Anthony Bourdain, much loved cook and television personality has taken his own life at age 61, the same week Designer Kate Spade also took her life.

Graeme and Dybvig discuss his life, how he inspired them and the truth about addiction. They also touch on Kate Spade, Ellen DeGeneres and how could we forget, Trump.

Kate Spade was only age 55 when she died, Dybvig says there’s a 30 per cent rise of suicide in America.

Ellen DeGeneres is copping flack after posting an instagram with a group of young African children.

She is being blamed for posting “poverty porn", Dybvig jumps in and shares his two cents on it.

Also, a little bit about Trump, Trump, Trump. 

“I have the absolute right to pardon myself” – The President of America.

And with Trump in mind, Graeme decided to give Dybvig a cheeky surprise. Check out the video below.

Warning: John does always try to contain himself, but there are a few swear-words used, so listen to this week's Letter from America at your own risk.
