Precious time with a seasoned expert for any families, adults and children interested in learning how to start a podcast.


Akilah S. Richards hosts Fare of the Free Child, a lifestyle and parenting podcast about the connection between liberation, learning, and parenting, particularly among BIPOC communities. Parents, educators, unschoolers and entrepreneurs tune in weekly to connect about unschooling, deschooling, conscious parenting, and self-directedness. We talk about emotional wellness, learning and children, parenting, self-care, and self-love. Akilah is passionate about mindful partnerships and parenting. Her voice and work have been featured on NPR, NBC TV, Good Morning America’s blog, and in several magazines, including Essence and Real Simple. She is a celebrated TEDx Speaker, an accomplished digital content writer, and sought-after facilitator whose book, Raising Free People, will be released in August of this year.
