Meneito 12: Winter Feels

We were gonna do a (anti?) San Valentín meneito, pero we just weren’t inspired. Y saben qué? This is our podcast and we do what we want! So instead we have a different collection of songs for all our winter feels: a balm for invierno blues, a ballad for giving up on love, and rich analogue synth goodness.

Featuring music by Bairoa, Eddy Lover, and Rubio.

Episode 46: Latinas Who Brunch

Hello hello helloooo (que show que show que show)! We’re changing things un poquito today in honor of our podcast amigos Latinos Who Lunch, whose Radio Lonchea homages to our format inspired us to return the favor. This one’s definitely a different one for us! We’re ditching the música (just for this week!) to have a long-form convo about our podcast, the rationale for choices that we’ve made behind the scenes, sexism and misogyny in podcasting, name and gender anxiety, and a little bit about our lives outside of Radio Menea.

On the podcast we spoke about our other project babies, linked below si quieren saber más:

Go follow Latinos Who Lunch, #SupportLatinxPodcasts, y hasta la próxima (w lots of música, no se preocupen)!

Episode 44: Intentions

Feliz añooooo!!!! We celebrated, we ate our uvas, and now we’re back and tryna be better cada día, so we made a few intentions for 2018. From commitments to having bomb-ass sex to cultivating a bit of lightness, we think our list is pretty solid. You won’t find any bullshit diet industrial complex resolutions here – though you will maybe hear one Zumba-related intention (but only because Zumba is joy!). Y claro, songs to go along with each intention – because in the end we are who we are.

Featuring music by Ozuna & Cardi B, Luis Fonsi & Demi Lovato, Karol G & Bad Bunny, Huey Dunbar, Mon Laferte, and Yotuel & Julca Brothers.
