On today’s episode, you will hear Paul talking with Lerato Majikfaerie about midwifery and natural birthing as a modern nomad. Lerato (LE-RRATO, Magic Farie) is a home birth midwife having practised remotely around South East Asia and a mother to a 13 year old daughter who was raised Unschooling and traveling around the world. Lerato is Very focused on natural living, and now based in Australia in the rainforest where they’re establishing an intentional community with a goal of creating a birthing house.
On today’s show, Paul interviews Pam Laricchia to dig even further into the unschooling movement. Pam is a longtime unschooling mom from Ontario, Canada. Her three children left school 14 years ago. She loves writing about what she has learned through their experience, and has been published in a number of magazines. She has also written three books on the topic, and she regularly shares her experiences and stories on The Exploring Unschooling Podcast. Since there is no manual on how to do this, the wisdom and advice that parents like Pam share with us is crucial for those of us who are pursuing this new and exciting means of education.
Today’s episode is going to be a little bit out of the ordinary. On this week’s show, you’re going to hear Becky speak with her good friend Cassandra Vore about a topic that both of them are very passionate about: radical unschooling. This a topic that can generate a lot of fear and confusion, so we’re hoping that this episode will clear a lot of things up for parents who are exploring these alternative schooling methods and teach those of you out there that are considering this that you can do things differently.
This episode is going to be all about education, kids, and how to live a life of freedom. We are going to work through the five different options you have for educating your children while living a nomadic lifestyle. There are so many options for schooling your children today that there is really no reason that education should stop your family from becoming location independent. We will likely be diving into each of these methods a little more in future episodes, but this is a great introductory episode for parents who are getting ready to make the leap into location independence.
