In this Wiri Wiri Las Pochas discuss the culture of grief in the Latine community with a healthy dose of humor and wit. 

The holidays are coming up and that means Pocha Picks! Las Pochas are sharing 12 places to go for gifts that are from BIPOC and/or LGBTQ businesses online. And go early so you can get some shopping for familia and yourself. 

Las Pochas get to the heart of chisme: fijate que chisme has value! They also unpack how it's different from gossip, tea, or talking $hit. Grab café and pull up a chair for chisme with Pochas. 

November is almost here, but voting season is already upon us. Las Pochas talk about your voto being your voz. Plus who decides what we can read and how proximity to whiteness and power turns BIPOC folx against each other. 

Las Pochas are reaching back in the archives for a best of wiri wiri. Revisit the politics of passing in the dominant culture. 

In this episodio Las Pochas talk about self-sabotage and take on reactions, retakes, and remakes that include Queen Elizabeth, La Reina Selena, and (gasp) Black Ariel. 

On this month's wiri wiri Las Pochas talk to elected officials, Johana Bencomo and Angelica Rubio, who also double as judges for the Pocha margarita throw down. This time, it's better than the tortillas. Grab your tequila and join them!

We're in our 40s... in episodes and age. This month, Las Pochas get into whether now in their 40s, they are seeing signs of señora life. They chat about zip code and social capital research. Also Latine food is getting appropriated once again. Now there's a reactive twist. 

This month's wiri wiri is sparked by a TikTok creator. Las Pochas talk about passing in the dominant culture specific to the Latine community. 

It's July, but in some parts school is about to begin. Las Pochas talk shortened summers, early school starts, and shortages. Plus in Que Hay de Nuevo, they go to space with Kat Voltage - the first Mexican-born woman in space.
