There are countless podcasts that cover geeky and nerdy subjects that we cannot get enough of. From Star Wars ruminations to comic deep dives, there’s something out there for pretty much anyone who loves genre. However, many of the podcasts that get a lot of shine and support often have white hosts. This isn’t shocking considering the ever-pervasive issues of fandom gatekeeping and giving certain people a platform while others have to fight for their proper recognition. But there are just as many podcasters with one or more Latinx hosts that offer some excellent critical analysis and pure fun to pop culture. So, let’s show a few of those brilliant podcasters some love and help you add to your massive list of podcast subscriptions!
