#44 - KonMari Damashii - Tidying up your Otaku lifestyle

#44 - KonMari Damashii - Tidying up your Otaku lifestyle

May 9, 2018

Sully, Bill, and Austin discuss Marie Kondo and her interesting theories on cleaning up your space, decluttering your lifestyle, only keeping things that spark joy.

We start off with some catchup, Sully talks a little about Kirby: Star Allies and checking out My Hero Academia for the first time, Bill and Austin talk about Avengers: Infinity War, and then we introduce the KonMari method, discuss it, then examine how it can apply to otaku/fan culture. Then we go off on related topics like ethical consumption under fandom, how KonMari applies to our backlog of things to watch, and generally how we express ourselves as fans. 

The audio clip in the show is from this video from NHK World: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6BkvPWaCnI

Listen to Marie Kondo discuss her method and take audience questions in her "Talks with Google" forum: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1-HMMX_NR8

You can find Marie Kondo's book on Amazon but definitely try and find it at your local used bookstore first!
