11. Victoria on PBS/ITV
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.
32:12
January 22, 2019
10. Pubs (Food Series #4)
In the last episode of this series, we're discussing pubs: how and where  to order food, the kinds of foods you can find in pubs, who actually  owns the pub, and more.  What's the difference between a pub and a bar?   What's the American equivalent of British "pub culture"?  Dominic does  his best to try and convince us all that a drink called a Woo Woo  actually exists.  But, whether it does or not, should you expect to be  able to order one in a typical pub?  We try our best to answer all your  burning questions in our tenth podcast.  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! 
41:50
January 22, 2019
9. Fast Food (Food Series #3)
In our latest installment, we're discussing British and American fast  food chains.  From A&W to KFC to McDonald's to Taco Bell, the list  of U.S. fast food chains seems endless.  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. 
35:45
January 22, 2019
8. Chain Restaurants (Food Series #2)
Our latest podcast finds us talking about chain restaurants in America  and the UK.  Erica lets visitors to the UK know what they can expect  when ordering a drink with their meal in a chain restaurant in Britain.   For the love of God, what do the British have against ice?!  Are there  any restaurants whose popularity stretches across the Atlantic?  And why  are there so many more chains in the United States than in Britain?   Leave your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below or on Twitter or Facebook.

7. Foods Hard To Find In The US & UK (Food Series #1)
We're baaaack.  After a somewhat annoying end to the year which included  a computer hard drive that died, taking with it a few pre-recorded  podcasts, among other projects, we've taken a breath, and a little break  to regroup, and we're starting this new year afresh with a new series  for you all.  And yes, if you guessed that it's a food series, you guessed right, because everyone knows we apparently love talking about nothing else,  the way we love talking about food!  In the first episode of this  series we'll discuss American foods you'll have a hard time finding in  Britain and vice versa.  Never visited a grocery store in another  country?  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. 
36:19
January 22, 2019
6. Christmas Movies
Our sixth podcast finds us talking about Christmas movies. We discuss  which movies are especially popular in the UK, as well as which movies  Americans tend to favor.  Are they the same or are there popular films  in Britain that we Americans have never heard of?  They show A Christmas  Story for 24 hours on television during Christmas in the United States,  but is it as popular in the UK?  Also, Dominic and I discuss our  personal favorite Christmas flicks.  We want to know your top favorite  Christmas movies.  Let us know in the comment section below or, as  always, tweet, Instagram, or Facebook us. 
28:01
January 22, 2019
5. Christmas Traditions
This podcast is all about how Christmas traditions differ between the  United States and Great Britain.  When and how is the season kicked off  in each country?  What do American children and British children  traditionally leave out for Santa?  And what the heck are Christmas  crackers?  Also, Erica invites any and everyone who goes caroling (and  doesn't live in a Hallmark movie) to come knock on her door to sing,  because she doesn't know anyone who actually does that these days.  Do  all British kids leave their stockings on the end of their beds or is  that just something strange Dominic grew up doing?  What are your  Christmas traditions?  We're dying to know!    
33:27
January 22, 2019
4. Desserts
Our latest podcast is all about desserts!  We're talking about  everything from British staples like Sticky Toffee Pudding and Eton Mess  to American go-to's such as Apple Pie and Brownies.  Also, Dominic  drops a major bombshell on me by revealing he had never eaten Banana  Pudding before he came to America!  What exactly is Angel Delight and  Blancmange?  Is there a difference between the British Jelly and  American Jell-O?  Find out the answers to all these questions and more  in our new episode.  Also, we're curious, what's your favorite dessert?   We know we left out tons of delicious sweet treats.  Be sure to let us  know which ones, so we can discuss them on a future podcast.  If we use  your suggestion, we'll be sure to give you a shout-out! 
30:41
January 22, 2019
3. Christmas Music
 There was recently a poll of Magic Radio listeners to determine  Britain's list of the Top Twelve Christmas songs of all time.  Who  topped the list, and did we agree?  Today we're talking about Christmas  music from Britain and America: How do the countries' Christmas tunes  differ?  Are there songs that are popular in one country but not in the  other?  Find out the answers to all these questions, and which songs are  on our own personal lists of the top Christmas songs of all time in our  latest podcast. 
28:21
January 22, 2019
2. Biscuits
 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! 
30:55
January 22, 2019
1. Tea
 In our premiere podcast episode,  Dominic and I spill the tea about, well...  tea!  We talk about all things tea-related in Britain and America and  how tea varies in each of our countries.  Can you get iced tea at  restaurants in Britain?  Are you supposed to put milk in Earl Grey?  Is  tea-drinking still as popular in Britain as it once was?  We discuss all  these things and more in our very first podcast!  Let us know in the  comments below if you're a tea drinker, and if so, how you take it.
