I want to focus for a few weeks on the current US protests and riots which started with the death by cop of George Floyd. I’ve invited a number of American friends and fans who live in riot hotspots to come on and share with me their experiences and views on how the country can move forwards.
But I’m starting the miniseries with my favourite American – my wife, Chrissy Dunaway Reilly. She has lived in Australia for nearly eleven years and has a fairly rare perspective on what it’s like to be an American living in a Western country that is similar in many ways – and yet different. And why she no longer wants to return to the country of her birth.
