EPISODE 52 – RE:WORK RADIO, UCLA LABOR CENTER

For our 52nd episode, we chat with Saba Waheed (@sabawaa) and Veena Hamparur (@ammalmani) of the UCLA Labor Center (@uclalabor) in MacArthur Park about Re:Work Radio (@rework_radio), a one-of-a-kind podcast and storytelling program by Saba and Veena centered on workers and worker’s rights in Los Angeles. Our talk is especially relevant for students and other independent storytellers out there looking for L.A. stories from people of color and their communities. Also, find out more about Re:Work Radio programing and its latest goings-on via Instagram and Twitter at @rework_radio.

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_.
