Costa Rica News – The Costa Rican Times has teamed up with Q CostaRica to provide multiple modes of information sharing for local and foreign expats in order to get Costa Rica news and knowledge to listeners.
The Editors of these two Costa Rican media sources, Dan and Rico, have joined forces to start presenting a weekly podcast talking about the the current news in Costa Rica. With over 30 years of living in Costa Rica between them, they are able to present a unique insight into the land of “Pura Vida”.
“Rico” (one of the Co-Founders of Inside Costa Rica) is the crazy mind behind the Q media websites (including Q Costa Rica). His websites are engaging, provocative, informative and sometimes off the wall, where you either like or you leave it. The same goes for him, like him or leave him.There is no middle ground. No compromises, only a passion to present reality as he sees it!
This week Rico and Dan discuss about various topics and news in Costa Rica.
1. Rainy Season wrapping up in Costa Rica
2. The Strike at the Moin Port in Limon
3. Illegal Fishing Around Cocos Island
4. Jairo Mora Trial Beginning
This is followed by an interview with Achmat Hassiem who is a great white shark attack survivor that now uses his voice for shark conservation & other environmental issues. Hear about what he experienced that fateful day when he lost his leg and how he has used what some would see as a disability to become someone that motivates and inspires anyone that has the pleasure of meeting him.
From Nov. 4-9, Achmat will be attending the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) in Quito, Ecuador.
