WHS 48 – Interview with Jim and Kathy Newell – The Wired Homeschool

I’m interrupting my current series to bring you an interview with Jim and Kathy Newell.  We’re talking about the annual LEAH Homeschooling Conference in Rochester, NY.  Normally I wouldn’t interrupt a series but this interview is time-sensitive so I felt it was important enough to break one of my own rules.

I’ve known Jim and Kathy for almost 10 years and we sat in their kitchen and had a discussion about the conference, reasons to attend the conference, and more.

This year’s conference will take place May 31st – June 2nd at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. Pre-registration is closed right now but you can still register at the door for one or more days. Family rates are available.

WHS Encore – Interview with Todd Wilson – The Wired Homeschool

This week’s podcast is an encore interview I did with Todd Wilson in 2007. You may notice an obvious difference in audio quality bit that can’t be helped.

It was recorded almost 5 years ago and the equipment I was using was pretty low-tech.

I will conclude the series on iOS and iTunes parental controls next week.

Additionally, I’m looking to interview organizers of homeschooling conventions. If you are one or you know one, send them my way! I’d like to do a series on conventions in May.

About Todd Wilson

Todd Wilson, author of Help! I’m Married to a Homeschooling Mom and The Official Book of Homeschooling Cartoons, is a dad, writer, conference speaker, and former pastor. Todd’s humor and gut-honest realness have made him a favorite speaker at homeschool conventions across the country and a guest on Focus on the Family.

His articles have appeared in various magazines. Christianity Today also posts his weekly column (The Familyman Weekly) on their website.

Todd and his wife Debbie, along with their eight children spend several months of the year traveling the country encouraging moms and dads. His humor, realness, and straight talk to men (& women) have become his trademark.

Developed by a homeschooler for homeschoolers, MyHST looks to be a very valuable tool in the homeschooler’s tool kit. Here’s yet another way to use technology to accelerate your homeschooling.
