Let’s do that radio thing

Let’s do that radio thing

“Let’s do that radio thing.” That’s how Radio Ambulante started. Today, on our 7th birthday, we asked Carolina Guerrero and Daniel Alarcón – creators of this podcast – to tell us how the idea came up, the difficulties they faced when they started, and the road that led to NPR.

We began working on this episode a few weeks ago when we asked you to send us any questions you had for the team. In the more than 140 episodes we’ve produced, we’ve tried to chronicle how Latin America sounds, and your questions inspired us to think about what we do and share our creative process with you. We hope you’ll enjoy the answers.

Thank you for listening and celebrating this birthday with us!

If you’d like to send us your birthday wishes, you can use the hashtag #PiñataRadioAmbulante on Twitter or Instagram.

You can also read a Spanish transcript of the episode.

We would’ve wanted to answer all your questions, but time constraints forced us to pick only a few. Still, we want to thank each and every one of the listeners who took the time to send us their questions:
