Geraldine muses about America's past and present while on holiday in New York City
Geraldine is in New York City after attending a fabulous wedding in Virginia.
She spent her last day in America travelling north to FDR's old residence in upstate New York.
Geraldine has always thought of herself as a Londonophile, rather than a New Yorker. That's partly because she lived in London and has a greater affinity for its people and culture.
Eliza asks her Mum to analyse why she's not more of a Manhattan fan. After all, New York has all the ingredients Geraldine loves, like great parks and classy architecture.
Under some gentle scrutiny, Geraldine acknowledges that maybe she's a bigger fan of the United States than she cares to reveal.
Apologies for the scratchy audio during parts of this episode. Eliza's headphones were rubbing against her shirt, but that sound was drowned out in the headphones. She'll fix it by next week.
