Just happened upon this podcast...

...looking for more information about Liberia. Now I’ve listened to all the episodes because I love learning more about little known places! After each episode, I look at their YouTube links which usually leads me down a rabbit hole watching travel documentaries. I listened to the Utah episode before I went there this year and was spitting facts I learned in this podcast the whole trip. Def worth a listen!

Fabulous show!

I've been listening for a few years and the hosts do a great job presenting the histories in compelling but balanced ways. The music choices are often times excellent and the diversity of locations is insightful. I would highly recommend!

Deeply researched and highly engaging!

I can’t recommend this podcast enough. The hosts do a deep, deep dive into the far-flung locales they spotlight. Ever informative and always entertaining.
