This Week’s Captions: Abuelos

Latino USA explores the special bond between Latinos and their grandparents. We talk to TV’s most famous Latina grandma Ivonne Coll, the abuela on Glee, Jane The Virgin and Switched At Birth. We talk about the importance of grandparents, from our ancestors to today. We hear stories of grandparents raising their grandchildren, including a Dominican grandma that supported her transgender granddaughter when no one else would. We talk to Chilean writer Isabel Allende about how her grandparents put the magical in her magical realism. We hear memories and grandparent stories from our listeners, and we end with sabiduría or words of wisdom, about saying goodbye.

A dangerous fungus lurks in the dirt of California’s Central Valley. But there’s little funding for research to combat it. We’ll learn what some people are doing to educate local people, and about the ways Latinos get medical care.

This Week's Captions: Palabras by Latino USA

Latino USA, the foremost Latino voice in public media and the longest running Latino-focused program on radio, is the first radio program to commence equal-access distribution via Captioning for Radio.

“Research has shown that Latino children have a higher incidence of hearing loss and deafness than other populations,” according to Latino USA’s Anchor & Executive Producer Maria Hinojosa. “When the opportunity to break this sound barrier came to our attention, we were pleased to embrace this new technology developed by NPR Labs and Towson University for the thousands of Latinos with serious hearing loss.”

The International Center for Accessible Radio Technology (ICART), a strategic alliance between NPR and Towson University, is co-directed by Mike Starling of NPR and Ellyn Sheffield of Towson University.
