About Coco’s Barrio:

Born from an original live radio performance series, our podcast, Coco’s Barrio, is Latinx on-the-air with a satirical flare – a mix of SNL and old time radio. Hosted by the affable Silvia Pontaza (Coco), Teatro del Pueblo’s home-cooked podcast provides ample sabor with original music, interviews with community leaders and artists, and local acting talent producing original audio drama.  This hidden gem invites everyone into a warm space where they can laugh, engage, and think about the issues of the day.
