This is a long-form conversation with friends and guests about anything that we fancy or care about. To provide a service for listeners that want to hear or submit stories from people who call Brownsville, Texas or The Valley their home. The mainstream media outlets have one narrative of us, and our guests and this podcast live another. We will expose you to people that live in this borderland and let them respond to national discussions about immigration, violence, border security, and drugs, to name a few. We want to document and share the voices and stories of this border town to the world. We will make this as professional as possible so it can be informative and representative for the listener, but not dull or depressing for the ones attempting to remain sane. I hope you will approve of the podcast. Thank you
