This week Corey welcomes Lisle Head in for segment one.  He and Lisle talk about some of the new bagels at Green Room Café, Updates on the Jungle Jam concert giveaway, and the Tope in Jacó at the end of November.

Dan Stevens joins Corey for a brief talk about, Doug Smith, Humor a lo Tico, helicopter drug trafficking in Costa Rica, and some of glaring differences between San Jose and the Central Pacific beach towns. 


Noam Kerner from Raices del Sol takes Corey’s call to discuss their life-changing Natural Building and Integrative Farming program in the most stunning private wildlife refuge in Costa Rica for an intense learning experience filled with discovery and adventure.

Finally, Andrew Woodbury calls in to talk about his recent special to the Tico Times about extreme poverty in Jacó.   In a piece entitled “El Hueco” (the hole), Andrew exposes an often overlooked consequence of popular tourist towns.  For those interested in contributing, or simply finding out how they can help, we suggest the following organizations:
