#053 - On The Bus Team from Guayaquil - Brandon, Daniel, Max, and Patrick

February 14, 2018

Carnival was absolutely absurd and we still made it out with all of our limbs attached. As we prepared to cross the Peruvian border on Valentine's Day we broke out the mic's and started recording a podcast.

 

You don't get one you don't just get two but you get all four of us mic'd up and ready to record on the bus. From our first-hand accounts to our historical and socio-economic takes on South America and the world as a whole, no stone is left unturned on this episode. 

 

This podcast was recorded on the bus in Guayaquil, Ecuador on the bus.

#052 - Juan Carlos and Diego Mendez - Musical Influencers of Ecuador

February 7, 2018
00:0000:00

 

Although music is known for breaking barriers and merging communities the cost to learn and own musical equipment still prohibits many from recognizing their full musical potential. Quito is one prime example of this with the Statue of The Virgin Mary historically dividing north and south, rich and poor. 

 
El Musican Project was founded, by Juan Carlos and Diego Mendez in order to break down these barriers and allow music to serve its true purpose. From offering scholarships to lower-income students to partnering with companies such as The Numa Project, which seeks to build low-cost musical equipment out of recyclable goods. This isn’t just a goodwill project these guys are looking to personally inject a stronger musical culture and. Community into not just Quito but all of Ecuador itself.
 
 
In the episode, we discuss everything from the historical aspects of music cultures from Ecuador and Latin America to socio-economic and cultural issues facing Ecuadorians today. 
 
 
This episode was recorded at IMPAQT hub in Quito, Ecuador. Not only did we sit down with Juan Carlos and Diego Mendez but we also sat down with one of their lead musicians JD Villacis.
 
 
Be sure to check out our bus stop with El Musican Project on our youtube channel.
 
If you’d like to donate or find out more about El Musican Project you can check out the website here and their socials on Facebook and Instagram.
 

We recorded this episode in Quito, Ecuador at the IMAPQTO workspace.

#050 - Rabbi Elad Villegas - The Forgotten Jews of the Inquisition

January 25, 2018
00:0000:00

Bello, Colombia. A city historically dominated by a reverent Christian community. Yet whispers throughout the city insist on a different ancestry, one hidden by 500 years of seclusion. Then, over the past 15 years, something strange began to happen. An Orthodox Jewish community, almost out of thin air, emerged within Bello. Where did this community pop up from?

 

Insert Juan Carlos Villegas, now Rabbi Elad Villegas, the devout man behind the growing Jewish community. A former evangelical pastor, after a work trip to Israel, he became convinced that Judaism was the true way to God. He immediately renounced his pastor-ship and converted to Judaism. Despite his controversial position, Rabbi Elad doesn't persuade anyone to convert to Judaism, rather, he leads by example.

 

What then is the connection between Bello and Judaism? Many Sephardic Jews converted to Catholicism during the Spanish Inquisition to hide their identities. They then migrated over to the New World and set up communities under Spain's new colonies (present-day Colombia), losing their original faith in the process. According to the Rabbi, the people of the Antioquia have all the characteristics of the Jewish people, from avoiding a diet with pork to lighting candles on the Sabbath. and he is just helping them rediscover their roots. 

 

Despite his detractors and controversial past, he has proven himself a true servant of Judaism for his community, Comunidad Judia de Antioquia. With recent acceptance of Israel and the surrounding Jewish communities that once rejected their claims, Rabbi Elad has plans to help the community even further (which we discuss in the show). 

 

This episode spans the Rabbi's search for identity, the differences between experienced religions, and outlook of the Comunidad Judia de Antioquia.

 

As the rabbi speaks Spanish and Hebrew, he had a translator speaking for him. We edited the Rabbi out of the episode for the translation. We're always trying new things here on the bus so let us know your opinion on this style of show. This was filmed and recorded at the synagogue in Bello, Colombia. Check out the YouTube channel for the video version.

Fresh off of his commentating of the WSOP we have Joe Stapleton, aka @Stapes. A poker commentator for ESPN and Poker Stars, based out of Los Angeles, California.

As a communications major hailing from Boston University, Joe has always used comedy as a driver. Known for his social media vigilantism, Joe has used his comedy to make a name for himself as a poker commentator, stand up comedian and a social media influencer. 
 
In his early days of poker commentating, Stapes launched a very successful podcast called Two Jacks in a Hole. The show had several episodes that cracked the Itunes comedy top 10. Even with the found success in podcasting Stapes sheds a light on enjoying any victory no matter big or small. Maybe if something was great its not supposed to be left as is. 
 
You can connect with Stapes on Twitter, @Stapes, and on Facebook at @JoeStapesStapleton
 
 
We love hearing from our amazing bus riding patrons with new questions and ideas for shows. Send an email to onthebuspodcast@gmaill.com.
