Technology + Disconnection 

City + Nature

Work + Leisure 

We'll Focus on Three Themes  

Why Make a Podcast?

The digital age has taken away our sense of balance. We are over-connected, overworked, and always on. We rarely experience the joy of solitude or the respite of nature. In this new podcast from Getaway, we have deep conversations guests from our cabin house studio on three themes: technology & disconnection; city & nature; and work & leisure. Listen to learn the hard data on the imbalance and its dangers with examples of cultural initiatives countering the imbalance, plus concrete tips about how to build the counterbalance in your own life.
