For Beginners: Minimalism Made Simple

The name of this podcast says it all! If you’re looking for an easy way to begin a more simple, sustainable way of life, this is a great place to start. Minimalist blogger Rebecca Crespo’s shows are structured around clear definitions of key minimalist concepts, with plenty of achievable, applicable advice.

Each quick and accessible episode covers just one central minimalist topic. As such, it’s a handy and never-overwhelming entry point for any budding minimalist.

The Deep Dive: The Minimalists

Joshua and Ryan are kind of the OGs of minimalism podcasts. Their podcast has been going for over five years, and they’ve covered pretty much every topic under the sun – always from a very thoughtful and philosophical perspective. They practice what they preach, too. Despite their success, their minimalist podcast remains ad-free.

Their focus is, naturally enough, sustainability and minimalism. However, they use this as a jumping-off point to discuss deeply human, fundamental concepts as varied as relationships, creativity, and health. It’s not all hard work though. Their great ‘quickies’, only 5 or 6 minutes long, are a fun and accessible way to get started!

Their relaxed, relatable style is also mirrored in their approach to the topics they discuss. These include ideas like zero-waste lifestyles and financial good sense, as well as minimalism and veganism. They’re never pushy or dogmatic, so if you’re thinking of going vegan – recipes are sprinkled throughout their shows! – this is a great place to start.

The Hang-out Podcast: Soul & Wit

Mother and daughter duo Courtney and Bailey just kind of… hang out together. And it works! Their breezy, familiar, and sometimes charmingly rambling podcast approaches minimalism from a very personal perspective.

They touch on issues such as happiness, holidays, and hustling for a raise in a very natural but unfailingly helpful and positive way. Their recent episode on life hacks, for example, is fun to listen to but also full of great, simple tips that you’ll love sharing with your friends.
