Full Show Script

  • EVO: Due to our own self-imposed time constraints, I'm not always able to put in all the choice bits we record as we travel. This series of mini, interstitial shows has helped with that, and this week's show is no exception. Beer factors heavily into our travels, which often causes us to seek out iconic watering holes. The search for these hidden gems...

  • SHE: Just stop. [sigh] We were looking for an inn called... The Cock. [sigh] And now, I'll let Evo embrace his inner 12-year-old. Sorry in advance, ladies. Or anyone who's come to expect quality discourse from this show.

  • [the cock]

  • EVO: Astute listeners will notice part of that last bit was used as the intro to our April 15th episode. Now, you have it in context. Cheers from the road!

  • SHE: Funding for our endless world tour is provided, oddly enough, by postcards.

  • EVO: Give us five bucks, and we'll send you a postcard from our travels abroad every single month. Get on the list at

  • SHE: And we save a ton of money by housesitting. It's free and beats living in hotels. Want super cool people like us looking after your pets and property while you're traveling? Visit to register, either as a housesitter or a home owner. We do it, and we love it! Thanks for listening to this episode. I’m Sheila Dee. 

  • EVO: And I am Evo Terra. Our theme music is by Kevin MacLeod at All other sounds, voices, and odd bits you hear were most likely created or captured by us. Visit to get more goodness from us and to see where opportunity will take us next. Thanks for again for listening and tell a friend about us. Now would be good.

New episodes of the The Opportunistic Travelers Podcast are available every Tuesday. Of course, Tuesday can be a very different thing depending on where we are in the world. Cheers!
