The Goode Olde Dayse

candy_01This week, it’s Transatlantically Speaking “After Dark” which, sadly, just means that we recorded later than normal. We do a wrap-up of the women’s World Cup, and get a letter from Kevin in Oregon with a list of ways to tell if you’re an American. Then we go through a list of olde tyme stuff, to see how many Johnson and I know. Somehow in this episode we touch on everything from airport codes to artisanal Jell-o, David Caruso to ice trays. Enjoy!

MorrisMinorThis week, Jochen writes in about how well the England and Germany women’s football teams are doing (unfortunately, a week is a long time in football, and they’ve since both been eliminated.) Also in his letter, among ¬†other things, is a theory on the American knife/fork switcheroo thing, then my dad writes in to commiserate on the trials of our family name. Later, the old buddy-cop team is back when Cocker takes the quiz, trying to identify what “Ma Bell” is, while Johnson goes below the waist (I know!) with “a dab hand.” Happy 4th of July, everyone!
