I really enjoy listening to this podcast. it has helped me get rid of so much stuff. when I am trying to declutter, my mind usually goes to why I want to keep something, but listening to this while I declutter helps me let go of things a bit easier.

Seems to be a little tone deaf, but I'll play along. Would you like to sell me $450 sneakers while we're at it?

The SARSCov2 virus requires a test of the viruses RNA, the genetic code, in order to trace its origin. There are variants of this SAME virus!! It mutates on a person to person basis, but certain basic “codes” remain!! The PANDEMIC isn’t blown out of proportion. Educate yourselves. The WHO has a self paced course, on COVID19 disease, which is what SARSCov2 causes.

so he went from one radical diet (raw vegan not necessarily vegan) to another radical diet. Also the fact that he made a quick comment on "toxins" in plant foods... come on. Eating a carnivore diet is literally antithetical to minimalism, given the huge amount of resource expenditure. I'm not saying go vegan and I completely acknowledge there are people who have issues digesting fiber. There is a good middle ground and it's completely ridiculous to say that vegetables are bad for you.

i Actually started on my minimalist journey without realizing it last year when I read the book "the gentle art of Swedish death cleaning"by Margareta Magnussen. it prompted me to get rid of stuff from two deceased husbands. a friend told me several years ago that if I still had my husband's stuff, I'm not past or over his death. so I dont have the stuff but have saved the good memories in my heart. and going forward I'm decluttering things so people I leave behind are not faced with that task.
