In June, Airbnb announced that it was seeking 12 people from around the world to live exclusively in Airbnb listings for approximately one year -- all paid for by Airbnb, as part of the “Live Anywhere on Airbnb” program.

Airbnb on Tuesday shared that it has selected those 12 individuals to live anywhere on Airbnb, out of more than 314,000 applicants globally.

One of those lucky participants is Stephanie, who hails from Chattanooga. An Airbnb Superhost herself, Stephanie is a dedicated world traveler - she and her husband Peter have been to nearly 50 countries together. While she’s no stranger to Airbnb, she’s never had the opportunity to experience long-term travel on the platform, so this fall she, Peter and their two-year-old son will embark on their greatest adventure as a family, all while continuing their hosting journey. 

Along with living on Airbnb, the participants will share their experiences with Airbnb along the way to help inform future product upgrades and innovations on the platform to better accommodate nomadic living.

Pretending Is Dangerous - And Response

I’ve ‘seen some stuff’ in my time. I have followed politics for many years. I’m retired, I’m a realist and a Vietnam veteran, pretty much in that order. I’m not an alarmist or a conspiracy theorist. That said, I have never in my life been so concerned about the future of this Republic. Politics was once a legitimate contest of ideas, put forth by political figures who were sincere, ...
