Joshua & Ryan discuss ownership of things versus access to things with Ryan Delk from Omni, and they answer the following questions:

Is ownership simply a matter of satisfying one’s ego?

Is it always better to rent something instead of buying it?

Should I invest in things I use frequently instead of minimizing everything?

How do I determine what I must own compared to what I can have access to?

How do I enjoy the benefits of streaming services without the stress of the expense and the constant notifications?

Where do I draw the line between ownership and access regarding items that adapt and evolve as I use them, such as musical instruments?

Why does our culture place such an emphasis on ownership?
