    For our third minisode of the season, Lu taps back in to tell the tale of a war that's not really a war. It's a tale of contradictions, hypocrisy, and resistance.

    Puerto Rican Enough?

    Puerto Rican Enough?

    Welcome back podcast fam! The PoYiF team is excited to get back into groove after their mid-season break and finish off their journey of exploring the reciprocal impact and influence art and identity have had on the island of Puerto Rico and its people. This episode will tackle the tension many members of the Puerto Rican diaspora experience with being a person of two identities or "bi-cultural" as guest host Navani Otero puts in. So join Wilson and Navani as they try to grapple with what it means to be "Puerto Rican Enough".

MyDogRex ,

Great content analysis and awesome guests

I really appreciate the extra levels of analysis this podcast provides. They have a good a way of unpacking some complex issues that comic book stories present, and they do it in a welcoming and super chill way. Plus, they have great interview guests. I really loved the interviews with Julie Kerwin of I Am Elemental.
