Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #882 SUN, AUG 25 (08-25-2019): `
#1- The truth about English Language, tourist targeted, newspapers, magazines and other rags:
Every tourist and gringoized area has a few of them and they’re usually weeklies or monthlies and are almost always free. But as they say… nothin’ is for nuthin’ and you get what you pay for (same with this show..Ha!)
#2- Power outages in Latin America and why you really need a “PORTABLE” SOLAR POWER UNIT:
Today we discuss my recommendations and tips regarding portable solar power units. We’ll talk about my personal picks for all-in-one packages that will power up your basics (TV, Smartphones, computer, refrigerator lights) when there’s a momentary outage or the grid is down. This really good advice is not just for gringos and expats living in Latin America either. Soon enough poop will be getting pretty hairy up in Cleveland too!
#3- The state of Utility Companies in Latin America:
Private versus Public utility ownership- why gringos and expats vastly prefer private ownership while the locals greatly prefer public (government slug ) ownership
#4- Rating the Toilets of the World (someone had to do it):
Yes, it’s a report whose time has come, so today without further adoo.. doo, we discuss the good, bad and the ugly in the commode department. Nope there are no “great” porcelain thrones out there, but there are quite a few ecofriendly dual-flush jobs, to which a sane person can only exclaim… Jesus help us! … or maybe just plain WTF!
#5- The real reasons Ecuador threw Julian Assange under the bus:
What you have not been told by the Lame-stream Media and why, after listening to this screed, it’s doubtful you’ll ever want to execute your Plan B in Ecuador.
