After more than a decade of using her broadcasting skills and independent filmmaking experience to share Enchanting Stories on her Video Podcast, "New Mexicast," former TV news anchor and reporter, Rosa Linda Román, was burned out. In her post-mainstream media life she had created an independent body of work she was proud of, but as a one-woman-band AND a full-time mother of 3, it was tough to find a healthy balance that worked for her family. In 2015, she started recording voice memos as she wrestled with plans for the future. That was also the year her family bought the sailing catamaran, s/v Dawn Treader. In the coming months, as her family used the KonMari method to downsize their home and move from New Mexico onto the boat, Rosa Linda continued making these recordings along the way. Listen in as she shares her journey; both personal and professional, from New Mexico to Florida and the Bahamas, and from New Mexicast to New Mexi-Castaways.

Great Little Stories

There are so many things to love about New Mexicast. For one, you get these great little stories that you would never see in the mainstream media. And even though it's a small-time operation, Rosa Linda has many years of experience as a reporter and takes the time to make sure her podcasts are very professional. I highly recommend subscribing to New Mexicast, whether you live in NM or not.

Great Video Podcast

I really enjoy this podcast. Rosa Linda has a true talent for relating life stories. I don't usually watch video podcast, but this one should not be missed. A real professionally done video podcast.

Makes me miss New Mexico.

This podcast is great!! They are short and sweet and really give you a taste of NM. Rosa Linda is adorable and very talented. If you have never been to NM, this will wet your appetite for a trip, and if you are from NM, it will make you feel better when you are homesick.
