The NOT NORMAL Podcast is about finding out how you want to live, freeing yourself from what society tells us is "normal", including soul-sucking careers, mindless consumption and romanticized relationships with boring people.

Alex Rentner is a weirdo who left behind a promising corporate career and now does whatever he wants, including making music, gardening or travelling. Join him on his quest to find some wisdom and learn from people who have created their own paths in life (or know intersting stuff about personal development or financial independence).
