Art is back with Karla this week, along with two new co-hosts, Rebecca and Eddie Valdez, Karla’s cousins. The topic they discuss this week is the idea of growing up brown/Mexican/Latinx/whatever it is you grew up identifying as, and how their perceptions changed over time. They discuss how living in El Paso can shelter you from some of the racism other Latinx folks receive and endure in other parts of the U.S. as well as how they have grown to appreciate who they are as they’ve gotten older. The guest this week is guitarist, double bassist, and teacher, Jesus Apodaca, who is also currently working on a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Peabody Conservatory. Art and Jesus continue the conversation on Latinx identity and delve into their experience growing up in the music scene in El Paso.
