Pretty good content, not very polished
There are some good nuggets of info and ideas, but the amount of interrupting and "yeah, yeah, yes, right"s makes it hard to listen sometimes. A little more practice and production attention might help the smoothness and listenability.
If your friends don't AirBnb...
Are you the only person in your circle who hosts on AirBnb? Nobody to talk to about your quirky job as a host? This podcast fills the void! They have hosts on as guests and the vent and ponder the same things you are experiencing. They have a phone number they solicit feedback on and incorporate your content into their shows. This couple host offsite for "entire home", they do everything top notch. If you prefer quality over quantity, this is your discussion. They are currently renovating the 2nd home they purchased exclusively for short term rental (AirBnb & other listing sites). It's nice to have someone to listen too, when you are the lone host.
One of My Favorites
I really like Jay and Ryanne, the two hosts of this podcast. They provide a wealth of tips and advice on renting a home. I enjoy listening to their progress as they renovate their newest house and get it ready to rent. Stories about the renters (good and bad) are always a blast to listen to. The podcast is full of tips and anecdotes. Anytime you have a question you can call their 800 number and they always answer the question in a future podcast . I always wait eagerly for the latest episode of this podcast and the adventures of those two young entrepreneurs.
