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

    EP 215: Fare of the Free Man Child (A Tony Galloway Ting)

    EP 215: Fare of the Free Man Child (A Tony Galloway Ting)

    In collaboration with Atlanta-based Self-Directed Education profession and facilitator, Anthony “Tony” Galloway, Jr, we are so hyped to broadcast the premiere episode of Fare of the Free Man Child!
    Tony is one of our Presence Counselors here at Raising Free People Network and the founder, director and facilitator of The Heartwood School, a local Agile Learning Center. Throughout this series, Tony reflects on his own self-directed journey and his views on adulting and adulthood as he approaches his 30’s. Tune in to hear him riff on finances, politics, mental health, race, schooling, unschooling, manhood, and masculinity.
    “I was raised as an academic and baptized in the way of the scientific method. There were many creative outlets I participated in as a kid but they were just fun things to do on the side. Things like music and art were extracurriculars and hobbies to make me a well-rounded applicant but they were never a priority”. - Anthony Galloway, Jr
    In this episode, Tony talks about the struggles that we might face when trying to apply certain Self-Directed practices to our lives, about how exhausting it becomes to compare ourselves and our children's processes, the external pressure full of expectations, and preparations that pull us away from the present, missing the essentials. He also shares the importance of prioritizing the fulfillment of personal challenges while taking care of responsibilities.

    Ep 212: Food, Play, & Mindfulness with Karen M. Ricks

    Season 6 of Fare of the Free Child Podcast begins today, and we are so excited!! This season we’ve slowed down our listening process so that every topic can get three full episodes of conversation and connection. The first part is an invitation to deepen our perspective on a relevant topic, the second part we’ll be listening to community feedback about that topic, and the third episode will be a recap or replay from a live, group meetup (we call those feel trips), to bring our knowledge and questions together real-time. Want to make sure you don’t miss feel trip invites? Join our podcast village. On today’s episode, Karen M. Ricks of Our Kitchen Classroom, world traveler, life learner, mother, wife, chef, entrepreneur will be joining us to talk about joy, food, travelling, languages, Montessori ways, and her special take on worldschooling. 
    Food Joy
    We talk about boundaries, consent, relationship-building, and the importance of partnership between parents and children. Karen explains the way food can work as a medium through which we have a chance to connect through multi-sensory experiences, for example, the process of including the children in preparing meals. We talk about sense memory and how it is tied to a deeper personal involvement, and how this makes food a wonderful way to notice everyday learning.
    Montessori Ways  (The world is our classroom)
    Karen speaks about her experience running a Montessori school in Japan, about how this process exposed some of the drastic pedagogical differences between cultures, and the level of resistance that can live within us when it comes to trying a less schoolish approach to learning anything, including a new language. 
    We chat about the cultivation of language as a tool that enhances communication, a tool to connect with the otherness, to share ideas and concepts, and to expand the possibilities for the richness of learning from every experience, person, and place.
    Building upon the Curiosity
    Karen shares the joy that food has given her by seeing culinary education as a cultural exchange, and a way of connecting with families and communities. With her project, Our Kitchen Classroom, Karen shares a different way of learning through the experience of food.

Dignity

This podcast is a stand for the inherent dignity of children, parents and all people. You must listen. It’s like water to the thirsty.

Absolutely beautiful

This podcast is full of so much goodness! Trusting your children, trusting yourself as a parent and as a person to know what’s best for your family. I’m deep in the process of deschooling and about to embark on an unschooling lifestyle, and listening to Akilah and her guests has been so encouraging and their insight has been so enlightening and refreshing. Love it all! Thank you 💕
