In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua and Ryan talk about trading in our materialistic clinging for transcendent freedom with author, podcaster, and comedian Lisa Lampanelli, and they answer the following questions:
- How do you define “humor”?
- What is the “United States of Avoidance”?
- When life changes your path, how do you stop clinging to the hope you once had?
- How do we accept the death of a dream?
- What do you mean by “daring to suck”?
- Is it helpful to simply treat our passions as hobbies until they pay the bills?
- How did Lisa get her start in comedy?
- When a loved one has passed, how do I honor their final wishes as executor and appropriately distribute the possessions they clung to when they did not leave specific instructions for doing so?
- How do you stop clinging to the security of a job simply because it pays well?
