El Ponte is a podcast that explores stories, connections, and cultures of Ladino, the diasporic language of Sephardic Jews spoken throughout the world. Although currently endangered, Ladino thrives in the intersections of its many components like Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Turkish, Greek, Italian, French, Arabic, and more. As hosts, Max and Ivy discuss themes of place, home, diaspora, linguistic and cultural transmission, and community. In each episode, they interview guests from all over the world about their relationships with Ladino. If you’re curious about languages, the Spanish-speaking world, Jewish culture, or the many ways in which language, culture, and community intersect, we invite you to cross El Ponte and explore with us.

Learning Ladino! ,

Amazing with a plethora of knowledge of Ladino!

This podcast shares much information in a conversational way. Connection with communities bring peace and that is something of which we all need more. The technical quality is great as the music! I’m looking forward to learning more!

Knowledge and wonder

I learned so much from this podcast. I am enlightened, educated, intrigued and excited for more podcasts to come. It’s a walk through history, culture and intimately personal stories. It crosses the bridges of language and love.
