La Charreada


You probably know about the rodeo - the bull riding, the bronc busting and everything else. But what you may not know is that there is another rodeo - a Mexican Rodeo - that predates the version we are familiar with here.

In this month's episode of The Works we talk about charreadas and rodeos; vaqueros and cowboys. We also talk about how the differences between the Mexican and American versions of the sport are reflected in the buildings designed to showcase them.

As always, please talk a moment to listen to the story and if you like what you hear, subscribe to the podcast on iTunes where you can also rate the show and leave a comment.
