Café con Chisme is a Latinx podcast created and hosted by siblings Yaz + Seb. We see chisme as a tool and practice for social justice—inspired by the mujeres and femmes who raised us and taught us how to be fierce, tell a good story, and speak truth to power—all with a little laughter. Join us as we take on cultural critiques of race, politics, and pop culture—to imagine new possibilities and more just worlds.

So much love for this show

This show has been a favorite of mine for years. Anytime I finish an episode, I’m eagerly waiting for the next one. Honestly, this is the only show that I’ve been able to consistently listen to for an extended period of time. The humor, the political analysis, the authenticity all make this such a good show. So much love for Yaz and Seb from this disabled and queer Chicano!

Not for me

As a Mexican American; I found this podcast to be very disappointing. I don’t understand how you can talk about injustices with out recognizing the opportunities we have as Americans. For the love of everything... you can’t speak about how generalizations are comprised of an individuals experience but in the same breath speak about your generalizations as fact, when you literally both don’t know the “exact numbers or facts” to support your statements. I don’t expect my ideals or beliefs to align exactly with both of yours but I was hoping to get a new perspective but this podcast seems very one sided and instead of unifying, it appears to want to divide us. This is the last thing I need to hear right now in 2020.
