Ep. 43 – Jennie’s Incredible Tijuana Dinner

As we mentioned last week we’re losing our nanny, but good news! We’ve found a bilingual daycare near Jennie’s work. We’re both excited and nervous at the same time about this. In this episode we talk through how we decided on this and how Jack is doing with his own Spanish.

Ep. 42 – Comida de Chile

This episode is all about food. Specifically food from Santiago, Chile. Jennie’s recent trip to Chile gave her many opportunities to eat the local fare and enjoy the culture. In this episode she shares all about her cooking class, the markets, and challenges of a foreign language menu.

Ep. 41 – Jennie Regresada de Chile

We continue to start off the show speaking in Spanish. Jennie’s back from Chile and ready to share about her time in Santiago and the coastline of Chile. She loved speaking in Spanish while there and has some fun experiences to share. We couldn’t fit it all in one episode so catch part 2 next week!

Ep. 40 – While Jennie’s Away

Jennie sent us some clips from her trip to Chile so in this episode you get to hear what it’s really like speaking Spanish in another country. Also, Ben has a question for you. ¡Gracias por Escuchar!

Ep. 39 – !Vamos a Chile!

Jennie is going to Chile! She’s super excited to visit a new country and take in the culture and language with her good friend. In this week we talk about her preparations for the trip and some of the things she is looking to do while in Chile. She’ll be back in a week and hopes to record while there so next week stay tuned for some potential clips of her trip.

Ep. 34 – Oaxaca Journal pt 3 – Mezcal Tours

Part 3 of our journal through Oaxaca is all about Mezcal. We heard about this unforgettable mezcal educational tour of some palenques (Mezcal Distilleries) from some friends we made at the bed and breakfast. They gave us the guys info who we quickly called the following day and scheduled our tour for Sunday, the day before we were leaving.

Ep. 33 – Oaxaca Journal pt 2 – Tours in Spanish

In part 2 of our Journal through Oaxaca we take you on a tour through their unique botanical garden, to the ancient ruins of Monte Albán, and through the Museo de Textil. Monte Albán is a special place that reminds you how old the region of Oaxaca is. We toured this ancient center of the Zapotec people almost entirely in Spanish on a hot day with our toddler. The botanical gardens offered a peak into the Oaxacan culture and native landscape while the Museo de Textile showed just how colorful and expressive their people are.

Ep. 32 – Oaxaca Journal pt 1 – First Impressions

This is Part 1 of our journal through Oaxaca. We are excited to share all about this beautiful and vibrant city in southern Mexico. We start with where you should stay, what to do, and how the food and art can’t be missed, enjoy! And look forward to Part 2 and 3 in the coming weeks.

Ep. 28 – Interview with the nomad Cedric Dahl

A friend of ours, Cedric Dahl, recently returned from a ten month trip to Spain and some nearby countries so the day he got back we bought him some BBQ and locked him in the studio to hear his story.
