    When Latinos fought the Book Ban

    When Latinos fought the Book Ban

    In 2010, Arizona Republicans passed a law to ban a wildly successful Mexican-American Studies program at Tucson High School. Administrators came into schools and pulled beloved books written by Latino authors off of the classroom shelves, but what they didn鈥檛 expect was just how far the Latino community would go to defend the right to learn about their history.聽 From students chaining themselves to desks, to secret underground libraries, and even banned book smugglers.聽 Hear what yesterday's fight can teach us about today's issues.
    This Episode was produced & written by Charlie Garcia. It was edited by Jackie Noack. Audio engineering and mixing by Charlie Garcia & Julian Blackmore. The hosts of The Pulso Podcast are Maribel Quezada-Smith and Liz Alarc贸n.

    Not Your Mama's Rhymes: Reimagining Poetry Through Latino Voices

    Not Your Mama's Rhymes: Reimagining Poetry Through Latino Voices

    Is it possible that many of us are stuck with the erroneous idea that poetry is boring or hard to understand? As we learn in this episode, poetry doesn't have to be dull or confusing. It can be funny and it can transcend stereotypes. Join me as we enjoy a poetry 101 refresher and an enlightening reading from Gabriel Dozal, a Latino poet you definitely didn't learn about in history class.
    This episode was produced and written by Maribel Quezada-Smith. Editing by Jackie Noack. Audio engineering and scoring by Julian Blackmore. The hosts of The Pulso Podcast are Liz Alarc贸n and Maribel Quezada-Smith.

    Since the last presidential election, there鈥檚 been countless commentary about what鈥檚 going on with some of our beloved Latino men and their swing to the right. In light of the Republican candidates filling the airwaves after the first debate, we invited two Latinos to the podcast for their take on why this trend is happening and what we can do to counter it.聽
