Podcast: Yuca and the Domnioes

Teenagers who I don’t want to set on fire and a “family matters” type of theme that’s genuinely sweet.  That’s this week’s podcast!

You know how sometimes you dig into something and you just plain don’t know enough to even know what you don’t know?  And then if you brazenly push on you’re likely to show off that you didn’t know what you were doing, even if you nail the narrow things you researched?

I had the opposite problem with this week’s podcast.  I took one look at the story and went, “But I don’t know what a Cuban accent sounds like.  Or a Cuban American accent.  What if I read the story and all the characters sound like they’re from Argentina and everybody hates me for being an incompetent gringa?”

I may have overreacted a smidge.  Joe (the author) was very good natured about the whole thing.  Thanks, Joe!

The rest of you, go check it out.

  1. I hadn’t seen this blog post at all, and tonight an IRL friend of mine pointed it out! You did an awesome job with this story–and your “drunk Carmencita” is something I will treasure forever!
