For the rest of the month, we will be taking a break off from new shows, which means we are going back to our Latino Rebels Radio archives with a rebroadcast from November 6, 2019.

Here is what that 2019 episode is all about:

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.
