A SHARP & WITTY Latinx Writer

 I’m Ruben Mendive, la lista host. 


 la lista podcast is a podcast hosted by Ruben Mendive interviewing latinx writers every tuesday on Oye Dimelo Network and across podcasting platforms online. la lista is a platform for underrepresented voices to share their thoughts, ideas, and stories about the world around them. la lista features interviews with latinx writers from all over the country as well as LA-based artists. These conversations are meant to be insightful, empowering, educational, and entertaining for listeners of all backgrounds. la lista strives to provide an opportunity for latinx community members to have an open dialogue about issues that affect us personally while also providing resources for those who wish to learn more or participate in our communities outside of la lista’s scope. la lista is a platform that embraces intersectionality and the diversity of latinx identity while also pushing back against harmful stereotypes. la lista also works to provide space for people who identify as queer, trans*, gender non-conforming, disabled, differently abled, working class, poor/economically disenfranchised, from immigrant families or religious backgrounds — often communities which are never heard in mainstream latinx media. la lista is committed to promoting the voices that have been silenced for far too long, while striving for intersectionality between all marginalized groups. la lista podcast is a space of dialogue where we can begin to heal together as a community.
