"'Don't you see?' I cried, 'I am very busy with matters of consequence!'
He stared at me, thunderstruck. 'Matters of consequence!' He looked at me there, with my hammer in my hand, my fingers black with engine-grease, bending down over an object which seemed to him extremely ugly ... 'You talk just like the grown-ups!' That made me a little ashamed. But he went on, relentlessly: 'You mix everything up together . . . You confuse everything!' He was really very angry. He tossed his golden curls in the breeze. 'I know a planet where there is a certain red-faced gentleman. He has never smelled a flower. He has never looked at a star. He has never loved any one. He has never done anything in his life but add up figures. And all day he says over and over, just like you: "I am busy with matters of consequence!" And that makes him swell up with pride. But he is not a man—he is a mushroom!'
— Antoine de Saint Exupéry, The Little Prince
Before heading to Europe (in what seems like a lifetime ago), I was invited to be a guest on the wonderful 10 Questions We Always Ask podcast, and was honored and excited and obviously happy to oblige. So two nights prior to departing for Madrid, I sat down with the lovely trio of Rebecca, Joel, and Producer Robert to discuss some old and new adventures in simplicity, and really just simplicity in itself: how and why to live with less, and why less is more, and all the things you've known me to ramble on and on about during the long winding history of this little blog (also, I stumble over the what-is-a-tiny-house question as though I've never seen one in my life).
But now it's (a little) structured, and in audio form, and it's also a multi-sided conversation with some really excellent hosts.
Honestly, this interview was among the most—strike that, the very most—fun I've ever had the privilege to be on the receiving end of. Here's a list of episodes (via Stitcher, click here for iTunes)—any and all of which are worth checking out—and here's the one we did together (direct MP3 download, or find Episode 26: Tiny Big Time on your preferred podcast manager), which came out a couple weeks back, if you'd like a listen.
In sum: podcast, here. Enjoy!
