Today we talk history, international diplomacy, and the life of a foreign correspondent in the USA.  My guest is Stéphane Bussard.  Stéphane is the US correspondent at Le Temps (www.letemps.ch), the leading French-language newspaper in Switzerland and a world-class publication. 

Stéphane has a very interesting background which has included being an exchange student in Leipzig, in late 1989 when it was still known as East Germany or the German Democratic Republic, and being an eye witness to the fall of the Berlin Wall, one of the most monumental events in the history of the 20th Century.  This event greatly influenced Stéphane’s decision to become a journalist and a foreign correspondent in particular.

We talk about this in the episode, as well as loads of other interesting topics:

•Geneva, and its place in world diplomacy;
•Uncovering secret talks between the United States, the EU and Iran;
•Being a foreign correspondent in the USA;
•Stéphane’s work tracing Barack Obama’s youth and how it shaped him as a President;
•Stéphane’s take on Obama’s legacy, including thoughts on Iran and Cuba;
•His coverage of the civil rights movement;
•The Ferguson riots;
•The upcoming US elections;
•The role of the media and journalism
•And more!
