I thought they were giving us 5 questions to ask before buying something? Did I miss something?

Free Solo is a good documentary. It's about a rock climber attempting to clime a cliff without the safety of a harness & ropes, while being filmed. You can see camera guys cringing.

Hello! I recently started at the beginning and I'm finding great value from these podcasts. I listened to the health one the other day and went on a healthy grocery trip the next day. Thanks, Josh and Ryan! 👏

Thank y'all so much for the brithday gifts episode. My friend's last year in her 20's birthday is coming up and there's been a lot of hype surrounding it. I've been struggling with what to get her because I have this reputation of being an excellent gift giver, however, this year I'm stumped. I've always been one to honor the non-obligatory/gift that adds value gift and while listening to this episode, I came up with the best idea thanks to y'all! She's been struggling in her dating life so I think I will take her on the best date of her life so she won't settle for these guys that don't want to put in any effort. I want her to start the last year in her 20's as a confident woman who knows her self-worth. Assisting her with this venture would be the best gift I could give her with an immense amount of value.

The blond guy is probably a nice person, no doubt but harder to listen to, sometimes too pushy in his ways and that translates bad on the show (marketing the payable option with also the vibe "I have to do do this with a big smile" That can comes out not so genuine and rather offputting// after all you worked with sells so probably second skin to you which is OK but yeah//. Minimalism is attached to humility in my case so it JUST doesn't match. The dark hair guy is always a breeze of fresh air, positive and goofy lovable. That being said, I think this topic was a good one and I will keep listening to your show. Even if you repeat yourself (And I am not saying that you are) it is almost necessary to truly get our overwashed brains to implement something more meaningful and for this I thank you! Love you both! And sorry for not remembering face or names, it is a condition, Al pacino and Andy Garcia are also the same person to me :)

I think it's more about social network clutters, not digital clutters. at least the first 20 minutes.

I loved this podcast when it first started. it was original, thoughtful, and had genuine hosts. Now, a lot of the episodes sound the same, there are hour long conversations about one of the host's health that are extremely similar to one another, and the people they have on often have no expertise but tell the audience that "you ARE the most important person on the planet!" It feels more like a religious self help feel good podcast than a podcast about minimalism. At the beginning, it wasn't all about the hosts and how they live in CA now. I tried to keep listening but I would feel a dread every time a new podcast would pop up. Josh is very condescending and narcissistic. My advice: start from the beginning, and once they start to sound repetitive stop listening.
