08.1.2017 | By |

This morning on the TODAY show, I preview some movie and tv shows that some of you might be interested in watching this August. Think of it as an August Preview. My wife liked many of what’s on this list, specially Fun Mom Dinner. I once again enjoy the new format they’re using when doing these monthly or weekend segments – sofa seats and a 200 inch TV screen! Feels like you’re hanging with friends in living room watching movies. Below is a transcript of what I said on the show…

PODCAST: We Review Romeo Santos New Album ‘GOLDEN’

07.29.2017 | By |

*This is a US Latino podcast for anyone who enjoys American and Latino pop culture.

On episode 42 of the Highly Relevant Podcast with Jack Rico, we talk J Balvin’s ‘Mi Gente’. Many people are already calling it the next ‘Despacito’ phenomenon for its potential to become #1 on the HOT 100. So… can it make it to #1?

We also review Romeo Santos‘ new album ‘Golden’ with Isabela Raygoza, Rolling Stone Magazine’s Latina music critic, who also discusses with us her Q&A with Romeo and whether he can make Bachata mainstream in America.

And, how is the Prince Royce tour going? I speak with singer and good friend, Cáthia, who is currently touring with him as his back-up singer, on an impromptu phone call where she tells me the inside details of her sexy solos she performs with Royce every night, how she got the gig and how she felt to sing in her front of her hometown NY at MSG.

07.24.2017 | By |

If you are a US Latino/a who doesn’t know who Dolores Huerta is, it’s time you wake the f*ck up. Dolores is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87.
