"In this deeply personal talk, Lane Moore (comedian and author of “How To Be Alone: If You Want To And Even If You Don’t”) discusses finding human connections, even when family, friends, and partners disappoint. For anyone who wants to feel less alone, this talk is for you." Lane Moore is an award-winning stand-up comedian, writer, actor, and musician living in New York City. Her monthly comedy show Tinder LIVE! was named on The New York Times’ Critic’s Picks, and CBS called it one of the five best comedy shows in NYC. BUST Magazine named her band It Was Romance the Best Band of 2015 and Billboard named it one of "16 female-fronted brands you should know". In 2017, she created the popular blog Hotties of MTV’s “Next,” which was quickly praised by The AV Club, Distractify, and Cosmopolitan who called Moore a “genius” and the page “perfect.” Moore was also featured on an episode of Comedy Central’s @midnight with her segment, which Chris Hardwick called “amazing.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

She shares why we need less tech and more messy human skills — imagination, humility, bravery — to solve problems in business, government and life in an unpredictable age.

I first learned of Patrick Rhone when he was among the few that were included in a documentary called Minimalism, A Documentary About The Important Things. Patrick is also the author of the book ENOUGH.
While I was just about to push “record” and do my own podcast on the topic, when I heard back from Patrick I decided to turn this into a conversation. And it is one I thoroughly enjoyed having.
Listen in as Patrick and I discuss what minimalism means to us, how to live as a minimalist (whether or not you choose to label it) when your spouse or partner is not, and the other surprising ways living with less can enhance the quality of our lives.
Stories of people who roam the stacks and find unexpected things that just happen to be exactly what they required.
