    Women in Weed Are Breaking the 'Stoner Guy' Stereotype

    Women in Weed Are Breaking the 'Stoner Guy' Stereotype

    “If women make 80 percent of the spending decisions in the American household, if we buy the beer and the food and the clothes, we're going to buy the weed,” says this week's guest Nidhi Lucky Handa. Nidhi, who launched LEUNE, a cannabis-forward lifestyle brand available in California and Arizona, joins us this week to talk all things weed—from the male-centric stereotypes that led her to launch LEUNE in the first place, the importance of cannabis criminal justice reform groups, what she wishes we all knew about dosage (she's a self-proclaimed "lightweight"), and more.
    This will be our last episode before we come back this summer with some new tricks up our sleeve! In the meantime, you can listen to previous episodes of Women Who Travel on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

    How to Make Your Wellness Vacation Actually Relaxing

    How to Make Your Wellness Vacation Actually Relaxing

    There is little worse than coming home from your vacation feeling like you need an entire additional vacation to destress from your trip. So whether it's prepping at work beforehand to make sure you (and your colleagues) aren't stressed about the state of your inbox or finding a destination that will ensure you're truly taking time for yourself, this week we're talking all about the ways wellness plays into our travels. To chat relaxation strategies and offer some insight into why we're all craving wellness vacations (whatever shape that takes for you personally), we've tapped Traveler's senior features editor, Becca Misner, and Rebecca Platt, director of sales and marketing at Sunswept Resorts in St. Lucia.

    How to Get Yourself Moving After a Winter of Hibernation

    How to Get Yourself Moving After a Winter of Hibernation

    If you're anything like us, this past winter has been a season of hunkering down and staying mostly inside—even if it was inside a bar, restaurant, or museum. But if the weather (and our seasonal allergies) are any indication, spring is here—which means summer adventures are just around the corner. So, this week, to get you kickstarted on summer planning and offer some inspo for getting yourself outside once again, we're joined by Emily Pennington, a Women Who Travel contributor and Outside’s national park columnist, and Megan Spurrell, Traveler's senior editor. We talk all things outdoors, from the best strategy for getting national park camp site permits to the women inspiring us to get moving.

    What Does ‘Wellness’ Even Mean These Days?

    What Does ‘Wellness’ Even Mean These Days?

    As we say at the start of this week's podcast, “wellness” is a word that gets thrown around a lot—but defining what it is can be a real feat, and as it turns out, can mean something a little different to everyone. Joined by Evelyn Escobar, founder of Los Angeles-based Hike Clerb, and Shanika Hillocks, Women Who Travel contributor and brand strategy and marketing consultant, we're talking about all the different ways we're prioritizing wellness in our day-to-day lives and travels, from setting boundaries over email to making time for family and friends. As Evelyn says, “no one, unfortunately, is going to take care of you the way that you need, so we need to do it ourselves and be relentless in that pursuit.”

    The Best Books We've Read Recently

    The Best Books We've Read Recently

    When we started planning this episode, we thought we'd talk about the books we turn to for relaxation—the books that bring us moments of zen and let us find a sense of calm. But when we actually sat down with our guests—Lisa Lucas, publisher at Pantheon and Schocken Books, and Jynne Dilling Martin, deputy publisher at Riverhead Books—we realized that when the world is stressing us out, we turn to all sorts of book to help us decompress. So instead, this episode has a little bit of everything: non-fiction books that help us make sense of it all, sci-fi books that help us escape from it all, as well as poetry collections, comedies, fun romps, and so much more.
