In Defense Of Staycations

By Stephanie Seferian

Have a summer trip planned? You're not alone. For many, traveling has become more lifestyle than luxury: in the time it takes you to read this blurb over 2,000 people will have arrived in a foreign country and a quarter of a million dollars will have been spent by Americans abroad. Staycations are emerging in popularity as a hassle-free and environmentally friendly way to holiday. And if you need more convincing, today's conversation with podcaster Chris Christou outlines why being a better tourist starts at home.    Here's a preview:   [8:00] Connections between the tourism industry and late stage capitalism   [10:45] Eco-tourism is an oxymoron! (And other greenwashing examples)   [24:00] Airbnb’s cultural consequences   [31:00] 3 research-backed tips for making the most of your next staycation   Resources mentioned: The End of Tourism podcast How to Make a Staycation Feel Like an Actual Break (via New York Times) -- Join our (free!) community here.
