“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 capital city of Turkmenistan. But it’s at its best in small human moments, from hospitality offered in Iran to the kindness of strangers after multiple mishaps.
It also documents the practicalities of preparing for an 18-country trek in a tiny car, obtaining visas and car repair lessons, and the necessary improvisations along the way when navigating desert breakdowns and corrupt border guards. A brilliant listen.”
