Listen to Program. May 5, 2012 Saturday Edition “The Man Who Quit Money” – A Portrait of the Life of Daniel Suelo. An extended international radio program travels deeply into the life of Daniel Suelo and explores spiritual and historical context.

Daniel James Shellabarger (known as Suelo, born 1961) is an American simple living adherent who stopped using money in the autumn of 2000. He was born in Denver and currently lives part-time in a cave near Moab, Utah when he is not wandering the country. Suelo gained notoriety in October 2009 when his profile appeared in the US men’s style print magazine Details. This story was picked up by websites such as The Guardian in the UK, The Huffington Post, and Matador Change. He was also interviewed for the BBC in September 2009, by The Denver Post in November 2009, and the Brazilian INFO in November 2009. His story has since been repeated by many websites and news agencies around the world. Suelo was the subject of a 2006 video profile entitled Moneyless in Moab (2006), by Gordon Stevenson and a 2009 video profile entitled Zero Currency (2009), by Brad Barber as well as being featured on KBYU’s Beehive Stories (2010), also by Brad Barber. His biography, The Man Who Quit Money, was written by Mark Sundeen and published by Riverhead/Penguin in 2012. Suelo states he is not accepting proceeds from the book. A short film about Suelo, narrated by Mark Sundeen, is on BBC News Online. Suelo is one of a number of individuals who voluntarily live without money. These also include Heidemarie Schwermer, Mark Boyle and Tomi Astikainen. Suelo appeared as a guest writer on Mark Boyle’s blog in January 2011. Extract from Wikipedia.

  1. Hi there great website! Does running a blog like this require a great deal of work?
    I’ve no knowledge of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I simply wanted to ask. Kudos!
