Misunderstood Minimalism in The New York Times

The New York Times recently printed two disparaging articles about minimalism that were especially disheartening because the authors blatantly misunderstood minimalism.

In this episode, I respond to these articles by explaining what minimalism is to promote understanding and moderation.
