Founder Wants to Expand Radio Ambulante Throughout Americas

SAN JUAN – Writer Daniel Alarcon wants to expand his Radio Ambulante project so that the Spanish-language online program creates partnerships throughout Latin America and broadens its audience all over the region.

Alarcon, who is in San Juan to participate in this week’s Festival de la Palabra, said Tuesday in an interview with Efe that, despite the fact that the program is already gathering stories from the main countries in the region, there are still many opportunities for contributions that can be explored.

The Radio Ambulante podcast features stories anywhere from five to 40 minutes long about Latin American issues that will be familiar to anybody who speaks Spanish.

“The stories are taped in countries like Mexico and Chile and in cities like Los Angeles, New York and Lima, but the format can be taken to many other sites,” said the Peruvian-born Alarcon, named one of the best young U.S. writers by The New Yorker.

This project “tries to bring to radio the esthetics of a good written feature,” he said.

“Radio goes where books don’t,” said Alarcon after recalling that in his native Peru a large portion of the public does not buy books.

To broaden the variety of contributions and audiences, Alarcon said that negotiations are under way with broadcasters in different countries throughout the region.

During his visit to San Juan, the writer also intends to look for stories for Radio Ambulante.
