#1739 - Southern Roadtrip (Part 2)

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 13:50:44 -0400

The Latino USA road trip continues. Producers Zakiya Gibbons and Jeanne Montalvo, who both grew up in the South, take host Maria Hinojosa on a road trip through the heart of the South to learn first-hand what it's like to be Latino and Southern today. We go to rural Alabama and learn what happened after the controversial law HB 56 was passed. We drive through Albertville, Alabama, rumored to have become a "ghost town" after the law went into effect and find out if this is true. We also get a slice of what life is like in a post-Trump South for Latinos.

#1738 - Southern Roadtrip (Part 1)

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 14:11:31 -0400

Latino USA hits the road! Producers Zakiya Gibbons and Jeanne Montalvo, who both grew up in the South, take host Maria Hinojosa on a road trip through the heart of the South to learn first-hand what it's like to be Latino and Southern today, in a special 2-part series. In Part 1, we find out how Latinos helped Atlanta become a world-class city, visit a magical, taco-filled land called Plaza Fiesta, and hear one Latino family's story of what it was like to navigate the White-Black binary in a small Alabama town.

BONUS: Bodega

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 15:06:17 -0400

Latino USA producers spend a day in a bodega in Harlem, NYC — home to one of the biggest Dominican populations in the U.S. They uncover stories about nutrition, migration, community, and the slow threat of gentrification.

#1737 - The Strange Death of José de Jesús (Part 2)

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 12:29:21 -0400

In part two of our two-part special, we continue our investigation into the death of a man in a U.S. immigration detention center. José de Jesús turned himself into Border Patrol saying somebody was after him. Three days later, he died by suicide after stuffing a sock down his throat. In part two of this story, surveillance video reveals clues about what happened inside his cell, and an internal investigation from Immigration and Customs Enforcement answers many of our questions about what happened to José in the days leading up to his death.

SPECIAL EPISODE: Dismantling DACA

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 05:00:00 -0400

After the Trump Administration announced its decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, we decided to put together a special podcast-only episode to help you make sense of the news. We break down some of the factually questionable statements in Attorney General Sessions' announcement, hear from an expert on how DACA affects the economy and find out about one DACA recipient's daring sacrifice during Hurricane Harvey. Plus, we open the phone lines and hear from you, our listeners, about what your DACA means to you.

#1736 - The Strange Death of José de Jesús (Part 1)

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 12:00:00 -0400

A man dies in a U.S. immigration detention center, under unusual circumstances. He is found unresponsive in his cell, with a sock stuffed down his throat. His death is ruled a suicide, but little information is put out about what happened, and the family wants answers. In this first part of a special two-part series, Latino USA investigates why José de Jesús died in the custody of the U.S. government, and what his death tells us about conditions—especially mental health services—inside the immigration detention system.

#1735 - Whose Country 'Tis of Thee?

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 13:28:00 -0400

Latino USA looks at stories of belonging and home, and what happens when those things get called into question. From rising reports of hate crimes, to a Latina student injured at the recent protests in Charlottesville, to the use of high tech surveillance methods in immigration enforcement, what happens when home starts feeling hostile?

#1734 - Valley of Contrasts

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 13:19:48 -0400

The Coachella Valley in California is best known for its giant music festival. But there's another Coachella, and it has nothing to do with partying. The valley is divided into two parts. On the west side, there are beautiful homes with large yards. On the east side, you find the mobile homes of the mostly Mexican American residents who work in landscaping or agriculture. The differences between the two sides are stark, but there is one difference that truly sets them apart and has serious health consequences: access to clean water.

#1733 - Inside MS-13

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 12:45:34 -0400

President Trump has been talking a lot lately about MS-13, a street gang that started in California and spread to Central America. But what is the real story behind the gang? Latino USA takes a deep dive into MS-13, from the gang's origins in Los Angeles, to the economic motor that powers them in Central America, to a string of brutal murders in Long Island, New York. Plus, the other reason why the administration is talking about MS-13 these days: politics.

#1732 - Detained

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 13:54:00 -0400

The new administration has said that if you're in this country illegally, "you should be looking over your shoulder." On this episode, Latino USA looks at what is changing with immigration under President Trump and how those changes affect people in the real world. We hear about a man who was asked to buy his own plane ticket to get deported, look at tensions between local police and ICE in Texas, and hear from the director of a new office created by the president to support the victims of crimes committed by "illegal aliens."

#1731 - Secret Special Sauce

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 12:00:00 -0400

We all have that secret, special sauce. You know, that unique thing that we all bring to the table. This week we're showcasing a sampler of all types of secret sauces: from a secret hot sauce recipe that launched one man from obscurity to the high-roller life, to musician Gabriel Garzón Montano's special touch—so special that Drake sampled one of his songs. We also hear from a mother who is trying to teach her daughter how to make tortillas—just as her mom used to teach her—but stumbles along the way.

#1730 - The Stolen Child

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 11:17:00 -0400

Looking at the news these days, you might notice some common trends all over the world: a rise in populism and authoritarianism. In Argentina, we look at the history of trauma left behind by a military dictatorship in the 1970's, and trace one family's search for a missing son. And in Venezuela, violence and economic struggles worsen as protests against the government intensify. Plus, writer Amanda Taub talks about how authoritarianism can show up in any country—in the U.S., it might even be democratically elected.

#1729 - Rest in Segregation

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 13:22:33 -0400

We think of segregation as a thing of the past, but there are still many instances of unequal treatment—some more subtle than others. This week on Latino USA: a woman fights to bury her Latino husband after he was denied burial in a "whites only" cemetery in Texas. U.S. citizens who are the children of undocumented immigrants are being denied college scholarships in South Carolina. And Salma Hayek talks about her new film, Beatriz at Dinner, that takes on the question: what does it mean to be Latino in a white space? Language advisory: there is a racial slur that is not bleeped in the episode.

#1728 - The Beautiful Game

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 13:29:11 -0400

Do you call it fútbol or soccer? Latino USA takes a look at the sport loved throughout Latin America and around the world, and what the teams we root for say about ourselves. When you come from both the U.S. and Mexico, what national team do you root for? Or what about if your national team is constantly losing—do you lose faith? And we take a look at women's soccer in the U.S., a world few Latinas reach.

#1727 - Too Black, Too Latino

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 12:26:00 -0400

For this episode of Latino USA we take a look at Afro-Latinidad in 2017. What does it mean to be Afro-Latino and who gets to claim the title? We take a look at anti-blackness within the Latino community, and we speak with a panel of experts. Plus, we go back in history to learn about the "father of Black History," an Afro-Puerto Rican man named Arturo Schomburg. We also hear from Congressman Adriano Espaillat on his identity as well as from singer-songwriter Carolina Camacho about her latest album and what being Afro-Latino means to her.

#1726 - Color Me Proud

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 13:40:36 -0400

In honor of Pride Month, Latino USA brings you stories of love, vulnerability, and resilience in LGBTQ communities of color. We'll hear the love story of gay migrants from El Salvador navigating the asylum system in Mexico and the story of a nine-year-old boy who got kicked out of the Boy Scouts after they found out that little Joe had been born as "Jody." Plus, an update on the San Antonio Four—a group of lesbian women falsely convicted of a gruesome crime. And, a look back at the Pulse nightclub shooting and how it affected one gay Puerto Rican man as he struggled to come out.

#1725 - Making a Man

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 13:38:45 -0400

In honor of Father's Day, Latino USA breaks down the different relationships between fathers and sons. From an adult son who reflects back on how his dad treated him like the little prince of the household to a teen dad whose masculinity was defined during his challenging journey to fatherhood. Plus, soul artist Nick Hakim on learning to fight his bully.

#1724 - Recalculating Route

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 14:26:23 -0400

Sometimes in life, unexpected events cause us to change course. This week on Latino USA we take a trip to Waukegan, Illinois where a local election puts the future of a coal plant in limbo. We meet Lizzie Velásquez, who became an anti-bullying activist and motivational speaker after finding a video online that called her the "World's Ugliest Woman." And we speak to The Kid Mero about how he went from semi-employed and making jokes on Twitter to the star of Viceland's late-night comedy & news commentary show.

#1723 - No Money More Problem$

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 13:20:30 -0400

In 2014, the wealth of white households was ten times that of Latino households. Why does the racial wealth gap continue to hold Latinos back economically? From going to college to making a will, we look at how lack of knowledge and systemic inequalities are obstacles for building wealth. MacArthur-winner José Quiñonez talks about how to build credit in immigrant communities, and we dive into contracts for deed—often misleading property deals that trick black and Latino homebuyers into thinking they've bought a house, when instead they've signed up for years of expensive repairs.

#1722 - Ripple Effect

Fri, 26 May 2017 12:00:00 -0400

What happens when immigration laws and policies—intended for immigrants—affect U.S. citizens? For this episode of Latino USA we meet the De La Rosa family, four U.S.-born siblings who are defying the odds and making it work despite being separated from their mother, from 15-year-old Naomi taking on the mom role at home, to Jim, the oldest, joining the military in hopes of getting his mom legal status in the U.S. We also talk to Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles about how immigration policies can put local governments between a rock and a hard place.

#1721 - But I Get Up Again

Fri, 19 May 2017 13:37:55 -0400

This week on Latino USA — it's all about fighters. Standing up for what you believe in, and finding the strength to get back up when you fall. We catch up on news from Puerto Rico, where there is a crippling debt crisis, a university strike, and an upcoming referendum that could determine the island's future. Plus, conversations with Mexican soap star Kate Del Castillo, and WWE star "AJ" Mendez Brooks.

#1720 - Latino U

Fri, 12 May 2017 12:30:50 -0400

For many, college is the first place where serious thought is given to one's identity. All of a sudden you're forced to think about what it is you want from life and where you think you belong. Latino USA is diving into the world of college, starting with an in-depth look into Latino Greek life. We are going to rush at the University of Texas at Austin and learn the surprising history of Latino fraternities. Plus, a conversation about whether safe spaces protect or coddle students.

#1719 - The Flip Side

Fri, 05 May 2017 12:00:00 -0400

Comedian Eugenio Derbez is so famous in Mexico he can barely walk down the street without being swarmed by paparazzi. So what did it feel like to try to make it in Hollywood as an unknown? On this episode, we hear from people who find themselves in situations they never thought they would be in. An insurance rep goes from denying people health coverage to fighting for his mom to get it. And, Jews and Nazi-sympathizers from Latin America end up in the same U.S. internment camps together during World War II.

#1718 - 100

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 12:47:18 -0400

As President Trump reaches his 100th day in office, Latino USA brings stories about what's changed since January 20. A young woman decides to start a political march, and ten thousand people sign up overnight. A Nebraska corn farmer worries about what changes to NAFTA could mean for his job, and lawyers in New York City struggle to deal with new demands being placed on them. At the same time, many Trump voters, including an outspoken Border Patrol union leader, remain supportive. Latino perspectives from both sides of the aisle, and what it all could mean for the next few years.

#1717 - The Hand You're Dealt

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 11:59:50 -0400

In life, as in cards, it's all about the luck of the draw. On this week's show, Latino USA tells stories about making the most out of difficult or complicated circumstances. Latinos in Denison, Iowa grapple with living in the district of a controversial, anti-immigrant congressman. A man flees Syria to unite with his love in Colombia. Pop-star Becky G speaks about escaping a rough economic childhood in Los Angeles.

#1716 - ¡Ay Vey! - Being Jewish and Latino

Fri, 14 Apr 2017 12:00:00 -0400

Jews and Latinos are often discussed as different categories, but of course there are many Jewish communities across Latin America and some have made their way to the United States. On this episode of Latino USA, we explore the history of Jewish migration throughout the Americas, hear personal stories of family and identity from Jewish Latinos themselves, and learn about the struggle to preserve a fading Spanish-Jewish language known as Ladino.

#1715 - Rodeo

Fri, 07 Apr 2017 12:16:00 -0400

Rodeo—the Spanish word for "rounding up"—is a multi-million dollar sport in the U.S. but it's rooted in the riding, roping, and cattle ranching skills brought by Mexican cowboys to the Southwest hundreds of years ago. Today, most of the top professional rodeo athletes are white, but if you take a closer look, there are a large number of Mexican-American cowboys who live and breathe the sport. Latino USA visits the Tucson Rodeo, also known as La Fiesta de Los Vaqueros, and follows one family's dreams to turn their 8-year-old kid into a rodeo champion.

#1712 - Blood and Betrayal in the Southwest

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 15:05:58 -0400

The Southwest was once a part of Mexico, but that doesn't mean that Mexicans have always felt welcome there. The region has a long and little-told history of segregation, discrimination, and state-sanctioned violence towards Mexicans and Mexican-Americans. Latino USA looks into that history, from the tale of outlaw Juan Cortina and the dark side of the Texas Rangers to stories of school segregation and lynchings.
