“The Time Is Always Now” Live from Chicano Park!

49 minutes

Found In Translation Episode 328: Host Ray Collazo is joined by special co-hosts Margo Porras of the “Books vs. Movies” Podcast and ‘The Cuban Lion’ Nissim Leon for a very special two part show live from the Por Vida Café in the Barrio Logan/Chicano Park community of San Diego. Porras shares the legacy of Chicano Park and how it symbolizes the history of resistance and community for Latinos in San Diego.

Max Gonzales of Chicanos Por La Causa in Phoenix, Arizona joins the crew to discuss the shared history of community building, culture and political awareness between San Diego, Phoenix and Los Angeles. The owners of the Por Vida Café, Carolina and Mylo, also stop in to discuss what the Barrio Logan business corridor means for their families. Carolina and Mylo are true inspirations for activists and young entrepreneurs. As Carolina said, “the time is always now.”

Collazo, Porras and Leon share what this unique moment in San Diego should teach all of us about the power of podcasting and the legacy of Erik Estrada.

Support Margo Porras in all of her endeavors. She was an incredible host for us in San Diego and has many worthy projects including her podcast “Books Vs. Movies” and her new book “Growing Up In La Colonia.” And if you are ever in San Diego, support “Por Vida Café” in Barrio Logan. A true home away from home. Listen for Part II of this special episode featuring James Garcia, Naomi Shelton and Nissim Leon.
