Deep conversations with powerful Latino forces

Antonio has a tendency to get right to the heart of matters with his guests. This is a podcast that helps broadens your insight to folks you know, and turns you on to wise folks you don’t know. If you are Latino you will feel more strengthened to know that you are a part of such a cultural force. If you are not Latino it will provide you a window into an often overlooked and underserved and yet very powerful community.

Excellent podcast!

“I am still learning.” Latinidad…from thought leaders, successful entrepreneurs, artists of the spoken and written word, performing and visual artists, and socio-political activists…the list could go on. Our past, present, and future coalescing toward an evolving identity and agency. The Latine experience in the USA. Love it!
