Such a great resource, for discovering brown writers!

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a few years now, since Ep. 1. Can’t believe Ruben’s interviewed over 100 Latinx’s. Congrats! I’ve learned so much listening to these episodes. #latinxpodcasts

Excellent

Thoughtful, educated, caring and fun. This podcast is one to subscribe to as it narrates many Latinx stories and the shades of very different stories. Arriba LA Lista!

AprilsHello ,
