Bonus! - Why Do I Own This?

Movie lovers know movie collections tend to grow out of control and sometimes you find yourself staring at your dvd/blu-ray shelves and wondering how some of that stuff got there. We interrupt The Contrarians Road Trip with a brief pit stop in which Alex and Julio pick the oddest movies in their respective collections and ask themselves “Why do I own this?” The answers will NOT shock you but they WILL entertain you!

He also did a podcast in English called LIVING IN PERU, about immigrants in - where else - Perú.
