Latinx On The Rise is a podcast focusing on conversations with high achieving Latinx movers and shakers. Under the current political climate, the Latinx community continue to be relegated by being told what and who they are with little space to share perspective of our own stories. From queer identity to Afro-Latinidad we are constantly reminded there is little room for our stories to reach the masses. Latinx On The Rise has changed that landscape with representation of all kinds of Latinx- Americans across the country who are excited to share their achievements and hope to inspire listeners.

    First it was Roe V Wade, will it be Plyler V Doe Next | Mother Jones Reporter Isabela Dias

    Today I speak to Mother Jones reporter Isabela Dias, about the Plyler v Doe Supreme Court Case that ruled all undocumented children should receive a public education. Governor Greg Abbott of Texas is challenging the ruling stating that the cost of educating undocumented students has become a burden. However, Texas has a terrible raking when it comes to public education. So how much are they really spending to begin with?

    The Mother Jones article goes more in depth about the history of Plyler v Doe.

    The Pressure to be Successful | Gun Reform - is it possible?

    The Pressure to be Successful | Gun Reform - is it possible?

    I took a step back from the podcast because I needed to reconsider whether I wanted to continue with it. Latinx excellence is something I really want to share but what if I myself don't feel excellent?

    School shootings are a part of the American culture, but does it have to be? When are we going to stop sending thoughts and prayers and start pushing gun laws!

    Putin is so not VIP | Update on Ukraine

    Putin is so not VIP | Update on Ukraine

    I was scrolling on instagram earlier and saw many people talking about how exhausted they were by hearing about Ukraine. At some point, all of the things I read stopped being read in my internal voice. Instead I was reading them in Anna Sorokin's mashed Russian, Germany English. And all I could think was, Putin is so not VIP.

    Even if the influencers and want to be influencers of the world want to look the other way, you should not. Being informed and educated about global happenings never goes out of style.

    Tijuana for the weekend | Ukraine | 90 day Fiance Before the 90 Days

    Another week for the books, it's been a busy one personally and globally. Russia has officially invaded Ukraine and I am up to speed on 90 Day Fiance, Before the 90 Days. The entire 90 day franchise is probably the best thing to happen to TV in a long time.

    Latino Rebeles Founder Julio R. Varela | Mitú's alleged plagiarism

    The founder of Latino Rebels, Julio Varela and I speak about the founding of Latino Rebels and his experience with copy-cat work by Mitú. While Mitú has removed all of their authors work prior to 2020, it does not mean that harm hasn't been done to mulitple Latino outlets.

J.L. Torres ,

Fluid, engaging and fun!

I totally enjoyed conversing with Annabel on her podcast. She comes to the conversation knowledgeable of the subject and totally prepared. I've been on several podcasts promoting my book, Migrations, and this is one of my favorites. The discussion was fluid, engaging and fun, even as we talked about serious issues affecting our communities. She's doing a great job showcasing so many Latinx folks doing great work. Support her podcast!
