ShEvo vs The First World has launched!

Season five of our podcast series is finally here! We're calling it ShEvo vs. The First World, and it's all about our critique on Western civilization, formed mainly from living in a developing nation the better part of three years.

It's a bit of a blend of travel, skepticism, and the witty(?) banter you've come to expect from us. New episodes will (should?) drop weekly and will often feature an expert opinion to back up what bugs us about first world living.

If you were already subscribed to our previous seasons; no change is necessary for you. In fact, you shouldn't be surprised to learn this, as the episode dropped a week ago. 

If you haven't yet subscribed to our podcast, it's easy on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, or where ever you enjoy podcasts.

Here's the first episode. Enjoy! 

The Party Isn't Over. It's Just In A New Time Zone

If you've been following us on our social properties or listening to the podcast, you already know this. But for those who haven't yet heard the news...

We're headed back to America!

No, it wasn't for an international incident. We didn't become political refugees of Thailand. We weren't even asked to leave.

Our son, NJ, has decided to make us grandparents! Our first granddaughter is set to arrive sometime in late July, and neither of us want to be absentee grandparents. So I'm writing you this missive from a cafe in Beijing as we make our last-hurrah of Asian countries. Japan and Korea are up next.

But just because we're going to be headed back, it doesn't mean our life of travel is over. Far from it. Now that we know how dead simple it is to travel the world, we've no intentions of stopping. It's just that the new kid -- we'll call her Bali -- takes priority, and that naturally changes things for us.

Yes, we'll restart the podcast when we get back. And yes, you might even see a new blog post or two coming as well. Stay tuned!

You Can’t Opt Out Of Religion In SE Asia

You Can’t Opt Out Of Religion In SE Asia

Well someone woke up on the wrong side of the manger today, and just in time for Xmas. After living in SE Asia for the better part of two years, Evo’s kinda done with being surrounded by religion, and religion is an inescapable part of every culture in this part of the world. As he explains in the episode, his malaise started with a visit to Angkor Wat, festered living in Thailand, and came to a head as he slammed through three different religious cultures in Indonesia.
