In this episode, we talk about the role of social media in our lives, both negatively and positively. Online community is more important than ever, and we’ve been thinking for a long time how we can better gather our growing community of fellow alternative travelers in one place. We think we’ve found a great solution, which we’re super excited about! We’ll share more on that in our big announcement!
