On the podcast this week, we talk MTV's TRL reboot and how they need to seize the Latino music opportunity to be successful, plus, we discuss HBO and it’s controversial new slave series CONFEDERATE with the creator of the #OscarSoWhite April Reign. She and four women have now created the #NoConfederate campaign to boycott the show. Will HBO succumb to social media pressure?Also, Venezuela has spun into utter chaos and the US has imposed financial sanctions that could cripple it for good. Rafael Bernal, reporter for The Hill Latino, joins me to discuss how these sanctions will affect gas prices in the US and if Venezuela will ever regain its prosperity. And if you’re interested in knowing what to watch this month, I had a chance to visit the TODAY Show with my August Preview of what to see in theaters and on TV. EPISODE SUMMARYMTV's TRL reboot and the Latino opportunity :15The Hill Latino's Rafael Bernal on Venezuela and its murky future 4:33JackedIN (recap of pop culture stories) - 22:11April Reign discusses her new social media campaign #NoConfederate against HBO - 23:39This week's music playlist - 31:05Unforgettable (Latin Remix) - French Montana (feat.
