  • Just amazing!!

    My wife and I have recently started listening to Far from Home on our drives to and from Virginia from New Jersey to visit my in-laws.season 1 so far has been nothing short of amazing. We’ve “binged” episodes our last couple drives and really feel that we are right there next to Scott and Drew during the Mongol rally. Can’t wait to keep listening and see what future seasons bring! Scott thanks for all you do more
