Alt.Latino Visits NPR's Newest Podcast: Radio Ambulante

Email a Friend
Hosted by Peruvian-American novelist Daniel Alarcón, <em>Radio Ambulante</em> is a Spanish-language podcast that uses long-form audio journalism to tell important but neglected and under-reported Latin American and Latino stories.

When you listen to Alt.Latino, you get access to arts and culture from across the Spanish-speaking world. But the show is hardly the last stop for up-to-date information from Latin America and the U.S.

That's where Radio Ambulante comes in. The show is NPR's newest podcast, and it features voices and stories, in Spanish, that you're not likely to hear from other media outlets.

This week, Alt.Latino invited the show's host and co-founder, Daniel Alarcón, to come in and give us a glimpse into how Radio Ambulante covers Latin America. From personalizing the Puerto Rican debt crisis to contemplating what defines beauty, these are deeper dives into issues that affect our lives.
