When God Calls Your Bluff
Last weekend I had the honor to visit with migrant youth who had been separated from their families. These children WERE NOT in ICE custody, thank goodness, but they still have a long stressful and scary journey ahead of them. While I couldn't capture footage of the experience, understandably so, I do want to tell you about it. So here's that. (also ran into some audio issues shortly after pressing record so my bad for that.) God bless you, thanks for listening.
For The Misunderstood
Recently, Lupe Fiasco allowed me to be a part of his new album Drogas Wave, doing a radio break. Earlier this year, J. Cole allowed me to be on the radio in his Kevin's Heart music video. 2 things I thought I'd never get to do because I'm not in radio before but they are further confirmation that I made the right choice. This podcast episode is dedicated to anyone who ever felt like something was wrong with them because others wouldn't accept their authenticity. This is for the misunderstood.
How To Mourn
I’ve been trying to figure out just how to adjust to the news of my friend, Mac. And while that still hasn’t happened. An idea came to me. On Mac’s track “Soulmate” he says, “When you’re gone, what will you leave behind?” As I heard that, I felt: document this Letty, share this Letty, serve others with what you’ve learned, Letty. This episode isn’t close to what he leaves behind musically, but I made it with love and as an extension of our friendship from then, and now, for anyone who may...
Why I Love/Hate Eminem's Kamikaze
Eminem just dropped a surprise album, mainly focusing on clapping back at his critics but there's DEF more you should be paying attention to. Also, I gotta be real and share what bars didn't hold much weight to me even though every one else is praising them. Basically, if you love the album, listen, if you don't, listen.
It's been heavy on my heart as I'm sure it's been to many others seeing these videos and hearing audio of children who have been separated from their parents/family members. I want to help and just calling my congress rep or donating to charity/lawyer groups doesn't feel like enough on my end. So I decided to call on God in prayer. This video is for anyone else who'd like to join me in prayer. It's not to argue, complain or hate, it's simply to send my call to God and love to these...
Advice Before You Die Too Soon
One night I was up and on the brink of a panic attack when I turned it around instead and made the most motivational tool out of something so debilitating like the thought of death. If you listen to any of my podcasts, make sure it's this one.
The Mestizo Wins The Race
For a couple years now I've been battling with a notion that my race as (hispanic/latino/brown/tan) DOESN'T EXIST. Even worse was being told that I can only be black or white. In this episode I will share what happened to me and where it's led me. This may sound heavy because it is. To be told you aren't who/what you've always known yourself to be can be a very scary thing. But the outcome is something I feel everybody in my same position has got to hear.
Between A Rock And A Kanye
Kanye's on a troll and I've challenged myself to empathize with him. Listen to this now cuz it'll probably be dated once he posts again. jk but not really. Also, let me know your thoughts AFTER you've listened to the whole podcast. Promise I'm not choosing sides and that's tougher than it sounds.
Thanking Drake Later
I never thought I'd be so appreciative to Drake for a song and for recent actions but that moment is actually here. Listen as his latest "nice for what" takes me on to a convo about the trials us women have to go through in a club setting and this man's world in general. Promise it's not a combative talk but a very productive one.
Whus Yo Addiction!?!
The podcast episode the devil didn't want you to hear! Got a heartbreak hack you can use to get over your ex quicker PLUS how we really should be looking at addiction. Love you!
Inconsistency Is Key
How Watch The Throne, a metaphor from Pitbull & a 2Pac soundbite helped me get over my inconsistency
Did you know you've been looking at your new year's resolutions/goals the wrong way this whole time? It's all good, I got you with a hack that'll work out so much better for you and it'll only take you 3 minutes to learn. lol sounds like an infomercial, but really it's a gem. listen for yourself and you're welcome in advance :) -- Letty
