The Unschool Files


The Unschool Files is about community.

Listeners and friends of the podcast are the essence of a wonderful online community that is happening in multiple spaces, giving parents and caregivers an opportunity to connect and support each other. Offerings from Meghan are a labor of love, and always aim to be accessible.


Meghan is the curator of The Unschool Files Community Zine, a gritty, handmade zine that features the art and work of unschoolers both young and adult. tucked inside each issue you will find art, poetry, recipes, photography, essays and community resources that give a glance into the many ways people are unschooling around the globe. currently publishing three times a year with the help of the Zine Team.

 You can get a physical or digital copy of the zine here in the store.


The Unschool Files community hosts an active Discord server where we talk about everything under the sun.

Channels focus on topics like unschooling with Neurodiversity, SDE community building & new unschoolers, as well as channels for BIPOC, ND and LGBTQIA+ folks to find support within those experiences.
