Very well done, looking forward to more.
My first encoutner with Blake Bole's work but I'm looking forward to more. Very insightful.
Interesting and informative
I've been excited to learn about some alternative education options after finding Blake through another website. The podcasts so far have been great and have led me home to do more research after each one. Thanks for this opportnity to learn about "Real Education" during my morning commute. I look forward to each one.
This podcast is just fantastic. I've been reading about Blake for a while now and have read, and am in the process of reading more of, his books. As a stay at home dad recently moving from homeschooling to unschooling, I am finding this invaluable. It's reinforcing so many ideas I've had and giving me ideas to expand upon what we're doing. My 13 year old really enjoyed the interview with Carsie Blanton. It's given her a desire to attend the Not Back to School Camp and we'll probably make that happen next year. Blake, if you read this, I'd love to hear Grace Llewelyn on the podcast. Oh and thank you for all you do!
