Friday at 11am: Radio Ambulante's new English-language special


Immediately following the Your Call media roundtable, stay tuned for a new English-language special from Radio Ambulante, the groundbreaking Spanish-language podcast that uses the narrative journalism associated with This American Life to tell the stories of Latin America and Latino America.

Hear how a forbidden word unlocks a sense of belonging for a young Argentinean kid in South Carolina, how one artist has used her work for immigration reform and protest, and about an infamous World Cup qualifying game, played in a stadium that doubled as a political prison. From Chile and Argentina to South Carolina and Michoacán, Radio Ambulante and PRI present Stories from Latin America.  Friday, May 9th at 11am.

KALW is proud to be the host station for Radio Ambulante, now heard on radio throughout Latin America and recently awarded Colombia's most prestigious journalism award, the Premio Simon Bolivar.
