A new Latino Rebels Radio podcast is out. We thought the issue of self-identity in the U.S. Latino community when it comes to using LATINX was so 2015, but apparently not? The last few weeks, a debate that some (like us) would say is just manufactured has been front and center. LR Radio’s Julio Ricardo Varela talks with guest Giancarlo Sopo, whose USA Today opinion piece from late October has struck a nerve with people, leading to questions about political ideologies and why self-identity is well, so damn personal.
