80 Days is a podcast dedicated to exploring little-known countries, territories settlements and cities around the world. We're part history podcast, part geography podcast and part ramble. Each episode, we'll land in a new locale and spend some time discussing the history, geography, culture, sport, religion, industry, pastimes and music of our new location.

it's damp... fun!
Hearing 3 Irish guys talk about random world locations? Yes, please! Very enjoyable to listen to while doing boring things at work... you won't be disappointed!
A joy and an education
Bravi, and encore! If you're looking to better understand the planet you live on, I should say that 80 Days offers well-nigh unrivaled return on the investment of half an hour. Very pleasant, very informative; if these three bold explorers follow this concept for, shall we say, two hundred-ish episodes, they shall have created a unique trove of entertainment and learning.
Informative and fun
80 Days: An Exploration Podcast is a very enjoyable format. The hosts have good chemistry, and their episodes are well planned and educational. If you enjoy traveling the world, plan on traveling the world, or like to learn obscure world history, you need to subscribe to this podcast.
