About Back in America
Back in America explores America's identity, culture, and values.
Interviews from a multicultural perspective that question the way we understand America
In this podcast, international journalist Stan Berteloot (He/Him/His) explores American life stories from his French perspective.
A native from France, Stan spent his senior High School year in Iowa. He went on to live in Dupont Circle, Washington, DC while attending the University of Maryland where he graduated with a BA in journalism.
Upon return to his home country, he steadily climbed the corporate ladder but has now come back to America, finding himself in the new and unaccustomed role as the trailing spouse of a successful career woman, and father of an adolescent climate activist.
He and his family live in Princeton, New Jersey between New York and Philadelphia. He continues to contribute to an international magazine as a feature journalist with a specific interest in today's society's hot button issues.
Each episode explores why and how Americans do what they do. While easy and entertaining to listen to, Stan doesn't shy away from difficult and personal questions and explores issues from different angles and perspectives. Every topic is game; politics, social issues, climate crises, gender issues, racial issues, sex, and diversity... and everything else in-between.
Provocative ideas for inquisitive and open-minded listeners.
