Bonus episode 4. Olivia. Madagascar. July 2023.  Scene B1:1OLIVIA …and that’s it I suppose. (slightly sad smile) My final episode from Madagascar. (clears throat) I’ve had some listener questions, mostly about what will happen to the podcast now that I’ll be moving again. (smiles) Don’t worry, podcasting is practically part of my DNA after all these years. I’ll continue the Y2K23 podcast wherever I go, and Tammi and Becca will keep guesting when they can. However, if you’ve been listening to the Adalatherium podcast you know that we are handing it over to the new group of interns, and I for one will definitely be listening to hear all about their discoveries. This… It’s hard to believe this internship has only been ten months. It’s been… everything I could have hoped for. I have learnt so much. (slight laugh) Not just about fieldwork and excavation, but specifically about late Cretaceous vertebrate animals, all of which is fascinating – I feel like my mind has expanded to five times its size! (beat, more serious) And my heart, too… Being here, working here, living here, making friends… It’s been… feels trite to say, but… It changed me. Changed my perspective, mostly on myself, I think. I was talking to one of my newer friends the other day, and saying how much I would miss Madagascar, and all my friends here, when I leave. She asked if I was going home. And I… I didn’t know what to say. What is home, for me? Most people have an easy answer to that, but me? Is it Birmingham? I only lived there for three years. Ireland? Since mum moved I don’t really have a connection anymore. Brighton, maybe? Grew up there, but don’t really have any ties left there either… And I’ve still never been to Canada… Suppose I should put Edmonton on my list of places to visit, but home? No. I suppose the… fleetingness of all this is one reason my parents’ divorce hit me so hard. I don’t know if I will ever feel completely at home anywhere. (small smile) On the other hand, I can feel nearly at home in many places… It’s as though I have little pieces of home all over the world. Suppose that makes me lucky. (lets out breath) And so – all of this rambling is leading somewhere, I swear! – I don’t know if I am going home. But as I told my friend I am going somewhere that, for me, feels more like home than anywhere else. (big smile) It is finally settled. (deep breath) I’m going back to New Zealand. Back to Auckland. I’ve really missed living there. I have another internship lined up starting in August, and hopefully I can go back to uni and work toward a PhD sometime within the next few years. Of course it doesn’t hurt that both my parents are there now… As well as aunt Bri [Bree] and uncle Antonio. (quickly)  Though, no, my parents aren’t back together! (smile) I could feel you starting to write that question, listeners… I’ve stopped hoping for that. Well. Mostly stopped. At this point I’m just happy they are friends, and are able to be there for each other. I am looking forward to spending time with both of them, and all of my other relatives and friends… (lighter) But before all of that I’ll be hanging out with Tammi and Becca in Paris – for two whole weeks! Yes! I am so excited! So you can expect at least one podcast episode with the three of us talking over each other and laughing a lot, maybe we’ll get some of Tammi’s old friends to join us too… (deep breath) Right. I really have to go now. Thank you so much for listening. And… (smiles) Kia ora!  Scene B4:2 NARRATOR Thank you for listening to this bonus episode of Y2K: Take 2.
