In January, "Anything For Selena" premiered!

In "Anything For Selena," Maria Elena Garcia goes on an intimate, revelatory quest to understand how Selena has become a potent symbol for tensions around race, class and body politics in the United States. The series weaves Maria’s personal story as a q***r, first-generation Mexican immigrant with cultural analysis, history and politics to explore how, 25 years after her death, Selena remains an unparalleled vessel for understanding Latino identity and American belonging.

Juan Diego Ramirez began listening to Latino USA on a Casio radio alarm his dad brought back to their studio apartment back in 2005. When he got his first car, he would listen to public radio while he drove. At his first internship, it struck him that he was one of the few POC in the newsroom.

"The staff had little diversity. But, listening to Latino USA encouraged me to keep on doing what I love—radio journalism," he said.

Juan Diego met Maria Hinojosa while she was on tour. During that meeting, he explained he was "an early-career journalist who had learned so much from her work."

"She looked me dead in the eyes and told me, 'You should come and work for me someday,'" he said.

Her words struck a chord with him. Just a few years after that meeting, Juan Diego moved from his hometown of Los Angeles to New York to complete his last few years of college. In 2019, he landed his dream internship, at, where else, Latino USA!

"I couldn’t believe I was among the people I once listened to for acceptance as an intern at OPB back in 2014," he said. "It was surreal."

And, Juan Diego has been at Futuro Media ever since! He's been promoted from an intern to a Producer at Futuro Studios. Now, he's the one who gets to work with up-and-coming journalists.

"I hope to inspire the same feeling I had when I first stepped into Futuro Media’s office a few years back," he said. "Futuro has left a positive mark in my life and career and it is an honor to be able to share that with the world through my work."

How does technology affect labor? How are tech corporations like Uber and Lyft redefining what it means to be a worker in the United States?

California has been ground zero for cementing the “gig work” business model of these companies into law. A year ago this month, the state passed Proposition 22 to allow app-based firms like Uber and Lyft to classify their drivers as contractors instead of employees.

In this episode of Latino USA, we follow a group of drivers who are mobilizing across California—and using their own technology to take on Big Tech. Their fight is not only about their own labor protections as drivers, but a battle to prevent this labor model from spreading to other sectors of the U.S. economy.

A 2021 hit show for Futuro Media was "Suave." "Suave" is the story of a man who has been serving a life sentence in Pennsylvania since he was just a teenager. Suave had a rough start—as a teenager walking into a maximum-security prison he says he was a target, and much like in the neighborhood where he grew up, Suave decided he had to be tougher than everyone else.And that’s the life he’s leading, in and out of solitary confinement, when he meets Maria Hinojosa in 1993.

"Suave" has earned over 530,000 downloads and maintains a 4.9 star average of rave reviews on iTunes with over 1.1K reviews. And, it has also been nominated for the International Documentary Association awards for Best Multi-Part Audio Documentary or Series.

In the 1960s and 70s, a community of Latinx poets in New York City created a movement. They called themselves the Nuyorican poets. Together, they broke barriers and built a cultural institution: the Nuyorican Poets Cafe.

The Nuyorican Poets Cafe began as an informal literary salon in Miguel Algarín’s apartment living room, one of the movement’s founding poets. But soon after, Miguel and his fellow writers realized that they needed to expand to accommodate the growing roster of artists who frequented the space. They moved into a new venue nearby, and by 1981 they relocated again to the Nuyorican’s current location in New York City’s Alphabet City.
Today, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe is a haven for Black and Latinx writers and performers. In this episode of Latino USA, we stage a spoken history of the cafe featuring several artists from its storied past. We hear from poets Poet Jesús “Papoleto” Meléndez and Caridad de la Luz, known as “La Bruja,” playwright Ishmael Reed, and artist and archivist Lois Elaine Griffith.

Futuro Media, we have learned first-hand the power of longer, in-depth fellowships. Because of this, we are now working to fund more fellows. Monica Morales-Garcia is currently one of our fellows, and she says that she feels like it's "a meant-to-be moment.”

“Before this fellowship I was a teaching assistant and it consisted of grading hundreds of papers every semester, and providing students with feedback. During the group edit I felt like I had been training for that moment my entire graduate career— group edits and grading papers are pretty similar, both are asking—'How can this research be better? What would make it the connections more thoughtful?’ It felt like a meant-to-be moment.”

“This fellowship is important to me because in a few short weeks I have already gotten my hands dirty by learning to cut tape, script-writing and participating in editorial meetings. I feel encouraged to pitch and produce my own stories, something that I am not sure I would be able to do without the fellowship! I'm looking forward to learning more, with my goal of telling stories centering Q***r Black Latinx people like myself.”

In this fellowship, I had the opportunity to produce shows that center the voices of women of color, in addition to producing weekly Friday shows, which are a roundup of the week's latest news. From pitching ideas to producing, I found immense support from the team and our hosts.”

For Ayodele Casel tap dancing is magic. As a young high school student, she dreamed of one day dancing like Ginger Rogers as she recreated Ginger’s moves in her bedroom But it wasn’t until Ayodele Casel was a sophomore at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts that she took her first tap dancing class. That was her entry point into the art form which would eventually lead to a more than 20-year career as a professional tap dancer. As a Black and Puerto Rican woman, Ayodele Casel didn’t see herself reflected in the mainstream image of tap dancers because the form has been largely whitewashed through systematic racism. For that reason, she works tirelessly to remind her audiences that tap is deeply rooted in Black art and culture.

In this episode of “How I Made It,” Ayodele takes us through her tap journey and reclaims tap dancing as a Black art form.
