Youth on Subjects of the World – Listen in on our panel of amazing young people as they discuss current world events. They will choose one broad topic for each show, and talk about the facts, as well as, of course, their own opinions.
Our panel for our premiere episode includes Marley Richards, Neil Karkhanis, and Martin Harvey-Olson. The topic that they have chosen to discuss is the 2016 US Presidential Election.
This is such a HUGE topic, our panelists have SO much to discuss.
They plan to discuss Election Night, the Electoral College, the allegations of voter suppression and fraud, the inauguration, the ongoing marches and protests, the new president’s first week in office, and so much more. If you tune in live, you can ask your own questions as well!
All three of our panelists have been featured on multiple episodes of another CCN show,For the Love of Learning, with Lainie Liberti. They enjoyed it so much that they decided to produce their own show, with FTLOL Co-Producer Anne Boie as Lead Producer.
Marley Richards is a 12-year-old otaku interested in all things entertainment. She is a choreographer, singer/songwriter, and bilingual voice actress (Japanese and English). She is also a character designer whose largest inspiration is trap and hip-hop music. Her family largely travels between America and Jamaica, with her favorite location being the latter.
Martin Harvey-Olson is an unschooled kid who is all about creative expression through music. He has been following his passions for years – cosplay, art, martial arts, gymnastics, but most of all music. He has taught himself to play multiple instruments, and is working on mastering multiple musical styles and genres, although his favorite is Rock/Alternative.
Neil Karkhanis is 14 years old and attends South Jersey Sudbury School, a democratic free school where the students decide how to spend their time. He enjoys discussing politics, education, world events and nutritional science. He has been involved in community theater since the age of six. He spends a few months out of the year living in Tampa, FL and the rest in New Jersey. He’s very excited to have this platform to share views and ideas with others.
Anne Boie, Producer
Anne Boie is an entrepreneur and partner in work, family and play to her husband, David Leahy. She is a dedicated unschooling mother of the four Leahy children, ages 4- 16. Several years ago after the birth of their fourth child, they decided to pursue their dream of leaving rural Texas for a more exciting urban location. After researching several options with the help of their children, they chose Hackettstown, New Jersey, located between New York City and Philadelphia, and moved their warehouse of more than a million Lego bricks, two dogs, three cats, four children, one Nana (David’s mom) and all their belongings halfway across the country. Having previously been active in the Dallas-area unschooling community, Anne next set her sights on the surprising lack of unschooling gatherings in the New York/New Jersey area and decided to fill the need herself. With the help of David, their kids, and a few friends, she created the Life Without Instructions Conference as a means to meet like-minded families for shared learning, fun and community.
Anne was very excited to take on the role of co-producer of the For the Love of Learning show, as a means of exploring ideas about education from people all over the world, and to help create a better world by showing parents that there is another way, they don’t have to blindly follow the crowd when it comes to education and raising happy children.
She is even more excited to take on this new role as lead producer for Youth on Subjects of the World. This amazing group of young people will give you hope for the future of our world.
