Episode 19 – Modern Macho

in Latin[ish] by

Hector chats with his old buddy from Chicago, Claudio Cortés, now living in Milwaukee. Claudio was a fellow contributor for Gozamos in Pilsen and the former host of the podcast Modern Macho. Topics include: machismo and raising daughters, race relations in Milwaukee, ‘the Latino condition,’ Selena, CTE and the NFL — the usual potpourri of a Remember the Show! episode.

Hector is the editor of MANO. He's also the host of Latinish and Hits from the Brain. A Chicagoan living in Las Vegas, he's a former deputy editor of Latino Rebels, as well as a former managing editor of Gozamos, an art-activism site based in his home town. He has contributed to RedEye, a Tribune-owned daily geared toward millennials. His work has been mentioned by The New Yorker, TIME and other outlets, and his writing was featured in Ricanstruction, a comic book anthology whose proceeds went toward recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. Hector studied history (for some reason) at the University of Illinois-Chicago, where his focus was on ethnic relations in the United States.
