Episode #40: Liberation and Ancestors in Mexico with Lorena Aguirre

My dear friend Lorena Aguirre joins me on the podcast today. Lorena has a very popular podcast in the Spanish-speaking world called Con Amor, Carajo! in which she addresses those living within a deeply Catholic, patriarchal existence to spread messages of feminism and empowerment to those who do not benefit from these systems.

Together, we talk about what Lorena’s experience was like as a woman in patriarchal Mexico, her connection with ancestors (or rather, what I’m sure many can relate to, guilt over a lack of connection with her ancestors), the importance of Día de Muertos, and Lorena’s work with empowering other women.

“I am from a place that celebrates life and death—that makes rituals and celebrations and even makes fun of death.” -Lorena Aguirre
