This may be way overboard for a 30-minute weekly show, but whatevs. It's on NBCUniverso on Wednesdays at 2pm/1c I think.
ETA: This post is being repurposed to include all talk shows, not just Latinx Now.
So the #1 most important thing I learned from this show...it sounds like "Latin-X."
The three young people they have hosting have good chemistry and they will break into Spanglish whenever, so I'm just enjoying listening to people who sound like the voices in my head 🙂
Amigovios is a word I don't think I've heard before.
Cowboy boots are "in." In case anyone was wondering. And not just with jeans.
This one's once a week, right?
ETA - oh reading is fundamental. I see that now.
And if you check Twitter, I retweeted their status from today that says something about it also being available on Telemundo's YouTube channel, but I don't know if that's a new episode or a repeat.
OK, so "cabello aplastado" is flat-ironed hair. Nas's snorty laugh cracks me up. I'm disappointed they didn't do the segment they did last time where they read tweets that were in English and then translated them into Spanish.
I recorded this today and just finished watching. I assume this Sunday episode is a rerun of this week's episode.
I do like the 30 minute once a week format, but you're right about it having a lot going on.
I didn't catch anyone's name, but I totally caught that snorty laugh and I love it!
This is probably too young and hip for me to take full advantage of, but it will be great for finding new musical artists for using in class. I joke with my native speakers that my musical tastes are probably closer to their abues or bisabues.
Example of "too hip for me" - they were talking about "cuffing" season...which I think is just getting a pareja for the holidays? I'm definitely old. Even when I was young that's not something I would do. Lol.
I'm looking forward to another episode.
I skipped the whole "dating" thing, so it's all new to me.
And I couldn't figure out the linguistic reason for calling it cuffing. Anything I did come up with was gross.
I think it's the typical bad joke about getting handcuffed, shackled, "the 'ol ball and chain," and in Spanish the esposo/esposado pun.
Oh! I also forgot to say that they said something about the Eva Longoria Grand Hotel project. I'd forgotten about that. Is that still happening? Or did I already miss it?
Whew! I haven't missed it. I need to keep an eye out for it though!
Jencarlos Canela is supposed to be in it, playing an over-the-top singer. (Am I spelling his name right? No coffee yet.)
They interviewed him on the episode I watched. That must have been why it got mentioned, but he didn't talk about it during his mini interview.
I vote we put all the chisme in one place. Or I guess I should say talk shows, because they're not exclusively chisme. Half of Latinx Now is Nas and her snorty laugh or the three hosts cracking jokes with each other.
