Roger Bennett is a co-host of Men In Blazers and the author of (Re)born in the USA: An Englishman's Love Letter to His Chosen Home. “So much of my work is about human tenacity. That value of perseverance, of driving onwards. I believe life is about darkness and happiness. I believe that nothing is given, you fight for everything. And how you operate in moments of doubt and darkness ultimately define you. So I talk a lot as a professional about tenacity. What I've never linked that to before was my own biography. What did surprise me when I read the book as not being about me, but just read it as a book, was how bloody tenacious I was in fleeting moments of real awfulness.” Show notes: @rogbennett 23:30 "The Men in Blazers Show with John Stones and Alex Caruso" (The Men in Blazers Show • March 2021) 29:30 Men in Blazers 29:30 NHL Now 29:30 Band of Brothers podcast 29:30 HBO's Succession Podcast 33:30 "Pat Maroon" (Men in Blazers on Ice) Learn more about your ad choices.

Roger Bennett, co-host of Men in Blazers on NBC Sports and author of (Re)born in the USA, joins the Dom Giordano Program to discuss his love of the United States of America. In the book, Bennett unfolds his love story to the country as an Englishman. Bennett was born and raised in Liverpool, an English boy in an American boy's body, with a mural of the American flag on his childhood bedroom. Through his love of American pop culture, a young Bennett set a dream of becoming an American. Now an adult with American citizenship and 4 naturally born children, Bennett displays his patriotism with incredible stories of his youth and time spent going through the immigration process in the new book. Bennett tells Giordano what made him fall in love with the country, and why, even as things seem more and more divisive, his love for the USA stays strong.
