Episode 6 – Dangerous Minds

in Latin[ish] by

A two-hour late-night discussion with author, playwright and publisher Jonathan Marcantoni (Tristiana, Puerto Rican Nocturne, La Casita Grande Press) on everything from the brown-washing of pre-Columbian history, puritanical liberalism, and the conservative nature of Latino culture, to the crises in art and literature, and the state of the #MeToo movement.

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.
