Listen to Season 1
Wellness Chisme Chat is a podcast where guests co-create a space to share how they incorporate wellness into their lives from a BI&POC perspective. We may experience pain, trauma, and hardships as we work to build a more equitable world. That's why it's more important than ever to build a space we can post up with our cafecito to center how we care for ourselves, the community, and world.
