What If You Live Nowhere? #VanLife

Podcast cover
Read more

What if the answer isn’t choosing where to live, but rather choosing to live nowhere? Gaby speaks to Rachel Wilson and Natalie Frizza, two members of Australia’s nomad community -- people who have chosen to live and raise kids in converted campers, vans and buses. Gaby explores what that daily life looks like, the cost of living and who tends to be able to experience that lifestyle. (Hint: White people, mostly.) Then, she talks to Melody Warnick, author of This Is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are about the concept of “home.” Trigger Warning: Brief misophonia around 31 minutes in. (Sorry! It’s short!)
