We're switching things up a bit today, and bringing you excerpts from an episode of Wild Ideas Worth Living.

Wild Ideas Worth Living is a podcast about people who have wild ideas -- ideas that others think are crazy -- and do them anyway.

On this episode, we talk with host Shelby Stanger about her choice to give up a stable career in order to pursue her passion and launch her show. And we bring you excerpts from her interview with Rob Greenfield, a man who has created a life he loves through living with less.

Rob lives on $5,000 a year -- voluntarily. He has no credit card, no bills to pay; and he's undertaken challenges like producing zero waste while biking across the country.

 
 
 
 
If I don’t have a $100 cell phone bill, which is $1,200 a year, that means $1200 worth of work that I don’t have to do, which means I can be doing what I love to do.
— Rob Greenfield
