Ethan Mitchell on Being a Polymath

What’s it like to be someone who knows a little bit about everything? Or sometimes, a *lot* about everything? Ethan Mitchell (zemita.net) is a teacher and essayist who lives on a sheep farm in Vermont, attended just one semester of college, and writes an underground newsletter called the “Hebdromodary.” In this interview we talk about Ethan’s wide-ranging interests, self-directed learning path, numerous weird jobs, and views on unschooling.
