Stoked to have found this podcast

Been a fan since 2019. Dope podcast. So happy to have found it! I wasn't able to find too many LATINX podcasts pre-2019 that I vibed with. This one has stayed a favorite.

I, Mula ,

One of my favorites!

I love y’all’s content so much but the inconsistency of Ruben’s audio is sooo frustrating. 😫

The best of the best!

Cassandra and Ruben are so insightful, witty, and funny! The best duo out here! ✨
