Americana asks why English culture isn’t widely celebrated across the United States.

Matt Frei talks with author and historian Maya Jasanoff and Brenton Simons of the New England Historic Genealogical Society about what aspects of English heritage are recognized and why.

Author Michael Bronski explains how English Puritans framed the history of homosexuality in America.

Etiquette instructor, Sandy Muscopf Hyde, offers a few lessons in manners from the Midwest of the US– passed down from early settlers through generations and now supplemented in afterschool programmes.
