Podcast: Horchata Squad 2.0: New hosts, same drink

Welcome to Horchata Squad 2.0, an official Emerald opinion section podcast with hosts Veronica Fernandez-Alvarado and Marian Fragoso.

The first topic this season is about the recent school shooting in Parkland, FL, and explores what gun ownership, media attention and mental health mean within communities of color.
