Listen to the Interview


Kari & KellyHello, and welcome to The Remote Podcast Episode 33. This podcast is all about location independence, digital nomadism, and living life on your terms.
Each week we interview a new guest on the show, and this week was a bit special because I sat down with two guests: Kari DePhillips and Kelly Chase, cohosts of the Workationing podcast. The two of them are traveling to 12 countries in 12 months this year to experience the digital nomad lifestyle.
To start, I loved this interview. Kari and Kelly are a bunch of fun! They first shared how they came up with the idea of going on workation, before sharing their wacky and crazy adventures so far in Puerto Rico and Medellin, Colombia. In fact, we spend the vast majority of the interview on their stories.
The interview went by so quick and it inspired me to make the most out of my travels for the next few months! Without further ado, let’s jump right into it.
