¿Y Tu Abuela Donde Esta?

S1M1- ¿Y Tu Abuela Donde Esta?

Lu here with our first Minisode.

In this first minisode we have a mic-mashup. Our last episode talked about how many Puerto Ricans consider themselves a mix of Spanish, Taíno , and African heritage.

During our interviews for the season, kept coming across this phrase "¿Y Tu Abuela Donde Esta?" or "And where's your grandmother?". This phrase worked its way into the vernacular via a poem by Fortunato Vizcarrondo and has come to be a way ask someone what their ethnic background or heritage is.

It felt like our guest were having a conversation about this topic with each other and so I wanted to share that with you all in this first minisode to bridge our conversation about Boricua Taíno heritage last episode into our discussion of Afro-Boricua heritage in episode 2. Hope you enjoy!

Soy Taino: El Sol y El Coquí

S1E1 Soy Taino: El Sol y El Coquí

Welcome to Rico en Sueños! We're talking Puerto Rico all season through the voices of Puerto Rican creators.

In the first episode we take a look at the Taíno Sun and Coqui symbols. The Taíno are the people indigenous to several islands of the Caribbean including Puerto Rico (also known as Borikén).

We talk with Alexandra Román about Obsesión, her debut sci-fi novel and the first book in the Divine Ascension trilogy, and Ronnie Garcia about their project Baba Guey. Through the episode we explore how the Taíno people and symbols are important to their work, their heritage, and their lives.

So tune in to the non-fiction podcast about fiction and its very real effects on our lives, and rock with us throughout Rico en Sueños.

Coming Soon: Rico en Sueños

The island of Puerto Rico has been in the news a lot for the past few years. However, many of us still don’t know much about its people and their history, and the little we have learned rarely comes from Puerto Rican voices. With that in mind, this season on the Power of You in Fiction, we present “Rico en Sueños”. We’ll talk to Puerto Rican creators about their relationship with the island, how it influences their work, and what they hope to share about the island with the world.
