They speak the same language (well, sort of), so why do the Americans and the British do pretty much everything differently? In her new podcast “Postcards From The Edge”, Ayda Williams, an American in Britain, tries to make some sense of this endlessly baffling and frequently absurd cultural divide. (Is there really no limit to the ways British people are weird and illogical? And why do they keep saying “sorry”, especially as they’re rarely sorry for the stuff they should be?) Each week Ayda sits down with a noted British person to explore these differences and grapple for common ground, periodically aided and abetted by her very definitely American mother Gwen and her very definitely British first husband Robbie Williams.
