A long interview in the language of Shakespeare ( or close to it 😉 ) during which I look back on my adolescence, my student years and all the reasons that made me choose this way of life. It also talks about degrowth, self-knowledge, veganism, breathing and enthusiasm.
Thanks to Diego Barrazas for this very enjoyable moment. And to Paloma Gattica for organizing the meeting.
