We have all read the Sean Penn Rolling Stone article he wrote back in 2016 where he and Mexican actress Kate del Castillo met with El Chapo. Well, that story is now being told in retrospect by Kate and Netflix in a three-episode biographical series titled “The Day I Met El Chapo: The Kate del Castillo Story“.

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

This week, Netflix premiered two trailers of their new shows – Narcos and Club De Cuervos – targeted at reaching the ever so influential and powerful Hispanic audience. The question is will they work. Interestingly, one of them, Club de Cuervos, is their first original series spoken in Spanish, while the other, Narcos, is spoken in English. Both have Latin themes that attract an almost fanatical attention from Hispanics – soccer and drug cartels. Read More

(Analysis) What Is Spanish-Language TV’s Obsession With Narconovelas?

06.11.2014 | By |

This past Sunday, “Metastasis,” the Spanish version of the Emmy Award-winning series “Breaking Bad,” premiered simultaneously on UniMas, Univision and Galavision. The remake tells the same story as the AMC original, but with cultural adaptations that allow it to makes sense with Bogota, Colombia as its backdrop. Read More
