    Ep. 90 - When Will I Be Happy With My Body?

    As we've gotten older, we've fortunately gotten wiser, but there are still areas we struggle to heal. And for us, that's our body image issues... the age-old, bull-shittery of picking apart our bodies and not appreciating them for all the amazing work they do daily. In this cozy convo, we unpack our internal conflicts and frustrations. As you'll hear, this is still an area of big learning and healing that we're working on. Can you relate or do you have suggestions for healing? Email us at: hola@waitholduppodcast.com

    Ep. 88 - It's Time to Claim Being a Bruja (w/ The Brujas of Brooklyn)

    Ep. 88 - It's Time to Claim Being a Bruja (w/ The Brujas of Brooklyn)

    Doctoras Miguelina Rodríguez and Griselda Rodríguez-Solomon are changing the way women connect to their divine feminine and their personal power in a patriarchal culture. Known as the Brujas of Brooklyn, these Afro-Dominican twins are challenging all the societal norms and expectations placed on women and creating space for others to do the same. In this conversation, we talk about our religious upbringings and finding identity in the word 'bruja' and how we all should connect with our womb and our menstrual cycles to experience transformation.

    Ep. 87 - How to Deal with Intense Pressure to Succeed (w/ Melissa Barrera & Leslie Grace)

    We've got Melissa Barrera and Leslie Grace, two of the leading ladies of "In the Heights" on the podcast this week! This convo, immediately turned into four homegirls chatting as we discussed their roles in this INCREDIBLE film, how they manage the pressure to succeed, honor their culture, and take care of their mental health. It's so dope to see these two Latinas in the most anticipated film of the summer, and even better to see all they represent for la cultura. You don't wanna miss this chat or the film, In the Heights - out on June 11th.

Episode 20 review

I just started listening to the podcast, the first episode i heard was "Stop asking women when they are gonna get married" and oh my god I couldn't relate more, seriously I felt like these are the kind of struggles that as an independent woman in my late 20's im facing too and it is nice to hear that other women from a hispanic background are brave enough to just talk about it! The podcast is great with truly honest conversations!!
