Today we begin with an homage to legendary Colombian photographer Nereo López, who recently passed away. In this interview, Nereo chats with Patricio Lerzundi about his participation in the group of intellectuals known as the "Barranquilla Group," to which other famous people belong, such as the writer Gabriel García Márquez and the painter Alejandro Obregón.

Later, we speak with hip-hop singer Audry Funk, one of the most representative artists of her genre in Puebla, Mexico. Her first album, Soul Green System, was launched in 2006. Since then, she has worked within the community of workingwomen and highly marginalized adolescent youth in Puebla.

Moving on, we talk with Rafi Mercado in Puerto Rico, a multi-faceted director who reflects on film in his country, about his career as a cinematographer, and his role as creative director of the mythical New York club, Sound Factory.

And finally, in Brooklyn, we speak with Josefina and Adrián Mejía, owners of Mexico 2000. Years ago, this mother-son team opened a small shop where they sold tacos. They were so successful with their delicious food that they expanded their business, and now they have a new restaurant.
