EP. 015 - Don Leo coffee
It’s a cold day in LA! So wherever you are in the world listening to this, we invite you to sit down, relax, and enjoy a cup of coffee while listening to this episode. Cristian Quintanilla is the owner of his own coffee business known as Don Leo Coffee. Born in El Salvador and raised in Los Angeles, his main goal is to provide gourmet coffee from El Salvador in the US and make El Salvador’s coffee known again. As we sat down and drank some of his coffee Cristian shared a little about his background story and how he began his business. We also discussed a few other topics, such as traditions in El Salvador; like drinking a cup of coffee and sharing stories. Enjoy!
EP. 014 - Que se Rinda tu Madre
Welcome back to Radio No Jodas and to Season 2! On this episode my great friend Anais guest co-hosted and lead the conversation about the issues going on in Nicaragua. Anais has been actively speaking about Nicaragua since the minute the crisis broke out. Coming from two Nicaraguan parents, and visiting Nicaragua every summer; this is something that she holds tight in her heart. In this episode she was able to get a friend of hers (who’s name will remain anonymous for safety purposes) who has been living in exile for the last 3 months to speak about his experience and the severity of the situation. It was a very raw ,honest, and open conversation through WhatsApp so please excuse the call getting cut short. If you’d like to get involved or learn more about Nicaragua, you can look up the hashtag #sosnicaragua or follow Anais’s platform @quiensosvos
EP. 013 - La Procesión
On this weeks episode I finally got around to sharing a scary story as I promised. I know it’s not October anymore but let’s get real here; scary stories are cool to hear year round. So for this episode I invited the best story teller I know- my dad. I remember when I was young my dad told me this story that happened to him during his youth while he was in El Salvador. He was around 14 going on a trek with his boy-scout group. While embarking that trip they all witnessed an eerie group of people known as “La Procession”. To this day people still claim it goes on but, where these group of people come from remains unexplained..
EP. 012 - Meet Normandie Records
On this week’s episode I had the pleasure to sit down and talk to Erick- the owner of Normandie records.
Erick talked about his love for music and how it connected him to his parents, his roots from El Salvador and how that motivated him to own his record label. When he started his record label he ventured off and found new modern and contemporary music from the motherland and that inspired him to work with these bands and artists exclusively and have them signed on his label. Erick is helping bring the level of music from El Salvador that we’ve been longing and waiting for here in the US! We played two exclusive songs from two Salvadoran bands which you’ll get to listen to on this episode and we also gave out a little easter egg about a project that is brewing and is in the works momentarily- stay tuned!
In the meantime, you can find the Centro America Vol 1 mixtape cassette on his website normandierecords.com get your own copy while they’re hot and available, there’s a limited supply left! Also watch out for Centro America Vol 2 mixtape coming out soon, this time it’ll be on vinyl.
Songs played: Camelo- Ya No Juegues Con Mi Amor & Tonico 86- Todo Marcha Bien
EP. 011 - Welcome to El Salvador!
Welcome back to another episode, I’m back from my trip and finally able to share my experience with you all! It’s been 19 years since I’ve last gone to El Salvador and it’s taken me so long to visit for various reasons. This trip was extremely personal and fulfilling in so many aspects of my life but I wanted you all to hear about it because I know for many it’s difficult to go back and visit or for some of you it may not be possible to.
On this episode my friend Victor, who came on the show before and many of you may know him as Dichos de un bicho, is back as a recurring guest! We had a full on conversation and I shared my experience with him so you’ll get the full insight on why it’s taken me so long to visit again, and about my family roots! Q&A’s are at the end of the episode. Thank you to everyone who submitted their questions, I enjoyed answering them all on this episode! And thank you Victor for coming back on and allowing me to share my experience with you and helping me with all the questions! Bienvenidos a El Salvador!
Huge shoutout and a big thank you to Radio Pulgarcito for the Taca intro!
