Political talk radio?
- Hi, I want to start listening to the radio in the background all the
time to help me learn Spanish (how the words sound and should be
pronounced). I prefer to listen to people talking than to music, and
since I'm interested in politics I was wondering if Costa Rica had any
good political talk radio and/or news stations like are common in the
Please let me know, thanks!

Whether or not you like the message, many of them tend to speak more
slowly and enunciate better than "newscasters."

You may want to give FM 93.5 Radio Monumental a try. In the mornings,
after Panarama and the news, Amelia Rueda gets pretty political and
talks with candidates, ministers, even the president from time to
time. They have already aired a series of presidencial debates (sept
16th and 23rd) and she usually gets right to the point. After her time
there is the usual talk about health/child care/sex/or pets depending
on the day of the week. In the early afternood there is another
political type show, followed by Pilo con Rueda which talks about alot
of problems in Costa Rica in a more jocular manner. Of course, this
being Costa Rica, there is a lot of talk of Soccer or Soccer games if
the Sele or Sub-Sele or any other team of interest may be playing.
It's not the same as US talk radio, but CR is not the US. Have fun.
