It’s time to talk about travel shaming. This concept may not be new, but it has taken on a life of its own this year. From shaming people flying across the country to taking a road trip across a state, the keyboard warriors are there to ensure that people feel bad about it.

But travel right now is SUPER complicated. Many people don’t know the full story of why someone is traveling, their transportation situation, what they’re doing, what precautions they’re taking, etc. Sure, there are definitely people out there throwing caution to the wind right now, but based on this article by Business Insider, travel shaming isn’t stopping people from travel, it is just making them hide it.

So in this episode we’re having a conversation about travel shaming: what is it? Is it effective? What to do instead? How to avoid it, and more.
