I've shared this podcast chat I had with Hector Alamo, founder and editor of Enclave Magazine in several places, but I thought I might share it here as well for the occasional individual who might not see this anywhere else but here. Besides, I think it was a great talk we had and would love for everyone who follows any of my work to listen in.
We talk about the politics of our times, the history of Mexico, the political, social, and cultural situation of life on the border. I also talk at length about growing up in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas and the deep connection to life in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico. I practically grew up there, too, staying every weekend there visiting family. We also talk about publishing, writing, creating, and what it takes to become a full-fledged artist.
This is an expletive-filled, informal chat, so if your ears are sensitive to harsh words, just stuff them with some cotton to muffle the bad words. :)
It is time for our history to be rewritten. It is time for our truth to be retold. Join me every week to uncover that which has been hidden from our eyes, and stolen from our tongues.
