S4 E33: Americanophilia vs. Americanophobia

On this show, we’ll talk about the relationships between Argentina and the US on a diplomatic-government level with a journalist who compiled all of the wikileaks wires that pertain Argentina.

We’ll also be chamuyando with representatives of the two extremes of Argentines when it comes to the US, the die-hard pro-American who loves Miami and hates Argentina and the super anti-American who blames the “land of the free” for everything.

Culture, politics, prejudices: we cover much of that.

And we talk about theatre in BA with an actor.
