SIMPLY, LIVED IN BY NINE56 STUDIO
Simply, Lived In is a podcast started by Factory45’er Meg Floersch, founder of Nine56 Studio. Following the death of her father, Meg began to question the pace of her life and wondered, “What would it look like if I simplified?”
It’s with this mantra in mind that she interviews guests who are pursuing minimalism, slow fashion, local eating and living a more purposeful life.
This podcast is perfect for anyone who is inspired to slow down, live life intentionally and explore a more minimalist lifestyle.
