Epis. #37: Colin Beavan, Brooklyn-based writer and 'No Impact Man,' on how to navigate what we really need as opposed to what we think we want

How I Get By
Colin Beavan is a Brooklyn-based writer and life coach. In the mid-2000s, he launched his “No Impact Man” experiment in which he and his wife and daughter led a carbon-zero lifestyle, in New York City, for 6 months. The project went viral, but Colin wrote books before No Impact Man (which also became a book and documentary), and has published books since, including most recently, “How to be Alive,” which explores how both science and traditional wisdom can affect our happiness. With his new work, along with No Impact Man, I got the strong sense that Colin would have a lot of insights relevant to our show (HIGB), specifically around what we want vs what we really need- and Colin delivers.
