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

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.

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.
