Feliz Año Nuevo, esperamos que todos ustedes estén disfrutando de 2017. Este es nuestro sexto podcast. Discutimos los premios LCB y Peñarol.
2016 May of been a year to forget because of many uninspiring events that occurred in our world but none the less, here I present to you, the return of the good ol’ La Celeste Blog Awards.
