Excellent production value & fun travel experiences

Mark and David explore some of the most interesting destinations on the planet in their travel episodes. I love how they record in the middle of their travels so that you can hear the sounds of each city. It feels like you're right there with them. The quality of the production is top-notch as they seemlessly transition from one experience to another. I subscribe and so should you.
