RR 04: Hey NBA, Just Feed Latinos the Rock

Did you catch the Cohetes game last night?  What about the Espuelas? The Toros?

NBA’s Latin Night promotion is front and center on Mike’s mind. While the professional basketball league claims it is addressing a need and owning up to its responsibilities to the Latino community Mike believes it’s really just all about the Benjamins.

This week on the show we also revisit the Saturday Night Live controversy as a new wave of online protests attempt to force NBC and Lorne Michaels to hire Latina performers. We here at Robles & Rosado HQ are shocked that this is still such a hot button issue especially when you consider that we’ve been hammering home a solution to this issue on every one of our episodes so far.

Despite first impressions both Mike and Pedro are positive, happy-go-lucky guys. In an attempt to actively combat the dreaded Latino Crab Syndrome, they lay out a campaign to promote a positive image of Latinos in Hollywood and the media with their #LatinosForLatinos hashtag and series of posts.

To wrap things up, the Bochinche segment focuses on the increasingly ugly child support battle between music superstar Marc Anthony and his beauty queen ex-wife Dayanara Torres.

Robles & Rosado are especially feisty in this episode (and especially funny) but please don’t get upset or offended. We’re just having fun…

RR 01: Doing It For Ourselves

In this new web radio series Emmy winning comedian Mike Robles and radio host and journalist Pedro Rafael Rosado give you their humorous, unique, and occasionally controversial take on the Latino Experience.  The focus in this inaugural episode is on the growing clamor from social media savvy bloggers calling for equal Latino representation on U.S. entertainment vehicles.  The rebellious pair also tackle the perennial Latino vs. Hispanic debate, Hollywood starlets playing up negative stereotypes, and “Sabado Gigante”.
