CHARLENE BENCOMO is a proud Chicana and mama of two, born and raised in southern New Mexico. KAT SÁNCHEZ, a self proclaimed political junkie, is a queer, first-generation Latina raised in the Texas/Mexico borderlands. You can hear more from these mujeres on the Pocha Podcast where they routinely navigate the world as Pochas, women, survivors—and, occasionally, as chingonas. Find them on Instagram: @PochaPodcast; and Twitter: @PochaPodcast.
Podcasters Charlene Bencomo and Kat Sánchez turn the disparaging term "pocha" into a source of pride.
