The 13th Human - Justin Whitaker of Seattle, Washington - Buddhist Philosopher and Writer

Justin Whitaker, founder of the award-winning blog, American Buddhist Perspectives, was raised as a liberal Catholic but began to explore Buddhism in college. Little did he know at the time that Buddhism would become one of his life's main focuses.

We discuss how the #MeToo movement has touched Buddhism, Justin's cofounding of the Guideful app, and his roots in Helena, Montana.

"We can all be a lot happier with a lot less." -Justin Whitaker
