    Bonus Episode: Morado Lens x Real Me In Simulcast

    We were honored to be guests on a recent episode of sister podcast Morado Lens. Morado Lens is a feminist podcast hosted by journalist Cindy Rodriguez and creative director Nathalie Farfan who discuss embracing your inner bruja, sex, and culture in a humorous and relatable way.

    We discussed how to create safe spaces, how to respond to people who display problematic micro-aggressions, ethical law as it relates to the immigration debate, and personal anecdotes related to diversity.

    RealMeIn Ep06 "If We Don't Have Visibility, We Don't Exist"

    RealMeIn Ep06 "If We Don't Have Visibility, We Don't Exist"

    In this episode (also recorded a few months back, we're caught up!) we discuss the Katherine's trip to Morocco and how stifling and ridiculous gender roles and norms are.
    Our guest this episode is NYC-based LGBTQ activist dancer, singer, choreographer, drag queen, gender non-conformist, and co-host of PBS new documentary series "1st Person" Donald Shorter aka Francesca.

    Donald sits down with us to discuss the importance of visibility for GNC(gender non-conforming) and queer identifying humans, drag, how his experiences with the youth of Paris' and their interaction with "Paris is Burning" inspired his one woman show "Genderosity" (starring Francesca), and how imperative it is to challenge gender norms so we can break down the patriarchy.

    Episode 5 "Modern Mysticism"

    In this episode (recorded a few months back, we're almost caught up!) we discuss the impact of Wonder Woman and puzzling genetic ancestry results vs. self perception.

    Our guest, self proclaimed "Chiquita Bruijta" Chelsea Smith (founder of Brooklyn Brujeria and Event Producer for Ministerio de la Parranda)discusses the "trend" of modern mysticism, the importance of giving credit to traditional healers rooted in indigenous cultures, Puerto Rico's limbo status, and how she has turned her authentic spiritual practice into a business that helps others.

    Episode 4 "Everyday Acts of Resistance"

    Episode 4 "Everyday Acts of Resistance"

    In this episode (which we recorded a few months back, sorry guys!) we discuss the internet aftermath of Fyre Festival (RIP), and the joy that we've discovered, dancing with Bananaskirt Productions, with a short discourse of how wearying the entitlement of misogyny is.

    Our guest, interventionist & MSW, Raven Burgos (founder of http://takefido.org/ and Hellohappiness.us) speaks with us about addiction, trauma, and mental health disorders, what we can do to support those we love, who may be working through any of the above, and lets us know why everyday acts of resistance are so important.
