A Race Around the World A Podcast Based on the True Story of Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland

5 Comments Badges

On November 14th, 1889, two female writers entered a race to go around the world in under 80 days. Nellie Bly went east, and Elizabeth Bisland headed west.

This eleven part series will unpack their whirlwind adventure and what it was like to circumnavigate the globe alone as a woman at a time where women had no rights. Both women will travel through ten countries, four continents, and every major body of water in between.

A Race Around the World brings the incredible accomplishments of these two bold solo female travelers to life, going through every country and feeling they face while braving the world on their own, in under 80 days.
