85 - The Guilt Trip

The Contrarians Summer Road Trip starts here! Listen to Alex and Julio as they fill up their tanks with motherly love and ride along with Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand into THE GUILT TRIP! A movie that took a chance to try to reclaim the Nagging Mom stereotype and turn it into a positive!

- Julio agrees with the rest of the world: HAMILTON is amazing. Also, BOOKSMART is really funny.

And you can listen to him talk about Peruvian politics on his own podcast, NACION COMBI. Aaaaand you can also check out all the stuff he’s written on his own website. Don’t know Spanish? He also did a podcast in English called LIVING IN PERU, about immigrants in - where else - Perú.
