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!

This week’s topic is “what to do when it all goes to hell.” Even the most detailed planning sometimes falls apart when you’re traveling, but it’s important to keep a good attitude and be resourceful. Today’s special guests weighing in on the topic are —

Mike Sowden — story-telling expert and voice behind the travel misadventure blog Fevered Mutterings. Find Mike at —

Then we’ll get some local eyes on the scene in the breathtaking Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, with Bryton Stefnik, owner of the most popular bar and taqueria The Tasty Waves Cantina. Bryton and his team throw one hell of a party, so be sure to tune in for his best 24 hours!
