#MindTheChat June 28: Remembering British Childhoods


Every Friday at 1 pm ET (barring holiday weekends), it’s time to #MindTheChat on Twitter. We’ll be joined by our co-hosts Big Apple Brits, Brits in LA, GEORGE, Louisa Spring and Virgin Atlantic for an amusing chat on topics that matter to British expats living in America.

This Friday (June 28), we’re summoning Freud (no, not really) and digging deep into British childhood memories. Are you haunted in your sleep by visions of Roland Rat or the theme to Bagpuss? ‘Fess up — do you have a Blue Peter Pinterest? Unburden yourself this coming Friday at 1 pm ET. And check this out for Pinspiration.

Remember: to participate, use the hashtag #MindTheChat.

NOTE: we are preempting #MindTheChat on Friday, July 5 for the Fourth of July weekend. Enjoy a huge slab of charred, smoked flesh on our behalf!

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
