The Hoodoisie launched at La Catrina Cafe in Pilsen on January 20 of this year. Founder Ricardo Gamboa hosts this radically politicized, biweekly live news show podcast in a different gentrifying neighborhood every month. Gamboa invites co-hosts and speakers to share the experiences and perspectives of everyday people—particularly people of color, queer people and working-class people. The show features discussions with artists, activists and comedians; interviews with social changers and saboteurs, political figures, culture makers, often with musical guests.
