April Episode of A Place at the Table Launched

By , April 18, 2019

Earlier this week I posted the April episode of A Place at the Table, the monthly family roundtable discussion we record and distribute to our Patreon patrons.

We’re pretty happy about this month’s episode. We discussed Aly’s homeschooling experience and analyzed it from the luxurious position of hindsight. We reviewed the history of it, sought her opinion and feelings on the process, and assessed the outcome.

I’ve been wanting to do that for a long time. Education is one of our most prized possessions and activities; we took her high school education seriously, and waited breathlessly for her, and time’s, judgment of its success.

If you’re a longtime reader of the blog, you know I used to think and talk a lot about homeschooling, particularly unschooling. I still think about it a lot, I just don’t find as much opportunity to write about it now that Aly’s a few years out of formal education. I enjoyed revisiting the experience with Aly and Michelle.

The episode, in MP3 form, runs just over 30 minutes. Patreon provides a fund-raising platform for artists, either through monthly prescriptions or per-creation payments. The latter is our preference.

To accompany the latest episode, I posted a short essay on my kindergarten experience as this month’s offering for our Homestead Patrons, the lower contribution-level.

Fortuitously, this release coincides somewhat with a recent interview I had with the ladies over at Hello Homestead. I participated in their article, What You Should Know About Off-The-Grid Parenting, We discussed homeschooling among other parenting topics.
