Tone

I love your show and have learned so many things from it. But I have a but. You tour the UK, and I think have toured here in Australia. When you talk about places other than the US, you put on hokey accents and seem surprised that you find sophisticated places outside America. But we also get advertising from our own country which you read. So can you can the patronising? Thanks!
