10 Podcasts Created by Afro-Latinx
I've begun a new series on my Instagram page called #TrueLifeYourAverageAfrolatina. Because again, there is no prototype, right? We come from all walks of life, with many different traits, hobbies, talents, and stories. I posted my first one on January 5th of this year (in search of podcasters) and thought it would be a good idea to share my findings with you all! If you want more info on each podcast, click on the podcast titles to be redirected to their Instagram page.
*I will continue updating this post as I come across others.*
