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,
