Before Off Trail Learning: The Real Education Podcast

The Off-Trail Learning podcast was originally the Real Education Podcast, through which I recorded 19 episodes in 2015. Here’s the original description:

What does it mean to get a “real education”—one that prepares you for the most important parts of life, instead of just academic achievement? In this podcast, I interview the founders of innovative camps, schools, learning centers, and other educational alternatives, as well as authors, parents, and young adults. Topics include self-directed learning, leadership, 21st-century skills, entrepreneurship, college, unschooling, school reform, motivation, and parenting.
