Arthur does what he pleases
Without a doubt AmeriNZ is my favorite podcast produced by an American who lives abroad.
Run, don't walk to subscribe to this show! Arthur is always very interesting and informative, and does it with just a slight (yet adorable) Kiwi accent! :) Love the show!
I always enjoy a new AmeriNZ in my iTunes. You will, too! Politics, culture, personal musings, they're all here with one of the nicest hosts in podcast land.
