Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we have the pleasure of Dr. Jennie Germann Molz joining us for a conversation. Dr. Molz is a Professor of Sociology at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester Massachusetts and is the author of the newly released book, The World Is Our Classroom: Extreme Parenting and the Rise of Worldschooling.   Drawing on interviews with parents and stories from the blogs they publish during their journeys, as well as her own experience traveling the world with her ten-year-old son, she takes us inside a fascinating life spent on trains, boats, and planes. She shows why many parents―disillusioned with standard public schooling―believe the world is a child’s best classroom. Rebelling against convention, these parents combine technology and travel to pursue a different version of the good life, one in which parents can work remotely as “digital nomads,” participate in like-minded communities online, and expose their children to the risks, opportunities, and life lessons that the world has to offer.  So grab a seat by the fire as we discuss how more and more families are choosing the world as their classroom! If you like what you hear and have enjoyed our show, please show your appreciation by subscribing to our Podcast and leaving us a review on your Podcast App of choice.We would love to hear from you so please email us with any comments or questions you have.Visit us and all of our content, including our blog, at www.thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.comAs always, let's Light A Fire They Can't Put OutThank you for listening!Show NotesDr. Molz' s book:The World is Our Classroom: Extreme Parenting and The Rise of Worldschooling The World Is Our Classroom (nyupress.org)or you can purchase on Amazon at:The World Is Our Classroom: Extreme Parenting and the Rise of Worldschooling (Critical Perspectives on Youth, 8): Molz, Jennie Germann: 9781479834075: Amazon.com: BooksYou can find Dr. Jennie Germann Molz at College of the Holy Cross | A highly selective, four year, undergraduate, Jesuit, liberal arts institution.

Hello and welcome back to the campfire!  Today it's just Nathan and I.  We woke up early on a Saturday morning to record with a cup of coffee.  We wanted to talk about how to fill your cup.  How do you recharge every day?  What do you do to keep your energy level high and your internal fire burning?  Today we discussed what we do and our routine for keeping our personal lives going strong in the midst of parenting and homeschooling.  To be great parents, especially homeschooling parents, you have to find ways to fill your cup everyday.  To be the best you can be you have to fill your cup first and eventually it will overflow to the rest of your family and into the rest of your life.  We hope you all enjoy the conversation and that you can find ways in your own life to keep your cup full.  Have a wonderful week.  If you like what you hear and have enjoyed our show, please show your appreciation by subscribing to our Podcast and leaving us a review on your Podcast App of choice.We would love to hear from you so please email us with any comments or questions you have.Visit us and all of our content, including our blog, at www.thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.comAs always, let's Light A Fire They Can't Put OutThank you for listening!

Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we have Haley and Chad from All In Ollies joining us. Their story begins with Chad having a brush with death while flying, which led them to decide to prioritize things in their life.  They took their children out of traditional school, eventually sold their home and most of their possessions, purchased an old school bus,  and hit the road to start truly living.  Their story shows us all how fragile life can be and that the best time to make a change and to put your family in the forefront of everything is today.  So grab a seat by the fire as we travel to Mexico to speak with the Ollingers about life's biggest lessons.If you like what you hear and have enjoyed our show, please show your appreciation by subscribing to our Podcast and leaving us a review on your Podcast App of choice.We would love to hear from you so please email us with any comments or questions you have.Visit us and all of our content, including our blog, at www.thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.comAs always, let's Light A Fire They Can't Put OutThank you for listening!Show NotesYou can find Haley and Chad on:Instagram @allinolliesYouTube- All In OlliesMystery at Blind Frog Ranch on the Discovery Channel

Hello and welcome back to the campfire! On today's episode Nathan and I discuss what "Normal" means.  As homeschoolers we are considered abnormal by most of society because we are still the minority when it comes to educating our children.  We discuss how the world wants to give us a definition of normal in regards to education, finances, lifestyle, and just about everything else in our lives.  Normal is whatever you decide it is and that does not have to look the same as the majority of others.  We prefer to be abnormal when it comes to most of these categories and homeschooling is just the beginning.  So if following the masses is not how you approach life, then grab a seat by the fire and join us in this conversation you will probably love!

Hello and welcome back to the campfire! We are so excited to share today's conversation. We have Dr. William Jackson, AKA The Nomadic Professor, joining us.  William has a BA in Asian Studies from Brigham Young University, a MA in Humanities from Pennsylvania State University, and a PhD in History from Syracuse University. He has been teaching as a university professor for almost a decade.William has chosen to forego the traditional labor-for-tenure career track. He believes the internet holds the key to new forms of education that will, over time, erode and ultimately destroy traditional students in a brick-and-mortar-box education; and to this he says: "Hooray!" He grew up overseas and loves history.  We speak about how he became a world nomad with his family in order to record history mini-lectures on-location that are available to students around the world. We talk about his family's worldschooling journey as well as the creation of his platform and what it has to offer students and adults. So take a seat by the fire as we travel to Idaho to discuss his story of re-imagining education.  If you like what you hear and have enjoyed our show, please show your appreciation by subscribing to our Podcast and leaving us a review on your Podcast App of choice.We would love to hear from you so please email us with any comments or questions you have.Visit us and all of our content, including our blog, at www.thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.comAs always, let's Light A Fire They Can't Put OutThank you for listening!Show NotesHomepage | The Nomadic Professor (teachable.com)*use coupon code HOME to receive 30% off any of the courses/Nomad Nation on The Nomadic Professor's websiteThe Nomadic Professor on: YouTube and Instagram
Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we are playing a special episode.  Several months ago we had the honor of being interviewed by Emily from the Untaming Podcast.  We had thought about doing a solo episode this week, and felt that our conversation with Emily really summarized everything that we wanted to speak on.  So, we reached out and asked if we could use her audio.  She was kind enough to let us use it and share it with all of you.  So grab a seat by the fire as we discuss our path, our thoughts on education, and what matters most in life!
