So glad Puerto Rico is being showed in a pod!

As a proud Puerto Rican I am happy to see a podcast about the culture and history. I myself didn’t grow up on the island but I always loved visiting family there. I really hope to learn more as I continue into the season and learn more about Puerto Rico.Thank you so much for making this!!!
