Assimilate This Tom…No Fraps For You!

59 minutes

Rays Talk Show Episode 296: Host Ray Collazo is joined by Executive Producer Vanessa Maria Graber and Vanguardia Arizona’s James Garcia to discuss Tom Brokaw’s comments on Latinos on Meet the Press. How does Brokaw’s non-factual opinions about Latino assimilation impact immigration debate and nation’s overall understanding of U.S. Latino history? How do Latinos raise their voice in these debates with little access to corporate media channels?

Starbucks’ CEO Howard Schultz is rattling Democrats who are concerned his independent candidacy would spoil a potential Trump defeat. Is Schultz a conscious moderate or an arrogant billionaire?

Collazo also provides his latest analysis on the overall Presidential race in the debut of our “Stacking 20s” segment. Collazo and Graber also share their thoughts on the provocative Fyre Festival Documentary on Netflix.

This episode was dedicated to Jussie Smollett and wish him a speedy recovery from a vicious attack this past weekend. We also dedicate this week to legendary R&B Singer James Ingram and bachatero Yoshkar Sarante, who both sadly passed this week.

This podcast originally aired as the “What’s Next” Radio Show on WPPM 106.FM in Philadelphia. You can listen to the What’s Next Show and all the station’s content at or the TuneInApp.
