Absolutely Fantastic!

This is the perfect podcast for me to listen to at work. It combines history, travel, and food. Each podcast covers a different wonder. Drew gives you the history behind it sometimes including a guest speaker. He then talks about how you would travel to the wonder in the present day, He ends the episode with a local recipe which he also posts on the podcast's website.
I love the pace of this podcast and all the recipes. Now I want to travel to all of the places Drew's talked about.

One of the best

What makes Wonders of the World podcast stand out is the level of research and detail that goes into each episode while still being accessible. Drew makes an effort to work with diverse voices and experts and combines storytelling and research into a podcast like any other. It’s fantastic and I tune into each episode religiously!

Love it!

This podcast is amazing! It combines all of my own personal interests, from art history to architecture, nature, travel, and even quotes from my favorite movie of all time, the Princess Bride. I have been listening non stop ever since I discovered it. Keep up the great work Drew!
