Chatter from America is a weekly podcast featuring three worldly Brits making their way in the land of the free. The show is an irreverent, witty and insightful look back at this week’s big stories in America and promises only very occasionally to mention cricket. The program is co-hosted by The Economist’s New York Bureau Chief, Matthew Bishop, Henry Timms, the director of the Simon Center at 92Y, WNYC Radio’s Femi Oke and a magnificent line up of special guests.
