Hilarious

Every week I look forward to the hilarious episode from this podcast. Jenny and Joanna make their topics so relatable! They are both down to earth, open, and honest. As a Venezuelan American I love listening to them speak in Spanglish (*normalizing hearing Spanglish is another topic I could go on about for forever) and talk about Latin culture. :)

Amazing

I’ve been looking for ways to practice my Spanish skills and this podcast is awesome because of the Spanglish. I love learning about different aspects of Hispanic culture from a hyphenated perspective. These ladies never fail to make me laugh!
