Andres Clemente

Great to have Andres back with us this morning. Today he takes a critical look at the animation movie “Inside out”. So what did he think? “Pixar manages to create a thoughtful and poignant sequel to one of their most complex and profound worlds. The only issue is that their main characters start the film, sorta forgetting the lessons learned from the previous movie. Still, Inside Out 2 is a great representation of how Puberty creates new emotions, and the importance of keeping them in balance”.

In the last hour today our guest is Eliecer Izquierdo, someone with a lot of experience on the guitar and performs a couple of pieces for us in the studio. Eliecer was born in the Republic of Panama, in Central America.
