Let’s Talk Homeschool is a podcast hosted by Davis and Rachael Carman. They have been homeschooling their seven kids since 1996. As of 2022, all seven have graduated from their family homeschool and are in college or have already graduated. IOW, by God's grace, this adventure of a lifetime — called home education — has been very good for their family. They believe if there was ever a time to homeschool, it is now!

Much Needed Wisdom
I am so thankful that Rachel and Davis are taking the time to make a podcast. I really enjoy gleaning wisdom from godly homeschooling parents who have been through so many things I am experiencing now. This is a great show for veteran homeschoolers and newcomers alike.
Such BOLd truths!
I have been enjoying this podcast from Episode 1, and I keep sharing episodes with others! The “don’t stop at high school part 1,” is really resonating with me. Our oldest is in 8th grade, and every week our family is fielding questions related to “are we really going to homeschool through high school???” It’s so hard not to jump ship out of fear; it’s hard not to sound judgmental when I give reasonings for continuing to homeschool through high school; and it’s hard to watch teens go down the same-old-path of waywardness bc they are being led by their peers and society, not their families.
I am so appreciative of Davis and Rachael’s BOLDNESS to speak out and speak up. “Socialization” is scary. People who advocate for socialization honestly don’t understand what they are advocating for.
I look forward to all of the Let’s Talk Homeschool episodes. Please keep them coming!!
Don't stop at highschool
Thank you for being brave and speaking truth. Your show is a true blessing. Keep up the amazing work!!
