I love finding smaller podcasts that are so well put together. This podcast is real quality. My question of “is there a podcast on Shackleton” was answered with “yes, there’s a great podcast about Shackleton!”

This is by far the best series of podcasts on a range of explorers. The narrative is engaging, lively and riveting. The host Matt Breen is objective and tells the stories from multiple perspectives. Highly recommended!

This is the 2nd podcast among my favorites to mispronounce Roald Amundsen (accent on 1st syllable).

Well researched and entertaining

Wow what a story!!! I am enjoying the Shackleton series very much. You have clearly researched very carefully and give well balanced comments about the man and his exploits. He truly was a gifted leader of men and in many ways put others first. i think exploring this aspect of Shackleton's...Read full review »

Gripping series. They are all just about the right length and provide plenty of detail. The Burke and Wills series is particularly interesting as I’d never previously heard of this Ill fated expedition.

I just started listening to the episodes they are great. I think there are many episodes already made which deserve listening to. So, great for regular listening but also for binge listening;)

I discovered this podcast today and am loving it. We have family in Australia, and I’m very much enjoying following the Burke and Wills expedition. Excited that they stopped in Swan Hill - have visited there from Melbourne- our journey of 4 hours slightly easier than their 17 days…. Imagining...Read full review »

I listen to a lot of history podcasts and this is consistently my favorite. Great subject matter and well researched. I even find the host’ s voice to be appealing.

Great podcast in terms of research however unfortunately the host reads much too fast so it’s hard to follow all details
Redtapenade via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/23/21
Incredible podcast! Extremely knowledgeable and does a great job detailing the stories and delving deep into interesting information. Can’t tell you how many hours of road tripping my boyfriend and I have listened to so far! Great podcast

This guy knows how to pick intriguing topics! His coverage of Shackleton alone makes this podcast I’ll always keep coming back to. I can’t wait to listen to more! Keep up the good work.

Wow! I am not one to write reviews however This show is phenomenal. The amount of effort and detail put into these episodes is outstanding. I have never enjoyed a podcast more. This podcast puts all other podcasts to shame. Nothing brightens up my day more than seeing the push notification for a...Read full review »

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!
ghdsdjkcseyh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/21
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
Red_Pill_Man via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/21
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!
nikki1607 via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 05/22/21
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.
Ubertodt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/21
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!
GuyofSpoleto via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/15/21
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

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.

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 »

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!

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 »
