Que pasa con podcasting? This month is an extra special one for us at FRQNCY. Yes, the leaves are finally changing and it’s not blistering hot anymore (por fin), but more importantly it’s the month when we celebrate the Latinx community and all of the creativity, sazón, and #werk they contribute.
Without this community, FRQNCY Media wouldn’t even exist. Our CEO & Founder Michelle Khouri is a proud first generation American from Colombia and is the reason behind this first-of-its-kind podcast company.
To help us celebrate Latin@s everywhere, Michelle put together a list of her favorite podcasts by Latinx creators…so you know it’s legit.

Mija Podcast is produced by Studio Ochenta, a multilingual podcast studio dedicated to raising voices across cultures
