Oh bother. I fixed the site and the RSS feed, but it is a huge problem to fix the show itself so that will probably stay wrong.

I think it turned out pretty good except for me speaking like I’m on 5 redbulls! if anyone has any questions feel free to contact me.

I enjoyed this podcast. A few corrections about names and pronunciation. (My mom is from Colombia so I know this stuff)

As another comment says, it’s Colombia, not Columbia.
Cartagena is not pronounced with the Ñ, as you were doing on the Podcast. A lot of Americans like to say it like that for some reason.
Finally, it is San Andres, not San Andreas.

Regards.

Hi Chris,

Great podcast! I’m not sure whether it is OK to post a link to a Podcast I recently made in Cartagena, Colombia, but if so, here it is:

Many thanks, and keep up the great shows!

Thanks for the podcast, I’m actually living in Medellin, CO right now and would recommend visiting. It’s not dangerous like everyone thinks, totally an exaggeration, I’ve been here for a year and haven’t been bothered once. The food, culture, and scenery is spectacular!
