    Rafael Ocasio: Mapping Puerto Rico through folklore

    Rafael Ocasio: Mapping Puerto Rico through folklore

    Un episodio especial! I chat with Puerto Rican literary historian Rafael Ocasio about his latest collection which, like the early 20th century scientific survey conducted by Franz Boas, maps the former Spanish colony through folklore. But this collection is more than just folklore. Reimagined fairytales as well as history also populate this collection as well an emphasis on the hills as a space of resistance and reclamation.

    Robert Edison Sandiford: You have the power...use it

    Folklore, myth, superheroes. In this episode, Barbadian writer Robert Edison Sandiford explores our own Caribbean source of power in his novel 'And Sometimes They Fly'. We talk about the role of the hero in the region as well as the Caribbean as a real place with real people. This may be fantasy but it's also an assemblage of so much more.
