    Comedian Laura Di Lorenzo guides us with great advice: have no fear, take chances, and have a fun career (and more).

    Comedian Laura Di Lorenzo guides us with great advice: have no fear, take chances, and have a fun career (and more).

    Comedian, Voice Over Actress, and the Host of Laura Corner on We Are Mitu tells us what she’s not afraid of. Looking not-pretty for a comedy sketch as Abuela Mirta? Not afraid. Taking chances by moving from Miami to LA? Not afraid. Telling embarrassing personal stories on each episode of her We Are Mitu show? Nope. Not afraid at all. Thankfully, she shares advice, and gives hope to others too afraid to take chances. She’s living proof that dreams of having a career in comedy (or any other creative venture) do come true! (Note: And she says being “perfect” is not a requirement. Score!)

    Voiceover Actor, Producer, and Comedian Carlos Alazraqui (& over 100 VIPs you know & love) stops by to inspire you! ( ... and make you laugh!)

    Voiceover Actor, Producer, and Comedian Carlos Alazraqui (& over 100 VIPs you know & love) stops by to inspire you! ( ... and make you laugh!)

    This episode of CATALINA Stars is kind of a first for young podcast host and journalist Cristina Areu. Instead of introducing you to one awesome and inspirational VIP Latinxer, doing amazing things, Cristina is bringing you many VIPs. You'll hear words to inspire you and funny tales to make you laugh -- from familiar voices you know and love. How is this possible? How is Cristina sitting with so many, yet one, bright stars? It's easy when Latinx superstar, and award-winning voice actor, Carlos Alazraqui stops by the show! Cristina throws away her podcast rule book and brings you a fun/inspirational talk from the "VIPs" you love: from Rocko from Nickelodeon’s NEW ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE, to Skylar from Disney’s ELENA OF AVALOR, to Lazlo from Cartoon Network’s CAMP LAZLO, to Mr. Crocker from Nickelodeon’s FAIRLY ODD PARENTS, to officer Garcia from the long-running Comedy Central hit show Reno911. It's so fun just realizing that over 100 characters we love have one Latinx star in common: Carlos! Carlos -- the award-winning voice-over actor, producer, and comedian -- opens up about how he does what he does and how others (like you and me) can follow in his footsteps. (Yes, it's possible! Who knew?)

    Inspirational Writer, Director, Actor, and “Influencer” Kevin Bosch Explains his Rise to Fame ... even though he’s very well known for not being known.

    Inspirational Writer, Director, Actor, and “Influencer” Kevin Bosch Explains his Rise to Fame ... even though he’s very well known for not being known.

    This special “Back to School” episode with one of South Florida’s young and famous stars, now making his mark in LA, the Kevin Bosch, is about high hopes and hard work. Most fans of Jenny Lorenzo’s hit YouTube show about everyone’s “Abuela” definitely know him as the sweet, yet mysterious, Primo Kevin. The CATALINA Stars’ family knows him as one of our favorite writers, directors, actors, comedians, and artists (who always makes us laugh). On social media he goes by “Who is Kevin?” He actually goes by “Quien C**ajo es Kevin?” Is it a sign, a clue, that he rather be an artist behind the scenes and not in the spotlight? Who is this mysterious funny guy? Cristina, this podcast’s young host, is so happy to talk to Primo Kevin and find out more about him. Who, what, where, when, why, and how is the world of Kevin Bosch? Not only does he open up in this one-on-one talk, but Kevin isn’t afraid to be honest about his “fame” and explain how he does what he does, and how others can too ( ... no matter how old you are).

    Award-winning Teenage Poet Laureate Isabella Ramirez’s Passion is Contagious and Speaks to the Poets in All of Us.

    Award-winning Teenage Poet Laureate Isabella Ramirez’s Passion is Contagious and Speaks to the Poets in All of Us.

    For the first time, Cristina is interviewing an award-winning, nationally-recognized teenage poet laureate, Isabella Ramírez — which is perfect, because this young CATALINA podcaster/journalist is a big poetry fan. Say, “Emily Dickinson,” and the iconic poet’s “I Am Nobody” may just be recited on the spot. Meeting and interviewing Isabella for this episode answers so many questions Cristina has for a poet laureate, like: 1. “How does someone just become a poet?” ... and 2. “Does an award-winning high school poet have to be angry or happy?” ... and 3. “What’s a poetry ‘chapbook’?” For your viewing pleasure (and more inspiration) the podcaster and the poet laureate, Cristina and Isabella, can be found as the two student presenters invited to speak for Palm Beach County School Districts in-line “9th annual Hispanic/Latino Virtual Summer 2021 Institute,” organized by Patricia Trejo. So this podcast just had to happen. The two student presenters had/have heard about each other, but one of the country’s largest school Districts helped make this podcast possible. Just in time for catalina magazine’s “passionate” issue. Oh yeah, did we mention there’s lots of passion and advice from Isabella for the poet in all of us?
