I would give all my fame for a pot of ale . . . (Henry V: Act 3, Scene 2; William Shakespeare) Luckily you need not give all your fame in order to enjoy this episode of You Say Toma(h)to on food and drink. This month, Jeremy and I discuss US and UK cuisine and the stereotypes … Continue reading Episode 01.06 – Brasserie Tomate – 6 June 2017
SPORTSBALL! SPORTSBALL! SPORTSBALL! ENDLESS SPORTSBALL! Heroes will be made in this month's episode of You Say Toma(h)to! As you might have guessed, this month, Jeremy and I discuss all things sports, but mainly the quirkiness of cricket and baseball.
I had so much fun making this month's episode of You Say Toma(h)to. Stitching together the audio we had recorded all over Paris into a narrative helped me to relive our holiday and make it come alive in a way that a simple blog post never could.
Jeremy and I talked for the better part of two months about how we could possibly deal with all that is going on in the world on our little travel podcast. The political situations in both our countries made it impossible to ignore and the escalation of events meant we would have to find a way to talk about fast-developing events in a way that a monthly podcast could handle. There was another thing to consider. We didn't just want to be two more shouting people on the internet. We wanted to approach everything in a way which would fit with our podcast and would add something to the discussion. I think we just about managed that.
Episode 01.02 of You Say Toma(h)to has been out for a little over a week now. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I'm getting much more comfortable using Audacity and adding in some transition music and cleaning up the audio really helped me to raise the quality of this latest installment. I hope all you audiophiles are as pleased as I am.
I first began thinking about putting together a podcast about a year ago. I'd been listening to episodes of Wil Wheaton's Memories of the Futurecast and Radio Free Burrito and had begun following Runner's World podcasts especially Human Race. I loved being able to toss an episode on at the end of the day and lay in bed … Continue reading You Say Toma(h)to Episode 01.01 Recap
Welcome to the new home of An American in Durham. I started this blog three years ago to document my journey as an international student at Durham University. After I graduated with my master's degree I'm afraid I put a full stop at the end of my last post and didn't really look back. I tried to start a new blog about my experiences as a PhD student in the City of Leicester but I never quite stuck with it. After taking almost two years away from blogging, I'm finally ready to come back to share my new adventures with you.
