Three days away

On Sunday January 14th, the first episode of Costa Rica Talk Radio will be “on the air”. It’s taken a little longer then I had anticipated but I’m finally ready to start the Costa Rica Podcast Show! The first show will focus on introducing the show to listeners so I will focus on discussing the show’s format and my hologopes and aspirations for the future of the podcast. I’m excited because I’ve already received feedback from a few folks who are waiting for the first show! I haven’t done any sort of promotion of for obvious reasons (still working on the first podcast) but a few of you have stumbled into the website and are waiting for me to kick things off! I know there is interest in Costa Rica and I haven’t seen any long-lasting Costa Rica podcast shows out there so I’m anxious to get rolling. I’m almost there, three more days! :-)

Happy New Year!

Just a quick post to wish you a Happy New Year 2007! The first podcast will be online in a few days so we can start of the Costa Rica Talk Radio Podcast in 2007!

The very first Costa Rica Talk Radio episode is just about ready to be posted online!  I have the first show wrapped and two more in the works.  I’m aiming to have the introductory podcast online on 12-30-06 and weekly shows to follow in 2007!

In the meantime I’ve added a Costa Rica Facts page to the website.  It includes a lot of information about Costa Rica plus maps and other statistical data on the country.  You can see the new page by clicking here: Costa Rica Fact Page.

Hello and welcome to Costa Rica Talk Radio!  I’m busy at work on this site which will be a podcast show 100% dedicated to Costa Rica.  The podcasts will cover the gamut of Costa Rica interests from tourism, relocating, baby boomers retiring in Costa Rica, real estate, ever day living in Costa Rica, general news and more!  So stay tuned I hope to be up in running very soon!
