#1709 - What You Don't Expect When You're Expecting

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:44:16 -0500

When you see pregnancy in movies and mainstream media, it's usually packaged as a universally pleasant experience with a few bumps in the road. But there's more to expecting than what we normally hear. So we take the plunge and dive into the varied experiences of pregnancy, from the good to the bad to the complicated--from one woman's struggle with infertility to the story of a teen who faked her own pregnancy for seven whole months.

#1708 - Women on the Verge

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 11:35:09 -0500

Remember that time you set your bed on fire? Or when you went through photos of your ex just so you could have a good cry? This week we embrace the stereotype of the fast-talking, Spanish-speaking, over-dramatic woman, inspired by Pedro Almodóvar's "Women On the Verge of A Nervous Breakdown." Two Latino USA producers set out to discover if watching all of Almodóvar's movies back to back would make them more or less neurotic. We also hear from Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez, also known as "The Human Emoji," and from iLé, a musician who is on the verge of breaking into the mainstream.

#1707 - The View From Here

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 13:15:44 -0500

Things often look different when seen from another angle, and nowhere is that more true than politics. Today on the show, what Trump looks like from Latin America— for some, his leadership style seems eerily familiar. Plus, how should journalists handle Trump's tendency of playing fast and loose with the facts? And, interviews with the first Latina senator, as well as the psychedelic rock band Chicano Batman.

#1706 - The Dream 9

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 13:00:00 -0500

During his campaign, President Trump talked about revoking DACA, the executive order signed by President Obama that protects young immigrants from deportation. As public debate looms, Latino USA revisits an episode that illustrates what's at stake. In 2013, a group of young undocumented activists known as the Dream 9 staged one of the riskiest protests in the history of the immigration rights movement. They willingly left the U.S. to Mexico, and then demanded to be let back into the country despite lacking legal status. Their efforts landed them in detention—and in the national spotlight.

#1705 - The USA v. Oscar López Rivera

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 12:47:00 -0500

Just a few days before President Obama was to leave office, he granted clemency to a man named Oscar López Rivera. In the 1970s, Oscar was considered by the FBI to be one of the most dangerous revolutionaries in the U.S. He belonged to an armed group called the FALN, which claimed responsibility for more than 70 bombings in American cities and demanded Puerto Rican independence. On today's episode— a story with secret identities and safe houses, an FBI manhunt and even a little bit of revolution. We ask the question—who is a freedom fighter, who is a terrorist, and who gets to decide?

#1704 - Departing

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 14:23:06 -0500

What remains after you say goodbye? Latino USA looks at different departures: from saying adios to President Barack Obama and examining his legacy as "Deporter-in-Chief" to a legendary conga player wrapping up his career.

#1703 - Full Disclosure

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 13:28:16 -0500

Latino USA brings you stories about people who speak up, and speak out, even when the stakes are high. Designer Mondo Guerra of Project Runway fame talks to us about the moment he disclosed his HIV+ status on national television, and how that led to his HIV/AIDS advocacy work. Sesame Street regular, Carlo Albán tells us how despite being so visible, he was hiding the deep secret that he was undocumented. Finally, Rita Moreno gives us a peek behind the scenes and discusses accents and getting roles as a Latina then and now.

#1702 - Workaholics

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 10:56:14 -0500

#1701 - Turn the Beat Around

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 10:00:00 -0500

This week we're playing back some of our favorite music stories and giving a nod to artists who put their own spin on the music scene. Simon Mejia of Bomba Estéreo breaks down how he created the entrancing song "Raíz." We hear from the Kumbia Queers, who bring a rock and roll edge on cumbia music. Jazz vocalist Jose James talks about how Billie Holliday is a radical feminist, and legendary rumba pianist Irving Fields—who passed away earlier this year at age 101—gives us sage advice on how to live a long life. This episode is guest-hosted by senior editor Nadia Reiman.

#1652 - Parenthood

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 10:45:13 -0500

Just in time for the holidays, Latino USA looks at stories about parenthood. Sesame Street's Sonia Manzano reveals how her own life mirrored her TV character's life. Maria Hinojosa opens up about being worried whether her daughter is "Latina enough." Indie musician Empress Of tells a story about the time her mom crashed her rave, and we hear about the struggles of a family that lives across borders. This episode is a rebroadcast and originally aired in September 2015.

#1651 - The Tech Industry's Leaky Pipeline

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 13:01:00 -0500

No matter the measure, whether it be race, class, or gender, the tech industry does not reflect the American work force. In this episode of Latino USA we look at that "pipeline" that brings workers into the tech industry—from programs aimed at middle schoolers to an algorithm that is supposed to eliminate bias from the hiring process—to see where the leaks are.

#1650 - Fitting In

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 14:10:37 -0500

We're all guilty of having tried to fit in at one time or another. On this episode we'll hear stories about bending ourselves to fit into new environments and expectations, as well as about those moments when we push back against those pressures and remain true to ourselves. In the 1930s, an all-Mexican American basketball team confronts racism as it sweeps the San Antonio high school league. Viral 11-year-old Saria Gonzales talks to Maria about being unapologetically herself. And, a story about navigating identity in the cruel, cruel world known as elementary school.

#1649 - Muslim & Latino

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:31:48 -0500

Latinos are the fastest growing group in Islam in the U.S. This week we look at the complexity of being part of two groups that are often targeted for very different reasons. We trace the history of Islam in the U.S., the challenges of leaving your family's religion and moving to a new one, and facing a world that refuses to accept that these two identities can co-exist.

#1648 - Reservations

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 12:00:00 -0500

The Yakama Indian Reservation in Eastern Washington is home to 11,000 Native Americans and almost three times as many Latinos. Over recent decades, the reservation has attracted Mexican farmworkers and their families who made the valley their home. Despite shared indigenous roots, living side by side hasn't been easy, and tensions between the two groups are high. On this collaboration with Northwest Public Radio, Latino USA dives into the dynamics of the reservation, exploring how two communities living side by side try to learn to get along. This episode was first broadcast in November 2015.

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 12:37:45 -0500

This week we look forward as many dig in for the possible political and legal battles to come under the future President Trump. We speak with ACLU about their promise to see Donald Trump in court, talk to a Latino Republican grappling with Trump's immigration promises, and sit down with Univision host María Elena Salinas about the future Latino media. Plus, Latino USA visits the U.S.-Mexico border to find out more about the wall that Donald Trump plans to build... and the wall that's already there.

#1646 - One Nation Under Trump

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 12:18:14 -0500

This week, we digest the results of the 2016 election. We give space to hear what Latinos on both sides of the political divide are feeling right now, from those feeling afraid for their families and their futures, to those celebrating Donald Trump's victory. We also take a close look at how the Latino vote shook out on election night, and how Trump's campaign promises on immigration might translate to policy. Plus, the history of "white rage", the election of the first Latina senator in Nevada, and some emotional voicemails from our listeners.

#1645 - Internal Affairs

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 13:09:14 -0400

This week we step back from politics on the national stage and look a little closer to home, with stories about dealing with tricky family relationships. Acclaimed author Sandra Cisneros talks about her childhood in Chicago, learning to be independent and moving to Mexico. We hear the story of two sisters separated across countries, living vastly different lives because of an accident of fate. And writer Esmeralda Santiago remembers the fraught relationship between her mother and her grandmother—and how they came together over food.

#1644 - Race to the Top

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 12:56:49 -0400

This week, we dig into one of the central issues driving the election this year: race. We speak with journalist Jorge Ramos about his new documentary "Hate Rising," in which he talks to white supremacists and victims of hate crimes that occurred this election cycle. And we hear about the activists who set the stage for Trump's rhetoric on immigration. Plus what's driving the vote of one of Trump's key demographics: white men living in the suburbs.

#1643 - Tipping Point

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:37:44 -0400

This week, stories about high-pressure situations where something builds and builds and eventually boils over, leaving the world a slightly different place. In 1977, the killing of a Mexican-American veteran by three Houston police officers sparked a violent rebellion in the Latino community that altered the conversation on community-police relations in the city. And we revisit an iconic moment in activism and sports when Cuban-American John Carlos raised a black-gloved fist on the Olympic podium in 1968. Plus, the protests at Standing Rock and an interview with singer-composer Xenia Rubinos.

#1642 - The New Deciders

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 12:29:43 -0400

This Election Day, nearly 1 in 3 eligible voters will be non-white, making the 2016 electorate the most diverse in U.S. history. In this collaboration with PBS' America By the Numbers, Latino USA travels to swing states and tells stories from the communities that are shaping politics today—in ways you might not expect. We hear from the powerful Latino Evangelical community of Florida, Muslim-Americans in Cleveland and Black Lives Matter activists in North Carolina. Who is listening to the new deciders?

#1641 - The 25 Percent

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 14:26:24 -0400

Today, Latino students make up 25 percent of public school students in the United States. On this episode—two stories about two similar-but-different public schools, and the challenges Latino kids face when they get up in the morning and put on their backpacks. We visit a elementary school in the South where 98 percent of the students are Latino. Then, the story of what happened at an Oakland high school when an influx of undocumented students stirred up a debate over how much a city is responsible for an international problem.

#1640 - Superglue

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:43:17 -0400

This week, stories about keeping it together when it feels like we're about to come apart. We visit Fremont, Nebraska, where tensions over immigrants moving in erupted into a battle over a city housing ordinance. Author and Chicana feminist Ana Castillo talks about reckoning with her son's crime and incarceration. And Instagram celebrity Arthur Renowitzky, who was shot in a robbery, talks about learning to walk again and finding a purpose in life.

#1639 - The Aftermath

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:17:01 -0400

This week on Latino USA we talk about the aftermath. What happens after one incident changes everything? Two years ago 43 indigenous students mysteriously disappeared while on their way to protest in Mexico City. Their families have been demanding justice and to see their sons or their bodies. We talk with Julissa Arce, an undocumented immigrant, who hid her status for years while working as a Goldman Sachs executive. Finally, we hear about the case of a Salvadoran woman offered a U visa in exchange for cooperation with police in a criminal investigation.

#1638 - You Are Cordially Invited to Hailey's Quinceañera

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 12:42:01 -0400

Latino USA takes a deep dive into one of the most iconic Latinx traditions: La Quinceañera. We follow the journey of one quinceañera Hailey Alexis from Whittier, California as she plans for the big day. We meet the self-proclaimed "quince lord" - a videographer, family friends who are debating whether they will have one for their daughter, and attend one of the biggest Quince Expos on the East Coast. And throughout the process we explore how the quinceañera is seen as a status symbol, a form of female empowerment, a statement about Latinx identity and also just a really fun party.

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 18:08:57 -0400

What traditions do we keep? What ones do we change? This week, we take a look at rituals and customs from different Latino communities—like piercing babies' ears and shaving their heads. We also get into the geopolitics of kissing, and we hear about one Dominican baseball player who personalized a tradition that is part of America's pastime.

Over 300,000 Brazilian-Americans live in the U.S. But for many of them, it's unclear exactly where they fit in the American tapestry. As the Olympics come to a close in Rio de Janeiro, Latino USA takes a look at topics related to Brazilians and Brazilian-Americans, from the stories of the Brazilian families that have made New England their home, to the the rise and fall of Brazil's richest man. And we ask the question— are Brazilians Latinos?

This week, stories of grit and perseverance. Elizabeth Ramirez and her friends were accused of child sexual assault and incarcerated for almost 17 years.

We also talk with JR Martinez, a veteran who suffered severe burns and the loss of his sister about facing adversity. Finally, a story about trying your best - and still not making it, from fencer Natalie Vie, who trained for the 2016 Olympics but didn't make the cut.

In Anaheim, CA, a city with a huge resort industry and a history of white supremacy, a switch from at-large to by-district elections will empower the Latino working class. And in Texas, voter suppression laws threaten Latino voters while in Georgia, one candidate has a shot at becoming the first Latina state legislator. And Maria Hinojosa reflects on what she saw at the national conventions and what that says about our national divisions.
