Jesse will be hosting an AMA on Reddit on Friday, August 11th at 12 pm PST to talk about what he’s learned from making The Turnaround. Visit iama.reddit.com to join in the conversation and ask Jesse anything you’d like.
On the last episode of The Turnaround, Jesse talks to his all-time interviewing hero Terry Gross! For more than 30 years Terry’s hosted Fresh Air from WHYY in Philadelphia, conducting some of the most insightful, fascinating conversations you’ll likely ever hear.
Being a radio interviewer came somewhat naturally to Terry. She tells Jesse she prefers the medium to television, where you’re expected to look or dress a certain kind of way, and where you can’t just disappear behind a microphone. She also goes into the nuts and bolts of how Fresh Air gets made, and why doing a recorded show allows her take risks that often make for wonderful, unexpected moments. They also talk about a not-so-wonderful moment: that infamous 2002 interview with Gene Simmons.
Be sure to check out Terry’s amazing interviews on Fresh Air’s online archives.

In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua & Ryan speak with Patrick Rhone, author of Enough, in Minneapolis, and they answer the following questions:
Is America’s consumerism more nefarious than that of other countries that therefore makes practicing minimalism even more crucial in the United States? Is it better to use up what you have, or is it better to sell it, donate it, or give it away? Should I hang onto the things I purchased for the person I want to become? Are there similarities between the principles of living in Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning and the principles of minimalism? Where should I draw the line with memorabilia? Is it possible for me to live a minimalist lifestyle while making a living selling other people things they don’t need?
