St. Louis Public Radio is joining forces with two local Latino professionals to launch a new podcast, “We Live Here Auténtico!” The podcast promises to highlight and celebrate the Latino community in St. Louis and beyond.

On Friday’s St. Louis on the Air, “We Live Here Auténtico!” co-hosts Gabriela Ramirez-Arellano and Alejandro Santiago discussed the new podcast, which debuts today.

“We Live Here Auténtico!” has roots in two separate podcasts. “Auténtico” began in 2019 with a focus on bilingual Latino professionals and small business owners. St. Louis Public Radio’s “We Live Here,” started in 2015, shared stories about race and class. The combination of the two programs aims to unite their philosophies.
