    Before his arrest, Genaro García Luna worked closely with U.S. diplomats and intelligence agencies, and was considered the architect of the Mexican "war on drugs," funded with more than $3 billion of U.S. taxpayer money. Look for it on December 9th wherever you get your podcasts and at futuroinvestigates.org.

Long Live Punk!

Latino Rebels is always cutting edge and feeds my soul, but this episode was a reminder to this 55 y.o. former San Francisco Latina of the community of punk and the love of our music. This was nostalgic for me and oh how I long for a $5 dollar show…gracias!

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.
