The Simple Show with Tsh Oxenreider

Podcast Episode #8: Put on your Brave Pants, with Sarah Mackenzie

I love meeting homeschooling women who don’t have their act together, nor do they pretend. Sarah Mackenzie is one of those—and I love that the stuff she writes and talks about is inspiring for non-homeschooling families as well. She’s all about talking about basic stuff, reminding us that those things can go a long way towards making us saner and healthier.

Spiral notebooks, reading aloud, working from a place of rest, and just asking for what you want: all basic things. All good things. That’s what Sarah’s about, and that’s what we talk about in this next episode of The Simple Show.

Podcast Episode #1: Wait… What?

I know, I know—this seems out of nowhere. Starting over with a new podcast? Why, you’ve only been doing the other one for four years now. Well, here I am, doing a brand new podcast. Why? Well, to be honest, it’s a pretty boring reason, mostly having to do with glitches and zipzorps and what-not. (read more…)
