I found this to listen to the Lewis and Clark story after visiting Fort Clatsop in oregon and finished all 8 parts on my trip home. This podcast is so well written and presented, interesting and entertaining. I’m hooked!

So well researched and presented, this is one of the best history podcasts I’ve encountered. I came for the doomed polar expeditions and stayed for everything else.

All time favorite podcast. Have listen to every episode. Packed full of amazing details that puts things into perspective. You end up with a much clear understanding of events. I plan on listening to all of the shows again. Thanks

Fantastic podcast. Researched in depth and spoken without bias. I particularly loved the Burke and Wills (Aussie bias) series, the Louis and Clarke and the Hernan Cortez series. Fascinating.

Stumbled unto to this podcast while looking into Everest explorers. It’s informative, well made, and never boring!

I found the Explorers Podcast while searching for a history on Vasco Nuñez de Balboa- I was not disappointed. The podcast is concise and easy to listen to, but I can tell that the information is very well researched. Thank you for this excellent podcast which makes my commutes more enjoyable.

This podcast is full of fascinating stories, very well told. It’s been a blast learning about the voyages of obscure explorers and learning more about famous ones. The podcaster knows how to keep it conversational and detailed without getting dry. Thank you and please keep up the great work!

Excellent podcast! Very detailed but keeps the story moving forward.
JAD3003 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/21
Love the pod! Exploration stories are something not even fiction could make up. Would you ever think of doing Teddy Roosevelt’s trip down the Amazon? You’ve told stories I’ve never even thought of as explorer stories until I heard them on your pod and I think this story kind of has that vibe. Try...Read full review »

Always looking forward to the next episode and love the depth and detail for each story. Age of Exploitation my favorite era in history. Always excited to learn more about it.
MikieO77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/21
Just terrific. Great storyteller even though it is all factual. Not many podcasts engage me but this one leaves me searching for the next great adventure!, would be nice to hear about the voyages of Captain James Cook

My husband and I love this podcast! Came upon it on a road trip once and now it’s our exciting go to for every trip! Captivating voice for storytelling and well written. Thanks!

Thoroughly enjoying this very well researched and clearly narrated podcast. At the moment I’m immersed in the Lewis and Clark expedition. Very much looking forward to learning some more incredible tales from history.

Just good plain and simple storytelling. The best.

Found this podcast by accident. Can’t put it down now. Very interesting topics, great research. Got my teenage son onto it as well. Thank you, thank you!
ANCCM via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/03/21
Well researched, engaging and addictive. You feel like you are going along on the journeys of the explorers. I've especially enjoyed the series on Marco Polo and Burke and Wills. Listening to Lewis and Clark now, and it's equally good. This is one of the podcasts getting me through...Read full review »

This podcast has brought me on adventures across many continents and time periods, introduced me to a wide cast of characters- both villainous and sympathetic, and is also a lot of fun. Matt’s style is calming and matter of fact, which is particularly appreciated over the past year. I have had...Read full review »

This is by far the best podcast I’ve ever listen too. I listen to every episode within a month... and going back through for a second time! If you love exploration this is the place for you!
GeoJosh23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/21
Really enjoy listening to your show while running! Helps spark the adventure in me on some of my runs. Keep up the great work!

Found out about this podcast on Reddit and started with the Mallory series and quickly followed with Hillary. I’ve now gone back to the beginning of the series and great research and relaying all the way through. Have recommended to friends that are also hooked. Thank you for the hard work Matt!
Nik@Knite via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/20/21
Top quality podcast. Matt’s narratives are well paced, well researched and presents the facts, timings and characters in a very informative but accessible and entertaining way. He really strikes a perfect balance of details and pace allowing each story to unfold in a way that doesn’t demand too...Read full review »

I discovered this podcast free days ago and have listened to the series on Magellan and now finishing up Drake’s. Keep up the good work. Shawn Maile from Antigua and Barbuda.

Just excellent Thought I knew a lot about history..,what a learning experience Do a lot of walking great way to have the time melt away

I recently came across this podcast and have been wowed by it. It is exceptionally researched, written and narrated. It helps you understand major journeys of discovery and brings history to life. You definitely want to add this incredible tour de force to your listening schedule.
Justmeonlybetter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/21
Without exception one of the best researched podcast I’ve ever listened to. Matt does an incredible job presenting the material and sorting threw the info that he feels won’t add to the listening experience. Highly recommend!

Very interesting, never a boring episode, leaves you wanting more!
Siri V via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 02/09/21
What a great find! The host is very knowledgable and his research is first rate. Production values are high!
Gman Brad via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/21
Really like the way history is explained. Keep them coming!
NunoNogueira via Apple Podcasts · Mexico · 02/07/21
This is the best podcast I’ve heard. Informative, very well paced and researched, and truly entertaining. I have been eagerly following this podcast for a couple of years now. It is incredibly well done. I can gladly put up with the somewhat overbearing bias against Spaniards constantly reflected...Read full review »

One of the best history pods I’ve listened to. But the “Best Fiends” adds are creepy and off putting. I understand you need adds, but I hate that add.
Bellinater via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/21
Well researched and interesting content if delivered a little dryly. The narrator has trouble converting feet to metres - keeps saying that Norgay reached heights of 9500m when Everest is only 8849m tall...
bellzzzashg via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/27/21
Thank you for inspiring me to learn about so many new people and stories throughout history. Listening to your pod has been an absolute treat.

I love this podcast so much. I am working my way through every episode and am sad that there isn’t more. We need more!!!

Tells it like it is.
Troy Noble via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/21
This podcast quickly has become my favorite podcast to listen to! Matt is an excellent story teller and it’s evident how much work he puts into his research. I love the details of his stories and he has an easy voice to listen to.

Well-researched, easy to listen to, and informative. Matt's passion for the subject comes across clearly. Appreciate the historical context and background on the people and events leading up to and following the main events. Listened to every episode, bought the shirt and wish I could've...Read full review »

The best history podcast I have ever listened too, hands down. No fluff or filler just all the facts and information presented in perfect story-teller fashion. It’s all I listen to at the moment and I’ll probably listen to it all again once I’m caught up on episodes. Addictive and highly...Read full review »

I especially enjoy to learn about less known explorers in addition to the big names.
saxx via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 01/10/21
I follow since over a year this podcast and I can’t stop! Rich historical investigation presented in a very good story and professionally done: each podcast is a pleasure to hear. Not too long, not too short... thank you for all these amazing episodes!
hörerin73 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 01/10/21

I drive a lot of miles for my job. Listening to Matt tell the tales is incredibly easy and fun. I think Matt doesn’t get bogged down in the mundane, he gives you the best parts of these tales and it’s always an interesting ride from start to finish! Highly recommend!!!
