasts is just like listening to a lecture at a conferene, but these are free and done in the privacy of your own home.
