I love listening to this podcast on my way to work

Inspiring as always

Started with the podcast on Stan. And i thought to myself - what an amazing man he must be. For friends like you guys to remember him, and talk about him 3 years after he has passed on. Love the content, thank you!

Just a tiny shout-out ,

For Hurricane Harvey Relief

Recently discovered these great minds of The Minimalists whose principles and ideas resonated harmoniously with me. Greatly enjoyed reading their essays and the condensed podcast transcripts on their website (which I now follow and check out rather regularly for new posts). Have yet to listen to a full podcast yet, as of this writing, but will do real soon. Largely writing this review as per the title states, but that aside, I do support their work and would recommend others to check it out. A massive Thank You to you guys behind The Minimalists for your great big hearts.
