Wabi Sabi is a podcast that ponders about life through the lens of impermanence + imperfection all while imbibing tea in the traditional Gong Fu style. Gong Fu means ‘the art of doing something well’. In the tea ceremony known as gong fu cha, the implication is that time, effort, and dedication will produce a profound tea experience. The topics explored in this show are wide ranging: Life, love, food, culture, time, work, money, parenthood, technology, creativity and much more. All interviews are conducted with a jazz-like mentality; all unedited, unscripted, and freeform. A bit about me, Adam, your host: Dad to a 3 year old daughter, freelance user experience designer, musician, and tea eccentric living in Los Angeles. I’m no expert on eastern philosophy or Japanese aesthetics; just a curious human that loves connecting with others and hearing their stories. All feedback welcome.

    Smartphone Addiction and the benefit of 'Going Light' with Joe Hollier

    My guest today is Joe Hollier -- artist, product designer, and co-founder of Light, which develops simple phones that are brilliantly designed to be used as little as possible aka 'going light'.
    "Light was born as an alternative to the tech monopolies that are fighting more and more aggressively for our time & attention. Light creates tools that respect you. Objects that empower you to be your best self. Technology intentionally designed to be used as little as possible. Things that serve, not enslave you."
    We discussed the origins of the Lightphone, recognizing smartphone addiction, and the benefits of 'going light'.

Enjoyable and thought provoking

I’ve known Adam for many years and watched his evolution as an artist. Very much enjoying these conversations and feel like I’m being educated about tea. Will definitely keep listening.
