This month’s episode is dedicated to showcase Latinos during the Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated in the United States during the month of September.
We start by hearing to the love story of Gian and Nora, the hosts of Bumping Uglies, a podcast that serves as a platform for Latinos artists and athletes in The United States. Nora Cazares is an actor, writer and voice over actor from Craig, Colorado who was raised by Mexican parents. Gian Carlo is a comedian and actor from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, living in Denver.
We also hear from Melissa Rocha, a Brooklyn based comic who is originally from Texas. She’s a proud Mexican-American. She performs all over NYC and was most recently at Let’s Fest in Indiana. Check out her instagram: @melsideponytail
We also hear the love story of our host Vanessa's Tia Francis and her husband, Uncle Bryant. This story has appeared on the show before, but since their story is perfect for this theme, we wanted to share it again!
This month we have a brand new theme song composed with love by Pavel Rivera, a beloved Dominican musician living in New York.
