ABUELITO is a podcast that speaks about the secrets and hardships that are both hidden and revealed to first-generation immigrants and their children as a result of diaspora through the lens of first-generation Uruguayan-American, Tachi. This 3-part mini-series explores how much of cultural memory and trauma is inherited generation-to-generation and how this inheritance is further complicated by having both the oppressed and oppressors in our lineage.
