The Smart and Simple Matters Podcast

Smart and Simple Matters CoverWelcome to the Smart and Simple Matters podcast – a consistently popular show with 100,000s of downloads.

I (Joel) use SASM to explore the slower side of life, simplicity through mindfulness, and intentional living (among other things).

For example, I feature interviews about meditation with TED Talk hot-shots like Andy Puddicombe, gratitude with experts like Tsh Oxenreider, minimalism with influencers like Joshua Becker, or Primal-living with Paleo superstars like Mark Sisson.

But I'm just as passionate about chatting with normal folks like you and me or going solo on community-building and relationships.
