Why Is Foreign Language Education A Foreign Idea In America? [S5E13]
Did you miss us? We missed you. And we wish we could say that to you in a foreign language. But since we’re proud Americans the grew up in the ‘80s, we don’t speak any other language but one. And poorly at that!

This podcast is so much fun! I love the chill vibe and the entertaining stories that Evo, Sheila & their guests have to share. Looking forward to many more episodes from this podcast!
Just Like Being There!
What a fun podcast! You get to listen to this cool adventure with a couple of people who very quickly have you feeling like you’re a best friend traveling with them. I love that this isn’t a super clean, polished, in-studio accounting of what happened. Instead, the mic is right there with Evo and Sheila as things happen: rain, beer tasting, thieving monkeys, wild rides, beer tasting, wildlife…did I mention beer tasting? The podcast is a total bast. Listen in for a few episodes and I’m sure you’ll end up feeling just like you’re there with them.
Fun and adventurous world travelers
I’ve really become wrapped up in finding out where, what and who these two will be getting into next. Interesting people on an adventure of a lifetime.
