The Getaway Podcast
Getaway is a new company that aims to inject city-dwellers with a much-needed dose of nature and solitude. They do it by renting tiny cabins in the woods. And get this: there’s NO wifi. We created Getaway’s first-ever podcast and recorded it out of their tiny house in Downtown Brooklyn.
