In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua & Ryan speak with Julien Smith, founder of Breather, in Montreal, and they answer the following questions:

  • What is the most challenging aspect of your current journey as The Minimalists?
  • How do I reconcile many of the traditional goals I grew up with—corporate career, marriage, children, home ownership, etc.—with the tenets of minimalism I now follow?
  • How do you recommend we address others who question our minimalist lifestyle?
  • How do we help our children become more conscious of compulsory consumption?
  • What advice do you have for recent college graduates who are graduating with mountains of debt and molehills of prospects?
  • What is the next step after decluttering?
