get a little cultured

i come from a mexican-hungarian background (mom hungarian dad mexican) but i look very white. before my parents divorce, my aunts, my grandma mita and other relatives on my dads side watched my little brother and i so i picked up a little spanish. growing up in a very white school i was made fun of because i would mix up my sentences. for example, instead of saying ‘can i have some ice water?’ i would say ‘can i have some water of ice?’ teachers didn’t have the patients for me so i was put into ‘special reading classes’ which only increased the bullying.

listening to this podcast let’s me have this sense of belonging. even though i can’t speak spanish well or ive never had a quinceanera or never been punished by a chancla (for a hungarians it was a wooden spoon) i love listening to the interviews and the deep dive research this podcast gives. i have a better understanding of my families rich history and i feel more cultured and also empowered. my favorite episodes are the ones that involve musicians and how they use their talents to inspire a revolution. maria is a fabulous host and i can get enough of this pobcast. educate yourself! thank you mucho!

Engaging, Interesante & Inteligente

This podcast has been essential, a way to learn and understand the incredible multiplicity of the Latinx, Hispanic, Chicano, Nuyorrican and ever so evolving community. The stories are always changing and I am learning more and more. I really enjoyed themes I have not always wanted to read or be exposed to. The interview with Immortal Technique was fascinating, and I am not a rap fan, but this opened a door to that experience. These stories are fundamental and they are needed to give strength to la resistencia.
