If you stripped your life of "stuff" -- the toys, the electronics, the furniture, even the house -- what would be left? That's the question at the heart of "Everything That Remains," a memoir by "The Minimalists" Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus. At an existential crossroads, they left behind their careers and compulsive consumption to figure out what really adds value to their lives. The Minimalists join Doug to talk about living more fully with less. (Rebroadcast)

Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus are the authors of Everything That Remains [Indiebound|Amazon]. They blog at TheMinimalists.com
