    INTERVIEW: Starting an AirBnB Cohosting Business – PART 2 of 3

    INTERVIEW: Starting an AirBnB Cohosting Business – PART 2 of 3

    In part two of three, Ray and Vanessa, dig deeper into what it took to get their AirBnB business off the ground. We do a deep dive into marketing efforts, the value of being a familiar part of the local community and providing that ten star experience. Also, the alcohol starts kicking in. Keep an ear out for accidental Freudian slips and/or the verbal dyslexia that is starting to build as we continue on our sonic journey to financial independence.

    INTERVIEW: Starting an AirBnB Cohosting Business - PART 1 of 3

    Ray and Vanessa, founders of Home Sweet Hudson, give us a candid look into the early days of quitting their jobs to start an AirBnB concierge service in New York. This was recorded just weeks before Ray proposed to Vanessa in Florence, Italy. Add a few really nice bottles of Malbec and we've got the perfect first interview for the Keeping Wanderlust podcast. Tune in next week for part two of the series.

    Sun, Suds, and Sweathers in SoFlo

    Sun, Suds, and Sweathers in SoFlo

    In this episode: Basically an hour of conversation that covers the entire depth of our knowledge relating to Florida (spoiler alert, we don’t much at all). Way too much discussion about the weather. Kris’ poor attempt at an Australian accent. Six foot rats. Bathroom selfies. Docents. Comparing cost of living in Florida versus New York City; thought exercise about whether we should throw away our corporate rat-race lives and buy a bar in Key West. Obligatory eye-rolling from Kayla when Kris refers to Floridians as “those people.” The word Sweather is invented. Getting dressed up to go to Starbucks. The verb HAM is abused (it’s used one time). Kris tosses in his emphatic “hands down” or “no joke” award at least half a dozen times. A particular focus on one of the most unique cities in America that just so happens to exist in Florida. Two pitchers of sangria is better than one. Recap of the time Kayla got Kris to go on a five hour bike ride in Florida heat. Tips for driving from Miami to Key West.

    Kayla tempts fate and gives the karma gods the finger by saying, out loud, that she’s never missed a flight, in spite of cutting it too close, more times than she can count. Kris shares homicide fantasies involving Disney characters. (Probably should have cut that out in post production).

    Kris’ rant this week about VCRs in the 90s that would auto-rewind and replay tapes on loop if never ejected.

    Farting at Weddings

    Farting at Weddings

    Kris and Kayla record on location from their balcony at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale the day after they attend the wedding of close friends Patrick and Amanda. Tune in for tips on what not to eat the night before your wedding, multiple rants from Kris surrounding dealing with wedding venue contracts and climbing stairs, and a preview of upcoming marathon day in New York City.



    Fun fact: Kris and Kayla sound particularly off in this episode. Kris was just starting to come down with a head cold and Kayla’s voice was all raspy from screaming at the top of her lungs the night before while she was on the dance floor.

    Wedding Shopping in Southern California

    Wedding Shopping in Southern California

    This week Kris and Kayla take their show on the road and record on Venice Beach. Discussion covers the various venues they sampled in and around Santa Monica and how they came a full 180 degrees from their original vision of the type of wedding they wanted. Stick around for an inside look into what was the beginning of the electric scooter craze, what it’s like growing up in Southern California, a couple of restaurants to check out, and our overrated/underrated game at the end.

    Spoiler alert: Pretty much everything Kris and Kayla took a hard stance on in this episode they eventually flip-flopped on. Little did they know that the venue they both decided on in this episode is not where they would eventually get married. Check out future episodes to hear the saga about negotiating the contract. Additionally, neither one of them had ridden one of those electric scooters yet even though they were against them. Finally, the Killer Shrimp restaurant that Kris remembered from his years living here wasn’t the same anymore. They did get a chance to go to the new location the restaurant moved to, but they both agreed that there was clearly something lacking when they left.

Funny, intertaining podcast

What a fun, relatable couple. Their witty banter and genuine style makes for easy listening. Highly recommend!

Cute, funny and sometimes informative

Only listened to the trailer and the ‘Farting at Weddings’ espies odes so far, but it sounds like these two have some genuine chemistry. We need more long form, honest conversations, on the air like this. Hope you guys keep this going. Can’t wait to listen to the others.
