You can listen to their special Valentine’s Day show here. I’m on at the 35:45 mark. Thanks to Sara Tate for arranging the interview.

This Dutch national newspaper ran a story about minimalism in which I was featured. If you understand Dutch, you can read the story online here (thanks to Vincent for the link).
