[Publisher’s note: Isimo Podcast has broken up as of July ’22.]

Imagine you’re a young comedian, who just crushed it at the mic, going outside to cool off, when some older comic shouts from behind his cigarette, “Ey foo, you’re funny, but you should be louder on stage!”

That happened to one of our guests – the hosts of Isimo Podcast, Rian Reyes, Dominic Angel, and Gerardo Alarcon – and it’s symbolic of all the shit pochos get for not speaking Spanish. We talk about where suburban Chicanos fit into the cultures they’re caught between: the old working class immigrant background, and the opportunities for people like them in entertainment that seem to be reaching critical mass as so many people are now some kind of content maker. They never expected to ride a wave this big. Where will it take them now?
