Josie Stevens is my guest today. Josie is the wife, manager and traveling partner of her GRAMMY award winning husband guitarist Steve Stevens. After having Steve on the podcast I thought it would be great to speak with the other half of the team.
“I just love people in general. I love just chatting and hearing what people have to say. I feel that’s my favorite thing about travel”
I hadn’t spoken with the spouse of a business traveler yet and Josie was great. We spoke about her love of travel, her favorite places and why and other random topics including the newly in place shelter at home order we are all dealing with now. Make sure to listen about “squeaky” boobs when she travels to higher altitudes.
