Fun, Informative, & Cozy!

Great new Podcast focusing on real people, real life, and the interesting, often unexpected journeys that life can take us on! The comfortable atmosphere of the show makes listening a breeze and the topics covered feel very informative, especially for someone from outside of the Latinx community. However, I’m sure there’s plenty of new information for listeners from inside the community as well!
