Yesterday Ricky Rubio appeared on a Spanish language talkshow called El Hormiguero or “The Anthill.” I don’t speak Spanish — sorry 12 years of Spanish classes (and mom and dad)! — so I went to the always factual, and never once incorrect Wikipedia to find out what this show was all about.
[It’s] a Spanish television program with a live audience focusing on comedy, science, and politics.
So it’s basically like RadioLab, This American Life, and Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me all had a baby and then sent it to live in Spain. Cool. So which one of these weird purple things is Ira Glass?
I’m betting the one on the left. It seems more dignified. Anyway, Ricky Rubio was there to play some Connect 4, basketball-style.
