March 18 Interview with Nydia Velázquez

This episode was everything I needed to hear to have a new respect and admiration for the Senator

Liked it until…

I had really liked this podcast and the content that it was covering. All until the episode about the word Latinx. This completely made me shut it off and say forget this. I can’t understand how they would invite someone to explain the word and yet interrupt them every single time. It was childish and unprofessional.
