Privilege + Nomading

Contemplating privilege while overlooking the Amalfi Coast.

This week’s a big one. We talk about privilege in the nomad world!

  • “Anyone can be a digital nomad if they try hard enough” - can they though?

  • We hear from Chrys, Pauline and LaToya, who wade into the waters of digital nomad privilege

  • Privilege 101: we all have some kind of privilege over someone else

  • We quote from White privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack

  • We dig into all the ways we can think of that we have privilege. Strap in!

  • BTW, we allude to but don’t specifically address the issue of straight privilege. (But we know we’ve got it!)
