Fitness Entrepreneur Melissa Alcantara is Always in Beast Mode
28 min

Before you follow her on social media or try out her tailored fitness routine, there’s one thing you need to know about fitness coach and entrepreneur Melissa Alcantara: “I approach everything in beast mode.” And why shouldn’t she? She went from being in the worst shape of her life and feeling hopeless after years of yo-yo dieting to training her body and mind to achieve olympian fitness levels. And did we mention Kim Kardashian asked her to be her personal trainer. Melissa tells Alicia how she made it all happen by sheer will and determination.

In this episode, Babelito interviews Stephen Andes, a professor from Louisianna State University (LSU) and author of Zorro's Shadow: How a Mexican Legend Became America's First Superhero. They talk about this character's Mexican legacy and how Hollywood whitewashed him into a Spanish Latin lover. But before, Favy and Babelito talk about their favorite Thanksgiving recipes and their post-election blues.

Our Election System is Based on 5 Black Ppl Being Worth 3 white but the US is definitely a Democracy
I know because my fascist government that sends its CIA to destabilize other countries it criticizes for not being democracies in bloody coups that kill millions of innocents all over the world while waging genocide against Black people for over 3 centuries while begging me to send $3 to a white cis man in order to save the country from another white cis man told me so...even though we don't have a direct election method and I actually vote for another random person in my state to vote for me--not the president.
