Crossing Cultures #14: Bruno from Chile
In the podcast ‘Crossing Cultures’, host Sebas van Aert enters into conversation with people from other countries and cultures in an attempt to raise cultural (self-)awareness. This episode: Bruno from Chile.
This episode is about Chile, the longest country in the world. Sebas spoke to Bruno, who is from the capital Santiago and has traversed the whole country from north to south.
Among other things, he tells Sebas about a civil war that has been raging (quietly) for years, how the rest of the country looks at people from Santiago and why sometimes you can’t exercise outside in the country’s capital. Also, they discussed Chile’s freshly elected president Gabriel Boric, a millennial who is known for being an outspoken feminist. And did you know that ‘weon weon weon’ really means something in Chilean Spanish?
