S4 E35: Coming Home (Season Finale)

What is the meaning of “home”? How do you define it? Is it a physical place, a connection? Is it the place where you were raised, where family is, where you found love and happiness?

We also hear from expats who returned home to live.

And this is in connection to the fact that…Daniel is going back home, after 10 years in Argentina.

But this is not the end of the show! Find out the details listening to the cast.

Hope you enjoyed season 4 in Radio Led as much as we did. See you around folks!

S4 E29: Analyzing The Simpsons

There are few cultural products that are as cross-cultural as The Simpsons, that have been translated to tens of languages…yet, they are at the same time a 100% American expression. We discuss this and other topics related to the most famous family of Springfield.

And since the Simpsons rose to worldwide fame in the 1990s, we take advantage to talk about that decade a bit, and discover the differences between teenage fun in Argentina and the US through the experiences of Dan and Fer.

Spanglish Playground: phrases from Martín Fierro, the most famous and quoted book in Argentina. We talk a bit about American equivalents and Dan reads like a Gaucho, in English.

S4 E26: Robert Cox, great journalist, on reporting the dictatorship

Hey, there. We bring you a special program today…

This is  an interview Fer taped at his job with the Public National Radio of Argentina, back in December 2009.

British-born Cox ran the Buenos Aires Herald daily for several years, including the Junta regime period, when it was the only newspaper in the country that actually inform on what was going on. His insight on Argentina is unique and enlightening. And he’s a great story-teller.

Excerpts of this chat, were used on BA Cast’s Proceso-Dirty War Documentary that you can find on our website. Now we bring you the full conversation. Hope you enjoy it.
