  1. Hello, my name is Nicolás Pérez, I just wanted to say that I’m a proud to be hispano and I’m glad that we have been growing in the city of memphis. I attended the Life Church and we offer spanish translation for non English people. Im part of TIRRC program to help new DACA applicants it’s relatively new, so I’m all about in helping out in the community. Im glad you are talking bout the hispanic history in memphis, i have lived here for about 20 years and I have noticed the changes as far as panaderías lol and other stablishments, thanks for your time and I love your podcast let’s keep the momentum going there’s always something to do for our hispanic community. 👍
