Miguel welcomed Dr. Jennifer L. Rudolph to the podcast to discuss Baseball as Mediated Latinidad, including racist Latino Threat Narratives in baseball that are a microcosm of US white supremacy society. Dr. Rudolph is an Associate Professor of Hispanic Studies at Connecticut College and author of Baseball as Mediated Latinidad: Race, Masculinity, Nationalism, and performance of Identity. Dr. Rudolph's research interests include U.S. Latino expressive cultures, Latino identity formation, transnationalism, urban studies, and teaching Spanish to heritage/native speakers.First, Miguel asked Dr. Rudolph why it was essential for her to analyze new forms of media, such as social media, for her book, Baseball as Mediated Latinidad? Second, Miguel also asked Jennifer about her opening chapter, "La crema de Sammy Sosa," and her analysis of legendary Dominican and former Chicago Cubs star Sammy Sosa. Specifically, Miguel asked Jennifer to explain how specific events tied to Sosa's career and post-career intersected with race, class, and gender issues.Next, Miguel and Dr. Rudolph discussed the controversy regarding Marc Anthony singing the national anthem at the 2013 all-star game and how it was another example of Anthropologist Leo Chavez's Latino Threat Narrative. Miguel and Dr. Rudolph also discuss how the World Baseball Classic and the 2017 Puerto Rico National team connect to nationalism, race, assimilation, and masculinity. For example, Dr. Rudolph discussed how her analysis of the Puerto Rican national team showed the contradictions between Latinos perceived as threats by white fans instead of representing nationalistic pride to Puerto Rican fans.Furthermore, Miguel asked Jennifer about the connections between baseball, language, and racialized capitalism. Lastly, Miguel asked Jennifer about her chapter on Major League Baseball's development, labor structure, and practices at their academias in the Dominican Republic and Venezuela. Dr. Rudolph summarized the system and explained how they resemble the history of US imperialism and colonialism in Latin America. To end the podcast, Miguel gives you his Molotov MVP for episode 30, the legendary Pittsburgh Pirate and Hall of Famer, Roberto Clemente. Tragically, Roberto Clemente passed away in a plane crash 49 years ago today, on New Years' Eve 1972, while providing humanitarian aid to Nicaragua to ensure that the US-backed Somoza right-wing government would not steal the post-earthquake aid.

In November of 2021 the very first one hour special of Aida Rodriguez arrived on HBO Max, called, "Fighting Words". I watched it and was hooked. Obviously, years had gone into making a comedian this savvy and honest and, oh, yes, funny. She got to me on every level. This is a special woman with a very clear and brave path. In the special, she takes to the stage to address today's audiences about cancel-culture and the social issues of the day, not just because they're ripped from the headlines, but because they are in the pages torn out of her personal life. Her family members are in attendance at this show shot in The Bronx. The plan was for her to meet her biological father, whom she met for the first time, on camera. The hour concludes with a travel documentary of Aida's trips to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic directed by award-winning Puerto Rican documentarian Nadia Hallgren (Michelle Obama's "Becoming"). The doc celebrates Rodriguez's vibrant Puerto Rican and Dominican heritage as the cameras capture her reuniting with her estranged father and paying it forward for up-and-coming comedians.  Aida is also presently developing her own half hour comedy series with HBO Max based on her own incredible life story, which includes surviving two kidnappings, sexual abuse, and a period of homelessness with her children. The series is co-written and Executive Produced by Rodriguez, Chris Case (Showtime's "Flatbush Misdemeanors") and Nastaran Dibai (Netflix's "Dear White People"). In 2019, Aida's half hour special premiered on Netflix's hit comedy series "They Ready", Executive Produced by Tiffany Haddish and Wanda Sykes. In reviews, Esquire Magazine declared “This is Rodriguez's genius—using comedy to turn pain into progress, to give voice to the voiceless, and to laugh instead of cry.” I loved my conversation with this talented, driven person, who I had the pleasure of meeting through this podcast. That, for me, is the gift of doing a podcast.

I've been a fan of Robin de Jesús since Camp, nearly 20 years ago.  But de Jesús is more than Camp, he's built a stellar career with work in television, film and of course, theater where he's a three-time Tony nominee, earning nods as Featured Actor in a Musical twice (2008's In the Heights and 2010's La Cage aux Folles) and Featured Actor in a Play for the 2019 revival of The Boys in the Band. Born in Norwalk, Connecticut, he always loved to sing and would join his family in the Parranda, the Puerto Rican version of caroling, during Christmas and go from house to house wherein that house's family would then join and go to the next house until the group grew into most of the neighborhood. It gave him the outlet for his voice and also a creative outlet for his family ("they sort of identified as factory workers but at that time of year they were musicians") and it pushed him through his school years to explore the possibility of making it a career. After 2003's Camp, his first feature film, de Jesús landed a career breakthrough, the part of Sonny in Lin-Manuel Miranda's In the Heights, a relationship that would bear fruit once again with the theatrical feature version of Jonathan Larson's tick, tick...BOOM!, bringing him full circle back to Miranda, who directs. His performance has earned him Hollywood Critics Association and Satellite nominations for Best Supporting Actor. Throughout our 30m conversation, we talk about the electrifying response to the film's world premiere at AFI FEST in November and the actor gets candid about his well being and mental health during the shooting of the film ("I wasn't choosing the healthiest thoughts") and how he broke through it to recognize love and blessings in his work and being present in his own life. We talk about his onscreen co-star Andrew Garfield, the depiction of the friendship between a straight man and a gay man on film and what that means on a larger scale. We also take a look at the state of representation of queer and Latino actors and what representation means to him, the difference between who should play certain roles and who even gets a seat at the table from the ground floor of auditions and casting, what his dream role is and more. tick, tick...BOOM! is now streaming exclusively on Netflix.

Then David Maraniss, author of Clemente: The Passion and Grace of Baseball's Last Hero, stops by to talk about his live broadcast relaying the news of Clemente's death, why he decided to write a Clemente biography, the awe Clemente inspired in fellow players and Manny Sanguillén searching for Clemente's body. Finally, longtime MLB player and coach Joey Cora discusses learning of Clemente's death at the age of seven, Clemente putting Puerto Rico on the map, how Clemente paved the way for all Puerto Rican players in MLB and his favorite Clemente highlight.

This week on Poetic Resurrection we have Luivette Resto. We discuss her poem Living on Islands Not Found on Maps. How growing up bi-culturally and using Spanglish or as I like to call it “fusion of words”. We had a great time conversing about Puerto Rican culture. I love guests I can laugh with and laugh we did. Luivette Resto was born in Aguas Buenas, Puerto Rico, but proudly raised in the Bronx. Her two books of poetry, Unfinished Portrait, and Ascension were published by Tía Chucha Press. Her third collection of poetry is from FlowerSong Press. Living on Islands Not Found on Maps I live on an island not found on maps. Growing up in the shadows of one of the most popular surnames: García. I speak Spanish to my abuela on Sundays but rely on Google to help my children with their homework because the accent rules never stuck. Stress or unstress? Penultimate syllable? Took the paradoxical college course: Spanish for Bilinguals where every Tuesday Prof. Cruz de Jesús would shake his head with indignation at my use of the familiar tú versus usted. No me conoce, he said. He was right. He didn't know me and I didn't know him or the proper word for bus or orange juice. What I did know is summers in Puerto Rico, eating quenepas as relatives asked, ¿No entiendes lo que dijo tu primo? And my abuela defending my tongue. This tongue. Colonized not once but twice. Leaving me isolated at family reunions. Feeling inadequate for my inability to conjugate on command. Sounding out store front signs while riding the #42 bus on the way home from Kindergarten where I concentrated to understand Mrs. Farrell's lessons about the seasons. But I finally found a home between Bronx bodega aisles, code switching with my homegirls about how many times Juana beepeó that boy we saw standing in front of él building. This became the island where I belonged. Unfettered and absent of red pen corrections. Juana didn't care if I used the tú or the usted or if my yo was about me or an emphatic reaction to her crazy story. This island didn't care if I rolled my r's or ever got the purpose of vosotros. An island where our bodies translated feelings: pursed lips, a raised brow, an aggressive eye or neck roll. We were bilingual neologists, inventing new lands we could carry in our Timbs and bubble coats. Here, language, like us, wasn't disappointing or broken. “Living on Islands Not Found on Maps” first published on The University of Arizona Poetry Center's website Nov. 2020.

Additionally, we speak on the issue behind our generation's short attention span in relation to the efficacy of our advocacy, as well as the importance of ridding ourselves of elitism in activism. Finally, we spoke about art, not only as activism, but as a way to see beauty in the mundane and what this can do to not only connect us to others, but to ground us.

Steven Spielberg's new version of West Side Story is here -- and it's fantastic -- so we're re-visiting our 2016 show on the story of Lincoln Center, with a new podcast introduction discussing the film and the passing of musical icon Stephen Sondheim. The fine arts campus assembles some of the city's finest music and theatrical institutions to create the classiest 16.3 acres in New York City. It was created out of an urgent necessity, bringing together the New York Philharmonic,the New York City Ballet, the Metropolitan Opera, the Julliard School and other august fine-arts companies as a way of providing a permanent home for American culture. However this tale of Robert Moses urban renewal philosophies and the survival of storied institutions has a tragic twist. The campus sits on the site of a former neighborhood named San Juan Hill, home to thousands of African American and Puerto Rican families in the mid 20th century. No trace of this neighborhood exists today. Or, should we say, ALMOST no trace. San Juan Hill exists, at least briefly, within a part of classic American cinema.  The Oscar-winning film West Side Story, based on the celebrated musical, was partially filmed here. The movie reflects many realities of the neighborhood and involves talents who would be, ahem, instrumental in Lincoln Center's continued successes. boweryboyshistory.com Originally released as Episode #218, December 9, 2016 Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/boweryboys See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Star Wars games have been few and far between since the acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney and the dissolution of LucasArts. Needles to say when the surprise announcement of Star Wars: Eclipse occurred with a trailer drop we were excited! However, after reading up on the studio responsible for the game, we were concerned and apprehensive about the game and Lucasfilm's commitment to representation. This game is set during The High Republic era, an era fleshed out in publishing and known for how good it's representation of women, PoCs, and the LGBTQ+ community. All this great representation in publishing is somehow contradicted by having the game developer be known for anti-LGBTQ+, and misogynistic comments. We explore all this and if we can practice 'death of the author' while contrasting this with J.K. Rowling, her anti-trans views, and the impact on the Wizarding World.

Since he recorded 2 episodes with us in 2019 he is now the General Manager for the LeBoys Club in Fort Lauderdale. Lively gay hot spot with food, full bar & a patio, featuring dancers, DJs & drag performances.We have always known that Milani would become super successful - he just needed to find the right opportunity. We are so very proud of him.This episode he tells of his traumatic years in high school and beyond,. - it is heartbreaking truly. Milani tells us that his only job at this time is being a gay stripper. We find out that he grew up in white suburban America, where everyone was "judgy" and "bitchy". He found out that he was gay at age 16, but never had a chance to really process and decide to come out on his own, because of a dramatic event at his High School that exposed him to everyone without his consent. He has not had a relationship with his parents or siblings in years and he feels bad that he has not put more effort into that.He grew up in an abusive household and went straight into an abusive relationship. He was too young to realize all that was happening to him. The guy who he thought loved him manipulated him into being an escort and was a Pimp. Milani then took the fall for everything when he got caught selling cocaine, after selling to an undercover cop 3 times. He says that there was a point where he stopped being a victim but became a willing participant. He was living his best life. He went to prison for 2 years. He tells us how much it sucks being in prison as a gay person. He shares that he got raped a lot until he found himself a Puerto Rican boyfriend who protected him.We feel like Milani got dealt a really bad hand in life, because we see his kind and caring heart and we tell him how bad we feel for him. He matter of factually tells us that Life is what it is. You have to listen to him tell us about refusing to accept the early release from prison, because he was so in love with his boyfriend, who betrayed him the second he left prison, only to go back to his wife and never talk to Milani again. When he first came to Texas he landed in Roanoke with a guy he met on Craigslist and was hugely disappointed. But once he saw Dallas and started working at the gay strip clubs he fell in love with the City. He shares the story of when he was a houseboy for a gay couple in Cedar Springs which is a gay neighborhood in Dallas. You have to hear him talk about having sex with girls and what he thinks about that. Milani has an entrepreneurial spirit and loves to learn from business people and is planning an exit strategy out of this dark whore world soon. But for now he finds his Sugar Daddies in Strip Clubs and is a Sugar Daddy himself to young, handsome boys. This is the end of the first episode with Milani - stay tuned for the next episode where we get even more details about his very interesting life.
