Lunita Erikita ,

Locatora listener from Day 1

In love with this radiophonic novela from its inception. The energy, aesthetics, & glamour is everything I never knew I needed. Obvi these are very light akinned/yt Latinas so I don’t necessarily agree with their ‘brown girl hour’ slogan & also want to state: listen to brown & black podcasts as well! They’ve collaborated with some dope black & brown creators and podcasters - I.e my fav capítulo is with Bag LadieZ !!

Rocio Gdvm ,

Must listen! ***Relatable Content***

Relatable and informative content. I listen to every episode. Hire these women I want to see their voices and projects on a bigger platform!!

Natpandaboo ,

The most empowering podcast

I started listing after the pero like video. I decided to start on episode 1. Honestly, the best podcast I listen to, I learn so much from them and they teach me how to be a stronger Latina and to not be ashamed of who I am.
