Episode 23: Classics

If we have any hope of understanding where we’re at today, we’ve got to look back. This week, we talk about classics: songs by artists who changed the game and became icons – from fierce mujeres sin pelos en la lengua to immigrants bringing their cultures to thrive in a totally new place.
