    The human body! We haven’t really covered that yet in our science explorations. We get stuck on astronomy, ecology and geology 🙂

    • Blair

      I understand how easy it is to get stuck on those. I am writing Earth and Space now and WOW!!! this is fascinating stuff.

  2. Sarah

    Love the podcast! And I loved the interview with Blair Lee. Big thanks for introducing me to pandia books; I didn’t know these awesome books existed.

  3. Jen Driscoll

    We look forward to investigating more genetics, botany, and microbiology! We did a great job with anatomy and how the animal kingdoms are related from a phenotypic sense, with a light touch on the smaller scale of life. Next time around we need to look harder at the relationships from the genetic side and have more fun playing with microscopes!

    Just found your podcast, looking for secular homeschooling/Charlotte Mason stuff… fantastic! I’ve been considering investing in some Pandia Press books. I’m studying pre-med myself so everything Human Body is what I’m interested in!

  5. Ellie

    Have recently discovered Pandia Press and about to start Biology 1 with my two boys. Looking forward to Biology 2 aswell!
    Great interview too; thanks.

  6. Stefany

    We’re looking forward to the evolution chapter in Biology 2. Not many science books (at least those aimed at homeschoolers) discuss evolution so I’m glad Blair Lee does!
    Also, thanks for mentioning Cosmos in your Podcast, we’re loving the series so far!

  7. Raechelle

    Found this when researching a secular homeschool science program for next year. I already use Pandia Press for history, thanks for the Bio 2 info. You guys are great, “liked” you on facebook!

    We recently recieved our first Pandia Press curriculum, and we love it! It is exactly what I’d been searching for!
