Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This is a thought-provoking and informative podcast that gives a voice to Latino narratives and a deep insight into Latino communities across the nation. Listeners of Latino USA will dive deep into issues, stories and people that are often left out of mainstream media. One episode features Hector Rodriguez III, a Chicano schoolteacher who created the graphic novel series "El Peso Hero." He explains the need for representation in comics, and discusses how he weaves life at the border into his work. Another episode talks about the forgotten indigenous migrant languages spoken in Los Angeles, and the importance of visibility. Latino USA creates a beautiful podcast community for Latino listeners while also appealing to anyone with a love of history and culture who wants to learn more about Latino stories in an American context.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
