Ep #12 Bex Carlos: Growing up and figuring it out

Francesca and Bex (@loudmouthbruja) discuss growing up with “romantic longing” as “weird, smart” women of color. Bex shares what it was like growing up first generation Mexican American in St. Louis, how the 2016 presidential election inspired her to start a podcast to “make sense of the melaninless”, how she’s using witchcraft to connect to her ancestral roots, and what it’s like for her to be in an interracial relationship. They talk sex, sex ed, bad sex ed, and more!
