Daniel Alarcón Talks with OTM about Hispanic Media

Courtesy Radio Ambulante

The always entertaining media watchdogs of On The Media dedicated an hour of their show to discussing the changing face of Hispanic media. Lots of interesting segments (an interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, a piece on the Colombian version of Breaking Bad) but a standout featured local author and radio producer Daniel Alarcón discussing pan-Latin American identity.

In addition to being a novelist, Alarcón is the producer and host of Radio Ambulante, a Spanish-language podcast that’s been called This American Life, if that American life included Latin American life. In his interview with Bob Garfield, Alarcón talks about the universality of certain Latin American stories and how technology has reshaped the way a generation of Latinos are thinking about their identity. Interesting stuff.

The whole show is definitely worth listening to, but you can hear Alarcón in the clip below:
