Minimalist podcast with Maximal outcome

This podcast has taught me a great many things. I have followed The minimalists for years now and began my minimalist journey then. The podcast is a compliment to my life and how I live. To this day I learn something new from each podcast. Time here is time well spent.

JCusta ,

Where are the pre-2019 episodes?

Yea. If you think I’m going to go an pay for this on Patreon or through a different source…I might as well start cutting the proverbial cord here. If it isn’t on Apple Podcasts app, I’m not going to pay for it. Good luck.

In perpetuity

I return to this podcast over and over again!
I’m the wife of a career Air Force officer (we’ve moved a lot in 20 years!) and I’m the homeschooling mom to our large family (baby to teen!). The synergistic relationships of the hosts has been invaluable in supporting my own mindset and lifestyle choices in a world of overwhelming over abundance! Keep going friends. Your craft is appreciated!
