American politics, foreign policy & culture for an international audience

Listen and subscribe


America Explained is new. It will evolve. But its guiding principles will always be: truth, not lies; informed, but not insular; topical, but not a slave to the news cycle. Read more about our vision.

Hosted by the historian and political commentator Andy Gawthorpe, each fortnightly episode features analysis and interviews which help you understand a key issue in a way the regular news cycle never will. And if something really big happens in-between, we’ll drop a bonus episode to keep you up to date.
