Pumpkins, fancy dress and trick or treat (#8)
It's Halloween this week so take your seat. In this episode, we talk confidently about the origin of Halloween, what's the best Halloween candy, why on earth one country dedicates a whole month to it and more.
Wedding WTFs (#7)
We’ve been to a few weddings together and have been shocked by some of the differences in UK vs UK weddings. In this episode, we unpick some of the best pre-wedding and wedding traditions – like ‘what’s with those weird hats?’, ‘what’s a rehearsal dinner?’ and ‘does the groom really dance with his mom?’ Listen in to learn more.
Back to school, back to school (#6)
Get your school uniform back out the of closet (or not). This week, we discuss the differences in American and British school. From Kindergarten/year 1 through to high school/secondary school, it’s a pop quiz for both of us to see what we remember about the good ol’ days of school life.
The breakfast episode: Full monty vs. chicken in a scone (#5)
Eggs everything, who decided? Eggs are probably the only thing that US and UK breakfasts have in common. In this episode, we break down the differences in the most important meal of the day. From why a biscuit is not a scone, to what in the world is in black pudding... it's eggselent.
The ReMark(le)able Episode (#4)
Buckingham palace, royal weddings and baby Archie, oh my. This week, we talk all about the royal family and the role they play in the UK. Are they a force for good? What power do they actually have? And why doesn’t the queen need a passport?
College sports vs. uni sport (#3)
With football season (American football, that is!) kicking off, we discuss the differences in university sports in the UK and the US. Listen in to hear the importance of money, cream cheese and even singing to sports in college. Believe it or not, even Martin learns some things along the way!
