Winston Crutchfield is a media junkie and fanboy attempting to train the next generation in the ways of the Force. He podcasts, writes, and generally waffles between drooling, goggle-eyed gadgetphile and reclusive, Luddite technophobe. Winston lives in south-central Indiana with his wife and two children, where they are currently owned by a black-and-white cat of undetermined breed, but obvious royal blood. He has been accused of reading too much, speaking like an encyclopedia, and disregarding reality in favor of the facts.

This week Andy Fletcher provides insightful commentary on the CNN report #Being13. Now, more than ever, it is vital that we engage with our teens before they end up on the wrong side of social media.
Andy “Fletch” Fletcher is 1/2 of the dynamic duo over at Homeschooling in Real Life. He and his wife Kendra podcast every week from the trenches of homeschooling and pull back the thin veil revealing that not all homeschoolers have it all together. Fletch has been featured on The Homeschool Heartbeat broadcast and has won the coveted Best Homeschool Dad Blog award for theMangoTimes, but he moonlights as a dentist to pay the bills. He is an eternal optimist, who loves walking Betty the SurfDog, playing the drums, and drinking really good coffee.
I am on a bit of a hiatus due to surgery. I asked a few friends to help me out with episodes while I recovered. The first guest host is Justin Lowmaster.
Justin and I have known each other for quite a while now. He listened to my defunct Jesus Geek podcast and has helped me with other podcasting projects in the past.
About Justin Lowmaster
Justin Lowmaster was homeschooled and wired from a very young age. He now has achieved level 31 in years, and has a wife she is much nicer looking than him, and has sired a son and a daughter, with a third child on the way. Send help.
For hobbies Justin games with his friends and families, occasionally writes for pure pleasure, and more often writes for the Guard Frequency podcast. In addition to humans, chickens also reside on their urban farm.
I’m pretty sure my kids can identify with every one of theses types of homeschoolers.
This is a fun video to watch but it can also be very educational. First, we can use it to talk about stereotypes. Second, we can use it to talk about how we should accept people for who they are. Have fun with this.
