Stuff Brits Like: A Conversation with BBC's Fraser McAlpine

This week on Halfway Planet, we had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with BBC writer and broadcaster Fraser McAlpine to discuss his new book Stuff Brits Likea brilliantly comprehensive book that covers virtually all facets of British life, including sarcasm, needless apologies, and the British propensity for putting Union Jacks on things! Press play below to get Fraser's insight into Doctor Who, the NHS, Bonfire Night, and a wealth of other British subjects.
