A great and thorough account of the craziness that is the Mongol Rally. I did it myself in 2012, and this brought back great memories. I liked how thoughtful it was, and how over the course of the trip they learned that people everywhere are fundamentally decent, and the world is not such a scary...Read full review »

After the first episode I was left feeling totally inspired and ready to sign up for the Rally myself! Great stories, great storytellers, keeps me laughing and awestruck. Really paints the picture of these countries without giving too much away.

I’m a little late, but I started listening to the Mongol Rally series just a week or so ago. I am drawn into it and can’t stop listening, or rather can’t wait to drive to work. I only listen to podcasts in the car and I find myself driving slower just to get to the end of the podcast! I don’t...Read full review »

I stumbled across this podcast after it was suggested by Planet Money and found it to be totally engrossing. 11,000 miles of adventure.

Found this via 99% invisible. Great account of the Mongol rally in season 1. Loved it.
Quadkkkk via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/17/19
Absolutely fascinating podcast. Worked my way here by way of 99 Percent Invisible who featured the episode on Northern Ireland. I’ve now nearly finished the first series detailing Scott’s experience on the Mongol Rally. The show has been engaging, relatable, amusing and insightful. If nothing...Read full review »

I’ve loved listening the Mongol Rally series! Epic adventure! One episode left. Will probably start again. Thanks!

I love this podcast! I heard Scott’s Chernobyl episode on 99% Invisible and then started listening to Season 1. I’m about halfway through now and can’t wait to hear what happens next...

I discovered this podcast through an episode played on 99PI and was so happy to have found it. I’m sorry I was too late to follow Season 1 closer to when it was happening but that did not diminish my excitement for each episode. I’m +60 and a bit afraid to venture outside the US but this makes me...Read full review »

This is a great way to learn about the creator’s time on the Mongol Rally. I like all of the extra detail that you get with an audio experience of the trip, as opposed to a shorter video series. I had never heard of the Mongol Rally until hearing about this podcast, but now I will have to do the...Read full review »

Best podcast I have ever lessened to, has made my commute to work over the last 2 weeks a lot more interesting.

I stumbled onto this podcast (not sure how) and I think this podcast is great. I got hooked on listening to each episode, and binged the whole series - twice! Great job! Looking forward to season 2!

I listened to S1 as I drove across the US and it brought me a lot of joy. The narrator’s voice is a little dry but the adventure makes up for it.
Andyviana via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/19
As a totally chicken who loves to hear about adventures this was just amazing to listen to. I loved all the planning, narration, mishaps, the brothers, the cars, and of course loved sugar and spice! It’s so thoughtful and thought provoking to hear about this diverse and amazing world we have at...Read full review »

Been thinking about doing the Mongol Rally for quite some time and so glad I came across Scott’s podcast! Not only is it high quality and sounds very professional, but it’s clear he’s put a lot of thought and care into creating it, not just after the fact but during the whole process. There are...Read full review »

I have followed Scott for years since he reported at Oklahoma. His reporting is ALWAYS honest, deep compelling and entertaining. So glad he did this!
edmond-mpw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/18
This podcast is an adventure with every episode. I've been enjoying getting to know the people and learn about countries that I've know little about. Truely a cultural and eye opening experience.
washforestlion via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/18/18
I found this podcast from the #2PodsADay campaign and I LOVE IT! I feel like I’m along for the ride with every episode, and I’m learning about a trip that I never knew was even possible (and now I want to do it.) Give it a listen and enjoy the 11,000 mile trip alongside these wonderful people!
Fuzzlyn989 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/18
I want to love this podcast. But the two guys in it are just so BORING! I feel like a jerk for saying it but - aargh! Can we please do another version of this adventure with the British ladies?! They sound like so much more FUN! I so wish I was in THEIR car! Listening to the two mopey...Read full review »

I’m a travel-podcaster and long time radio producer myself, so I love finding excellent storytelling and sound design like this. Can’t wait for more seasons. Best, Palle, The Radio Vagabond

I’ve been binge listening and I’m going to be very sad when I’m done. I hope we don’t have to wait long for the next trip!
SandyCPA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/18
What a great adventure. Scott brings you right into the scene. Car troubles (and there are many, corrupt police, greasy food and being stranded in a desolate, gravel road at 13,000 feet. Each podcast takes you further and further into these unknown and scary little towns, villages and wide...Read full review »

I’m currently bingeing on this podcast, and I think Scoot did a wonderful job of collecting stories and audio on the road. Must be his Public Radio background, but each story is fascinating, funny and leaves you wanting more.
jonbruck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/18
I have thoroughly enjoyed traveling along with Scott, Drew, Jane & Rosie through this podcast! Thank you, Scott, for your vivid descriptions, which make me feel I am right there with you on your amazing trip! I’m really looking forward to future episodes!

Great job making this! The Mongolian challenge is not on my bucket list.

Each episode is more immersive than the last. Such a wonderful journey.
dacsd1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/18
an adventure anyone whished to have the time & courage to do! wonderfully narated by Scott, he takes you into the ups & downs of the Mongolian Rally with his fun travelling partners.
Vazquezsary via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/18
This series makes you feel like you're along for the ride with Scott and Drew. I listen on the way to school and sometimes am tempted to keep driving past my exit. Maybe I'll drive to Mongolia instead of class on day? Excitedly waiting for the next episode. Keep up the great work!
Missyourturnonpurpose via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/17
I'm hooked! This podcast has something for everyone, especially if you love travel, adventure and meeting people around the world. As a middle aged women who loves travel - Rosi and Jane remind me that it's never too late to try something new, they're awesome! The Mongol Rally sounds so fun, ...Read full review »

Negative (geddit?) via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/28/17
This podcast tells the story of two brothers’ 11,000 mile road trip from London to Mongolia as part of a charity event called the Mongol Rally. Far from Home captures the strangeness of places most Westerners have never heard of, much less visited, like the giant fire pit and the near-empty...Read full review »

A must listen for those that enjoy travel and adventure!
MD Welch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/17
This podcast feels like reading the blog of a seasoned journalist. The research and rigor is there when it needs to be, but Scott is free to go down rabbit holes and explore stories in interesting ways. Have listened to a lot of podcasts but have never heard anything like this.
Ben Kuebrich via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/01/17
I love this podcast. It's lovely to hear about different cultures and countries.

What a great podcast to listen to ! Really Informative
Ryan2241 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/01/17
A great travel show should transport you to places you've never been and introduce you to people you wish you had met. This show does all that. Gurian and his brother drive a crappy car from London to Mongolia and, as one might suspect, adventure and mishap ensue. Think if Top Gear had thoughtful...Read full review »

Jhawk7081 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/17
Great podcast to listen to while on the road. Intrepid journalist Scott Gurian takes us on his trip halfway around the world. From car trouble to border crossings, the highly-produced, narrative-driven Far From Home podcast captures the big and small of getting out there. Far From Home's an...Read full review »

This guy is the real deal, visiting amazing places - perfect if you have wanderlust but you're confined to a desk.
Raving_Lunatic via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/10/17
One of the most interesting podcasts out today. It should be getting way more attention than it is. It will challenge your sense of adventure like nothing else. Scott does a terrific job putting it all together. And I agree with others, he makes you feel like you are there. I can't say enough...Read full review »
Mafia live = good via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/17
This podcast is an engaging form of storytelling that takes the listener from wherever they are sitting to right next to them in the streets, rolling through bumpy countryside and into the city marketplaces. Scott asks thoughtful questions and his conversations are insightful, interesting, and...Read full review »
Megatronicks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/17
Such a great adventure! Scott manages to blend all the thrill of being on the road in a fascinating and less travelled part of the world (plus the many breakdowns of his and his brother's car!) with insightful observations of the culture, politics and norms of the countries visited.

Excellent series gentleman. I feel like I'm riding along every step of the way....Keep them coming
Razzontheradio via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/16/17
This podcast is perfect for adventurous people! You get to travel vicariously through the sincere and funny Scott Gurian. I feel like I get a little "road wear." I love to get out in the world, experience the real streets of a place, and see what happens around the bend. This is such a fun (and...Read full review »
