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!
