On this latest episode of The Little Radio Show the focus of our conversation is all about U.S. Latinos. From how we are creating our own online and offline communities and sisterhoods, to the challenges of diversity inclusion in Hollywood still today. We also discuss the importance of giving back and adopting a philosophy of philanthropy.
Our guests include Ana Flores, founder of the annual We All Grow Summit and the digital influencer network Latina Bloggers Connect; Cyndy Garza Roberts, Public Affairs Director for Texas-based grocer H-E-B and President of the Latin Women’s initiative; and Mexican actor Alex Ruiz who stars both in Hollywood productions and on Spanish-language telenovelas.
In our “In Case You Missed It” segment we take on Beyonce’s Lemonade and Gen Z.

This week on The Little Radio Show we talk about the new USA network’s show “Queen of the South.” It’s an American adaptation of the internationally-renowned Spanish-language telenovela “La Reina del Sur,” which was produced by Telemundo and starred Kate del Castillo. It’s also based on the book that started it all, authored by Arturo Pérez-Reverte.
The USA version will star Alice Braga as Teresa Mendoza. Supporting cast includes Justina Machado, Peter Gadiot, Hemky Madera, and Gerardo Taracena. Here’s a trailer for your enjoyment.
Of course, it wouldn’t be “The Little Radio Show” if we didn’t veer off topic a little. This week we discuss the status of Latinos in entertainment and why we don’t see enough roles for and by Latinos on TV and Film.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, this week we’re dedicating our entire show to the wonderful women in our lives who also happen to be mothers. Whether it’s our own mom, ourselves, a sister, a niece, or someone we don’t yet know, every person dedicating their time and energy to raising a family deserves a little recognition.
This Mother’s Day we spent a little time with style and parenting influencer New Mom in a New Era who shared a little about her journey as a young mother. We also reminisced about some of our most memorable moments with our own moms.
Tune in and share some memories of your own about what makes Mother’s Day so special.
