Greg McKeown teams with Wheelhouse Entertainment to launch new podcast based on his lauded book 'Essentialism'


Los Angeles CA, USA—Author, renowned public speaker and business and leadership strategist Greg McKeown is expanding on his New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestseller, “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less” (over one million copies sold), with the new weekly podcast Essentialism launching its first four episodes today, with new installments available every Monday. The podcast is produced by Wheelhouse Entertainment.

McKeown regularly teaches the “essentialist” principles outlined in his celebrated book to leaders at companies such as Apple, Google and Facebook; now, at a time when prioritizing has never been more vital, he’s bringing his much-sought insights and perspective to listeners everywhere via intimate, highly substantive conversations with industry leaders and celebrities, as well as everyday people, exploring what is essential and how to eliminate what’s not (with actionable advice).

The first four episodes of “Essentialism” – featuring Greg’s wife Anna McKeown, Arianna Huffington, Drew and Linda Scott and Rev. Dr. Helen Easterling Williams – are available now on all platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher.
