Full Show Script

  • EVO: Our travel itinerary over the next few months is going to be a little on the crazy side, with a half dozen countries on our agenda. That doesn't leave us a lot of time to be stationary and produce a new quality episode for you each week. Instead, we're going to focus on capturing content. Content we'll share with you as part of the second season of The Opportunistic Travelers Podcast this fall.

  • SHE: But don't worry: We're not leaving you without weekly content. And we're not re-running old episodes. We've collected lots of audio over the last seven months (holy shit, seven months) that hasn't made it on our weekly show, simply due to our self-imposted time limit.

  • EVO: Starting in about 30 seconds, you'll get one previously unreleased clip from our past experiences, and then we'll end the episode. And that will continue every week until we come back with full episodes in the fall.

  • SHE: Like this one, that showcases how Thai people keep their beer from going hot. Trigger warning, craft beer nerds: This one will hurt your soul a little.

  • [Literally ice cold beer]

  • EVO: But of course we couldn't leave Thailand without trying it the way they drink it. Yep. Watered down beer. Well, even more so than Singah normally resembles watered down beer. Ice just makes it colder and wetter, which is strange to say but kinda works. Cheers from Thailand!

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

  • EVO: Give us five bucks, and we'll send you a hand-written 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!
