Joanna and Jenny talk about what they did over the holidays, the types of superstitions Latinos observe for New Year Eve, some other New Years rituals from around the world, and why those types of traditions can be so strange but important. (*PLUS Hyphenated will be taking a short break in the new year, with a new episode coming later in January.*)
Las estrellas de comedia Joanna Hausmann y Jenny Lorenzo presentan un podcast en inglés acerca de la experiencia de vivir entre dos culturas. Cada semana tienen conversaciones muy divertidas e interesantes sobre las particularidades de ser tanto americanas como latinas.
Hyphenated producer Kevin shares a compilation of the best moments over the last 100 episodes –including the topics of childhood, family and the weird & spooky– which have informed Joanna and Jenny’s experiences with ‘living in the hyphen’ (plus some of the best guests that have been on the show!)
To commemorate the 100th episode of the podcast, Jenny and Joanna look back at how Hyphenated came to be, and then read emails from listeners, including one person that listens to the podcast when they are feeling lonely, another who was inspired to give up being a telemarketing scammer and go back to theater, and few who were encouraged to get diagnosed and go to therapy after listening to the show (PLUS Kevin finally airs his grievances about what is the hardest part of producing the podcast!)
Joanna and Hyphenated producer Kevin share what they believe to be some of the most annoying and pointless platitudes-passing-as-advice out there, including “Follow your dreams”, “There are no dumb questions” and «Don’t go to bed angry», they discuss why some of those saying are so pointless or even harmful, and then try to figure out how to update and improve the advice to be more useful. (Plus Joanna twerks!)
Jenny and Joanna welcome their friend Carolina Ravassa, a Colombian-American actor who voices the character Sombra in the video game OVERWATCH, as they discuss the process and experience of being a voice actor, how the interactivity of video games is different than the passive relationship with film and TV, and what it’s like to interact with fans of immensely popular characters you bring to life (PLUS Joanna finally comes out as a video game nerd!).
Joanna and Jenny discuss the recent turmoil at Twitter, share their memories of long past social networks (such as AOL, MySpace, Tumblr and Vine), talk about the ways they utilize and engage with current social media platforms (like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube), and examine how Millennials went from LiveJournal to LinkedIn.
Jenny welcomes back her best friend Karla Guerra, who was born in Honduras to her Honduran mother, but raised by her Colombian step-father’s family in the United States, as they talk about her experience not feeling Colombian, Honduran or American enough, growing up with family members who felt the need to overly-explain why she looked different than them, what it’s like to interact with Hondurans when she wasn’t raised with their customs and food, and how being “extra-hyphenated” might actually be the basis of Latin American culture.
Hyphenated producer Kevin shares a series of deleted conversations and funny moments that were cut out from the (almost) 100 prior episodes, including when Johanna and Jenny talk about why they’re glad they were average looking when they were kids, reveal the times they feel they might’ve been bullies to others, Joanna schools Kevin on the difference between an elevator and an escalator, and Jenny has to stop recording because she found out her fans think she had a secret baby.
Joanna welcomes back comedian and writer Eitan Levine, to discuss the growing concern of antisemitism in the mainstream sphere, including recent inflammatory statements from Ye (formerly known as Kanye West), share their experiences with the harassment they receive when being openly Jewish on the internet, and dispel myths about Judaism.
Joanna welcomes Evan and Andrew Gregory, part of THE GREGORY BROTHERS musical group that create the “songify” hits you all know (“Double Rainbow”, “Bed Intruder”, “It’s Corn”), as they discuss being YouTube pioneers, how they ended up becoming the internet’s premier remix masters, and the mystery and math behind going viral online.
