A cozy blanket and a heart-to-heart
Gosh how I love this couple. Brooke and Ben McCallary began talking about what slow living was for them back in 2016. For the past 5 years they’ve walked the talk and taken their audience along with them. Brook’s interviews cover a diverse range of people who prove that living slow is about living with intention, clear in your values, and that ‘slow’ can look however you *want* it to look. And Ben’s perspective and journey has played out with such careful contemplation and insight that it’s been a privilege to listen to it unfold.
The Slow Home podcast is like being welcomed in from the cold, wrapped in a blanket and handed a hot chocolate - then sat down for a heart-to-heart. It’s given me the courage to make decisions that are counter-cultural but absolutely right for me and my family, and we reap the rewards every day. I’ve no doubt it will do the same for anyone who comes to it ready to feel more grounded and comfortable in themselves, their homes and their lives.
Having only discovered this podcast recently, I have the joy of being able to go back and listen to all of the old episodes. Thank you so much to Brooke and Ben for your down to earth, gentle and funny wisdom! The slow living concepts are quite literally life changing.
It’s like listening to friends
I love listening to Brooke and Ben. They are so kind and giving and let us into their lives in an open and honest way. Brooke is an expert in slow living, but not afraid to listen and learn from her guests and give them space to share their knowledge. I wish I knew Brooke and Ben in real life, but also kind of feel like I already do.
