It all started three years ago when I discovered podcasts. I was mesmerized with the amount of information I was able to absorb as I was on the bus to school, while walking to class and eventually driving to work.
I've been hooked to podcasts ever since. One thing was missing, nobody was talking about people like me. People that grew up speaking Spanish, Spanglish and broken English, people who dealt with immigration issues first hand, people who deal with racial issues on a day to day basis.
Finally, it hit me. While I've been searching how I could share my story and allow others to heal, the platform was in front of my eyes the whole time: I could create my own Podcast.
If you know me, you know that I play a lot with my voice. In fact, when I presented the idea to my friends the said "Are you going to do your normal voice or your reading/commercial voice?" Nosé, I'll do whatever voice I'm in the mood to do that day.
Cafe con Pam is scheduled to launch November 1, 2016. It is happening fast. Before my birthday, before elections. We need to make sure our voice is heard. Let's make it happen.
