To avoid slipping into the trap of not having anything interesting to talk about, I've decided to start a semi-regular feature on my blog where I suggest books, blogs, podcasts, tv series, movies, etc. that I've been enjoying.

One of the podcasts I've found particularly entertaining of late is BBC Radio 4's Americana. The site describes it as an insider’s guide to the stories shaping the USA today. From Washington DC and broadcast every Sunday, at 7.15pm, Matt Frei is your host. On offer, discussion and insight from some of the best known names and voices in America. The podcast covers news, current events, culture, history, art, etc. with an eclectic theme each week.

As an American who has lived on both sides of the pond I find it interesting to see my country described from an outsider's perspective, and it sheds a new light on what the U.S. is all about. If you're looking for something new to listen to, this is a good bet.
