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.

Biased as Matt is my Friend but Genuinely Love It

In full disclosure, Matt is my friend and a colleague in the travel industry. So of course I was going to listen in to see what the podcast is like and I did think I would like it. But I'm blown away by how much I enjoy listening to 'Explore the World with Matt Long'. He's got a wonderful voice that's enjoyable to listen to. He picks his topics and his guests well and he's sharing information that's not on other podcasts! I definitely recommend it.
