In this podcast, we're talking about the ITV/PBS series, Victoria, which is based on the life of Queen Victoria. This season is airing in the U.S. before it airs in the U.K. and people in Britain are not happy about it. Do Americans just like the British royal family more than Brits, or is there another reason for its early broadcast in the United States? And just how factual is this series anyway? Was Queen Victoria actually as attractive as actress Jenna Coleman? Was Prince Albert as forward thinking as he is portrayed in this series, or was he more like his portrayal in Blackadder's Christmas Carol? So. Many. Questions! But, we're determined to get to the bottom of it. Tune in and then let us know if you watch this show, and if so, what you think about it.

Tweet us, Facebook us or let us know in the comments whether your local pub has lasagna and or chicken tikka masala on the menu!
January 22, 2019

In fact, there are way too many for us to cover them all in a 30-minute podcast. But again, the list of UK chains is minuscule with Wimpy* being one of the more famous ones. Have we finally answered the question as to why there are no British fast food chains in America? Tune in to find out. And let us know in the comments, or tweet or Facebook us, whether you like to eat fast food, and if so, which restaurant(s) is your favorite? *After recording this podcast, we learned that Wimpy was actually originally an American chain that started in Chicago, but over time all of its American locations closed.

You don't know what you're missing. We highly recommend adding a trip to a local supermarket as part of your next travel itinerary, just don't expect to find root beer in the UK or prawn cocktail crisps in America.

This episode is all about biscuits! Now, if you're American, you're thinking about the delicious fluffy bread with a somewhat crispy outside that we eat with sausage and gravy, or sometimes honey, or sometimes fruity jam (I said "jam" purposefully for our British readers/listeners, as "jelly" means something entirely different for them.), but if that is indeed what you're thinking, you'd be wrong! Because today, we're talking about British biscuits, which are actually what we Americans call cookies! That's right, we'll be discussing Hobnobs and Jammie Dodgers (like those pictured above) and everything in between. We'll also be comparing and contrasting British and American cookies. Here's the ultimate question though: cookies or biscuits? Let us know down in the comments!
