Love Rosa and Cat

One of my favorite podcasts! Love Rosa and Cat’s perspectives and their passion for film. Two Latinas talking movies is a breath of fresh air

Compelling work from a great group!

Latinx Lens makes me feel closer to my own Hispanic heritage! So warm, so needed. But also, they always offer refreshing takes on movies

Important Voices

Two things we could use a lot more of in the film community are the opinions of women and of underrepresented groups. Latinx Lens fills both of these voids with two hosts bringing their passion for movies and unique perspectives for all of us to enjoy. While I think it’s natural to want to hear their thoughts on films that depict their heritage, I hope listeners will understand the value of these ladies’ breakdown of film across all genres and of all backgrounds.
