Episode 137: La Lotería

Nov 21, 2019, 01:00 PM
In this episode, los batos de LWL play the beloved game of La Lotería! From its colonial origins to the ways our communities engage with its iconography, this board game has been part of the Latinx imaginary for more than one hundred years. In the sprit of the ABC’s of Latinidad, FavyFav and Babelito deconstruct each and every card with criticism and lots of humor. Also, Cynthia Neri Lewis from Rio Hondo College wrote her master thesis on this popular game and she weighs in the racist history of some of its cards. Stick around 'till the end for some art podcast recommendations from FavyFav and Latinx music from Babelito. And as always, make sure to send your emails to AskLWLPod@gmail.com and we might read them on a future episode. #podsincolor #supportbrownpodcasts #supportlatinxpodcasts #supportlatinxbands #lwlpod
