The World Nomads Podcast is not your usual podcast. This week, they discuss the movements of your bowel as you travel around the world. Stay classy, guys.
In this episode of the World Nomads Podcast, we explore traveller’s diarrhoea, colloquially known as Bali Belly, Delhi Belly, The Pharaoh’s Curse, Montezuma’s Revenge or The Rangoon Runs.
Whatever you call it, it’s no fun being caught short. Warning this podcast is not suitable for sensitive ears as it contains explicit language.
Jane Wilson-Howarth discusses her bestseller ‘How to Shit Around the World: The Art of Staying Clean and Healthy While Traveling’. In the book, Dr Wilson-Howarth explores “such issues as sanitising unhealthy water, safely consuming exotic foods, avoiding dehydration, keeping good hygiene on the road, and immunisation”.
Some money quotes from the pod:
“Peel it, boil it, cook it, or forget it.” – Dr Jane Wilson Howarth.
“Ah, perfect. I’m going to go behind the boulder. It’s just far enough away that no one will know what I’ve done, I hope.” – Jarryd Salem, one half of NOMADasaurus with his partner Alesha Bradford.
“… because it is so small, it makes it really difficult for most water treatment devices to remove virus from water, and so what you need is a purifier that specifically goes after virus.” – Travis Merrigan, co-founder of GRAYL.
“I have a book out also which has nothing to do with shit, it’s about autonomous cars, but you can read it while defecating. So buy the book, and then defecate for long periods of time while reading it.” – Jason Torchinsky, senior editor of Jalopnik.
The World Nomads Podcast is not your usual podcast. It’s everything for the adventurous, independent traveller.
