“The 20-Something Life” is the radio show that gives stories and advice for twenty-first century twenty-somethings. This week, we bring you a second show in Spanish! ¡A continuación en Español!

“The 20-Something Life,” que se traduce (mal) como “la vida de las personas de 20-29 años,” es el programa de radio que da historias y aconsejos para la generación joven actual. Esta semana, presentadora Colenn Berracasa conversa con Felipe Herrera Zenteno, un chileno de veinte y cuantos años que recién terminó sus estudios de literatura y lingüística inglesa en La Universidad Católica. Hablamos de su gran participación en la comuna de intercambio, girar una organización que fue un modelo a nivel mundial, el tipo de persona que quiere conocer a los alumnos extranjeros, la ola reciente de inmigración a Chile, primeras impresiones de los EEUU, trabajos que cuentan con viajes al extranjero, las relaciones Chile-Argentina y Estados Unidos-Canadá, las opciones de trabajo para los que terminan carreras en Inglés, unas comparaciones entre Chile y Norteamérica, los deseos contradictorios de trabajar, viajar, estudiar, y ser “responsable,” y el hecho que, cruzando muchas culturas, tenemos mucho en común.
