offensive beyond words
Biased, offensive, "third world" vs "first world" terminology and prejudices. The more you listen the more angry you should get! He refers to Latin America as a homogenous slum of "dangerous buses" with "a lack of third world common sense",etc. Horrible stereotypes on "common Latin people" and views from a VERY narrow perspective on a region of diverse nations, cities, and people.
-from a proud American but ashamed of this expats view!
**If you want a LAUGH though, albeit offensive, he has an idiotic view on how "gang banger LA pants" have entered Latin American teen style...hint, it has to do with "deported aliens that have come back to the third world"!!! Same reason of why some "Latins" will approach you to practice their English. Not because they are learning English, but because they are former "illegals" that were deported from the US.
Straight Forward, Non PC View of Latin America
John Mueller does an excellent job of providing us with a view of an ex-pat living life in Latin America. It's an informative, relaxed and often humorous description of the many cultural aspects of living in countries that are much different from our very own. I appreciate his straight forward, non-pc view of dealing with so many issues that are easy to tackle here in the USA. Keep up the great work John!
Love the podcast
I disagree with the post before mine. This podcast is excellent and I would highly recommend it. Mr. Muller tells it like it is. This podcast is definatelly not politically correct and that is one of the things that make it great. If you want a sugar coated look at living in Latin America you need to look elsewhere. I look forward to every new podcast.
