This week is the season finale of Season 2 for BA Cast. This is another slightly-longer episode and ends the season in a nice way. This was a really successful and fun season for the show, and we grew a lot in our material and listener participation. We hope those of you who listened enjoyed it too, and we’ll look forward to providing more material in Season 3. Chau!
This week’s episode of BA Cast is a short, and a very useful one at that. This episode will teach you all of the standard Spanish words to unlearn when you visit Argentina, as well as the words that you should know if you go to other Spanish-speaking countries. One example of this is the word “carro” which is used in Spain to say car. However, in Argentina it is more common to hear “auto” or even “coche”. Take a few minutes to listen and learn.
This week’s episode of BA Cast is now live, with how to properly use the word “Che” among other things. “Che” is a commonly used word in Argentina, but 99% of the time is has nothing to do with “The Che”, in reference to Ernesto “Che” Guevara. There’s also an interesting expat chat with an Argentine who relocated to Spain a long time ago, and a new addition to the BA Cast team.
This week’s episode of BA Cast is a special on the tradition of the Argentine asado, or barbecue. Argentina is already known worldwide for having some of the best steak available, and in this piece, the team talks about the traditions behind eating and grilling with friends. We finish the Laws of Asado and also talk to a famous Argentine food critic, Pietro Sorba. Buen provecho!
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. Plus, we’ve got a great rendition of “Yellow Submarine” with a special Buenos Aires twist.
