Friday, October 7, 2016 at 1:00 PM – Bolivia!
Join Doc and host Danielle Orr for for their monthly feature on great athletes and sport from the Americas and Caribbean and their connection to popular culture and politics.
Remember the movie classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid with Robert Redford and Paul Newman? The two real-life American adventurers and outlaws escaped to….Bolivia! This month, join Danielle when she speaks with Doc live from Sucre, Bolivia! They’ll talk about one of the biggest games of the year – Bolivia’s re-vitalized national team as they take on powerhouse Olympic Gold Medal winner, Brazil, in a qualifying match at the halfway point for the upcoming World Cup in Russia. We’ll discuss the the world of ChiCha, the famous corn-based beer and the game of sapo (toad or frog) in the tiny town of Yotalla, Bolivia where the locals looked on as Doc and the players got animated with Bolivia’s own traditional home-brew! And we’ll finish with one of Bolivia’s folk singing treasures – Zulma Yugar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cIdhgP_-ZQ
