    Welcome to The Pulso Podcast

    Welcome to The Pulso Podcast. We bring you untold stories and unheard voices...The Latino voices you aren’t hearing in the news and the stories you didn’t learn in history class.
    Pulso is a non-profit media startup that reaches more than a million Latinos across the country with our news, history and culture stories that keep the pulse on nuestra gente.
    Who’s nuestra gente? You are, Latinos in the US who want to learn more about our community and play a part in shaping it for the better. Latinos have been a part of this country since before its founding. As some of the earliest inhabitants of this land, Latinos from Western states could rightfully claim they never crossed the border, the border crossed them. We’ve been a part of this great American experiment since it’s very beginning. From the halls of congress to the stages of broadway, even the food we consider to be American. We helped build this country and we’re not going anywhere.

Daily Dose of Cultura

I love the Pulso Podcast. It covers interesting topics about our history and culture, and it also delivers important information about current events directly impacting Latinos. It makes me proud to be a Mexicana. I am excited for the second season and what content is on the horizon!

The Pulso Podcast uncovers the stories of Latinos that we are not seeing in the news but that affect the lives not only of immigrants and first and second generation Latinos, but of all of us. The podcasts blend together hard-hitting news and information with cultural stories of the pockets of Latinos throughout the country.
