Nice to hear the Brits view of America. The pod covers areas that are not often addressed by media here in the states. I look forward to each episode.

Used to listen to this every week, but feel Justin Webb has gone too far bringing “balance” by justifying the action and views of the far right.

I generally love this podcast, I find it hugely entertaining and informative and when I found out that Elon Musk had agreed to an impromptu interview I was very excited about what was going to be aired. I appreciate that this was put together in a rush, but I found it to be really poorly...Read full review »

I am from the left wing. However, i need the BBC to be objective and unbiased. This is appalling and needs to be taken out of the stable and shot. "Miss-Information" Oh good god. is this the future. Shoot me too pleaseRead full review »

The interviewer was embarrassingly week and underprepared. That was an hour I will never get back.
Mgrabanqqqq via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/23
My favourite podcast of any genre. Both fun and informative with a much better line-up than the previous pair!

As and American, I do not think that you could possibly understand The USa by living and working in Washington, DC. It is not a real place. I lived and worked there on both sides of the aisle for 30 years. You cannot uderstand us as some kind of monolith. You certainly can’t analyze us that...Read full review »

Really need to stop banging on about the ‘undercover’ voters. Yes we get it. People get presented different types of information on social media depending on their own interests and political leaning. Tedious does not begin to cut it.

The sections on disinformation are well done and some helpful analysis overall but Justin Webb is condescending beyond belief.

Always informative with great guests… I’d give it 50 stars if I could!

Your make believe voter Norman was terrible, hated his presentation, too overbearing … You all are so funny with your non existent followers. 🤣 I'm amazed with Biden’s record and many Americans are too, Biden will run again! 🙃Read full review »

It’s an interesting podcast but I might stop listening because Justin is just so…dumb and bad at his job. He regularly says really bonehead things which could be endearing but I draw the line when he completely disregards the expert’s evidence whom they have just interviewed to bang on about his...Read full review »

Please stop this constant referring to these made up social media accounts. Of course if you invent an account using your own prejudices you will receive stereotypical information from an algorithm. The way it is then presented as something ground breaking or surprising is just embarrassing. Such...Read full review »

Show is great. Would be nice if the BBC Sounds ad at the start is made less of a high-pitched screech. I always jump a few seconds to avoid that advertisement.
Graham 100000000099 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/11/22
Just great to have Americast back and sounding better than ever if that’s possible. So glad that the Zurch is still on the team (what a class act he is) but all the new members were excellent and I am especially pleased that Marianna has joined - what a talented journalist. Best wishes and keep...Read full review »

Villa Wills via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/27/22
BBC should be more insightful. It claimed an episode called is Elon Musk destroying Twitter or something similar. There was nothing in it that what was differentiated from any other podcast. All they did was quote some tweets and talk about nothing interesting. How about some proper investigation...Read full review »

Very good in depth journalism about the US from a British perspective. Good detail and analysis of American current events and their effect on the rest of the world. The new team is excellent
podcast alison via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/17/22
Informative and entertaining. Can’t wait to listen when new episode appears.
Helly UK via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/17/22
Essential listening, great journalism and much improved without the unnecessary attempts at banter of the previous series lead presenters.
Meiisma via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/17/22
Not informative and the opinions are heavily filtered through a left viewpoint. Plus they stole the music from Red Pilled America! Much better podcast. Forget about this.
Mantis79 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/22
Such a great format with the perfect presenters. Spot on balance between culture/news and wit. Best new(ish) show in a long time.
Joe19909 via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 11/13/22
Proper podcast journalism in contrast to the preening and posturing of Maitlis and Sopel
JF13985 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/11/22
Great coverage from everyone and a shout out to Ms Spring. Excellent team with refreshing, interesting insights. Looking down the side of a Cab seat as I type . ;)

No posturing, posing and self aggrandisement. Just good honest reportage from some of the best in the business. Podcasting at its best.
Lexie 77 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/29/22
To describe MSNBC as the left version of Fox News is really poor. Fox outright lies, yes MSNBC has more left leaning stories but that’s very different to what Fox do. Really must do better because this poor journalism is what breeds people to believe all MSM is the same.
Shanehomersimpson via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/15/22
I like the more serious & journalistic style, with less of the cringey banter of ‘Matlis’ & ‘Sopes’…. But I think Miss Information segments are given too much prominence: too long, completely predictable, too keen to be down-with-the-kids-on-Insta… Hypothetical stereotypes get false info...Read full review »

I enjoyed the old team but do prefer the new, more serious style. I notice you still have host photos of EM and JS?

I cannot believe you have ‘both sides’ the immigration issue. They did not put them buses in Martha’s Vineyard when they arrived. They fed and housed and then the National Guard was mobilised to move them to a facility that was better equipped to take care of them. It was a cruel stunt. You have...Read full review »

A much better incarnation of Americast, free from the self-adoration of the previous hosts. Keep up the good work folks!

Weak, disappointing - except for Sarah Smith who is already admirably knowledgeable about American politics and culture.
Infuriated of Saffron Walden via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/03/22
As an American, in a dark blue state, in a bright red county (Klamath), having a news source that has a different perspective is extremely useful in a topsy-turvy world. We in the US need all the perspective we can get! Thanks for being back!

Good to see this podcast back. Think it might be better than the original team. First new episode is very informative and a bit less buddy buddy than before
JW97864012 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/01/22
Think I might prefer this to the previous.
Niky_Noodles via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/01/22
I really like this cast of presenters. Justin Webb and Sarah Smith come across as friendly and knowledgeable, avoiding the cringey “banter” that Sopel and Maitlis indulged in (and I endured with gritted teeth). Anthony Zurcher is always brilliantly informative and Marianna Spring is a great...Read full review »

Since I discovered this podcast about a year ago, it has been the first listen of the day, along with ‘Newscast’ : along with my starting to understand more about some of the decisions made in the US, it has been consistently entertaining and informative. But now Maitless and Sopes have decided...Read full review »

I’ve listened to every episode, it is good at giving you a far left (democratic party) perspective. If your looking for a impartial perspective then keep looking.

If you’re looking for balanced reporting about US politics give this a miss. They selectively report their take on news in the most condescending and self-congratulatory way. It’s a show called “Americast”, as in a podcast supposedly about American politics…but it’s no such thing. It’s a...Read full review »

Lighthearted yet highly informative. Best news podcast by far (well, ties for first place with Newscast). No adverts!

Amusing, informative, required listening. Love it.
Floriston via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/17/21
Saying Kyle Rittenhouse was carrying an illegal weapon is incorrect. The charges were dropped after the prosecution and judge acknowledged it was legal (they can carry at 17 in that state as long as they are not short barrel). It just shows you haven’t followed the trial in any real depth and...Read full review »
