    Episode Forty // Mothertime Sadness

    Episode Forty // Mothertime Sadness

    This is not about Lana del Rey. We named the episode before she went apeshit and couldn't come up with a better title in time lol. This episode is about our relationships with our mothers, familial trauma, and how we're working to break these cycles of abuse for future generations.

krlasanchez ,

This podcast is a GEM! 💖

Truly, these two feel like my mentors from afar. I have never come across a podcast that is so perfectly aligned to my personal life; from our similar queer, Latinx, borderland experiences to a shared obsession with My Chem and Gerard Way to an intense desire to fight anti-Black/Indigenous violence and unlearn problematic Chicano narratives. I’ve learned to be a become a better listener and I understand that development and learning never truly stops. I’ve been tuning in for the past couple of years and I’m never disappointed when I listen in. When I say this podcast and its hosts changed my life for the better, I really really mean it. To Ruben and Cassandra: THANK YOU for your work, I promise you two that it’s greatly appreciated and I owe a LOT of my personal growth to this podcast and I’ve also been introduced to tons and tons of different activists through your work! To anyone deciding whether or not to start listening: DO IT. But be willing to listen, learn, and probably UNLEARN a lot of things. I promise you won’t regret it!
