Great listen for anyone interested in alternative living!

Ethan's Tiny House Lifestyle Podcast is a great resource for anyone interested in alternative living dwellings. He interviews a wide variety of people including spearheaders of the modern tiny house movement, tiny house dwellers, skoolies, vanlifers and even a couple who live on a sailboat. His podcast helped solidify design choices in our own THOW build, and also allowed me to connect with other people in the movement via social media. I'm always excited to see who will be the next guest on the show, and hear a new perspective. Ethan also sheds light on what can be considered the no-so-glamorous parts of tiny living-- very valuable insight for those considering to go tiny or in the process. So glad I found this podcast!

The biggest thing in the world of tiny

If you like podcasts or tiny living then you will LOVE this podcast! Ethan is quickly establishing himself as a tiny house icon.
This podcast is a treasure trove of knowledge, resources, and inspiration. I found this podcast shortly after deciding that I was going to go tiny and it has served somewhere between my own personal sansei and librarian for becoming a tiny houser. Thank you so much for your efforts to help others make these life-changing changes.
