Episode for September 28, 2022
Hello there a reader of show notes! Thank you so much for taking a few moments to read this. I know your time is important and I am grateful to have you spending some with me! A longtime listener named Ronnie Gonzales told me I needed more Latinos on the show so I immediately took his advice and reached out to one of the all-time great journalists of his generation Ray Suarez. We had a really great talk while he is teaching for NYU in China!
I also cover a few new stories at the top and have a little fun. OK on to the show !
