StarWarsKristy ,

Great Homeschooling Podcast

These two ladies are awesome! Great down to earth homeschooling advice.

Dahmdr ,

Love their down to earth and genuine conversation!

I am not a longhauler (yet) but have found this podcast so refreshing! Very practical, realistic discussion that allows for nuance and acknowledges that we as parents will also grow and change over time along with our kids.

EmDing12345 ,

Great insights for long-haulers like me

I have thoroughly enjoyed this podcast, so far, and I look forward to future episodes. I have been waiting for a podcast to come along that would encourage and uplift me in these years of homeschooling, and I believe I have found that in GOAT Homeschool. Thanks, ladies, for your heart and your insight!
