33 - Odyssey to the North - Latinx Literature in the US
Play • 54 min

Immigrants bring their languages, beliefs, customs, and hopes with them, but reality forces them to renegotiate their dreams, thus creating an amalgamation of new conceptions. The literary narratives of  Gina Valdes, Mario Bencastro, and Jorge Ulica presented in this episode show different aspects of such negotiation of cultures. In the comments, we present two interviews with author Paz Ellis and researcher Dr. Clara Rodríguez, who talk about the challenges children of immigrants face and who gets to enjoy the American Dream.

110: Six Minute Sex Ed w/ Kim Cavill
Talking openly about sex is very new to me. I openly share about religion and parenting but have little experience sharing about my sex life. It feels very private so it’s hard to be vulnerable in that way. A lot of parents experience this same issue in trying to raise their own kids with healthy sexuality. This week’s guest, Kim Cavill, struggled through the lack of sex education as a child and is now passionate about keeping other kids from going through what she did. Kim started teaching sexual education for people with disabilities and those who worked with them in Australia. She now hosts the podcast Six Minute Sex Ed. On her podcast, she gives children the information and tools they need to not be as vulnerable to sexual trauma and abuse. Tune in to hear Kim and I discuss sex ed and how to discuss sexuality honestly. Show Highlights: * Kim’s story and her experience with religious trauma. * How to balance the privacy of our sex lives with the need to make those conversations open and public. * Why there is such a lack of sex ed in the home. * Research from the Kinsey Institute on our sexual identifications and behavior. * Why parents need to think of themselves more as a mentor to their kids than a teacher. * How to work through our own triggers when we talk to our kids about sex. * How to talk about sex-positivity in a sex-negative culture. * Why education isn’t a switch you can turn off and on. * How to stop carrying others’ trauma. * What our kids really want to hear from us about sex.

22/01 - Un final tumultuoso y un comienzo complicado
Con toda la tradición democrática de Estados Unidos, fueron necesarios 25 mil soldados y la militarización de la capital federal para que el pasado miércoles se celebrara la toma de mando de su nuevo presidente, Joe Biden. Fue una ceremonia marcada por la ausencia de multitudes como medida preventiva frente a la pandemia del coronavirus, que ha castigado a ese país con cerca de 400 mil muertos a la fecha, y cuyo manejo se alza como el desafío más urgente de la nueva administración. Pero sobre todo estuvo marcada por los eventos del 6 de enero, cuando una turba de partidarios de Donald Trump asaltó el Capitolio mientras el poder legislativo sesionaba para certificar el resultado de la elección presidencial de noviembre. El temor y las amenazas de nuevos incidentes determinaron el férreo control policial y militar de la ciudad, y cargaron de un sentido extra las palabras del discurso inaugural de Joe Biden, quien celebró “la democracia ha prevalecido”. Ahora, el nuevo presidente enfrenta desafíos titánicos y urgentes, con una economía en serios problemas y el peor mercado laboral de la era moderna. Con una mayoría muy ajustada en ambas cámaras, Biden debe decidir cómo sacar adelante su agenda y a la vez defender el dominio demócrata en las elecciones legislativas de 2022. Por su parte, Donald Trump, quien rompiendo una tradición centenaria no estuvo presente en la ceremonia de cambio de mando, se retiró a Florida con una promesa de “volver”. Le espera el juicio político en el Senado por su responsabilidad en los hechos del 6 de enero, mientras el partido Republicano debe decidir si cortar definitivamente con el ex presidente o intentar seguir cortejando a su electorado, con los riesgos que eso implica.
