About a month ago, I took a whirlwind trip to Hollywood to sit down with Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Fields Millburn, a.k.a. “The Minimalists”, in their studio to chat about how to navigate the holidays–a season that is often overwhelming with it’s consumerist focus–while practicing minimalism. It was such a fun conversation!
You can listen or watch the shortened version (about 48 minutes) on any podcast app or on their YouTube channel. If you want to hear the full conversation (I believe it was around 2 hours), then subscribe to their Patreon to listen to an even more in-depth discussion.
I am so grateful to these guy and to their producer, Shawn, for having me on. It was such a wonderful experience and truly is an honor!
In case you’re not familiar with them, The Minimalists are ‘famous’ in this space largely because of their hit documentary on Netflix, “Minimalsm” (2016), and have had great success with their books on minimalism. Together, Millburn and Nicodemus have co-authored four books: a self-help book, Minimalism (2011); a memoir, Everything That Remains (2014); an essay collection, Essential (2015); and their forthcoming relationship book, Love People Use Things, which is scheduled to be published in 2021. The Minimalists speak on the topic all around the country by going on tour regularly. Their podcast has a huge audience and is incredibly polished. I highly recommend you binge-listen to this one!
