Interviewed on Ownstream!

  • What about friends? How can you cultivate a social circle or learn to deal with other people while on the move?
  • What about college? Does this style of education prepare you for university?
  • How will my son/daughter get a job if they aren’t formally educated?

Last week, I had the opportunity to chat it up with Stephen and Theresa, the minds behind Ownstream.

What a blast! This was absolutely one of the most fun interviews I’ve been invited to. If you haven’t heard of their podcast series already, get on it. They do a fabulous job of asking in-depth questions that go above and beyond to showcase new ideas. We hit all the main points about socialization and the basics of life as a worldschooled kid, with a more in depth look at school schedules, the benefits of traveling young, and how worldschooling has affected who I’ve become as an adult. Of course, dork that I am, there may have been a little goofing off along the way as well.

Want to hear what my voice sounds like in real life? Interested in learning more about worldschooling? Want to know which books I think you should read? (just kidding, I totally blanked there)

Check it out here:

And, uh, books I actually think you should read:

– Bird by Bird, Anne Lamott

– Neverwhere, Neil Gehman

– Magicians, Lev Grossman

– Any Charles Dickens book, ever.

– Walden, Thoreau

– Pale Blue Dot, Carl Sagan

– Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, Neil deGrasse Tyson

– The Soul of an Octopus

Feel free to take this as an opportunity to give me book recommendations. ;)
