Whichever podcast genre you are into, we made a list of Latinx podcasts worth checking out. The list has several podcasts with various topics if you’re looking to learn something, stay entertained, or get inspired.


LOUD: The History of Reggaeton

This new Spotify podcast has got to be one of our favorites. Ivy Queen gives us a crash course in each episode on the history of Reggeaton. “LOUD” dives into the origins of perreo, historic movements behind this genre, and features many artists who have redefined and contributed to reggaeton.

Yeah No, I’m Not Ok

The Latinx community is very aware of the stigmas attached to mental health issues within our culture. Actress Diane Guerrero started this podcast to get others to open up and talk about this topic that affects so many. Guerrero and other celebrities of color explore issues like body image, anxiety, depression, and addictions. A Latina with a platform whose podcast is solely about mental health, what is there not to love about this?

Cafe con Pam

A bilingual podcast where the Latinx community and people of color join Pam Covarrubias and speak on different topics in each episode. Examples that are close to our hearts are immigration status, healing our inner child, and rewriting our narratives.

Locatora Radio

The feminist Latina podcast you didn’t know you needed. Diosa Femme and Mala Munoz are two Latinas who are killing it. Brujeria, pop culture, dancing, chisme, art, you name it, this duo has talked about it. This relatable and entertaining podcast is one you don’t want to miss.

Joy Uprising

Marginalized QTBIPOC stories often are focused on trauma and unhappiness, but Gabby Rivera is changing that. She is starting a joy revolution with this podcast. Rivera is a queer Puerto Rican storyteller that created “Joy Uprising” to show there is still joy despite every hardship the community faces. Every episode, she asks every guest, “what brings you joy?” and we get to hear different stories being celebrated.

Latinx Can

Dr. Jeniree Flores Delgado started a podcast where Latinx Professionals can give career advice, wisdom, tips, support, and encouragement. The Latinx community must see that they are our future doctors, scientists, astronauts, and whatnot. This podcast encourages us, Si Se Puede!

The Latina Mom Legacy

Mamas also deserve a podcast to help them through parenthood. This podcast, created by Colombian American mother Janny Perez, helps mothers navigate raising bicultural children, provides advice, and tackles many other subjects. Mamas do not need to know everything, which is why podcasts like “Latina Mom Legacy” are so important.
