Airbnb has completely revolutionized tourism, but the legal and regulatory battles around who you can rent your room to rage on.

This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) speak with Evelyn Badia, an Airbnb “Superhost” who makes her living by renting her home to strangers—often while she’s still in it.

She shares what makes a great host and how the rise of Trump changed New York tourism.
