EPISODE 78 – MALA MUÑOZ, LOCATORA RADIO

In our 78th episode, we hop on a call with Mala Muñoz, one-half of the Locatora Radio Podcast! We discuss the origins of their special duo, as well as the challenges involved with being self-starters in an industry which still makes little room for Latinx women and culture. Mala also talks with us about her special relationship with her Grandma and their roots in none other than L.A.’s San Gabriel Valley; yours truly also fans out given that Locatora Radio Productions was a major inspiration for J.T. the L.A. Storyteller Podcast during a special seminar Mala and Diosa held at Cahuenga Public Library in 2018. Learn more about Muñoz at locatoraradio.com, and follow her latest at the new Marijanuera podcast.

EPISODE 75 – TAMARINDO PODCAST WITH BRENDA GONZALEZ

For our 75th episode, we sit down for a chat with Brenda Gonzalez, co-host of the Tamarindo Podcast with Sonoro Radio. We discuss the origins of Tamarindo as a unique space for Latinx culture, as well as its extension through Agua Fresca, a new platform publishing Latinx writers from across the U.S. and beyond. Brenda also shouts out her and co-host Ana Sheila Victorino’s upcoming event, “Intro to Podcasting,” for any and all prospective podcasters out there, as well as Futuro Media, Queer Enamoradas, Locatora Radio, and more. A pivotal session for all those shaking their heads at the start of “Hispanic Heritage Month” who nevertheless support getting the people a wee bit of more limelight.
