In this week’s episode we have an interview with food blogger Vianney Rodriguez, we take a look at the new season of “Empire,” and we talk about our personal rules in friending (and unfriending) people on social media.
Vianney Rodriguez is an award-winning food blogger, recipe creator and author. She specializes in recipes that evoke the memories of growing up in a Mexican household. Her blog is Sweet Life, and you can find the links to her social media channels from there. Her book, “Latin Twist,” provides cocktail recipes from 18 Latin American countries; it’s available on Amazon.
Fox’s runaway television hit “Empire” is back for a second season. The show follows the struggle for power in the Lyons family, all of whom are trying to take over the record company that’s supposed to be a family business. The show airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm CST.
How do you decide when to accept a friend request? when to block? Sandra, Juan and Anjelica talk about this and other “social” topics.

In today’s episode we have an interview with Mikaela Selley, Hispanic Collections Archivist at the Houston Public Library. Mikaela talks with us about the Latino Veterans Oral History Project and the “Remembering World War II: Houston's Latino Veterans” exhibit. The exhibit is on view until November 14, 2015 at the Houston Public Library. The Latino Veterans Oral History Project will be housed at the Houston Oral History Project when it’s completed.
Latino television mainstay Don Francisco (born Mario Kreutzberger) is retiring and Sábado Gigante is ending, with the final episode airing on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at 8 pm EST. The show has been on the air 53 years. We talk about our memories and experiences with the show.
Horror director Wes Craven passed away. Wes created the very successful “Scream” and “A Nightmare on Elm Street” film franchises, among many others. We talk about our experiences with the movies, and the hole he leaves in the entertainment industry.
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we talk about Latinos who have influenced us, including: Sandra Cisneros (author of “House on Mango Street”), labor activist Dolores Huerta, actress Maria Elena Velasco (known for her La India Maria character), Victor Villaseñor’s (author of “Rain of Gold”), and actress Salma Hayek (best known for her roles in Robert Rodriguez’s “Desperado” and “From Dusk Till Dawn” movies).
On this episode of The Little Radio Show we talk to a representative of Houston’s premier Latino arts community center, Talento Bilingue de Houston (TBH). We discuss some of Hollywood’s latest blockbuster productions: “Straight Outta Compton” and “Fear The Walking Dead.” And we take a jab of answering that age old question “what’s in your purse?”
Viridiana Maldonado, spokesperson for Talento Bilingue de Houston, talks about the importance of the arts in the Latino community, as well as the mission of this important organization. She also shares some of TBH’s most exciting upcoming events.
Anjelica and Sandra share the must have items they can’t leave the house without having in their purses. While Juan tries to comprehend why women like switching out purses so often, when he can keep a wallet for years on end. Links from this episode:
We’d also like to thank our generous underwriters for this episode of our show: The Kroger Co., Pisco Portón and Talento Bilingue de Houston sponsored our official launch party in Houston on Thursday, September 3, 2015.
In today’s episode we sit down and talk with Frida Villalobos, spokesperson for Neighborhood Centers, and take a look at Periscope, the latest “hot” tool in social media.
Neighborhood Centers is the largest non-profit in the Houston area. They recently were featured in the New York Times, in an article entitled “What Do the Poor Need? Try Asking Them.” The article takes a look at their methodology, “appreciative inquiry,” and how the approach has impacted how they work with communities in and around Houston.
Periscope is one of the live streaming apps that launched earlier this year. Owned by Twitter, it’s the preferred live streaming option for show host Anjelica. In this segment we find out why. Show links:
