Bustle, the premier digital destination for millennial women, announces the debut of Latina to Latina, a podcast interview series hosted by Bustle Contributing Editor and award-winning multimedia storyteller Alicia Menendez, with episodes released weekly.
Latina to Latina features conversations with notable Latinas, and dives into what it’s like being a woman of color in the United States today. Menendez gets to the heart of the stories and issues that matter most and that affect young Latinas today, from DACA and the #MeToo movement to professional opportunities and questions of identity. The first episode kicks off with a revealing discussion with Orange Is The New Black’s Jackie Cruz. Cruz speaks candidly about who the entertainment industry believes to be the “right kind” of Latina and why she’s more politically engaged than ever before.
Future episodes include conversations with The View’s Sunny Hostin, actor and comedian Cristela Alonzo, and U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto. From discussing harsh performance critiques with Hamilton’s Mandy Gonzalez, to pushing the boundaries of angel investing with Pipeline Angels’ Natalia Oberti Noguera, to learning how to navigate corporate America with Viacom’s Daisy Auger-Dominguez, Menendez and her guests hilariously and openly reveal their mistakes, their triumphs and their lessons learned.
“I’m really excited to celebrate amazing Latinas,” Menendez said. “Throughout my life, I’ve relied on other Latinas to point me in the right direction, to remind me that I’m not alone, and to assure me that it can be done. I cannot wait to share those candid conversations with people striving to do more and to be more.”
