14.12: Writing The Other — Latinx Representation
Your Hosts: Dan Wells, Tempest Bradford, DongWon Song, and Julia Rios
Julia Rios joins us to talk about writing characters who come from one of the many Latin-American cultures or subcultures. “Latinx” is a catch-all term for people with Latin-American heritage, including mixed-race people. In this episode we talk about mash-up cuisine, intersectionality, and how to navigate the subtleties to find the specific cultural elements which will help you create Latinx characters.
Credits: This episode was recorded by Bert Grimm, and mastered by Alex Jackson.

Thing of the week: Sal and Gabi Break the Universe, by Carlos Hernandez.
