Really fun Podcast

Love how the hosts travel around and talk to people. If more people did this, America (and the world) would be much less divided. Fun and informative!

Worth a listen to expand your mind

The Trip has long been one of my favorite podcasts. I thoroughly enjoy listening to the various perspectives and insights from around the globe concerning culture, food, current events, and just how people are getting through their day. Just relax, listen and open your mind to the views of people unlike yourself. You might find they are not all that different.

Reality mixed with hope

Thank you, Nathan, for keeping this podcast going during the pandemic. Your interview technique and narration somehow cast hope through harrowing experiences of real people. It helps during this very diffcult time.
