You speak Español? Pt.2 - No Sabo Kid Group Therapy

So we got our first TWO Parter in El Pochcast and it’s looking at Spanish, Pochos hablando español y no hablando español, some of us speak it all the time, some of us now and then, and some of us rarely speak it if at all but we’re all Pochos. And it’s a two parter  Because our language is a BIG Deal, we can’t even form thoughts without language, it can be something unites us and something that separates us. Something that brings immense joy, and also intense pain. So speaking spanish, and what it means for pocho culture is a deep topic that could cover a million episodes but for now I’ll just do two. The first part deals with the pochismo of using spanish when english won’t do, and the second deals with the pochismo of not growing up fully speaking spanish. Both episodes feature the voices of pochos and pochas from all over the country and all different backgrounds and I’m so grateful for all of them, so I hope you enjoy these two episodes….listos? Amonos pues….

This episode features: Ricardo Rivera, a writer and civil rights worker from Houston, TX. His writing has appeared in Teen Vogue, Texas Monthly, and Latino Rebels. Read the piece I mention on the podcast here and you can find him on twitter @rjrivera89

Marisa Tirado,  a Latina poet from Chicago and graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. She is the founder of an international collective called Protest Through Poetry which provides seminars, publishing opportunities, and creative community for activist poets of color. She’s also the author of the chapbook “Selena Didn’t Know Spanish” which you should absolutely purchase and you can find her on Instagram @marisatirado****
