Welcome to The Adventurer's Compass: Our Podcasting Journey Begins!

Updated: Sep 19, 2023

In this image, River's hand reaches out towards his laptop, while Emma's hand rests on her desk next to her Mac computer. The wooden desk is illuminated by a kaleidoscope-like light from the window, which has privacy film applied. A mug with the word 'TEA' can be seen, along with a microphone lying on the desk. Sticky notes are open on the computer, and the website editor is visible. On River's laptop, Google search results are displayed. An empty glass is also visible behind his laptop. The image captures a scene of productivity and technology, showcasing the working environment and tools used by Emma and River

Hey there, fellow adventurers!

Emma here, along with my fantastic cohost and partner in crime, River. We couldn't be more excited to share our very first blog post with you - diving into the incredible world of podcasting!

This journey has been a whirlwind of business meetings and iced coffee. Yes, even for my young cohost - because who says age should limit your love for caffeine-induced creativity? (Okay so his might be decaf....) We've been fuelling our brainstorming sessions with an endless supply of ideas, lots of snacks and a bottomless pot of java.

Picture this: a massive pad of paper taking up half the room, covered in scribbles, doodles, and more arrows than you'd find in a medieval battle. We've spent countless hours researching our niche, envisioning our ideal listeners, and immersing ourselves in snippets from a gazillion different podcasts. Trust me, our earbuds have seen it all!!!

But amidst the laughter that made our faces hurt and the occasional tear when the workload became overwhelming for River we've learned a thing or two. We're finding a delicate balance between my relentless drive and River's need for a breather. It's a dance of relentless dedication and mindful pauses to absorb the vast amount of knowledge we're soaking in.

And let me tell you, dear readers, the process has been nothing short of an adventure. We've channeled every ounce of our creativity into crafting a podcast and website that captures the spirit of our journey. It's been a wild ride of learning, growth, and the occasional facepalm moment when we accidentally hit the wrong button on the recording equipment. Oops!

But hey, we're here, and we're ready. We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for joining us on this thrilling expedition. Your support means the world to us, and we're grateful for every pair of eyes devouring these words.

Now, onto the exciting part. In the coming weeks, we'll be sharing lots of blog posts (they will be weekly ultimately but in the next few months I'm going to post more than that because SO MUCH is happening and being learned) providing you with updates on our progress as we prepare to launch our very first podcast episodes. We can't wait to take you along for the ride and give you a behind-the-scenes look at the sweat, tears, and laughter that go into bringing this dream to life.

These blog posts will be honest, informational and hopefully at least a little amusing!

Oh, and did I mention we want to hear from you? Whether you have questions about the process, want to chat about home education, or have suggestions for topics you'd like us to cover, we're all ears! Shoot us an email at, and we promise to read every single message.

Let me know if you want to hear more about a specific area or subject (or less!) because these posts are going to be a bit of a collated brain dump of this learning!

So buckle up, folks! It's going to be one heck of an adventure. Keep an eye out for our weekly blog updates, as we dive deeper into our journey of podcasting greatness. We're on a mission to share stories, inspire creativity, and build a vibrant community.

Thank you for joining us on this wild ride. Let's navigate this extraordinary world together!

With love, neurodivergence and caffeine-fueled enthusiasm, Emma and River
