Meet my friends! The top 20 Podcasts on the Ultimate Homeschool Radio Network

I’ve seen many lists of top homeschool podcasts, but this list is important and special to me. This is the list of the top 20 homeschool podcasts on the Ultimate Homeschool Radio Network! People measure success in different ways and I feel the network has been successful first because it has been an answer to prayer and second because it has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of homeschool families. Many of these shows have thousands and thousands of downloads. But to me, there are things more than numbers — although we have over TWO MILLION downloads; more importantly, you are about to meet the people who work hard to create amazing podcasts – the best in homeschooling, as well as the wonderful support team of those who help run this network!

Our Sponsors Bring You This Podcast Network for Free:

When I began in 2013 I handled everything. Any small techie issues, updating the website information, sending out the newsletter (and often breaking the code), and all of the social media. Now, thanks to our listeners and amazing sponsors like Notgrass, WriteShop, True North, Luma Learn, Bright Ideas Press as well as all of our participating podcasters we can bring you contests as well as our network!

Our Team. A Big Thank-you to the following people:

Joy Rhodes: This website could not run without our behind the scenes techie, Joy! She is the one we all turn to for website issues and sends out our weekly eZine with free printables for you each month.

Gina Glenn: Any social media you see is orchestrated and scheduled by Gina. She is an amazing asset and our go-to person for anything social!

Thanks to our special brand ambassadors: Longtime podcast listener Orilla Crider and virtual assistant, Nakisha Blain. These ladies are so helpful in sharing our podcasts with all of you!

To the original Ultimate Homeschool Radio Network podcasters who began alongside me, I want to say thank-you!

I am blessed to be joined by so many of my friends, many who began five years ago alongside me. Some original podcasters now have shows in archives but they are still available! These friends have current shows and took a chance. I had no experience (other than the three years I spent podcasting, elsewhere), I had no idea what number was good for downloads, about feeds, tags or graphics. My goal was not to make money but to serve the homeschool community and allow you to access the podcasts for free.

Thanks to:

So, who funded the Ultimate Homeschool Radio Network the first few years? Media Angels, Inc. my publishing company. The majority of the investment came from the sale of books, audios, and downloadable products. As the owner of this website, my goal is always to bring you the best of homeschool focused podcasts!

Success equals helping one homeschool family at a time!

I’m grateful the Lord gave me this idea years ago to create a homeschool podcast network with some of my friends, fellow homeschoolers, authors, conference speakers, and bloggers. All of us love to encourage you –  while our curriculum, our family size and even where we worship may look different — we are united in our belief that the Lord called us to homeschool and it is our job to encourage you!

On my show, I share the experience of over 30 years of homeschooling! I’m a graduated homeschool mom (my last of five homeschooled children graduated in 2018).  Many months I have themes, this month is “Stress-free” and these podcasts contain the ideas that worked, shortcuts and a heartfelt message that you can do it! I also share on the Creation Science Podcast some of the best from my creation expos. I am blessed to rank as NUMBER THREE on our network! (And that is fine with me! I’m a proud “mama” and love to see my podcasters do well even if they “beat” my numbers!)
