My New Letter From America

No one could ever take the place of our dearly loved and dearly missed Alistair Cooke, however this pod cast has given me something to look forward to again.

I am not a Big pod cast listener, in fact before I found Axe Files I only listened to Letter from America.

Absolutely excellent

Many good things have been said about the Axe Files in the rave reviews. Let me add....I simply love this podcast. It is up there in the two or three very best of political podcasts. The gentle informal conversational style rolls along, bringing a complete picture of some of the most interesting people in US public life today. Their early experiences are touched on tactfully, their highlights, their struggles, their heroes. For a UK listener it makes for riveting listening, introducing us to the lesser known and fleshing out the bigger players. Thank you David and your team for this most important and timely public service.

Compelling & Enlightening

One of the most insightful, inspiring and heartfelt shows I have ever heard. I often find myself laughing out loud or shedding a tear in public whilst listening to the incredible life stories of these incredible guests, learning of their innermost struggles, hopes, and aspirations. David’s thoughtful conversational style brings out the best in people, and reminds listeners that the politicians, business leaders and journalists who ‘run the world’ are all-too-human, just like we are. Thank you for bringing some light and knowledge to us every week, David & team.
