Your favo(u)rite British host, Laurence Brown, discusses some of the things no one told him about life in Chicago, after moving to the Windy City in July 2016...



Sometimes, it's better hearing me in a British accent. Click the red button below.


Laurence Brown is a British man writing his way through the truly bizarre world of America - a place he sometimes accidentally calls home and a place he still hasn't quite figured out after seven years. Thankfully, his journey is made 12% easier by the fact that his accent makes him sound much smarter than he is. For evidence of this, subscribe to his popular Lost in the Pond web series over on YouTube.

Well now that you've seen "Planes Trains and Automobiles" perhaps you might see Billy Clubs, Mace and Paddy Wagons, a.k.a. "Medium Cool", a 1969 film about events surrounding the Chicago 1968 Democratic Convention. Al Capone is only a small part of Chicago's history. The 1968 Chicago DNC riots were one of the greatest hits of the sixties. It will enhance the way you see present-day Chicago. Let's hope to God this link works (if not then see the trailer on YouTube).

The Boffin and I love it here in Chicagoland. Yes, the people are great.

Oh, you have to remember your grid system and look to the open sky. That tells you which way the Lake is.
