World of UScast: The British Bodcast

This week, we published the second episode of World of UScast, the feature where we feature a podcast from an international partner. The British Bodcast was the show in the spotlight this time. The hosts proclaim that their mission is to turn good old Americans into fully fledged Anglophiles through the power of radio. Give it a listen and find out if they’re successful!

Tonight, You’re All Going to be Part of a Social Experiment

The One of Us crew likes to support each other in each of our individual endeavors, whether they are professional, recreational, or in this case, academic. Angelo of the INTERN-Net has one last hurdle to overcome before he graduates from college and it involves a research project with a survey component. As much as I’d like to say more, I don’t want to impact your answers to the survey, so go ahead and check out Angelo’s post and help him earn his degree!


Ash & Fern: A Beginner’s Guide to the World Cup 

Ash & Fern 371

Supposedly, Ash and Fern are going to the World Cup this year, but they might actually burst from excitement before they get there. Soocer, or futbol, is the world’s most popular sport, but a staggering amount of Americans know little about it. Fear not, Fern’s latest post is here to teach you a thing or two about the world’s game. Not only is this piece informative, but there’s a great video of soccer players pretending to get injured, so definitely give this one a look.

Highly Suspect Reviews!

One of Us’ review crew, The Unusual Suspects, have four, count them four movie reviews for you to listen to this week. Yeah, they spoil us, but that’s because they’re good like that.

– First, Marvel’s most famous mutants attempt to re-write history and prevent global catastrophe in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

– Next, Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore get a trip to Africa subsidized by the movie industry under the guise of filming a comedy about two families on a vacation in Blended.

– On a more positive note, Jon Farvreau directs and stars in Chefa film about a veteran culinary artist who gives up on the standard restaurant business and tries his hand at running a food truck after a critic crushes his spirit.

– Finally, the half-black daughter of a wealthy English admiral discovers that riches and privilege do not insulate her from racism and seeking fulfillment beyond her plush upbringing in Belle.
