MJ joins to talk shadow people, duendes, Dia de Muertos and many intricate nuances of Latin American culture!

She is the co-host of Espooky Tales, a podcast which covers the paranormal and folklore from a Latin American perspective, emphasizing obscure stories which are oftentimes overlooked due to language and cultural barriers. She is also an experiencer of high strangeness!

We discuss her paranormal experiences and how they may be framed from the view of her diverse cultural heritage, as well as the cultural significance of her favorite holiday: Dia de Muertos, and how it is oftentimes misinterpreted and appropriated.
