Life as a Gringo

Life as a Gringo

“Life As A Gringo” is a podcast from Z100 On-Air Personality, Dramos. The show represents the voices of American-born Latinos who live their lives existing in a gray area. Those who are looked at as a gringo or “too white” by their family back in their native land, but were constantly reminded that their house smelled different or their parents music was “weird” by the people they grew up with. This is life as seen through our eyes. “...one feels at home in both places, yet at home in neither place” - Ed Morales
