Fare of the Free Child is a biweekly podcast that aims to centralize black and brown people’s voices and experiences in discussions about unconventional parenting. With a particular interest in the self-directed education (aka unschooling) movement, Akilah S. Richards and special guest co-hosts will discuss the fears and the fares (costs) of raising liberated children of color in a world that tends to diminish, dehumanize, and disappear them.

Unique and Deep, Y'all!

There is nothing like this on any other podcast! Akilah, you are creating community around something so fundamental (whoops, just quoted Trepan M's website) that anyone will learn something, but it is from such a fresh perspective that many of us "outcasts" will hear and heed your call. Thank you for this gift!

Unschooling provides liberation

Unschooling is a way to teach our children to love themselves and always love learning. This podcast touches my heart. One of my daughters learned how to read at 2 years old and her sister at 3. My 2 year old taught herself, but I made her environment a place where learning is fun and encouraged. Unforunately now that both of my children are school age I haven't allowed them to learn the same way they had previously. I changed my homeschool into a traditional school at home. I've learn that this isn't best for my motivated educated daughters. As a result, I sought Akilah's podcast after visiting her blog. I'm also a blogger, but Akilah had a confidence in her schooling abilities that I deeply admired. I believe that freedom is essential to embracing self so I thank her for answering her calling to share her community of "self directed learners." Thank you Akilah for brightening my horizons.

A True Gem
