In our 43rd episode, we catch up with none other than Bethanee Epifani. We talk inauguration, Amanda Gorman’s “The Hill We Climb,” vaccination in Los Angeles, and even $100,000 dollars. That’s right.

EPISODE 40 – SANITATION IN L.A. WITH SAL ROSES

In our 40th episode–the final for 2020–Sal Roses returns to our podcast, this time to chat about his experience as a supervisor for L.A. City Sanitation services, the city body which has overseen clean-ups of unhoused encampments on L.A.’s sidewalks and beneath L.A.’s freeway underpasses. Sal and I have a heart-felt talk about these clean-ups in the time of “shelter-in-place” orders over the last year, as well as about the critical advocacy work for L.A.’s unhoused by groups such as StreetWatch-LA and Ktown For All. We also talk at length about coming up in L.A. as Latinx people under various political dimensions and cultural moments in the city over the last decade, plus more. A super-fun end-of-the-year episode for Los Angeles. Find Sal’s latest album at: @salrosestheoriginal.

EPISODE 25 – LATINE OR LATINX

In our twenty-fifth episode, we chat with Madison Felman-Panagotacos, a researcher and doctoral candidate in the Spanish & Portuguese department at UCLA. Madison tells us about her teaching Latine instead of Latinx during her seminars for language students at UCLA, and how terms like “elles” can and do make a positive difference for non-binary people in the Latinx community. Check out the article we refer to from the New Yorker at this link: “Who Are You Calling Latinx?” And find Madison on Twitter at @mad_tacos_.
