The new episode of BA Cast is available, titled Meet the Suegros. This is an extended episode in which we end the month’s topic on educational differences between Argentina and the United States. This episode really has it all and was very well edited by Fernando. We’ve got discussions with numerous folks who have studied in Argentina and the United States, as well as a Paraguayan friend of mine, Sebastian, who is now studying here in Washington, DC. Also, we got a spoof movie trailer on Meet the Parents called Meet the Suegros. You’ll need to listen to the whole episode to catch it all.
