Love to Learn
I am a 8yr homeschool CC mom. I have directed 6 years. I have loved being reminded of where we were and where we are going in CC. The series on what’s next is perfect . I would have loved these as I was moving up. Keep doing it! I can not wait until you get to Challenge IV.
I’m a podcast addicted - love that I can be equipped to direct and homeschool while doing dishes or working or driving. Thank you for your thoughtful information to help us!!
Audio inconsistencies but great content
The audio on several of the book discussions was seriously lacking in volume consistency. I had to turn it way up and o hear one speaker and then way down on the hosts. Investing in some good microphones would go a long way in the quality of this podcast.
