After subscribing to 马特D'艾维拉, head on over to The Minimalists channel for even more videos about minimalism and intentional living. Hosted by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus (stars of the 极简主义 documentary), we are especially digging the Living Room Conversations series where the two guys answer viewer questions about leading more simple and meaningful lives. Like D’Avella, The Minimalists also publish video recordings of their acclaimed podcast.
