023: Tiny House, Big Decision with Tiny House Podcast Co-host Perry Gruber

Perry Gruber is a man of many hats including entrepreneur, speaker, and social engineer. He is the founder of Copiosis, which is a new economic system for a post-capitalist world. In addition to this he is the co-founder of The Tiny House Podcast which is the most popular tiny house podcast in the world.

Perry Gruber grew up in California and has always felt deeply connected to the natural world. After his parents’ divorce and subsequent uprooting to the east coast, Perry grew up dealing with economic hardship. At this point Perry decided it was most important to focus on gaining a better socioeconomic status. As he reached the peak of his career, Perry knew something was missing and decided to lead a more sustainable life.

Perry has since started building his own tiny house and is an avid tiny house enthusiast. In this episode we discuss the tiny house movement and much more including pros, cons, and how Perry got started on his journey.
