I’m always glad I listened.
Each time I listen to one of Matt’s podcasts, I’m always glad I spent the time listening - even when at the onset, the subject line didn’t necessarily grab me.
It’s refreshing to listen to someone who comes across (and presumably is) knowledgeable, approachable, humorous, thoughtful and engaging.
From my perspective as a travel advisor, I appreciate Matt’s exploration of the world and the perspective he brings to his listeners, especially in this time of pandemic, when for many would be travelers, this is a time to keep the dream of travel alive especially when you can’t get to where you really want to go. Matt’s topics and guests provide that kind of inspiration.
Wonderful travel podcast
I love listening to this podcast when I need a little escape and just want to dream about where I’m traveling to next! The host is incredibly articulate, well-researched and smart, his content is approachable and broad, and each episode is crisp and on point (and sometimes hilarious.) Thank you, Matt, for the work that you do, especially in these uncertain times!!
Like a warm cinnamon bun on a fall day
I have an insatiable appetite for podcasts, and Explore the World has quickly become one of my favorites. Matt does an amazing job taking the listener to various destinations, and interviewing travel experts in-tune with those locales. Each episode is fresh and entertaining. I get excited each week when I get the notification that a new episode has been released. So glad I found this one.
