Ep 130 - Little Willie G  

As a teenager, Little Willie G headed up an East L.A. band referred to as "the Chicano Beatles". Thee Midniters' sound defined Chicano rock music and Chicano culture throughout the 60s and beyond. Willie would fall prey to the dark side of the music industry and develop a problem with drugs and alcohol. His testimony and music was one of the only cassettes we had in my rehab and I really got into his music. Today, Willie has overcome all of those problems through a relationship with God, started a ministry and continues to perform all over the country.

Ep 129 - Richard Cabral  

I met actor Richard Cabral a couple years ago at the Hoy Awards. He read a poem and talked about Homeboy Industries. I immediately wanted to know more about him. So glad he stopped by to talk with us. Listen to how he came up through a life of crime, institutionalization and danger in East L.A. and somehow ended up being nominated for an Emmy for best supporting actor.

Ep 128 - Martin Rizo  

Met this guy Martin Rizo a few years ago as a young, naive comic who started out sleeping on his mom's couch and making goofy internet videos - some of which went viral. He's still making those videos but he's graduated to his own apartment now... I think... he's also grown as a stand-up comedian and has even done a few commercials on the side to pay the bills.
