Episode Notes

Come for a night of entertainment and network with others working on immigration reform, and people active in the podcasting world!

My featured guest is Eliana Fernandez: activist, mom, #Dreamer, and lead organizer @maketheroadny. Her story, from never having shared her story publicly, to becoming a part of the national immigration dialogue is the inspiration behind the podcast, and we’re excited to bring it to you on this stage.

Daniella Vieira, singer/ performer, and DACA recipient featured on the Grammy Award-winning album ‘American Dreamers’ will be joining us for a conversation and performance - making her a two time guest of the podcast, and we’ll also talk about how a Twitter conversation, became a remix, which became an opportunity.

Professor Mario A. Murillo, Vice Dean of the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication and I will have a conversation about the evolution of the podcast and the opportunities that have been created for myself and my guests alike, and how podcasting is not just about commercial success, but is a powerful driver of social and cultural functions.
