Self-Conchas Podcast

By Stephany Cortez
The Self-Conchas Podcast is a Latina hosted podcast that talks about everything and anything. The name itself is a play on words “self-conscious” as in life there are so many things that make us feel “self-conchas”. The podcast talks about several topics including some that may be uncomfortable to discuss in everyday conversations. The overall feeling of the podcast is meant to be as if one is talking to their friend while enjoying some conchas and cafe or chocolate de abuelita.

S1E14: Moments and Conchas (Part 1)
*Listener Discretion is Warned* This episode will touch on some heavy subjects and may trigger some listeners.   In this episode, we are joined by Melissa, the Latina Host of Moments with Melissa Podcast. On this podcast collab episode, both Melissa and Stephany disclose the ordeal of the traumatic events surrounding each of their siblings and how that altered their relationship with God, their families, and themselves. Both Melissa and Stephany will go into detail about how such events affected their mental health and the repercussions that ensued for not seeking help earlier and for not being a space where talking about the struggles of mental health was normalized. We hope this episode will shine some light on the importance of prioritizing one's mental health.  FULL DISCLOSURE: We acknowledge Eztli's non-binary sexual orientation and respect their chosen pronouns of they/them/she.  While Stephany does at times say "brother" or "him/he" pronouns, please be aware that Eztli had given her permission to continue using said pronouns and refer to them as "brother". In the moment of the conversation while it was failed to be corrected, please know that unless someone has given you permission to do so, continue to use their chosen pronouns out of respect.

S1E12: It's a Conchas and Wine Night (Part 1)
In this episode, we are joined by the ladies from the Wine Not Podcast, Ady and Chany! We talk about their podcast, what you can expect and what they hope to accomplish with their podcast. In addition, given that Valentine's is just around the corner we also thought it fit to talk about the concept of self-love and beauty. Ady, Chany, and I discuss how beauty has been defined by society, culture and subculture, and many other factors and has affected the way we love ourselves. However, in this episode, we aim to dismantle that narrative and remind you that in the end you only really need yourself to love you wholly and fully for who you are.  Social Media for Wine Not Podcast Instagram: winenotpodcast_ Twitter: @winenotpodcast_ Social Media for Ady & Chany Instagram:  _diamondglam xo_chany Twitter: @_diamondoll @xo_chany
