Mind the Gap holds weekly Twitter chats about topics important to Brits living in the U.S. And we now have a new time, Wednesdays at 2 to 3 pm ET. Join us on Twitter @MindtheGap_BBCA using the hashtag #MindTheChat. You can submit your questions and thoughts before chat time, but just remember to include the hashtag!

Our chats are co-hosted by our sponsor @Virgin_Atlantic, the expat organization @BritsinLA, the New York City expat organization @GEORGE, and talent manager Louisa Spring @GetMe2Hollywood, in addition to an assortment of special guests and regulars.

America might look like a bizarre fun-house mirror to Brits living here, but many initially reluctant expats become enamored with this wild, diverse, infuriating, and ultimately enthralling country. For our September 4 chat, host Ruth Margolis will be chatting about the things Brits enjoy most about America. (Check out her post on it.)

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. 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.
