While Running I like to listen to podcasts and Latina to Latina is one of them! First of all I love Alicia’s voice! As an interviewer she asks such insightful and thought provoking questions! As a Afro-Latina always searching discovering my voice and who I am.. this podcast sheds light on the vast rainbow of beautiful women that make up LATINA!
This depression music has to go
You guys started adding background music to when the guests are telling their heartwarming story and it is soooooooo bad just really really really bad it takes away from their stories and it is distracting and unnecessary. Smh
Every episode inspires and uplifts. Alicia is an amazing interviewer.
