YROT Episode 6: Van Life, but Make It 90's

On this episode our host Taylor talks with adventure couple Candice and Jordan. They've traveled a good chunk of the Western Hemisphere in their right-hand drive, no a/c '97 Mitsubishi Delica, and chronicle their travels as @beoldlater on Instagram. Like many other nomadic folks we've talked to, they're hunkered down at their parents' house while in an effort to limit travel during the pandemic. Topics of discussion include: string theory, near-death experiences, reptilian conspiracies, treasure hunts, and the best (and worst) places to poop when you're traveling the country by van. There's also a special celebrity guest appearance towards the end of the interview.
