Are my ears deceiving me? An even-handed and nuanced programme about anti-Americanism? I missed the first instalment of Justin Webb's R4 series, Death to America, but just caught up with the second, an examination of what people in Latin America - and especially Venezuela - think about Uncle Sam. Sharp intakes of breath from the radicals as our man with the microphone asks awkward questions about whether hostility to yanqui power is sometimes a smokescreen for local failures. Excellent, thought-provoking radio.
Webb has spoken up on this subject before, as you may recall. He'll be reporting from Cairo next week. As soon as I have a free moment, I'll listen to the first programme as well.
