Travel long enough and you'll have a funny story to tell. But when comedians travel, their stories are that much funnier. Listen each week to hear how comedians adapt to the quirks that life tends to throw in our paths when we leave our comfort zone for a little adventure. A little too much, perhaps. Hosted by Evo Terra and Sheila Dee (collectively ShEvo) with (in)frequent guest appearances by other funny people.

Let these guys do the heavy lifting!
I really like traveling the world with Evo and Sheila without spending a nickel. And, I can get inside tips of where to visit (or not), what to eat (or not), and what form of public transportation I should take.
This is what I call frictionless travel.
Loving this podcast!
Evo and Sheila bring their 10+ years of combined podcasting experience to this show, giving it a high level of professional polish. They tell interesting, funny stories about their travel adventures by combining studio-recorded commentary with live recordings made while out and about. The live audio segments make you feel like you're right there next to them wherever they are. I give a hearty "Bravo" to ShEvo Studios!
This is really cool! Thanks for sharing your journey with us. I can't wait to hear what happens next! Have fun!! - Jaime Jay
