PODCAST: Carlos Santana, Dolores Huerta, ‘Narcos’ Season 3, #HispanicsBreakTheInternet, NY Times Simon Romero on Spanish

08.25.2017 | By |


On this week’s show, we talk to Latina icon Dolores Huerta and music legend Carlos Santana. They spoke to me about their new documentary DOLORES that focuses on the impact Huerta and Cesar Chavez had in the life of millions of Latino immigrants in the 60’s in this country.  Then we head to Cali, Colombia, that is via Narcos Season 3, and I talk to its Colombian director Andrés Baiz who tells me in a very candid and honest interview about how he wrestles with the dilemma of being a Colombian and filming a cartel show that reopens wounds for many of his people.  Also, what is the ultimate fate of the Spanish language in the United States? Will it become Spanglish or will it eventually disappear? Should Univision and Telemundo become English-language networks, should MTV welcome Spanish-language videos and should Miami Latinos stop speaking Spanish so much and embrace English more? New York Times national correspondent, Simon Romero, drops by the show to discuss his new article on the relationship Latinos have with Spanish in the US.  And did you guys hear about #HispanicsBreakTheInternet? It’s a hashtag that went viral this past weekend and ended up trending #1 in the country! We spoke to James Detar, the person who revived and set off the whole thing. Read More
