Martin and I spent a lot of time talking to people far up the food chain, well before we went "on the air."
I can't speak for Martin, but I can speak for myself.
ATS is based in the U.S. Demographically, the largest audience share comes from the U.S. We can't help a certain amount of Amero-centrism. Martin
and I get plenty of mail on this topic. The whole point in selecting co-hosts from different countries was to provide a "different" perspective
than what you'd hear on many radio stations.
The show's title is intended to let new listeners know right off that they'll be in for something that IS different. I've sampled A LOT of
political podcasts, and I can tell you from my research that what Martin and I do is rare, even though our format is very conventional.
