The Slow Home Podcast

We live life in the fast lane. We race to keep up with The Joneses. We are over-worked, over-connected and over-stressed, and we compete on how busy and important and sleep-deprived we are. But we don't have to. There is an ever-growing group of people who are saying no to life lived at 110%. They are opting to slow down, simplify, say no and focus on the things that are truly important. Brooke McAlary, founder of, is one of them, and in this podcast she chats to others who have adopted a similar approach to life: simple living, slowing down, opting out, saying no. Learn what makes people change, how life is different, and what their advice is to anyone looking to get out of the fast lane.


episode 7: Futuresteading with Jade Miles

Brooke chats with Jade Miles, co-host the Futuresteading podcast and co-founder of Black Barn Farm, to learn about what future-steading is and how it applies to everyone - regardless of where we live. 

They also talk about Jade's beautiful new book Futuresteading, a practical and inspirational guide to living in a way that values tomorrow: a slower, simpler, steadier existence that is healthier for you, your home and the environment.
