Introducing Season 3 (S3.00)

S3 Intro

After a long wait, it’s time for an update on Season 3 of 80 Days: an exploration podcast! There are a few announcements about the future release schedule, some teasers of things to come and all the details about our new Patreon page, where you can sign up to support this podcast if you like what we do:

You can support us at lots of different levels from $1 per episode up to $10 per episode, depending on what kind of rewards you want to benefit from.

The show will always be free, but we’d really appreciate any pennies you can throw or way to help cover the costs of making it possible. We’re looking forward to sending out episode 1 of season 3 next week – the Australian Island of Tasmania.

Merry Christmas from the 80 Days team! We hope you enjoy this Christmas themed “minisode” – this is a new, shorter and more focused format of episode we’re trying out before we launch Season 3. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this different style of storytelling (positive or negative), or indeed we’d love to hear your thoughts on anything on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram @80dayspodcast or by email at

Best wishes for 2018, wherever you are around the world.

Welcome to 80 Days: an exploration podcast, brought to you by three history and geography nerds in an internet-powered balloon.

80 Days – an exploration podcast is 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. Season 1 of this new podcast will be available to download very soon. In the meantime, we invite you to like our page on Facebook or follow us on Twitter so you can be kept updated for our launch and subsequent episode releases.

We’re looking forward to letting you hear our take on the world.
