    Bonus Episode: Tanya Saracho on Tamarindo!

    We are dropping this gem in your feed during our holiday break because we could not wait to share our fabulous conversation with Tanya Saracho! Tanya is a playwright and television writer who currently serves as creator, showrunner, and executive producer of the critically-acclaimed series “Vida” on Starz. Named one of “TV Scribes to Watch” by Variety in 2018, Tanya most recently received the Rising Star award at the Outfest Legacy Awards. “Vida” won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, the series also won the Audience Award at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival, and made its season two premiere as an Official Selection of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival. Honestly there were way more awards and honors I could have shared with you all. But Basically, Tanya is a boss and in addition to Vida, she’s got a few other things cooking that maybe she’ll speak to a little later.  She’s originally from Sinaloa, Mexico and grew up along the Texas border. She now lives here in Los Angeles and we are so grateful she took the time to tell us more about her career and what's in store for season three of VIDA!

    "Baila, Baila, Baila"...Tamarindo's Music Episode!

    "Baila, Baila, Baila"...Tamarindo's Music Episode!

    On this special musical episode of Tamarindo, we have not one, but two very talented #WOC artists that are blending genres, while honoring their R & B roots to create some beautiful sounds.
    Before we get to our interviews with our special guests Abrina and Malia, we reflect on the #Urban Latinx music takeover that is fully entrenching itself in mainstream American culture at the moment. We also throw a few Latinx songs in the basura that we think are a little tooo played out. Let us know if you agree with us or what you would put in the basura instead!
    About our guests: 
    Abrina (https://open.spotify.com/artist/3FfeeQuvoeef4F19qixt58?si=7UueoPVtQuKJ12soNgtWFA) is a singer-songwriter, originally from San Diego, who’s  upcoming EP “Sunset Cliff” opens with a Latin trap single and is followed by nostalgic tracks that bring together the influences of SoCal R&B, Hip hop, and Latin music. Find her on all streaming platforms and on instagram: @abrinamusic (https://www.instagram.com/abrinamusic/)
     
    Malia (https://open.spotify.com/artist/5o6oaYrumOkkzsOmwZXJv6?si=rSDkragERYa962D6AyyqiQ) is an alternative soul/r&b singer, guitarist and songwriter. Her last project ‘Late Bloomer (https://open.spotify.com/album/1V2m2z2kQdL9TsJYjvlknA?si=HToGmiXsShS-u5X0TB0oOA) ’ has amassed millions of streams and has been featured on the Fox show “Star” with Queen Latifah and the upcoming ‘Truth be Told’ starring Octavia Spencer. She’s toured with Syd from The Internet and is a part of the artist collective Soulection. Her sounds are often called healing and her newest EP titled Ripe (https://open.spotify.com/album/3WdV5Ov5BEcIv7za8WUXBD?si=XSXRTh__RFO-Be1wtC76Fg)   is one of her rawest and most soulful deliveries yet. Find her on all streaming platforms and on instagram: @maliavibes (https://instagram.com/maliavibes)

    Discovering Your Energy Chupacabras and More About Stress!

    Discovering Your Energy Chupacabras and More About Stress!

    El #Estres! On this episode of Tamarindo, Ana Sheila talks to us about what #stress is really.  We learn why stress is not ALL bad but why it’s also more harmful than we think. Chronic stress is actually linked to the 6 leading causes of death. 
    Many of the stressors our communities face like financial or familial stress are not ones we can easily change without policy changes but Ana Sheila walks us through some of the things we CAN do to start changing our relationship with stress like changing our #mindset and discovering our #energychupacabras so that we can keep doing impactful work for our communities. 
    We include a technique used by the stress management company @Baskandbeing (https://www.instagram.com/baskandbeing/) . You can learn more about them here https://baskandbeing.com/
    We also highlight Encantos (http://www.encantosmedia.com/) , a 100% Latinx owned education entertainment company for families. We are running a book giveaway for their latest book @skeletitos (https://www.instagram.com/skeletitos/) so head to our instagram @tamarindopodcast (https://www.instagram.com/tamarindopodcast/) to enter. Giveaway ends on 9/24 at 11:59pm PST!

    We Belong! Mental Health Access in the Latinx Community

    We Belong! Mental Health Access in the Latinx Community

    On this episode of Tamarindo, we talk about #therapy and how it can help when we experience #trauma, a timely conversation with recent events that have targeted the #LatinxCommunity. 
    On August 3rd, the people of El Paso experienced one of the most harrowing attacks in recent history at the hands of a White supremacist that specifically targeted immigrants and Latinos. 
    We pause to reflect on that tragedy and other recent policy changes that are adversely affecting our community. As we referenced, this article outlines (https://medium.com/@WeAreUnidosUS/the-shadow-war-to-reshape-the-face-of-america-7c540750e495) how the Trump Administration is deliberately attempting to change the face of America so it looks less....well...brown. 
    At a time when folks in the White House want to tell our community that we don't belong, we know how important it can be to access mental health resources. As part of our commitment to our community's well being, we talk to the creator of the #LatinxTherapy podcast and directory, trauma Psychotherapist, Adriana Alejandre.  We discuss trauma, the barriers to accessing therapy, and how Adriana's work is building a community of practice for Latinx therapists.
    You'll hear us talk about #affirmations, which are statements that are designed to create self-change and how using these can remind us all that #WeBelong.  We're including a link on how to create and use affirmations so you can try it out for yourselves: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/smart-relationships/201403/affirmations-the-why-what-how-and-what-if  (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/smart-relationships/201403/affirmations-the-why-what-how-and-what-if)
    Latinx Therapy (https://latinxtherapy.com/) , is an internationally recognized directory and bilingual podcast that destigmatizes #mentalhealth & provides education to combat stigma through technology and mental health services. 
    Lastly we are excited to announce our first Tamarindo Calma event! We will be leading a #free #workout and #meditation for our LA listeners on Saturday, September 14th at Vista Hermosa Park. To RSVP,  just click on the link (https://forms.gle/4QYzEPPLZoAYxJpW8) .
    Please share the show with a friend and we hope you're excited to have #Tamarindopodcast back from break!
