It’s Cinco de Mayo and we want to give our neighbor Mexico a shout out. Mexico has been getting no love in recent times and we’re here to make up for that. So this week we are covering stories featuring some interesting Mexican folks. Dana shares with us the incredible story of Amelio Robles Avila, a transgender male Colonel from Mexico. Nydia shares the story of history’s worst nun, Sor Juana. She was a feminist before it was a thing. Cindy shared some stories sent in by listeners.
For dinner this week, Cindy treated us to some birria tacos straight outta Tiktok. For dessert, she made a delicious chocoflan that tasted like pure happiness. The meal was paired with strawberry basil margaritas in honor of our neighbors to the south.

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
