E35: Puchica in the Midwest (w/ Victor Interiano & Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik)

Soleil and Zahir meet in the Midwest—sort of. They catch up on their adventures as Soleil prepares to depart to Mexico once again.


In this episode, we speak with Victor Interiano, creator of Dichos de un bicho, a blog centered on issues that concern Central Americans and Latinidad. Interiano is also the creator of a left-of-center charismatic cartoon cat named Puchica Puchin. 


We also run a story on Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik that was previously published on Raw Material, an arts and culture podcast by SFMOMA. Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik is a conceptual artist working with craft and food to tell the stories of migration that is based in Oakland, California.
