Informative and fun

The Hosting Journey is fun to listen to as well as being informative.

One track conversation

What a missed opportunity and disappointing listen. The founder of AirDNA, a program that can help Airbnb users intelligently grow their business, was interviewed and instead of asking questions about his valuable tool all she could talk about was regulation and NYC, even after he explained more than once that the trends are in secondary markets. Such a missed opportunity for valuable insight!

Great resource!

Evelyn is interesting and informative. A great resource for a new air BnBer. I like that the episodes are short and to the point!
