Episode Info

Episode Info:

We’re back! Thanks for hanging tight with us over the final few weeks of the book tour. In today’s episode, Brooke and Ben check in and catch us up on how they’re feeling and what’s happening next, as well as sharing a reminder about A Simple Year and the special offer available until 14 Nov (more info at

The guys kick off by looking back at the tour (briefly - more on the tour in ep 260 if you missed it), and then sharing how they’re feeling now that it’s all over. It’s a mix of exhaustion and creative energy at Brooke’s end (an interesting combination!) and the joy of being able to finally relax for Ben. Which means a lot less doing for the whole family, and a lot more being and tilting into filling up their cups, including some dedicated creative time - both Brooke and Ben are doing NaNoWriMo!

They’ve also had time to think about what’s next.  Wary of her tendency to announce things too soon, Brooke is shy on the details for some projects she’s currently working on (including the proposal for her next book!) but share that in the spirit of tilting into rest and working on 2019 things, there will be no more episodes for 2018, except for a Christmas Special (more info below). Then there will be the Summer Series as usual in January, and then we’ll be back in Feb, shifting to seasons of the podcast rather than weekly episodes. Brooke explains the reasons for this shift, and what she’s excited about with the new format. She also shares some other ideas in the works, like a revamp of our Patreon community, the return of the Slow Post and Live Life Simply online retreat and the demise of our Facebook page. Planning times abound!

Speaking of that Christmas Special, it’s going to be a wrap up of listener contributions for ways to stay slow during the silly season. So share your hot tips with us! Please send us an email at with your ideas so we can include them in a whizz-bang final episode for the year.  Be sure to hang out with us on Instagram, and use the #slowhomepod so we can see what you’re sharing.
