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 “Sharing!” A recent conference between TED and IBM explored how idea sharing in the digital age can re-imagine our future. In honor of the broadcast, we’ll be covering sharing companies that are key to twenty-something travelers. Tune in to hear from special guests —

Then we’ll get some local eyes on the scene in Rome! Rome is a beautiful city, but it can be overwhelming. Don’t miss the ladies behind the blog Young In Rome as they tell you exactly where to go, where to stay, how to get around, and most importantly, where to eat.
