You Say Toma(h)to – Episode 01.03 Recap

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.

Many of my readers might remember Jeremy from my days as a student in Durham. Well, he's still in the picture and as a matter of fact, he went all the way to America with me to visit my friends and family for Thanksgiving. While he was travelling he kept a diary of what we did and some of his thoughts about my native country. What follows in this and the next blog post is an edited version of his travel diary (edited mainly for length as Jeremy is quite the writer).
