After 30 years together, spanning dozens of countries across four different continents, Sheila Dee and Evo Terra have collected their fair share of funny stories. On season four of This One Time, they're using those stories to answer relationship questions from their global network of fans. Licensed therapists? Nope. Clearly not. But funny, to be sure!

It’s almost impossible not to learn things as you travel. After traveling to 20 different countries as we’ve lived as expats for over 3 years, we’ve racked up quite a few memories and life-lessons we’ll take back with us to America. On this, the final episode of the 4th season of podcast, we’ll list the major life lessons each of us has learned ...…
 
In the three years we’ve been traveling the world, we’ve eaten some weird food. But what’s the most bizarre food we’ve encountered. That’s the question we’re answering on this, the penultimate episode of Season 4 of our comedy/travel/advice podcast. (Don’t worry: Season 5 is right around the corner.) For Sheila, the answer was mashed potatoes c ...…
 
If you haven't heard the news, we’re going to be grandparents in the next few months. So of course, the most important thing we have to decide is the names we want this new kid to call us. Today on the program we’ll detail all the names we’ve considered, settling on a few we’d be happy with. We found a few lists of trendy names for grandparents ...…
 
Listener Tiffany from Puerto Rico wants to know what we think about this racist, ignorant map that supposedly denotes how Americans really view the world. Now obviously, we don’t like it, and Tiffany wasn’t looking for us to confirm its accuracy. So we take it as a springboard to talk about the realities of terrible geographic knowledge that pl ...…
 
Recorded live on location at Save Our Souls after probably too many beers, Evo goes on a tear about the English alphabet. What predicated this outrage/outburst? Learning the Thai alphabet, obviously. (Don’t worry about the incorrect number of Thai consonants and vowels Evo says on the show. Did we mention he’d been drinking?) Linguists probably ...…
 
Today’s show was inspired from Maria, who asked the following: “I wanted to ask your opinion on [NAME REDACTED] travel writer's program. As a travel writer, do you think this program is a good investment?” Without any personal experience with the travel program in question, we decided to reinterpret her question as: “Should I pay good money to ...…
 
When we booked a private Estonian sauna for a couple of hours in Estonia, we knew it was a perfect time to reflect on the best parts of our trip to Tallinn thus far. Even though there was beer involved (are you surprised?) we managed not to ruin our equipment as we recorded in the super-hot sauna or bubbling jacuzzi. But if you get hungry liste ...…
 
We’re in Estonia traveling and really hadn’t intended to put out a show from the road. But on Christmas Eve, we were entertained by a drunken Finn named Miiko at one of Tallinn’s most notorious dive bar, Valli Baar. As our xmas present to you, we chopped the 48 minute rambling down to 5 of the better minutes. You wanted authentica travel storie ...…
 
A not very funny thing happened on the way to pick up gifts for our supporters: Evo got into a motorcycle accident. As a passenger in an Uber in a very Thai neighborhood of Bangkok. How does a passenger in the back of a car find himself a player in a motorbike crash? Like we said, it’s not a funny story. Hopefully it has a happy ending. Got a q ...…
 
Hello vicarious travelers and welcome to Airlie Beach, Australia! We haven’t actually seen all that much, as we’ve been playing catchup from the prior six weeks of nearly non-stop travel. Welcome to the realities of a life living abroad: sometimes, you have to work. Even in paradise. There are actually two ways to get the show early: If you wan ...…
 
Things are getting busy here at ShEvo Studios, as Evo’s picking up a few podcasting clients. Hooray for additional income! And hooray for the new podcasts he’s helping to launch. We’ll talk more about them in the coming weeks, obviously. We have two travel stories to share on today’s program, one about recent trip to Chiang Rai and one from Eng ...…
 
Full Show Script [fundamentally wrong] EVO: If you had to pick a time to travel northern Europe, you probably wouldn't pick winter. But we're owning the name The Opportunistic Travelers, and this is where the opportunity took us. SHE: And it's not like we were at the North Pole or anything. Compared to The northeastern part of The States, it's ...…
 
Full Show Script EVO: We're still between seasons, here at The Opportunistic Traveler's podcast, but still have plenty of unreleased audio to share with you while we work on Season Two content. SHE: When we were in Denmark, we noticed two things: Beer is expensive, and their version of pool is really, really strange. Here's our friend Jens, a D ...…
 
Opportunity has brought us to Sydney, Australia, where we’re busy soaking up the sights in between freak rainstorms down under! Special thanks to our gracious hosts Kevin and Imp for giving us a cheap (read: FREE!) place to stay in one of the world’s most expensive cities. Kevin’s a body painter, and you can check out his work (which often feat ...…
 
This week we’re thrilled to report that our constant quest for quality beer has been fulfilled! Though we still have to pay the annoying 400% import tax, we’ve started getting beer deliveries from Wishbeer. A few clicks on our phone and a motorscooter shows up an hour later with a dozen quality craft beers for us, chilled and ready to drink! An ...…
 
Full Show Script [permit only] EVO: Today is the final day of our stay in Knutsford. As you've heard and seen, we've made fast and hopefully long lasting friends with of many of the locals. SHE: According to those friends, we've achieved minor celebrity status. More than once this week, we were approached by locals stating "Oh, you're the Ameri ...…
 
Full Show Script EVO: I'm going to apologize now. If you're squeamish about bats, this unreleased clip from our travels in Thailand is going to freak you all the way out. SHE: He's not joking. About 50 kilometers north of Ranong is Phra Khayang, or just the Bat Cave. I know what you're thinking: All caves have bats. True. But this cave -- which ...…
 
This episode mixes beer and finance in one unexpected little package, with stories told in Hue, Vietnam and in Hong Kong. It’s just over 14 minutes long, so listen and enjoy! (Side note: We Periscoped the recording of the first part of the show, and we might do that every week! So give us a follow and you can watch live!) If you were a fans of ...…
 
It’s hot in Bangkok. Like… always hot. Which is why so many tourists and expats walk around in shorts and tank-tops all the time. But now that we have an actual closet, it’s rather nice to wear clothes that we actually care about. That, and we don’t want to get mistaken for backpackers or sexpats. Still, it’s a little strange for Evo to declare ...…
 
Full Show Script [idiots] EVO: We're still in Knutsford, a small town outside of Manchester. That strangely enough has a McLaren, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and Land Rover dealership. Crazy! SHE: This last week took us to several different cities in north western England. In Chester, we drank and ate at The Brewery Tap. They have a decent beer selec ...…
 
Full Show Script EVO: Hey, thanks for hanging in there with us as we're in between seasons. This week, we're taking you back about a month with an another un-aired clip from our adventures in Thailand, where we've been the last 3 months. SHE: We half expected our quick trip to Phuket in July to be not all that much different than the time we'd ...…
 
Full Show Script EVO: This is it. This is the final mini, interstitial show. Next week, I am stoked to announce, will be the first episode of season two of The Opportunistic Travelers Podcast. SHE: Thank you so much for staying subscribed to the show during our break. We really enjoyed producing these mini episodes, but we're really looking for ...…
 
We know you love keeping up with us on the podcast, but you can get an almost-live look at our lives here in Bangkok on Evo’s Snapchat account! Though we’ve both had accounts there for a while, it took some time before we figured out how great the platform actually is at sharing our lives here in Bangkok. So while yes, it’s just one more place ...…
 
Full Show Script [confused] EVO: This week's show is going to be short and sweet. As much as I really wanted our 10th episode to be The Perfect Show, it's just not going to happen this week. SHE: It's not that great things didn't happen to us this week. It just that, well... we kinda forgot to record them. EVO: We, apparently, are poor audio jo ...…
 
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 pa ...…
 
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 sear ...…
 
Hello and welcome again to our life here in Bangkok, Thailand! We know that getting us in your ears every week satisfies your curiosity to a certain level, but sometimes pictures work really, really well. Sheila’s added some 2,000 photos to Flickr since our travels began, and has hundreds available from our life here in Bangkok. Really, you sho ...…
 
Four days in Brussels with Evo fighting a cold isn't the best time ever. Still, we got out, did some things, and made it to England. Along the way, we managed to get some recording done, too!
 
Full Show Script [Thai translated] EVO: As you heard in the opening clip, I got a new tattoo about a month ago. I've been considering it since before we left The States, and decided to pull the trigger here in Thailand. SHE: Seriously, that's a pretty weak pun, dude. EVO: Noted. SHE: Woodee from 84 Tattoo Andaman Ink -- that probably rolls off ...…
 
Full Show Script EVO: In case I haven't said it loud enough, putting together episodes in our format takes a lot of time. We're now 10 weeks into our between-seasons break, and I'm racking up multiple hours of audio to log. Oy. Who thought this was a good idea? SHE: As much as Evo bitches about it, he really does enjoy going through all the aud ...…
 
Greetings one and all to another show from Bangkok, Thailand. We’re now in our third month living as expats and couldn’t be happier. Well, I mean… We probably could be if more people signed up to get a postcard from us each month, but we’re pretty happy. We share two other stories on today’s program, one from Thailand and another from Taiwan: 1 ...…
 
Hjortur conducted a video interview with me, and I nabbed a little audio with him as well. The clip will do a much better job of explaining why, if you go to Copenhagen, you probably should get to NOHO and grab a coffee with Hjörtur and see what amazing things he's up to.
 
Full Show Script [Less of Me] EVO: If Phuket has a ubiquitous tourist attraction, it's elephant trekking. Billboards, in-hotel pamphlets, official-looking street signs... the message is clear. No trip to Phuket is complete without an elephant encounter. SHE: Rides on the backs of these majestic giants are offered by tour operators large and sma ...…
