I cheered during replays thinking it was live television. I screamed 'come on America' most definitely 900 times throughout the duration of the game. I made it very clear of my feelings of how England is terrible at the sport and we are better than you.

The other day, I was scanning down my Facebook feed and saw a status update from a highly-regarded circuit act.

Perhaps what I personally respect about this podcast above all else is that it tip toes the line of respecting its audience and not simply patronisingly spoon feeding knowledge. It doesn't acquiesce to the demands of dumbing down nor does it hold any pretence about itself.

As the 2012 election season grips all corners of the US in a fascinating carnival of strategy, pageantry, and partisanship; I realise I miss something else. Just as viewing sports is not the same in London, neither is the US political race.
