Living The Simple Life With Astrophysicist Joshua Spodek

If you had to give up one convenience of modern living, what would it be? Imagine, if you will, life without electricity. That would mean no Netflix, Hula, YouTube and no TikTok. Also, imagine not having a refrigerator or central air to cool down in the dead of summer. Better yet, what if you were told you had to give all this up today? Could or would you do it?

Well, believe it or not, this isn’t something Joshua Spodek, an astrophysicist living in New York City, has to imagine. He has been living this way, to a degree, for the past few months. 

Spodek, an author and adjunct professor at New York University, recently joined the hosts of “After Dark” to share what he calls living off the “grid.” This means he uses little to no electricity in his apartment. He turned it all off. He has been using a solar panel and battery to charge everything up. This may seem like deprivation to some; Spodek said he doesn’t feel deprived of any of life’s modern conveniences. He explained he is living by his values. While he realizes this might not be ideal for some, this does help him to do his part in reducing his carbon footprint. Those who are concerned about global warming and decreasing their carbon footprint might want to try going off the grid, for a while.

Joshua Spodek Ph.D. MBA is a three-time TEDx speaker, #1 bestselling author of Initiative and Leadership Step by Step, host of the award-winning This Sustainable Life podcast, and professor at NYU. He holds a Ph.D. in astrophysics and an MBA from Columbia, where he studied under a Nobel Laureate and helped launch a satellite. He is one of the founders of an invention that showed animated images to subway riders between stations. He has taught and coached leadership and entrepreneurship at NYU and Columbia Business School. He has spoken at Harvard, Princeton, West Point, Google, IBM, The New York Academy of Science, and Children’s Aid Society. He has appeared on TV and in the NY Times and Wall Street Journal to discuss Sustainable Life and leadership. He was called the “best and brightest” in Esquire’s Genius issue, “astrophysicist turned new media whiz” by NBC, and “rocket scientist” by Forbes.

Spodek has swum across the Hudson River twice, has done burpees daily since 2011 (165,000 and counting), takes 16 months to produce one load of garbage, and hasn’t flown (by choice) since March 2016.
