Joshua and Ryan talk about how we all seem to find ourselves having the things we don’t need, and needing the things we don’t have—and how we’re so disconnected from our communities that bartering for those things is nearly impossible—with the founder of HaveNeed, Josh Kline, and they answer the following questions:

What is HaveNeed? (00:00)

How has the pandemic affected bartering? (04:01)

What is your distinction between items that are essential, nonessential, and junk? (06:16)

What would the world look like if there was no such thing as money, which has a vice-like grip on the material world; that is, what would the world look like if it ran strictly on barter? (07:02)

What is the history of bartering? (07:26)

What is the “mutual coincidence of wants”? (08:11)

What is “Object A”? (13:44)

Bartering has been around forever, but seems to have fallen out of favor in recent times—why? (26:51)
