Enlightening, candid conversations about the Texas Hispanic experience
Every Texan should listen to this podcast. Terrific debut episode! These are enlightening, candid conversations about the Texas Hispanic experience. Interesting and honest discussion with former state Representative Poncho Nevárez. Look forward to more episodes. BTW, podcast host Jason Villalba evidently can do it all; he’s an attorney, former state representative in Texas, and now the president of the Texas Hispanic Policy Foundation which is now behind this series.
Awesome very insightful story on a childhood friend and current friend. Proud to call him a friend. A true Overcomer. Great insight on his life in growing up in South Texas and political career.
