Publisher's summary

Conan fan favorite and eccentric YouTube personality Flula Borg presents his first audiobook, a full-length travel-adventure through America's most coveted cultural events!

Flula Borg's fascination with America and its "peoples" have warmed hearts nationwide. A frequent guest of Conan O’Brien, the German-born actor and multi-talented entertainer (think Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat crossed with Billy Eichner) fell in love with the United States upon his first visit as a young boy. Throughout his career, he has succeeded in regaling audiences with stories from his outlandish travel exploits while paying homage to his German upbringing, culminating in a personality that is supercharged and charmingly wholesome. 

In this zany, eye-opening, and delightful six-part audio series, Flula travels the breadth of the United States in search of its coveted and weirdest pastimes to learn more about the country and to better understand what drives people to these cultural events. His adventures include:

  • Experiencing the famed Iditarod dog-sledding race in Alaska
  • Partying Up during the US Open of Surfing in California
  • Donning Elvis duds for Elvis Week in Mississippi
  • Portraying a minuteman at Lexington’s famous Revolutionary War reenactment

In each episode, Flula can be found "shooting the poops", as he calls it, with the people he meets, including event organizers, participants, founders, and spectators. His goal is to understand what these quintessentially American event means to the communities involved, how each came to exist, and why they have all persisted - and of course, how he can take part! In addition, each segment is filled with brief anecdotes about Flula's childhood and his burgeoning love for America.

Infused with Flula’s infectious enthusiasm, Wanderlust, USA is an immersive and uproarious experience that reveals the heart of America in a unique way. Boom!

Ausgezeichnet!!

Love it love it love it. I'm not sure how much of it is put on, but Flula speaks English the way I speak German. Also, shout out to Bamberg, aka the best berg. Erlangen is ok, I guess. Its literally just a stop on the train ride to Nürnberg...

I mean....Flula is hilarious.

If you are familiar with Flula Borg's comedy or not, this is a hilarious way to view some American culture and history through a foreign experience. I really enjoyed his personal anecdotes especially as I was a military kid who lived abroad. I hope he writes a follow up.

A much needed escape into laughter

He’s silly but he is so adorable that it works. In times like these we all need a little more Flula.

Flula plays with American English like Johnny Utah plays with danger. Which is to say, um, goodly.
