Immigration lawyer Carolina Rubio-MacWright breaks down the ugly truth of what happens to women who leave horrendous situations, some with their children, seeking refuge in the United States. She teamed up with Mamas Con Poder/Moms Rising to help women in all kinds of situations and show the world that we aren’t just all undocumented, there are amazing Latinas changing the game.
With the immigration campaign, Mamas Con Poder have been focusing heavily on TPS and the DREAM act. And, giving more visibility to detention centers, especially incarcerated women with children. The Women’s Refugee Commission did a very extensive report stating that in within the first 6 months of the Trump administration taking office, there was a 60% increase of women detained. Which means many more women are being denied bonds. It’s causing a lot of trauma and issues. The scariest part: Women and children are being separated now more than ever. But not all is lost. Tune in and see what you can do to help undocumented moms and their kids.
To top it off, Rubio-MacWright will leave you floored on all that she does as an artist. She shares her thoughts on her the universe, intuition and how being open and letting things happen instead of resisting the moment.
For more information, check out their website MomsRising.org or MamasConPoder.org, if you want to read it in Spanish.
Podcasters Rachel Strauss-Muñiz and Juan Bago lit up the room with straight up comedy! They discussed their comedic journey, how they both met and even offered success advice to future Latinx storytellers. Hear how our conversation went from loud to louder when agreeing we want more Latinx-owned media companies, more money for our content, how pastelitos in Jersey are the best (and the cheapest!), and how Juan Bago's alter ego 'Latin Daddy' sounds super pornographic (google it).
Founder & CEO of Financially Wise Women Brittney Castro is here to switch up the relationship you have with money. She’s been on a mission to help the next generation learn new ways to manage new businesses successfully and wants you to know that abundance is everywhere. But first you have to believe that because we all have right to that abundance.
She gives money tips from weekly money dates to nailing down your monthly budget to writing hate and love letters to your debt, all in the name of nurturing your relationship with money. Brittney even drops knowledge on what every woman should know before going head first into being a small business owner. She gives us insight in how much risk should be taken, what uncomfortable questions we should ask ourselves before starting, and how long it really takes to get a small business up and running.
We sat down with Chief Happiness Officer of LeslieInc.org, Leslie Juvin-Acker, and had a conversation around spirituality and how she found her calling as a life coach. Leslie is refreshingly candid about her various super powers and the journey that taught her how to tap into her "inner bruja". Be prepared to get enlightened!
To find out more about Leslie or should you need a badass life coach that will change your life for the better, you can keep in touch via her via social media @leslieinc.

string(17) "February 14, 2018"
While motherhood comes with its share of exhaustion, new mami and intuitive Tatianna Tarot says she’s very grateful that it’s also given her the ability to step out of herself and realize that being a new mother has broadened and heightened her sense of purpose and awareness. She even delves into how she is trying to micromanage her energy because energy is vital for survival, especially as the matriarch of her family and business owner. As Tatianna put it, “Self care is whatever you need to do to give yourself an extra dose of self love", on Valentine’s Day and every day.
You might just be surprised to hear how this bruja stays centered when she transitions from boss witch to house witch. She shares what essential oils she’s been turning to recently to calm down, wake up and bring joy, which have also helped her tap into her own magic. Tatianna also walks us through her birthing story and the real struggles no one talks about. And, we also get into pregnancy sex positions, getting her brujo in training boo on the show, and our love for black cats.
Spoiler alert: We even release an impromptu PSA for the fellas who are dating or married to pregnant brujas.
Share this with a friend who needs to indulge in tangible self-love/care tips, bruja mom real talk, or someone who may need a private reading by Tatianna Tarot. Don’t forget she will be in New York City (Shout out to The Trap Witch!) for her event (sold out!) but will be around for tarot card reading classes. Hit her up here.
