Since September 2020, podcaster Alex has been introducing the French to lesser little-known aspects of American culture: the pilgrimages that communities make for their late icons throughout the country.
To illustrate this phenomenon, Alex, a French podcaster fan of the US, takes us to the bus in Alaska of Into the Wild, to Kobe Bryant tributes in Los Angeles, as well as mythical places for fans of Jimi Hendrix, Jack Kerouac, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and Martin Luther King Jr.
Throughout the testimonials of today’s pilgrims, Alex portrays today’s America through the tribute paid to USA’s idols.
Hitchhiking from one community to the other, Alex shows a profound human side of an America expressed by the passionate, the grief-stricken or the spiritual sons.
The result is an audio road trip already consisting of seventeen episodes (each approximately 30 minutes long), compiling interviews, storytelling and the ideal soundtrack.
Have a good journey on the American roads!
