Great podcast

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this podcast and will certainly continue. I like how well balanced the information is - especially between the US and the UK mindset. Thanks Julian for being open and honest ( and we’ll informed) about out COVID status an US transportation. I can’t wait for the upcoming podcasts!

I am editing to add that I’d never realized that our rail system was built not to ‘move around the country’ such as in the UK but to link waterways. Thanks. 👍🏼

Great first podcast

Nice informed observation and commentary on aspects of life in America. Bang up to date on topical stuff too. Reminded me of ‘letter from America’ by Alistair Cooke.
