In this interview series, host Alicia Menendez talks to remarkable Latinas about making it, faking it, and everything in between.
In often-hilarious and always-revealing episodes, Alicia and her guests take on the challenges of existing, and then thriving, as women of color. We talk about the causes and ideas that are on their minds — everything from colorism and homophobia in our own community to reimagining the systems that keep us out in a way that lets us — and everyone else — in.
Made by two Latinas with love.
