“I’ve just spent a joyful afternoon at a WordPlay workshop [which] I heard about through one of my mates. It takes you out of your comfort zone a bit - writing a play, then hearing your voice - It was a nice way to spend an afternoon and meet some cool people and have a laugh. It was really fun!” - Nick

The Home Education Podcast Club

We will be setting up our pop-up recording studio at the East Dulwich Community Centre every 2-3 weeks and with the help of your creative, talkative and inspiring children, we will be producing a regular Home Education Podcast starring 8+ year old future podcast & radio stars! Each podcast episode will be released and shared within the home ed community once every two sessions (depending on how much gets recorded).
Tickets for each session costs £5 Pay on the Door, but must be booked in advance. The club will consist of basic audio editing, interviewing each other on set topics, recording sounds to accompany the podcast, and perhaps the odd interview with you, the parents!

The aim of this podcast club is for home educated children to discuss fun topics of relevance and interest and to be informative for parents, so if you would also like to take part, we’re looking for parents to share their top tips, discuss resources they use, talk about upcoming events and outings etc. (Parents take part for free)!
