80 Days is a podcast dedicated to exploring little-known countries, territories settlements and cities around the world. Brought to you by three history and geography nerds in an internet-powered balloon. Inspired by Phileas Fogg’s whistle-stop tour of the world, we have decided to take the more leisurely approach, going one country, city or territory at a time and finding out as much as we can. Subscribe to the podcast to explore the world with us.

Interact with us on Facebook or Twitter if you have any comments or suggestions about where we should explore next!

  1. Hi Guys,
    I love the podcast and I’ve listened to every episode. I’d like to recommend an episode on Albania. I lived there for a few years and speak Albanian. It’s an incredible country and language, both with fascinating history. Stunningly beautiful as it borders Greece, but much cheaper and less crowded. Google syri kalter and thethi and you’ll be convinced!
