Welcome to our podcast, a welcoming space for the secular homeschooling community that has been our support and inspiration throughout the years.
Our mission is to reciprocate the kindness we have received by sharing our experiences, offering guidance, and of course, sharing a good laugh (and sometimes shedding a tear) as we narrate our stories and accompany you on your own homeschooling adventure. Our journey would not have been possible without the invaluable guidance from our homeschooling friends who have walked alongside us. With the creation of Been There Done That Homeschool Podcast, our goal is to pay it forward and give back to the secular homeschooling community. We hope that you join us on this exciting journey!
We create FREE resources to compliment each week’s episode. You can find them in the show notes of each episode or view the entire collection HERE:
