The theme of our podcast is: pop culture matters. On My Block, a show about brown and Black teens in the community of Freeridge coming-of-age, living, and adventuring with the odds against them fits that theme. In this special episode, Kate and Adrian sit down to talk with Julio Macias, one of the show's breakout stars. We discuss the importance of showcasing different Latinx identities on screen, what it's like to play Oscar 'Spooky' Diaz in On My Block, how he brings respect to his role, what Spooky represents, and we even nerd out about comic books. Spoiler: we totally need him in a comic book movie!
