DJ Jess

Welcome to the Twenty-Something Traveler – the new travel podcast only on BTR! Hosted by DJ Jess, this podcast is entirely dedicated to helping twenty-somethings get out and travel. An array of guests from around the globe will teach you how to do it for cheap — including info on couchsurfing, work study, AirBnB, hitchhiking, walking, road trips, and all manner of ways to see the world you haven’t considered. Plus each week we’ll ask a local living in a popular destination to curate their best 24-hours there so you’ll get the most authentic experience possible from the minute you arrive! I’m your host, DJ Jess, and you can find me at —


This week we’re getting a peek at what traveling as a competitive pole dancer and instructor is like with world-renowned dancer Michelle Stanek. In 2012, Michelle won 5 out of the 6 competitions she entered including the United States Pole Dance Champion title, and co-created elevatED: pole dance fitness and flexibility teacher trainings. She now travels the world dancing, teaching, and judging.

After that it’s my top tips for staying fit when you travel! Being on the road is no excuse to break your exercise goals – learn the most effective ways to keep them despite not having a gym!

After that we’re getting some local eyes on the scene in Syracuse, New York, with BTR’s own Zach Schepis – writer and co-host of our film podcast Scotch and Cinema, our underreported news podcast Third Eye Weekly, and our emerging musician podcast Discovery Artist!
