In this episode (recorded a few months back, we're almost caught up!) we discuss the impact of Wonder Woman and puzzling genetic ancestry results vs. self perception.
Our guest, self proclaimed "Chiquita Bruijta" Chelsea Smith (founder of Brooklyn Brujeria and Event Producer for Ministerio de la Parranda)discusses the "trend" of modern mysticism, the importance of giving credit to traditional healers rooted in indigenous cultures, Puerto Rico's limbo status, and how she has turned her authentic spiritual practice into a business that helps others.
