Fare of the Free Child podcast focuses on Black people, Indigenouse people, and People of Color (BIPOC) families who practice unschooling and other forms of Self-Directed, decolonized living and learning. Each weekly episode examines a particular way that we’ve accepted coercive, emotionally and physically damaging habits as a normal part of adult-child relationships. With a focus on deschooling one’s self, decolonizing education, and exploring radical self-expression, this podcast both challenges and informs us to push past coercion and fear, and walk toward a model for living with children that centers community, addresses social justice issues, and believes in trusting and respecting children and ourselves. #BIPOCinSDE #raisingfreepeople

Important, beautiful, and brilliant. Recommending to everybody

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a while, and it has really been part of my foundation, growing into my authentic self. Raising and unschooling 2 children of color, and being white passing myself, I had/have a lot to learn. This podcast is a space where I can feel triggered, sit with it, reflect, and come out on the other side with a new perspective. Listening has made me a more gentle parent, it’s made me a deeper listener, and it’s part of the many reasons I continue the journey of decolonizing my thoughts. I’ve cried while listening, both happy and sad tears. I’ve had deep conversations with my partner and my friends about episodes that lingered in my mind for weeks if not months.

I feel nothing but gratitude for this podcast and for all the work Akilah does... really just thankful for her existence.
