We also go one on one with two of the toughest men in MMA – the CEO and President of Combate AmericasCampbell McClaren and Alberto “El Patron” Rodriguez, formerly known to many WWE fans as Alberto Del Rio, in what I can only describe as an uncensored, candid and entertaining interview with two men in search of becoming the #1 MMA federation in the world.

This Week In Movies: ‘The Dinner,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’

05.2.2017 | By |

This week’s movie slate is not a Hollywood moviegoer’s dream. There is only one tentpole movie release, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and the rest are indie fare that lack buzz and excitement. The exploration of the human spirit is the common theme among our limited releases and though that’s not exciting, it is interesting. GOTG 2 is as much fun as you’ll have at the movies this summer, but Richard Gere’s family thriller The Dinner, does capture a feeling of Roman Polanski’s Carnage. Some star power also helps the indie films with stars such as Naomi Watts and Liev Schrieber leading their respective films. See what interests you and let us know. Enjoy the trailers and listen to our podcast for our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more! Read More

Only One Latino Makes The 2017 Tony Nominations

05.2.2017 | By |

The 2017 Tony nominations were announced this morning with only ONE Latino making the list -Puerto Rican Ruben Santiago-Hudson who directed the six-time nominated August Wilson play, Jitney. The celebration of the Tony’s diversity progression died in the musical category this year in comparison to last year’s Hamilton phenomenon. That’s not to say Broadway as a whole hasn’t made an effort to include more African-American, Asians and Latinos in their shows (Chicago, Miss Saigon, Anastasia, et.al). They have and sometimes at the cost of including them in nonsensical roles (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), but at least they’re there. In the play categories, we did witness inclusion in most of the nominations, in particular, Jitney, Oslo and Sweat. For me personally, Latinos are a forgotten ethnicity in the eyes of arts today. Lin-Manuel Miranda cannot be the sole torch bearer of the largest majority minority in our nation. It has to change, we have to change it. Read More

On this week’s episode, we talk with the creator of the most anticipated show in Spanish language TV right now, Univision’s EL CHAPO.

Also urban millennial network VICELAND has a new show called JUNGLETOWN that takes place in Panama. Why are they there and why should we care? I talk to Jimmy Stice, the man behind it all. That, plus highlights of The Premios Billboard, reviews of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Broadway’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘The Circle,’ ‘How To Be A Latin Lover,’ ‘Buster’s Mal Heart’

04.24.2017 | By |

How To Be A Latin Lover is how we begin the week’s film releases. For the love of a god, any god, I hope this comedy doesn’t regress Latino culture 30 years. To be frank, I can’t bring myself to see it. You guys let me know how it is. In other releases, Tom Hanks and Emma Watson engage us in a black mirror story about technology and social media and humanity in The Circle and Rami Malek leaves his Mr. Robot persona to give us Buster’s Mal Heart, a quirky thriller that is sure to make you see Malek with different eyes. Enjoy the trailers and listen to our podcast for our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more! Read More

The Highly Relevant Podcast: Why Justin Bieber’s ‘Despacito’ Remix is a Cultural Failure

04.21.2017 | By |


This might actually be the best show I’ve done. I break down the new Justin Bieber “Despacito” Remix with well known Radio DJ and performer Diamond Boy Luis. We didn’t like it and we explain why. Also, Ulises Bella from the popular LA band Ozomatli joins us to talk about their NYC concert in Brooklyn, the electricity of their live-performances, plus their collaboration with Juanes and Gaby Moreno on their new album “NONSTOP-LA→MEXICO→KINGSTON”. And then to cap it off, we welcome Latin music’s most respected voice, Billboard’s Leila Cobo to discuss her exclusive interview with J Balvin and Nicky Jam on this week’s Latin Billboard Magazine.
