Host, Aaron Millar

The voice behind the show is award-winning British travel writer Aaron Millar. A regular contributor to the Times of London, National Geographic Traveller and more, Aaron’s passion is telling stories that inspire people to explore the world, celebrate the outdoors, and live life to the full. His podcasts have been nominated for two Webbys, and won the 2022 British Guild of Travel Writers Travel Broadcaster of the Year. He’s trekked with Shugendo monks in Japan, descended into a volcano in Iceland, and staggered through a 100-mile pub crawl in the UK, but this is his favorite gig yet. Hates rom-coms and shellfish; loves sci-fi and tequila.
