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.

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.
