Self serving capitalism

At a time of anthropogenic climate change and the 6th mass extinction, Joshua and Ryan continue to disappear up their self-obsessed backsides with much ado about nothing. Walking lightly on the earth is not about how many ‘things’ you have in your curated apartment. SO much hypocrisy I don’t know where to start...Oh, I know! Let’s start with having guests who advocate raising and slaughtering sentient beings for food. After all, it’s all about me, right?

Meaningful and enjoyable

I came across this podcast through their book “everything that remains” which moved me so much that I cried many times during the reading of it.

I absolutely love listening to these podcasts, I love the range of topics around minimalism that they cover. I find it consistently interesting, informative, and inspirational. I think anyone, even people not interested in living a minimal life, can find useful moments within it. If you want to live a purposeful life, have a listen. Thanks guys

Motivating & inspiring me on the daily

By far my most favourite maths podcast... if you don’t get that (& if you don’t really care about maths), then you need to listen to this podcast... Joshua & Ryan (and their guests) will literally change your life... it might be the slow creep, or it might be the sudden wake up call, but somehow it will seep in & it will be exactly what you need in your life!! Unlike all that other stuff which you really don’t need!! And they can help you with that!!
