On this episode, Tamarindo hosts Brenda González and Ana Sheila Victorino reflect on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bather Ginsburg, #RBG, hours after learning the news. They talk about what this means for the future of our country, the hypocrisy of Republican Senator Mitch McConell and the overall sadness we are collectively feeling. 

Next, Brenda and Ana Sheila talk about redefining notions of success as they reflect on their chat with award winning journalist Maria Hinojosa about her recent book “Once I Was You: A Memoir of Love and Hate in a Torn America.” Transformation coach Ana Sheila discusses some helpful exercises we can all try as we consider (or re-consider) what success means. Many of you deeply connected with Ana Sheila’s recent post where she said “I’m measuring how ‘successful’ I am by how well I’m unlearning the definition of success as one driven by money and ‘recognition”. Taking that quote as a starting point, Ana Sheila reveals some tools we can use to unlearn too!

As team Tamarindo thinks of Latinx Heritage Month, there is only one journalist that stands out as one who inspires us to use our voice in podcasting (and beyond!) and to apply a critical analysis to the ways that people of color are reported on, treated, or otherized. That journalist is Maria Hinojosa. Maria joined Tamarindo on September 9th on the start of her podcast tour discussing her fantastic book, “Once I Was You”,  a riveting read that Brenda finished in one sitting. Through a heartfelt reflection on her remarkable journey as a journalist, Maria provides readers lessons on the history of the United States’ treatment of immigrants and tells us how she chartered her own path to success doing work that makes her proud (and makes us all proud).
