After a few months without coming back to the studio, Slade and I return to say goodbye … kind of. Since the last episode, we have both been working on new projects: he’s launched a new blog called “The Obsessionist,” and I’m about to release a new podcast on Mexican politics, society, and culture titled “Independientemente.”
We hope to soon be back with new episodes for this podcast. So, as my English idioms fail me at the moment I turn to Spanish now: esto no es un adiós, es un hasta luego.
Shaina Adams is back on the show. We recorded this conversation before the school year started. In it we talk about Shaina’s semester abroad and summer camp. I was so interested in listening to how those two adventures affected her life. She had deliberately put herself in two situations pretty far from her comfort zone. You can read her blog here.
Also, we have Amanda Ashburn on the show telling us a summer camp story. Like Shaina, she also worked at a summer camp this past summer break.
Finally, the song featured in this week’s episode is “Ven a Jesús” from Guillermo Ximenez’s soon-to-be-released first album. You can listen to the previous episode to learn more.
